Obituary of Edward Allen Weeks
Edward Allen Weeks, “Animal,” 66,
formerly of Tamaqua ceased shenanigans on Friday, December 6, 2019 at the Wilkes- Barre VA Medical Center.
He began his high-jinks on December 21, 1952 and grew up like most kids did back then by walking uphill to school both ways in the snow. He graduated from reform school in Dobbs Ferry, NY in 1969 and joined the Navy. After serving his country he became a mechanic until an accident left him unable to work.
He was known for busting your chops and occasionally faces, but would strike up a conversation with anyone. He was an avid animal lover. He also loved the Flyers, smoking cigars, and a good glass of bourbon. He enjoyed riding and tinkering with his motorcycle until his injury and old age made him graduate to a scooter.
Recently he became known around town as the guy who would ride his scooter through the Burger King drive-thru to get his tacos but he never let the fame get to his head. Edward is survived by many, loved by most, and will be sorely missed. For those interested in paying respects, sharing stories, and toasting the old man; a celebration of his life will be held at Kneppers Inn on December 15, 2019 from 12-2pm.
