He studied at Joplin Junior College, now Missouri Southern State University and then tranfered to the University of Oklahoma at Norman, where he studied drama and was a track star, setting records in several events. During World War II he served as a pilot in the United States Navy. At the war's end, married Gerry Stowell, by whom he had three children - Richard, Robert and Rustin Weaver.
