Oram Weaver

October 16, 1915 — July 25, 2015

Ogie was born October 16, 1915, in Neinda, Jones County, Texas to John and Hautie Weaver. He graduated from Neinda High School in 1933, where he won several awards in track and field and basketball. He joined Neinda Baptist Church in 1931 where he was later ordained as a Deacon. He married the love of his life, Fayrene Gardner in 1941 in Anson, Tx. He and Fayrene had one son, Oram Houston Weaver, Jr..

Fayrene preceeded him in eternal rest in 1968. He married Louise Crow in Anson, Tx in 1973, Louise passed on in 1976. He married Oleta Hodnett in Hamlin,Tx in 1981, and she passed on in 1993.

Oram worked for The Coca-Cola Company as a truck driver for the area surrounding Abilene, Tx, becoming a farmer in his home town of Neinda some years later. He spent 12 years as a Lease Foreman in the oilfield for Western Production Co. before opening a gas station on South Central Ave. in Hamlin Texas for The Texas Company (Texaco). He operated the Texaco station for 20 years before retiring in 1982.

In 1966, he moved his membership from Neinda Baptist Church to First Baptist Church of Hamlin, Tx (later becoming a Deacon) and moved to Hamlin the following year. In his retirement, he delivered Meals on Wheels, was a member of the Board of Trustees of the Neinda Cemetery Association, and served as caretaker of the Neinda Cemetery for 16 years.

He enjoyed watching basketball and baseball on TV, following the Texas Rangers and Dallas Mavericks closely, harvesting and shelling pecans for family and friends, and seeking to serve the community in any way he could.

He shook off this mortal coil and plunged forth victoriously into the loving arms of his Lord and Savior on July 25, 2015.

Survivors include his son, Oram H. Weaver, Jr. and his wife Marolyn R. Weaver of Hamlin, Tx; his grandson, John Reynolds Weaver, of Hamlin, Tx; and numerous nieces and nephews.
