Edward Ira Weeks

January 27, 1949 — June 12, 2023

Edward Ira Weeks, known affectionately as Ed, was called home to be with the Lord on June 12, 2023. Born on January 27, 1949, in Burlington, North Carolina, Ed was a loving husband, devoted stepfather, and proud grandfather who touched the lives of many with his faith, kindness, and warm spirit.
Ed was a dedicated and hardworking man, serving as a Civil Engineer for the South Carolina Department of Transportation for 30 years. His commitment to his work and the community was evident in the countless projects he contributed to, helping to shape the beautiful state he called home. Ed's work ethic and dedication to his profession were truly inspiring, and his impact will be felt for generations to come.
In his personal life, Ed was a devoted Christian who found great joy and solace in reading his Bible and engaging in daily devotion. His faith was the cornerstone of his life, guiding him through both the joys and challenges that life presented. Ed's unwavering faith was a testament to his character and a source of strength for those who knew him.
Ed's love for his family was boundless, and he cherished every moment spent with his beloved wife, Connie Lynne Weeks. Their love story was one for the ages, filled with laughter, joy, and the sweetest of memories. Ed was a loving stepfather to Jacob Howard and his wife Janea, and a doting grandfather to his two step-grandsons, Jackson and Johnathan. He also leaves behind his father-in-law, Earl P. Hudgens Jr., sister-in-law Renae Lackey and her husband Brian, nephew Reagan Lackey, and niece Charlotte Lackey. Ed's love for his family was evident in everything he did, and his presence will be deeply missed by all who knew him.
Ed's interests were as diverse as they were heartfelt. He had a passion for gardening and took great pride in his yard work and flower gardens. His green thumb and attention to detail created a beautiful oasis for his family and friends to enjoy. Ed also loved going downtown Greenville, where he would often be found exploring the city's many attractions and events. His love for his community was infectious, and he was always eager to share his favorite spots with those he loved.
One of Ed's favorite pastimes was mowing the lawn and tending to his property. This simple act brought him great joy and satisfaction, as it allowed him to connect with his neighbors and friends. Ed was a social butterfly who loved nothing more than spending time with his family, friends, and neighbors. His friendly nature and warm smile made him a beloved figure in his community, and his absence will be felt by all who had the pleasure of knowing him.
Ed's life can be best described by the words loving, faith-filled, and friendly. He was a man who lived his life with purpose, guided by his unwavering faith in the Lord. His love for his family, friends, and community was evident in everything he did, and his legacy will live on in the hearts and minds of those he touched.
As we gather to celebrate the life of Edward Ira Weeks, let us remember the love, laughter, and joy he brought to our lives. Let us honor his memory by living our lives with the same faith, love, and kindness that he embodied.
