FAYETTE COUNTY, WV (WOAY) – A myriad of community members are mourning after Sib Weatherford passed away earlier this week.
Weatherford was known for leading an active lifestyle despite living with CIPD for the past eight years.
Longtime friend Mike Graves says he was one of the bravest men he knew. Being in a wheelchair never stopped him from doing things like zip lining or rafting.
“He was just a person you wanted to be around that you wanted to be like,” Graves said. “You know his fight, his drive, everything that he’s gone through in the past 10 years. He was just a great family man and a great friend.”
Weatherford leaves behind a wife and their children along with his parents and brother.
Everyone at WOAY sends their thoughts and prayers to those grieving.
