Darrell Ernest Weaver, age 68, passed away September 27, 2022. He was born July 30, 1954, in Evergreen Park, Illinois. In 1976, at the age of 21, he enrolled in the U.S. Army and was honored to be an Airborne Ranger (2nd Battalion, 75th Regiment). After serving with the US Army, Darrell spent a large portion of his career as a corrections officer at the Pierce County jail. Eventually he returned to the armed forces, serving in the Washington Army National Guard and retired as a Sergeant Major. He served two tours in Iraq in the 161st Infantry Regiment and 81st Brigade Combat Team during his time on active duty. He retired in 2010. Darrell lived the majority of his life in Gig Harbor, Washington, and eventually settled in Salome, AZ, in 2013. In Salome, Darrell served at the local VFW Post #3708. He enjoyed visits with his family, riding his quad in the desert, and harassing local businesses with friends.

Darrell was preceded in death by his wife, Sheila Hazel (Elliott) Weaver, of 36 years. He is survived by his three daughters Rebecca (Weaver) Montgomery, Connee (Comfort) Finch, and Alicia (Comfort) Goodman; nine grandchildren, Kaleb, Kyler, Isabelle, Amanda, Christian, Meara, Ethyn, Brandon, and Marcus; and three great- grandchildren.
