Mr. Weller was born on Oct. 24, 1942, in Litchfield, a son of Edgar Taake and Mildred Irene (Hamilton) Weller. He served in the US Navy.

Mr. Weller worked for Monterey Coal until he retired.  He loved living in his country paradise, crafting masterful pieces in his woodshop and walking the pathways through the curated acres of trees. Mr. Weller loved to hunt and walk the stream alongside his six-pack of Jack Russell terriers. One of his guiding principles was that of being self-reliant. He rarely asked for help, but was always ready to offer help to anyone and became a beloved, trusted counsel to family and friends.  His masterful quick wit and charming humor endeared him to all as anyone who spent time with him will attest.

Generous beyond any expectation, Mr. Weller consistently and selflessly did for those he loved.  He taught those willing to learn.  He mentored and guided.  Mr. Weller was a leader filled with greatness who made the people in his life better for having known him.  

The driver for all the good deeds, the muse to his magnificent life works was his adoring wife, Patty, who tirelessly supplied loving care for him through his last breath. 

Mr. Weller is survived by his wife, Patricia J. (Komor) Weller; a daughter, Cheryl Weller of Litchfield; brother, Marvin (Jackie) Weller of Independence, MO; and many nieces and nephews.

He was preceded in death by a daughter, Jeannie Riemenschneider; six brothers, Dale Weller, Edgar Weller, Jr., Jack Weller, Dewey Weller and LeRoy Weller, all of Litchfield, and Dennis Weller of Springfield; and five sisters, Eve Joyce Westwood, Maxine Kluthe, Dolores McGlothlin, Freda Kieslar and Bonnie Smith.
