MSgt John C. Weeks died 17 November 2019 at Ft Benning, GA while serving as an active-duty Airmen in the United States Air Force. He was born on 10 February 1985 in Vail, CO. He is survived by his wife Bridget Weeks, his two young daughters Brooklyn and Madison Weeks, his parents John and Cindy Weeks, brother Marc Weeks and half-brother Adrian Gonzalez.
John had a passion for the mountains (in particular snowboarding, hiking and camping–he was also an excellent rock climber), riding motorcycles, playing music on his turntables (his record collection takes up half a room!), wrenching on cars/trucks, but most of all his family, friends, and service to country. His laughter was iconic, his sense of humor was second to none, and his loyalty to everyone and thing was in a class of its own. He was a man of few words most of the time, but his heart and love spoke at immeasurable volumes.
John spent most of his childhood growing up in France with his immediate and extended family before moving back to the US at age 14 in 1999. He enjoyed traveling with Mom, Dad and Marc, skiing/boarding in the French Alps, and spending time with his cousin Alex and family. Vacations were spent in Belgium with Grandpa Sigmund, Normandy with his cousins, the Alps, the Pyrenees and the south of France along with numerous trips to Tunisia.
Upon graduating high school John entered active duty Air Force in 2003. John went on numerous deployments that took him to Iraq, Afghanistan, Qatar, Kuwait, and other locations. He was proud to step up to the call of duty and sacrificed time with his family, holidays, birthdays and other significant life events such as the birth of his first child in support of the mission.
He was near completion of a B.S. in Electrical Engineering at the time of his passing. He worked very hard at his studies while serving his country. This was just one example of his commitment. Everything he did was on behalf of his girls and his family.
His first duty station was at Lackland AFB in TX where he met his wife. He enjoyed an incredible and loyal group of friends that were considered family away from home. In fact, one of his many humorous nick-names came from that group – “Juan Semanas”. There were many holidays spent with the group, floating the river (including dogs in tubes and homemade floating coolers with speakers), motorcycle riding in the hill country, pool/bar hopping, and of course DJ’ing.
John was stationed subsequently at Hill AFB in UT where he and his wife had their first daughter, Brooklyn, in 2013. They were blessed again to form a family of friends where many memories were made hiking, camping, snow skiing/boarding, riding motorcycles, and of course holiday get-togethers.
His final duty station was at Ft. Benning, GA where their second daughter, Madison, was born in 2018. He humored his wife (who was delighted to be close to the coast again) with beach vacations with his parents and cousins.
John’s presence was felt by everyone close to him. You will never find a more loyal and loving father, husband, son, brother, family member, close friend and service comrade. The loss is immeasurable. We celebrate John’s life, love, and family until we meet again “on the other side”.
