David Weidner

David Weidner

David Allen Weidner, of Hanover, passed away peacefully surrounded by his family at Huron Shores Hospice in Tiverton on Wednesday, May 31, 2023. He was 45.

David was born in Orangeville on July 3, 1977. He had a quiet gentle soul and truly enjoyed long haul trucking for Campbell's in Durham. He loved being silly with his son and attending to his needs. He was the type of man who put everyone else first before himself, often trying so hard to be ok when around Marrick once his health failed. His quick diagnosis and treatment left him sore and tired, but never did he show that to anyone. He will be remembered as a fighter right to the end.

Survived by devoted wife and supporter, Lisa Weidner of Hanover. Proud father and buddy of his hero, Marrick at home. Dear son of Donna (Tim) Murray (nee Grosz) of Orangeville and son in law Audrey Weidner of Hanover. Remembered fondly by his grandmother Shirley Grosz of Florida. Remembered by his brother Steven White and in laws Lynn (Chuck) Boulianne, Doug (Laura) Weidner both of Hanover and Louise (Scott) Brady of Delhi. Missed by his uncles Jerry (Mary Ellen) Grosz of Illinois, USA and Ronald (Laura) Grosz of Indiana, USA as well as many nieces, nephews and their families. Predeceased by his father in law Lance Weidner and grandfather Gary Grosz.

Family and friends are invited to a visitation held at Mighton Funeral Home, Hanover, on Sunday, June 4, 2023 from 1-4pm.   A Funeral Service will be held at the funeral home on Monday, June 5, 2023 at 11:00 am. Pastor Jen Brown officiating. Cremation to follow with a private family inurnment in Hanover Cemetery.

Lisa & Marrick,
On behalf of those lucky enough to have had the Dave Experience as I like to call it we are truly sorry for your loss. While he was at LTI we got to know this gentle giant. We got to share in some of the video calls and Dave was always beaming when he spoke about Marrick. On a personal note I was so happy when you guys were able to make it out that day for a bit of water time. I only wish it could've happened again. He was a unique man and we remember him fondly. He will forever be the "PieMan". Stay strong, Sue & LTI friends

Dear Lisa and Marrick,
My sincere condolences. I knew Dave as a fun loving, devoted dad. When he was away on the road he often 'walked' Marrick to the bus, via ipad, to wish him a good day at school. Arriving home, days Marrick seemed to fly off the bus, I would know Dave was home ready for an epic night of video games. One of the last days Dave met Marrick at the bus to offer a hand with his backpack, I remember Marrick saying, with confidence, 'It's okay dad, I've got this'. Dave was always proud of Marrick. I was fortunate to share that moment with them.
