I was sad to hear of the passing of one of my high school teachers, Steve W. Weadock, 10/23/1948-06/21/2011. According to my mom, he had been battling cancer and I knew that his prognosis wasn’t all that promising.
Mr. Weadock was an attentive and caring teacher at a time of college preparation and helpful to me and a of my high school cohorts during our junior and senior years. I appreciated my mother sending the obituary from the local Sidney Ohio newspaper an only wished I would have connected with him a few years later. He was an excellent teacher and someone recognized for a life devoted to his community.
Stephen "Steve" W. Weadock, 62, of 1218 Taft St., passed away Tuesday, June 21, 2011, at noon at his residence. He was born on Oct. 23, 1948, in Celina, the son of the late Jerome Weadock and Ruby (Huffman) Weadock, who survives in St.Marys.
