19, after an extended illness. Weaver, known affectionately to his friends as Dickie, also was among the creators of Razzle Dazzle Dallas and, although his name wasn’t on the incorporation paper of Resource Center, attorney Mike Anglin, who filed those papers for the organization in 1983, said Weaver served on its first board and became an early president of what was then known as the Foundation for Human Understanding.

FHU was created by members of the Dallas Gay Alliance board, where Weaver also served at the time. He and the original board came up with the awkward name for the new organization, also then known as the AIDS Resource Center because they believed people in Highland Park would donate to human understanding but not to AIDS.
