Winston Keith Weekley

April 15, 1936 — June 7, 2023

Atlanta, GA

Winston Keith Weekley (Keith) Lt. Col. Army National Guard (ret.) of Atlanta, GA. Keith loved to tell a story, and lived enough in his eighty-seven years to make a million (although he typically liked to stick to 15-20 well-worn standards). Keith absolutely loved people, and helped thousands over more than half a century as a Chaplain in the National Guard, and as a Pastor at numerous churches, including Union Christian Church in Watkinsville GA. Keith loved nothing more than travelling around the world or around the neighborhood and chatting up whoever he met. His many travels took him all over: Mexico, Colombia, Canada, the Bahamas, England, Belgium, Luxembourg, France, Switzerland, Greece, Thailand, Japan, Taiwan, China, Turkey, Peru, Germany, and Korea (and we probably missed a few).  As an avid talker, Keith loved languages, and spoke fluent Spanish (with a delightful Southern accent), and Mandarin, and never missed an opportunity to practice with pen-pals and unsuspecting strangers. As a lifelong learner, Keith was pursuing a Doctorate in Theology as a way to improve his ministry.

Funeral Service is Saturday June 17, 2023 11:00 AM at Union Christian Church. He will lie in state in the church from 10:00 am until service time. The family will visit at the funeral home, Friday June 16, 2023 from 6:00pm to 8:00pm. The interment will be in the church cemetery.

A devoted father and grandfather, he is survived by his son Kevin Weekley of Lithia Springs, GA, daughter Karen Fitch of Springville, AL, and daughter Kristin Weekley of Wakefield, Massachusetts, and their spouses Gabrielle, Tommy, and Tony. He is also survived by his grandchildren: Michael (and his wife Samantha), Cody, Brandon, John, Hannah Harper, and Oliver, as well as his Great-Grandchildren Gabriel, Arya and Elijah. He is predeceased by his parents Arthur and Ruby (Mahathy) Weekley, sons Bryan and Tyler, his first wife, Sue White and his second wife, Nancy (Sanchez) Weekley.

Lord & Stephens Funeral Homes, West, Watkinsville is in charge of arrangements.
