Shan Ross Still

Shan Ross Still: October 5, 1993 – December 31, 2021 (age 28)

Shan Ross Still was born on October 5, 1993 in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma. He was living in Hinckley, Utah when he went to be with the Lord on December 31, 2021.

Shan went to school in Paul’s Valley, Oklahoma until he was ten and then the family moved to Casper, Wyoming. He was definitely all boy from day one, playing in the dirt and loving hunting, fishing, and anything to get outdoors. He and his friends were always getting into something good — or not so good. Some things we parents will never know.

Shan was also a bull rider in Junior and High School Rodeo. He won his first buckle riding bulls in Lander, Wyoming and was so excited that he went on to win many others.

Shan was a great kid and turned into an amazing man. He had an extremely hard work ethic, drilling rigs in North Dakota, Texas, Wyoming, and Utah. He had just become an inspector for an electrical transmissions company as well.

Shan fell in love and had to meet the one girl he was going to spend the rest of his life with, Shayd Draper.

Shan was preceded in death by his great-grandfather Ross Still, great-grandmother Helen Still, great-grandfather Glen Spencer, and aunt and uncle Clayton and Carol Fisher.

Shan is survived by his parents Robert and Shelly, sister Britany Troub, brother-in-law Casey Troub, Nana Vicky Heger and husband Larry Heger, and Mema Bennie Still.

He was loved by so many people, and he will never know how much he will be missed. You can never put into words how much his family loved him.

Arrangements are entrusted to the care of Bustard & Jacoby Funeral Home, 600 CY Ave., Casper, WY 82601.

Mark William Kwedor left this world surrounded by loved ones on December 29, 2021 at Wyoming Medical Center. He came into this world on February 18, 1962 in Wheatland, Wyoming. He was born to Karen Ann Scott and Richard William Kwedor.

Mark was raised in Casper, where he met his first wife Kimberli Ujvary and had their son Ryan. He spent all of his career working as a Garage Door Technician. He truly loved what he did; he was the best and would be there to fix the problem any time he was needed. Mark was very hardworking and had no days off. Mark was always very active, spending most of his time with his son Ryan or catching up with friends. He was frequently seen riding his chopper or another motorcycle around town. He also loved spending time at the Senior Citizens Center, where his mother spent her entire career and where he also became a board member. He enjoyed visiting with all the seniors. He was also an expert-level selfie taker.

Mark was preceded in death by both sets of grandparents, his mother Karen, his brother Richard Raymond Kwedor of Cheyenne, his nephew Alex Richard Cooper of Casper, and his daughter Trinity Carlson of Casper.

 Mark is survived by his father Richard Kwedor; his son Ryan Kwedor; his wife Joy Kwedor; his daughter Lillie Landers and grandson; his sisters Julie Provence, Pam Still, and Kimberly Cooper; his brothers Craig Kwedor, Richard Glen Kwedor; many aunts and uncles; and many nieces and nephews. Mark is also survived by Wayne and Sally Osborne and the Ujvarys, whom he considered family.

Throughout his life, Mark was an avid arm wrestler. Many times he brought home first place trophies when he competed. Anyone who knew him would say he was the strongest man they had ever met. Mark loved spending time outdoors and with family and friends. 

Mark was very loved and respected. He would help anybody who needed a hand. He always said, “You ain’t never met anybody quite like me,” and how true that was. He will be missed dearly by all.

Pastor Jack R. Weaver

Pastor Jack R. Weaver: 1933 – 2022

Pastor Jack Rockford Weaver “Paw Paw”, 88, of Casper, WY entered the beautiful gates of Heaven on Wednesday, January 5, 2022. After a courageous battle with cancer, he was surrounded by his loved ones at home when the Lord said to him, “Well done, good and faithful servant.”

Jack was born on May 25, 1933 in Petal, Mississippi to Arthur & Mildred (Gentry) Weaver and grew up in Forrest County with his siblings Bernard, Fred, and Dot. At 17, he enlisted into the US Navy, where he fought in the Korean War. One of his fondest memories of his time in the service was being stationed with his brother Bernard in Coronado, California. Jack was honorably discharged from the Navy in 1954 and returned to Mississippi. In 1959, Jack had a son, David, with a previous wife, Dimple. Jack became a pastor in 1979 and went on to lay ground and was the pastor at Old Enon Baptist Church. On August 9, 1988, Jack married the love of his life, Mildred (Garner). He always said he wanted a large family and on that day that wish came true. They spent the first 3 years of their marriage in New Augusta, Mississippi in “The Big House.” Here they shared many great memories of chasing around their young grandchildren and tending to their garden. In 1991, they moved to Casper, Wyoming, where he would be pastor at Preach Unto Them Jesus and Evansville Baptist Church. Jack and Mildred spent 33 wonderful years together, where he showed anyone who saw them together exactly how a man should treat his lady; they were side by side holding hands until his last moment.

To say that Jack was a Godly man is a true understatement. Over his lifetime, Jack’s proudest moments were spent doing the work of the Lord. Oh, how many people he must have brought to salvation! We can rejoice in that. He managed to live several lifetimes in one and will be greatly missed by anyone who was blessed to know him.

Jack is preceded in death by his previous wife Bertha, his son David, his granddaughter Danielle, both of his brothers, and both of his parents. He is survived by his wife Mildred; his sister Dot; his children Rose (Gary), Sandi (Kenny), Kim, Randy and Lori (Tim); his grandchildren Jennifer, Jeremy, Bobby, Bookie, Christi, April, Kahla, Stephanie, Jessica, Heather and Samantha; and his great-grandchildren Barry Jr., Colin, Aidan, Daley, River, Willow, Annabelle, Caitlyn, Tristan, Alexyss, Kahlanni, Jordon, Justus, Taylor, Ella, Phoebe, Ashlyne, Bailiegh, Emma, and Iraylee.

A funeral service will be held Saturday, January 8, 2022 at Casper Church of God Prophecy, 2000 S. Washington St., Casper, WY 82601.

Memorial Gifts will be received by Lori Sweet, 2059 S. Poplar St., Casper, WY 82601.
