Brandon Weaver, 37, of Dawsonville, died Nov. 22, 2014.
He will be remembered as a great husband, father, friend and coach for many of the youth in the community.
Brandon was born at Northside Hospital in Atlanta on Jan. 24, 1977 and was raised in Cumming.
After graduating from South Forsyth High School in 1995, he continued his stellar football career, first at Georgia Military College in Milledgeville and ultimately finishing his playing days at Dakota Wesleyan University in Mitchell, S.D., where he received his bachelor's degree in 2001.
On Dec. 20, 1998, Brandon married the former Heather Buice of Cumming at Daves Creek Baptist Church, where he would become an active member after accepting Jesus Christ as his savior in January 1996.
He was viewed as a cornerstone of the church, serving in many different capacities while having a natural affinity for serving and leading the youth.
After graduating from Dakota Wesleyan University, Brandon excelled in a sales career, most recently with Empire Distributors. However, he will be most remembered for his unwavering passion and love for his three sons.
Brandon's profound charisma with his remarkable ability to lead, teach and motivate was also witnessed by all of the young athletes who participated in the Dawson County Parks and Recreation sports programs.
His unbridled zeal for life and his ability to lift up others will forever have a lasting impact on all of those his life touched.
Survivors include his wife, Heather; three sons, Kinkade, Briggs and Gunnar; his parents, Alan and Rita; and a brother, Richmond; various other relatives also survive.
His life was celebrated with services at 2 p.m. Nov. 26 at Daves Creek Baptist Church, 1400 Old Atlanta Road, Cumming. Graveside services followed immediately afterwards.
In lieu of flowers, donations were requested made to the Weaver Family Fund at any Citizens Bank of Forsyth County branch or mailed to Citizens Bank of Forsyth County, P.O. Box 2820, Cumming, GA 30028.
