Initially unsure what professional discipline to follow, Dr. Weaver greatly admired his Uncle, an oral surgeon. Dr. Weaver applied to medical school was instantly accepted and the start of a compassioned medical career serving others commenced.
Although a native of Ohio, Dr. Weaver completed residency in Boston before relocating to Rhode Island to serve on the medical team of several RI hospitals. Dr. Weaver quickly became enamored of the coastal topography and beautiful landscape of RI and made the state his permanent home. Not only did the local geography satisfy his sole, it also provided Dr. Weaver an opportunity to pursue his passion to sail.
As the owner of his own sail boat and a crew member aboard a friend’s vessel, Dr. Weaver was a skilled racing yachtsman, an avocation that provided an opportunity to contemplate natures many maritime moods. Dr. Weaver found this a pleasant respite from the hectic professional demands as a busy hospital surgeon.
