Ronald F. Weafer, a long time resident of Woburn, passed away peacefully after an extended illness. The beloved husband of Krishta M. (Stryjick) Weafer, Ron was seventy three years of age.

Born in Woburn, Ron was the son of the late Ronald J. and Mary E. (MacDonald) Weafer. Having grown up in the “Choate Hill” section of the city, Ron was educated at St. Charles Elementary and Jr. High and then off to Keith Academy in Lowell, where he graduated with the Class of 1964.

Ron continued on with his education continuing on to study at Boston College, where he received his Bachelor’s Degree in government. May of 1968. Ron then enlisted in the United States Air Force during the Viet Nam War. He very proudly served his country over the next four years, returning home September of 1972., with the rank of SGT.

Ron lived in Reading for a short time had two sons and a daughter, whom he loved. Day trips and a few family jaunts to Disney World, zoo or the beach, were special times with the children.

In 1986, Ron married his best friend and confidant, Krisha Strijck. They met through a great group of friends, and shared some pretty wonderful times together. From the baseball games, football games and golf courses their weekends and vacations were generally sports filled! Ron had begun golfing at a very early age. Starting with caddying for his Mom when he was young all the way up to being a pretty good and consistent golfer, enjoying every swing!

Ron’s professional life spanned over thirty years at the Woburn 4th Middlesex District Court, as a Probation Officer. He went the extra yard for his kids, continuously working with them and helping them find better ways to handle situations for themselves and their families.

Ron and Krisha enjoyed travelling. Ships, boats and, planes were always the best mode of transportation! Alaska, Colorado, Las Vegas and New Mexico up to Canada and over to Nova Scotia, they enjoyed finding all the special little spots throughout.

Ron loved to feed the birds throughout the year, and really enjoyed watching them.

Ron was a very kind and thoughtful man. His disposition was gentle and his willingness to help others was phenomenal. He touched a lot of lives over the years, young and old alike and will be remembered as truly,“a nice guy.’

Sadly Ron was predeceased by his parents.

He is lovingly survived by his wife Krisha, his children Ronald E. Weafer, his wife Anaika of CA , Stefanie Rogers, her husband Wayne of VA and Michael Weafer, his wife Amy of Reading, sister Anne McGee, her husband Donald of Tewksbury.  Grandfather of Zeia, Auni, Max, Nathan, and Olivia.  A Celebration of Life will be held at the convienence of the family.  Arrangements are under the direction of the Lynch-Cantillon Funeral Home, 263 Main Street, Woburn.
