John Wayne Weikel was born July 14, 1939 in Houston to Glen and Patricia (Arlitt) Weikel. While serving in the U.S. Army, John met and married Darlene (Ferris), his wife of 50 years, who preceded him in death in January 2011. Together they raised two sons, Charles Wayne Weikel and Kenneth Lee Weikel.

After honorable discharge from the Army, John was a data analyst for Texaco and retired in 1995 before moving to Kerrville.

John's kindness and generosity will be remembered by many. His love of God, airplanes, cars, gardening, knife making, cooking and grilling is surpassed only by his devotion to the Masonic Lodge (member of Fredericksburg Lodge). We all appreciate your friendship and thank you for being such a great man.

John was preceded in death by both parents; wife; and sister, Patricia Ann Deiss (Weikel).

Survived by his children, Charles Wayne Weikel and wife Jodette (Kerrville), Kenneth Lee Weikel (Houston); grandchildren Joshua Wayne Weikel (Chicago), Sandra of (Houston) and Jadette Gonzales and husband James (Kerrville), two living nephews, Alan Deiss and wife Laurie of (Buffalo), and Phillip Deiss and wife Mary of (Houston).
