Obituary for Edward A. Weeks, Sr.

Edward A. Weeks, Sr., 79, of Morrison, IL, died Monday, May 13, 2024, at Genesis Medical Center East in Davenport, IA, surrounded by his family.


His funeral service will be held at 12:00 PM on Saturday, May 18, 2024, at Crossroads Community Church, 300 West South Street, Morrison, IL, with Pastor Jon Eastlick, officiating. A visitation will be held from 10:30 AM until the time of the funeral. Cremation rites will be accorded following the services. The Morrison Chapel of the Bosma-Renkes Funeral Home is in charge of arrangements. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the Home of Hope Cancer Wellness Center of Dixon, IL.


Edward was born March 19, 1945, in Morrison, IL, to Emery “Doc” & Frances (Johnson) Weeks. He was educated in the Unionville Grade School and later received his GED from Sauk Valley College. He then continued to take some classes at Sauk. On September 28, 1963, he married, Gloria Spencer, with whom he celebrated 60 years of marriage just recently. Ed embarked on his career at Climco Coils in Morrison, later serving as road commissioner for Mt Pleasant Township. Subsequently, he contributed his skills to Northwestern Steel and Wire in Sterling and the Whiteside County Highway Department until his well-deserved retirement. An avid hunter and fisherman, he shared annual expeditions to Wyoming and Montana for coyote hunting with his eldest son. Additionally, he found joy in participating in hot rod power tour car cruises alongside his twin sons. Ed and Gloria enjoyed RV’ing south and wintering in Florida, Alabama, Texas and Arizona. Their love for adventure led them to explore almost all of the United States, including Hawaii, Alaska, and Puerto Rico, celebrating milestones with unforgettable experiences. They spent their 25th anniversary touring the Hawaiian Islands; for their 35th Anniversary, they took a cruise to see Alaska and they also flew to Puerto Rico and took a cruise to visit several islands. He was not only a skilled handyman, who enjoyed tinkering, but also a pillar of support for his family. He was always there for them and ready to lend a helping hand with repairs and guidance.


Survivors include his wife, Gloria; three sons, Edward Jr. (Melanie) Weeks of Morrison, IL; Martin “Marty” (Jennifer) Weeks of Port Byron, IL and Michael (fiancé Sandra) Weeks of Morrison, IL; six grandchildren, Alyssa (Adam) Coopman and Taylor (Kaleb) Hockman, Jacob Weeks and Alex Weeks, Audrey (Matt) Denas and Morgan Maydew; four great-grandchildren, Kyson Hockman, Owen and Grayson Coopman and Blaire Denas.


He was preceded in death by his parents; one grandson, Corey Edward Weeks; four sisters, Angela Spears, Marian Shepard, Betty Rice and Donna Weeks; three brothers, Raymond, Emery and Bobby Weeks.
