H.V. Weaver was born on a farm near Reading, Hillsdale Co., Mich., Aug. 16, 1856, his parents being H.H. and Hattie Weaver. Young Weaver attended the public schools of Reading until he was eighteen years old, when he left the parental roof and went forth to see some of the world. Later, having satisfied his desire for travel, he took up the study of undertaking and embalming as a profession. He also studied medicine and his being associated with medical men aided materially in his proficiency in his chosen work. Mr. Weaver graduated from Clark's College of Embalming at Cincinnati, Ohio, and has his diploma from that institution. He also has a license issued by the State Board of Health of Indiana and one from the State Board of Health of Illinois. He is acknowledged to be one of the best funeral directors in this or any other locality, performing his duties with a quiet ease and courtesy that have won for him many warm friends and supporters, who readily recognize and appreciate his valuable services. At present he is connected with the mercantile firm of Hoevet & Ruge, of Lowell.
Mr. Weaver was united in marriage Nov. 11, 1891, to Miss Hattie Flynn, of Rennselaer, and to them have been born three children, two boys and one girl. He and his family are held in high esteem by all for their many rare qualities.
