Charles Weaver : 'Mickey Navigator', 489th Bomb Group, USAAF

Charles and Elaine Weaver

It is with great sadness we report the loss of our friend Charles Weaver who passed away quietly in his sleep on 24th June 2014 at the age of 89.

At the age of 19 he flew with the Bodine crew as a specialist ‘Mickey’ Navigator and was awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross.

He later returned to Halesworth for the 489th Reunions with his wife Elaine and also with his daughters and grandson. A very special family, and so proud of the part he played during WWII.

He was a good man, kind and brave and he will be sadly missed by us all.
