Julian Carter “Shot” Weathers, Jr., 66, of St. George, entered into eternal rest on Thursday, April 13, 2023, after a courageous battle with Leukemia.
A Memorial Service will be held 2:00 PM Sunday, April 23, 2023 at Duncan Chapel United Methodist Church with the Rev. Beth Whetsell Matthews officiating. The family will receive friends following the service in the Fellowship Hall.
Julian was born on October 30, 1956, in Orangeburg, a son of the late Julian Carter Weathers, Sr. and Miriam Thompson Weathers. He was 1974 graduate of St. George High School and a 1978 graduate of Newberry College where he received a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology and Psychology. He had many careers during his life, social worker, counselor, paralegal and most recently, floral designer. Floral designing is where “Shot” found his niche. His designs were simple yet elegant and contemporary with a flair of his own. Julian loved to travel; the Dominican Republic was his favorite spot. He was a farm boy with a gypsy spirit, living in several places in the southeast, Charlotte, Beaufort, Savannah, Myrtle Beach and Atlanta. He enjoyed watching and cheering on the Dorchester Academy Varsity Lady Raiders basketball team. Julian loved to share his love and spirit; his hugs were special, and you felt better after you received a “Shot” hug.
Surviving is his sister, Joy (Mark) Westbury, St. George; aunt, Carolyn Hutto Patrick, Santee; several Thompson and Weathers cousins; all at the Pendarvis tent at Indian Field Campground; and special friends, Stephanie Twitty, Judy Byrd and David Lavigne.
