He was a loving and devoted husband, father, and Pappy. His greatest joy in life was his family whom he loved with all his heart. He was a small business owner in Townsend, Delaware for more than 20 years. He enjoyed hunting and four-wheeling. In his later years his favorite pastime was spending time with his grandson, Andrew.

As a teenager, he accepted Jesus Christ as his personal savior. He was a man of strong faith and dedicated his life to serving at Faith Baptist Church in Smyrna, Delaware, where he was a deacon for more than 10 years.

Tweed; four sons, John Ryan Tweed (wife Sharon) of Magnolia, Eric Tyler Tweed (wife Bethany) of Dover, David Charles Tweed (girlfriend Illiana) of Townsend, and Carl Taylor Tweed of Townsend; his pride-and-joy grandson, Andrew William Tweed, of Magnolia; two sisters, Cynthia Reynolds (James) of Lititz, PA, and Rose Garcia (Carlos) of Elkton, MD; and his grandfather, Francis Ulmer, of Elkton, MD.
