George Ellsworth Weimer Sr. GORHAM -- George Ellsworth Weimer Sr. was called home on Aug. 28, 2009, after a brief illness. George was born in North New Portland on July 31, 1938. He was the middle son of Mervin G. and Lucille (Luce) Weimer. Throughout his life, George endured many challenges that formed him into a man of quiet strength and unwavering determination. George graduated from Portland High School in 1956 and attended Moody Bible Institute beginning a lifelong love of all things Chicago, especially Garrett's Popcorn. True to character, after his divorce, George and Rita (Dickinson) raised their four children in the Gorham area with love and fortitude. He was a machinist for over 40 years. Upon retirement he enjoyed his children, grandchildren, friends and family. He volunteered at the Animal Refuge League, walked at Shaw Gym, and maintained his fascination with cars. In 2002 George met the love of his life, Martha Pike Cross. They enjoyed traveling, laughter, and friendship. George was predeceased by his parents, Mervin and Lucille; his brother Bob; and his son George Jr. He leaves his beloved wife Martha; children, Karen and her husband Tom Varney of Gorham, daughter-in-law Trish (Dow) of Westbrook, Mark and his wife Sandy (Lindsay) of Windham, Brian and his wife Caroline (Fong) of McLean, Va., Jay Cross and his wife Lynne of Cape Elizabeth; grandchildren, Chelsea and Kelly Rondeau, Matthew and Patrick Weimer, Abigail, Adam, Charlotte and Lillian Weimer, Mason and Emerson Cross and Benjamin Rautenberg; and brothers, Thelman and wife Marguerite, sister-in-law Carol, Mervin and his wife Barbara, and Fred Weimer. George was a man of faith and loved by many. The Lord has called him home with the blessing, 'Well done thou good and faithful servant.'
