Pacific, MO—Michael G. Weaver, 69, president of Walker Products, and member of the Automotive Sales Council, passed away peacefully on Nov. 23, after his long battle with prostate cancer. He was born and raised in St. Louis and graduated from the University of Missouri.

Weaver began his career in the automotive aftermarket industry when he was hired at BorgWarner/Ballwin-Washington. In 1985, he had an opportunity to move West and invest in a small carburetion component manufacturer in Los Angeles, named Walker Products.

West was a true visionary whose leadership skills in strategic planning and marketing directed his team to become a global manufacturer and distributor of quality automotive products. With manufacturing and distribution facilities in the US, Mexico, APAC and the UK, Walker Products remains family-owned and operated with over 400 team members servicing more than 1400 customers worldwide.

The management team, which includes Weaver’s three sons, Jeffrey, Matthew, and Scott, remain committed to fulfilling his legacy, plans, and to continue his mission of teamwork, appreciation and growth for all Walker team members and partners. The visitation and requiem mass will begin at 10 a.m. on Jan. 14, at Most Sacred Heart Catholic Church in Eureka, Mo.
