Hendersonville/North Carolina – Chapin Brewer Weed - Born October 7, 1925 in Coral Gables, Florida and died November 13, 2011 under the care of Four Seasons Hospice in The Elizabeth House, Flat Rock, North Carolina. His wife of forty-four years Rose Yungman Weed, of Pine Island, New York, pre-deceased him. He served his country in both World War II and the Korean Conflict. He was a decorated war veteran of the Army Air Corps Division reaching the grade of Staff Sergeant and serving as Flight Engineer/Gunner. On two occasions he saved crew and B17 aircrafts by flying the damaged planes back to base when both pilot and co-pilot were killed. He attended the Rectory School and Kent School in Connecticut, and Williams College.

Sparky was a remarkable man in so many ways. Tho we only knew him later in life, his stories about road trips and cruises remain in our memories. I think he is cruising the heavens and planning routes across the roadways crowded with angels. Safe travels - know your memory remains with those who loved you.

I am very sorry to hear about Chapin. I had never met him but talked to him on the phone a few times. I wrote the book about Weed genealogy and history and it was truly nice to speak to a kindred spirit. He told me about his travels with his cousin Joyce. He sounded like a man who lived his life to the fullest. He also told me about how he tried to do the family genealogy and didn''t get anywhere and was glad that it was getting done. I was doing research when I read about Chapin and I wanted to express my sympathies and condolences to the family. My deepest sympathies, Jack Weed
