Mr. Weed was born Oct. 16, 1915, in Wray, Colo. He left home at an early age and eventually joined the military. He first came to Alaska during World War II when he was stationed on Adak Island. For many years, Mr. Weed was an Alaska Teamster, working as a truck driver, until his retirement. He was a member of Christ Community Church and a lifetime member of the Elks Lodge. His family wrote: "He loved to play cards at the Elks Lodge. He and his wife, Nora, loved to go to Las Vegas in the winter. In the summer they loved to spend time at the homestead in Sterling and also fish the Kenai River for reds. Lyle loved to go for walks around Westchester Lagoon and watch the waterfowl -- and the times he pushed his great-grandson in the stroller was a bonus. He will be missed and we look forward to meeting again." Mr. Weed was preceded in death by his wife, Nora; daughter, Dorothea; brothers, Charles, Glenn and Louis; and sister, Verna.
He is survived by his sister, Dorothea Oestman of Wray; stepdaughter, Emily Johnson of Cedar Rapids, Iowa; stepsons, Richard Johnson of Cedar Rapids and Frank Garfield of Michigan; grandchildren and their spouses, Kelli and Jeff Toth of Anchorage, Jennie Johnson, Tawnie and Todd Kerska, and Michael Johnson, all of Cedar Rapids; great-grandsons, Matthew Toth, Austin Kerska and Jamie Johnson; and great-granddaughters, Katelynn Toth, Kaitlin Kerska and Marianne Johnson.
