Jeff Weyer, 64, of Ferdinand, passed away at home on Saturday, January 11, 2020.
Jeff was born to Edward and Leonarda Weyer. Jeff graduated from Forest Park High School in 1973 and Indiana University School of Business in 1977. On July 9, 1977, Jeff married Joan Reckelhoff at St. Ferdinand Church.
He was manager at Hyplex Corporation in the late 1970s. Then, he was an Operations Manager at Wilmes Window for 10 years. While working there, he began his own business in 1980 growing Christmas trees. In 1990, Weyer Tree Farm and Nursery became Jeff’s full time occupation. The business sold thousands of ball and burlap white pines for landscaping, was Monrovia Nursery’s biggest distributor of potted plants in Southern Indiana, and grew and sold Christmas trees, upward to 5,000 a year. In 2017, Jeff started working towards retirement and settling the business down.
