Lee Weaver

Lee Weaver is a man of many hats. Professionally, he holds a BS degree in Petroleum Engineering from Texas Tech University; in his psyche, he’s a “wanna-be” cowboy; and in between, a sometimes entrepreneur.

Entrepreneurial activities – cattle raiser, horse trader, hay producer (selling hay I raised and brokering hay with other producers). Owned and operated feed store.

Cowboys and culture – hats off to the city of Fort Worth for that very apt phrase; we love Fort Worth! But we love San Angelo more – that’s where I grew up with a father who instilled Western culture in my life. but in the best sense of the word ‘cowboy’ as a job title I can’t honestly claim – I never had to make my living at it! In West Texas vernacular, a ‘real’ cowboy looks, talks, and is 100%. 

San Angelo is Texas ranching country. Again, borrowing a familiar FW phrase, ‘Fort Worth is where the West begins.’ I fully support that claim but enlarge upon the idea: West Texas is God’s country and His throne is in San Angelo! (Okay spiritual friends – I admit to a bit of irreverence!) And in God’s country, the sky is higher and bluer, and it rains occasionally!
