July 11, 1966 ~ July 7, 2022


Resided in: Fletcher, NC

Terence “Duane” Weaver, who would have celebrated his 57th birthday on July 11th, left this earth tragically on his Harley on July 7, 2022.

Duane was a 1984 graduate of T.C. Roberson High School and was employed by Linamar of Arden. He was preceded in death by his father, Jack Lee Weaver.

Left to miss him every single day is his son, Cody Weaver of Fletcher; daughter April Younce of Tennessee; his mother, Betty Weaver of Fletcher; sisters Pamela Weaver of Fletcher and Annette Melton of Asheville. Duane has two grandchildren, Greyson and Amelia, nieces, nephews, and a multitude of friends who loved him as their brother, and a very special lady, Lynn Harvey. He also loved his Doberman, Zeva.

Duane was multi-talented – a mechanic, most recently proud of his 1982 Pontiac Prostreet TransAm and his 1986 Corvette. He also could construct any project he attempted. Duane loved his Harley and rode all his life.

Duane never had to convince anyone he was a Christian, he lived it every day. We can only imagine the look on his face when he met his Savior.

The service will be at 2:00 p.m. Thursday in the Patton Avenue chapel of Groce Funeral Home. The family asks for fellow riders to escort our Duane’s body to the final resting place, Maney Branch Cemetery, Weaverville.

The family will receive friends at the funeral home one hour before the service on Thursday.

  1. I went into work Friday 7/8/22, 2nd shift and posted next to the time clock was the horrific announcement that we had lost Duane. I was totally stunned. My heart sank and I had to fight the tears welling up. I certainly did not know him well but I need not know anyone a long time nor well to know whether they are a good person or not. Duane was truly a good guy – always friendly, always kind. He was one of those whom I enjoyed seeing at work because of his positive countenance and ever helpful spirit. ‘Definitely a hard working man of heart. He will be greatly missed. My deepest, heartfelt condolences to his loved ones – his family, friends, acquaintances and co-workers. Our world has definitely lost another good soul. RIP Duane – thank you for your warm spirit and ever-present, always friendly smiles.

  6. Duane I just didnt know what to say when I heard the news. I guess after “are you sure” to the person telling me was, “oh my Lord, Ms Weaver is gonna be devistated”! As we’re so many people!! You are loved and respected by more than you ever knew! You can now grab Tim and go for a peaceful ride on those streets of gold. I think of him everyday just as I will you. You were always a good friend to me and I will always be thankful for the goodtimes we had! My heart is broken for your Mom, Cody and sisters. Ms.Weaver if you ever need anything, you know where I am! Don’t hesitate for a minute to let me know! My prayers are being sent for the entire family. Ride free, ride strong, RIP Duane..until we meet again! Tammy

  14. Duane I can’t believe that your really gone. So many memories we’ve shared as husband and wife over the past 15 years. Our son Cody is missing his dad but facing life and your loss, as a man that you would be proud of. Never a dull moment at our home in Weaverville where friends and family would come to share our space, we always made a great team. When we moved to Fletcher to be close to your mother, I know how greatful you were that I was by your side, always willing to take a little burden from your busy day since you were always doing for others. Unfortunately life brings hard times interfering people and emotional upheavals that change the course of things and that only time can heal. We never got that time due to your passing. Although we were no longer together Duane, you’ll forever be a major part of my life as my Husband and Cody’s Father. May you Rest In Peace.
    Love and Forgiveness

  15. I grew up and graduated with Annette and knew Duane in the younger years. I really got to see in recent years the very nice man he became once we started working together. Duane always had a smile and kind words every time I seen him. I know his family will always feel the void in their hearts. My thoughts are with all the family and friends. Rest In Peace Duane!

  27. Such a tragedy to lose a good guy in this cruel world. Duane you were very respected. You listened to me and I listened to you. We both endured way to much hurt that left a scar but yours is healed. I was glad you were smiling again. I just wish we could talk one more time but God had other plans. Rest easy brother, eat a doughnut for me.

  29. I have had the pleasure of knowing Duane for the past seven years and working closely with him for 2 1/2 of those years. I was with Duane through some difficult times in those years but had the pleasure of seeing just how much faith, character, and integrity he had. Was very proud to call him a friend for those years and present. My thoughts and prayers to family.

  33. NOTHING

    Nothing is the same
    This pain will remain
    Forever engraved in my brain.
    Your face, your laughter, your
    Blue eyes, your voice that echoes
    In my mind over and over again…
    Nothing will ever be okay without you.
    You didn’t deserve this, my dear brother. I love you, Bubba.

    Love, Pamalam
