Few men were so loved as my Uncle John. He loved, more than anything else, to be around his family. A fiercely loyal family man. When he spoke, everyone in the room would stop what they were saying and listen.....because, anything and everything he would say was compelling. When he was hurting, he would be praying for everybody else. When I went through difficult times, he would pray for me. When you were around my Uncle John and you were Irish, you realized how proud you were to be Irish!When I would ask my Uncle John his opinion, even on something personal, you always got a straight answer. Always. It was something in life you could always count on.I feel truly blessed to have been his nephew and if I can grow old being half that man he was, I will have been successful in life. My Uncle John......he will be an inspiration to me for the rest of my days. The toughest yet most loving man I have ever known.God bless you Uncle John.......until the day we are together again!

Dear Marie and family, I was very saddened to hear of John's passing. I recall a lot of great memories when we worked together. John was a gentleman and a good friend. You could always count on John for watching your back when we were on patrol. My wife Ellen and I always remember the great time we had at the cookout you had at your house. He will always be in our prayers.Charles and Ellen CaralyusLakewood Ranch, Florida

My condolences on your loss. I had the privilege of working with John at the Somers State Police barracks for several years. He was a good Trooper and a humanitarian at heart. He will be missed by his co-workers and the many friends he made over the years.

Received the following from George Johansen who asked me to forwardjackRode many patrols with John on the cross west exp, rte 287. Met and hired his son john when I was dep supt of port authority pd a few yrs ago.  Last time I saw John was at the graduation and we had a few laughs.  He was a great guy and a kick ass partner that you never had to worry about.  His son John looks just like him.  I am sorry to learn of his passing and cannot pay my respects because I'm out of the country .  If you are able to forward this to his family, I would be grateful.  God grant him external peaceGeorge

Dear Aunt Marie and my awesome cousins; John, Judene, Jennifer, Jerald, Joey and Jeannette,While I am physically far away and unable to be with you at this time, I truly am with you in my thoughts, feelings and memories.So many of my personal happiest memories growing up involve spending time on Tulip Lane and visiting with all of you :)...even though we were always HOURS LATE :). They also include a wonderful week, despite my sunburn :) , spent with you guys down in Lavallette. Uncle John is of course irreplaceable.......his impact on anyone who knew him was profound and so positive. I love you all dearly and hope your current sadness will soon be replaced by so many wonderful and warm memories of one of the greatest people I have ever encountered!My sincerest condolences to you all.Chris McCabe

I had the blessing of growing up across the street from the Weirs. They are family to me. I have many warm memories of Mr. Weir. We could always count on him and my Father to get their singing part in the 12 days of Christmas wrong and send us into fits of laughter. One Christmas Eve I will never forget Mrs. Weir calling to see if my Grandfather was available to come over to help assemble some bikes because Mr. Weir was just throwing the pieces off the back porch. He will be very missed! I am glad him and my Father will be together looking over all of us. I am sorry I can't make it up for the service. Caitlin had major shoulder surgery today. Please know you are all in my thoughts and prayers. -Cheryl

I always had a connection with Mr. Weir. .He was a veteran and a drummer. He had a swing era way of holding drum sticks. Very cool. My family is sorry for Your loss.

Some of our fondest childhood memories are spending Christmas evening with the Weir family. We always had a wonderful sing-a-long and played the craziest games. My father and Mr. Weir were always getting their lines mixed up and making us laugh until we cried. We lost both cherished men this year, they will always be my heart. May they be together keeping each other company and keeping the angels laughing for all eternity.
