Linda Weaver

Dad will be dearly missed.. He married my mom in 1971, then we moved to Germany, our new dad, mom and us four kids. Dad took us to a lot of neat places in Germany, like the Rhine River, Rotenburg, and many other neat places. On one occasion, we traveled on a hovercraft to London and also went to France. After about three years we moved back to the states. We moved, a lot! Dad always wanted us to stop at all the historical markers when we drove back and forth across the US, but we weren't as interested as he wished we were.. When we were kids, he took us camping and fishing, a lot! I'm so thankful for the good memories as well as they not so perfect ones.. all of which build character. In 1982 after my parents divorced, dad and I didn't communicate very often for a number of years.. I don't remember when Dad and Deb began coming to Pennsylvania where I lived for 18 years, but we got to see Dad and Deb frequently in those years.. it was a wonderful blessing! We grew much closer than when I was a kid. About 10 years ago, the kids and I moved back to Arizona, so we didn't get to see Dad and Deb in person, but we sure talked, a lot! Dad (and Deb) are so giving of themselves.. Deb loved my dad dearly and I'm so very thankful for her great love for my dad! I believe it was her care that allowed him to be with us a little longer.. HalleluYah! So, now a void will remain in the place dad occupied in my heart.. until we are together again with the Lord...

Gerald L. Eastman


Gerald L. Eastman, age 89 of Fernandina Beach, FL passed away on July 29, 2023.

Born on March 4, 1934 to Ernest and Hazel (Davis) Eastman. He grew up in East Barre, Vermont. After graduation, he attended college for a while and decided to join the Air Force. He spent the next ten years proudly serving his country. After retiring from the Air Force, he joined the Army. He went on to work in the Human Resource department of the Army for ten years.

By a chance meeting in Pennsylvania through a mutual interest group, he met the love of his life, Deb Bagdoyan. The two were married on October 13, 2001. Together, they navigated and explored the United States by pulling a camper visiting 41 of the 50 states.

He was known for his sweet, fun loving, outgoing personality. He loved to have fun and enjoy life. He loved good food and after getting his belly full, a quality nap was in order. Deb called him “World’s Greatest Napper” recalling he could sleep through anything and often did. He was often joined in his napping sessions by one of their three cats- Lucy aka “Daddy’s Girl”.

Gerald leaves behind his loving wife, Deborah (Bagdoyan) Eastman of Fernandina Beach; son, Steven Eastman, daughters, Linda Weaver, Lisa Seals, and Cheryl Trujillo; all from Arizona.
