Resident of Sacramento
Virgil L. Weatherford passed away Friday, Oct. 25, after a long struggle with diabetes and congestive heart failure. He leaves behind his wife Jean Weatherford, sister Esther Franks, son Darrel Weatherford, and two daughters Lori Hornback and Deanna Brown. Additionally, he was proud to consider as his family his wife’s children James Gerow, Diane Colvin, Dana McLean, Dawn LaRosa, Michael Gerow and Michelle Gerow, and many nieces and nephews. There are 11 grandchildren and 18 great-grandchildren, all of them so greatly loved and enjoyed by Virgil.
Virgil grew up in Woodland where he attended school and then worked at a service station, finally owning one of his own. He went on to work for the State of California Department of Transportation, where, after 37-plus years, he retired. Fishing was his favorite pastime. He will be missed by many.
