Jeffrey Derek, son of Paul and Mary (Fultz) Weidner, was born on December 16, 1970 in Fort Wayne, Indiana. He grew up in Fort Wayne and graduated from Tri Junior-Senior High School in Straughn, Indiana. After high school, Jeff took college courses online. He later was in management at various pizza restaurants and was a Youth Pastor before he started trucking for Roadlink out of Minnesota. He also was an Individual Support Professional and worked in management in Indiana and Texas with individuals having developmental disabilities and was an Independent Contractor for Mosaic at Home in the same field in Iowa.

In 1995, Jeff was united in marriage to Kathleen (Eykholt) Humbert and welcomed her two daughters. Together they had two sons. Jeff and Kathy moved to Kanawha in 2016.

Jeff was a very humble, gentle, patient and loving husband, father and grandfather. He majored in sarcasm and always had a funny, witty thing to say. Jeff loved his family deeply. His prayer was that God would use him to draw others closer to Him.

Jeff is survived by his wife Kathy; children Danyelle (Austin) Yoder, Katie Pratt, Ethan (Rachel) Weidner, and Grant (Alyssa) Weidner; grandchildren Jace and June Yoder, Espen Pratt, and Aiden and Lily Weidner; and siblings JP Wideman and Marta (Harold) Liechty.
