Jimmy Lynn Weaver passed away on July 6, 2024. He was born in Hampton Virginia on August 26,1951 and graduated from Lake Taylor High School in Norfolk.

After graduation Jimmy was drafted into the Army where he received mechanical and electrician training. Upon discharge Jimmy made his way to the Outer Banks where he founded North Beach Services in 1987.

Jimmy was funny and was always up for a good time. He enjoyed nothing more than a party and did not mind being the life of said party.

Jimmy valued being a part of the Outer Banks community. He was a member of the Duck Volunteer Fire Department. He volunteered for the Southern Shores Civic Association at the Southern Shores marinas and was a fixture with his pig cooker at All Saints Episcopal Church events.

Jimmy was an avid fisherman, duck hunter, and waterman. He participated in the Nags Head, Hatteras and Ocracoke surf fishing tournaments for many years with the Six Fathoms team. He loved fishing the Outer Banks, Core Banks, and in the Neuse River on his skiff with his children and on buddy JB Edwards’ boat “The Crooked Hooks.” Jimmy also hosted a surf fishing tournament on the north beaches for several years.

Jimmy Weaver is survived by his children Tony Weaver (Fran) of Kitty Hawk and Susannah Weaver of New York City; brother David Overstreet of Roanoke, Virginia; nieces Charity Evans (John) and Jodi Estienne (Bobby); nephew Luke Overstreet; and great nephews Justice, Colson, and Carter. Jimmy was predeceased by brother Tommy Overstreet (Betty Jo) of Blacksburg, Virginia.

In lieu of flowers donations may be made in Jimmy’s name to the North Carolina Beach Buggy Association, PO Box 189, Nags Head NC 27959, or the Outer Banks Health Cowell Cancer Center, 4927 S.
