WEIR, Doctor John Angus (1930-2007)
Dr. John Angus WEIR, age 76, passed away suddenly at Queen Elizabeth Hospital while visiting his beloved cottage in Prince Edward Island. Survived by Ann, his wife of 48 years; his sons John (Jennifer) of Waterloo; David (Sandy) of London, Ontario; Michael (Cristina) of San Francisco; and Gregory of Waterloo. Also survived by his sisters Joan (Ray) McCLOSKEY of Charlottetown and Dorothy (Paul) BOSLEY of Toronto. Predeceased by his parents J. Angus and Mary, and his brother Robert. He is also survived by, and took endless joy in, his loving grandchildren: Jack, Connor, Sandy, Luke, Max, Calin and Dylan. John was born in Charlottetown, Prince Edward Island on October 29, 1930 and throughout his years there was more commonly known as 'Jack.' After graduating with a B.A. from St. Dunstan's University (now University of Prince Edward Island) in 1953, he went to London to continue his education at the University of Western Ontario. There he attained his M.B.A. in 1955 and at that point moved to Kitchener-Waterloo to work at Electrohome. It was during this time that he met Ann, whom he married in 1959, and when he formed some of the Friendships that would endure throughout his lifetime. John and Ann subsequently moved to South Bend, Indiana so that he could continue his education. This culminated in John receiving his Ph.D in Economics from Notre Dame University in 1964. They moved to Winnipeg where he became a Professor at the University of Manitoba and it was there that their boys John and David were born. In 1965 they moved back to Kitchener-Waterloo so that John could take a position at what would ultimately become another great passion in his life: Waterloo Lutheran University when he arrived, later Wilfrid Laurier University. After returning to Waterloo, John and Ann welcomed Michael and Gregory to their family. And around this time they moved to Batavia Place in Waterloo where they forged some wonderful relationships with their neighbours that last to this day. John served Wilfrid Laurier University in a variety of capacities over the years: Professor, Chairman of the Economics Department (1968-1978), Vice President Academic (1978-1982), and finally as President (1982 until his retirement 1992). In addition to all of these positions, he was also the self-appointed head cheerleader at countless Laurier sporting events and played Santa Claus at many university Christmas parties. It was at Laurier that John had his greatest success and joy from a professional perspective and it was where he formed some of the best Friendships of his life. From the people on the Board and Senate, to the faculty members he hired and served with, to the people in the kitchen, John aspired to be a friend to all -- and loved nothing more than getting a laugh out of them. His years since retiring were consumed by an insatiable curiosity. Areas of interest over that time have included computers, genealogy, astronomy, photography, politics and Christianity, to name but a few. He also enjoyed nothing more than spending time with his family, including reprising his role as Santa for his grandchildren at Christmas. Resting at the Hennessey Funeral Home in Charlottetown for visitation on Monday 7-9 p.m., then transferred to Erb and Good Family Funeral Home, 171 King St. South, Waterloo for visitation on Wednesday 7-9 p.m. and Thursday 2-4 and 7-9 p.m. The Funeral Mass will be Celebrated by John's good friend and classmate Father Bernie Hayes on Friday morning at St. Louis Roman Catholic Church, 53 Allen St. East, Waterloo, at 10 a.m. Reception and eulogy in the Science Building at Wilfrid Laurier University immediately following the Mass. Due to allergies we request no flowers please. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Heart and Stroke Foundation or the John and Ann Weir Scholarship at Wilfrid Laurier University and can be arranged by calling the Erb and Good Family Funeral Home, 519 745-8445 or In living memory of Doctor John WEIR, a tree will be planted through the Trees for Learning Program by the funeral home.
