Delmer Norman Weston

Delmer Norman Weston of Enumclaw died at his home on Dec. 18, 2014, at age 91.

He was born July 15, 1923, in Osceola, the 13th child of Fred and Margaret (Svinth) Weston. He resided on the Enumclaw Plateau his entire life, attending the Osceola school through eighth grade, then Enumclaw High School where he was named all-conference center of the 1942 Puget Sound Football League. He married Anne Dieringer of Buckley on Feb. 23, 1946. They raised their family on a small farm outside of town. He enjoyed 32 years driving truck for King County Public Works. He was an avid outdoorsman and loved hunting, fishing, and berry-picking, as well as hiking and camping with friends and family.

Following the death of his wife in 1983, he found support through many friends and relatives like Carol Manges and, in his final years, Tessie Twardoski. He enjoyed playing Texas hold ‘em at High Point Village and was always ready for a game of cribbage.

He is survived by sister Doris Fourhman; daughters Elaine (Jim) Clark, Christine (Frank) Ruppert, Leslie Weston and Nancy (Noel) Shima; sons Delmer P. (Cheryl) Weston and David (Diana) Weston; 12 grandchildren and six great-grandchildren.
