Weaver's grandson is also in showbiz
Lewis Willard Weaver, father of “The Bold and the Beautiful” producer Ron Weaver, died Nov. 21 of natural causes in Chatsworth, Calif. He was 102.
Weaver dropped out of school in the eighth grade to get a job and help support his parents and 12 siblings. A car enthusiast at heart, Weaver eventually opened a service station in South Bend, Ind., and a Chrysler/Plymouth dealership in Three Rivers, Mich.
Besides son Ron, survivors include grandson Kevin Weaver, exec VP of Atlantic Records.
