David Miller Weir, aged 67, passed away on January 24th, 2021 in Chambersburg, Pennsylvania. David was born December 3rd, 1953 to David Weir and Mary Weir in Chambersburg, Pennsylvania.

Growing up on the Middle Spring farm helped him form a deep love of nature. Baltimore Orioles, Columbine wild flowers, and Spring Peepers were fond memories of his childhood. David graduated from Penn State University with a degree in Special Education and received his Master’s in Education from Shippensburg University. He earned his private pilot’s license and operated his own Piper PA-12 taildragger. He worked as a Special Education Teacher at the Lincoln Intermediate Unit No. 12 until his retirement in 2013.

After his retirement he relocated to Wyoming where he spent his days watching eagles, moose, antelope, deer and elk between fly fishing trips. When he wasn’t fishing or enjoying time with friends, he dedicated his time to playing and teaching bagpipes, making fly-rods, and building black powder guns.

David is survived by his sons, Ian (Willow) and Dylan (Bailie); and his grandchildren, Finnegan, Maelle, Hayden, Abrial, Rylan, and Jalene. He is also survived by his sister Mary (Donald) and many beloved family members and friends across the country.

No formal services will be held. Friends and family will gather at a later date to celebrate his life.

In lieu of flowers, if you would like to make a contribution in David’s name, we suggest any organization focused on natural conservation and education.

I shared a few memories of David on facebook....David and I were close friends, classmates and co-workers. We played in the Shippensburg HS orchestra together and later started working for Lincoln Intermediate Unit together. One spring, I bought an ant farm for my classroom. David told me not to spend the money buying ants for in it and that we could go out in the mountain and dig up and ant hill for the ants. So, after work one day, he picked me up at my house and we headed for Big Flat. David was MR Nature, so I assumed he knew what he was talking about, however, shortly after he started to dig in the ant hill, he dropped the shovel and started running down thru the woods twerking and jumping. By the time I caught up with him, he had his pants off and was trying to get the ants out of his pants! Another time, we had a reindeer made out of tissue paper for on a float that the school was making for the Chambersburg Christmas Parade. After the parade, we moved the reindeer into the lobby of the school to use a decoration beside the Christmas Tree. I can't remember now who had the cigarette of the students.... and in horsing around flicked the lighter just a little bit too close to the tissue paper reindeer....and POOF the reindeer went up in flames. It could have been quite serious. The next morning when we arrived at school, there was an outline of the reindeer on the carpet in tape marking the "scene of the crime". Yep!! David and his sense of humor...I'll miss you Dave!

My heartfelt condolences to the family for Dave's passing. We became good friends shortly after he moved to Wyoming and
spent quite a bit of time together off and on while fishing together. We also did some hunting together as Dave graced our antelope camp the year before last. He had a great time as did the rest of us. He has certainly been missed in this near term but also will be throughout the time we have left. 'Ol Dave was always ready to help whenever he could; truly a kind and caring man. RIP 'ol buddy!
