Craig Kenneth Weaver

Craig Kenneth Weaver, a man known for his infectious laugh & unwavering loyalty to friends and family, passed away on February 10th, 2024, in Denver, North Carolina. He was 60 years old.

Born in Asheville on July 26th, 1963, Craig’s adventurous spirit blossomed early. This love for the lake would define his life, whether it be tinkering with his boat, taking a ride with friends, or simply soaking in the serenity of a sunset.

After graduating from T.C. Roberson High School, Craig’s thirst for knowledge led him to the University of North Carolina-Charlotte, where he earned a degree in mechanical engineering. His sharp mind and meticulous approach soon found him designing innovative heating and air systems, a career he pursued until his last days of life.

But Craig’s true passion transcended the technical. He was a magnet for laughter & political banter, weaving warmth into every gathering with his quick wit and easy smile. His loyalty to his friends was unwavering, their shared adventures forming an unbreakable bond. And when the day was done, he found solace in the unconditional love of his feline companions, Hatchet & Molly.  

Craig leaves behind a legacy of laughter, kindness, and a deep appreciation for the simple joys in life. He is survived by his father, Kenneth Weaver of Hendersonville, NC, and his niece, Kristen Stamey (Andrew), along with their children Finn, Jase, Grey, and another great-nephew, Bryce Thompson, all of Georgia. Craig is also survived by his former wife, Michelle Stolarcyk of New York. He was preceded in death by his mother, Helen Weaver, his sister, Karen Weaver, and his nephew, Keaton Thompson.

A celebration of Craig’s life will be held on Saturday, February 24th, at 1:00 PM at the Good Samaritan Funeral Home in Denver, North Carolina. A brief service will follow at 2:00 PM.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations to the Humane Society of Lincoln County.

As the sun sets on Lake Norman, casting its golden glow across the water, Craig’s memory will live on: a reminder of a life well-lived, a heart full of love, and a spirit forever free.

As water reflects the face,
so one’s life reflects the heart.

Proverbs 27:19
