Obituary for Lawrence Weber

Lawrence Weber was mercifully, peacefully, and joyfully signaled home by his Lord and Savior, and to his wife Lady, Jo, on Sunday, Oct. 12, 2014, at the grand age of 'Skatey 8.' We can hear Mom lovingly teasing, 'Honey, what took you so long?!!!' Lawrence was born in Toledo, Ohio on June 1, 1926, to George and Rachel Weber. He proudly enlisted in the United States Navy on August 25, 1944, as a boy of 17 and retired almost 21 years later as a man and boatswain mate 1st class. He bravely fought in World War II, the Korean War and Vietnam War. Dad proudly boasted to have 'gone around the world three times and through it twice' on such ships as the USS J.C. Butler DE, USS Edwin R. Howard, USS Tawakoni ATF, USS Pictor and DE Destroyer Escort, as well as sea going tugs. Upon retirement, Dad utilized all his U.S. Navy experience to engineer his way up to foreman rigger at Kaiser Steel in Napa and worked for another 21 years before happily retiring. Throughout both careers, he modeled stellar service and work ethic for all his children. Dad loved hunting, western movies, and Mom's prime rib, rare. He was a man of wit and quips: 'It's like putting socks on a rooster!' He saddled up and rode his horse through the age of 75. He never passed an American flag without saluting it nor heard our national anthem without removing his cowboy hat and standing at attention. Dad especially loved 'a hug around his neck.' He was truly loved by all who knew him. He is survived by his two elder sisters, Marcella Shank and Geraldine 'Geri' Carmen; seven children, Linda 'SuLing' (Bill) Huntley, Vickie 'Hoss' Weber, Karen (Kent) Wann, Nancy 'Fancy' (Charles) Morin, Barbie (Steve) Lewis, Brian Weber and Scott (Debbie) Weber; He delighted in many grandchildren and great-grandchildren calling him 'Pop.' Dad was preceded in death by his wife, JoAnn; daughter Marsha (Geoff) Stone; and younger brother, George Weber. Dad, we will see you and Mom one day in our new mansions and bodies. Until then, we will miss you but will strive to make you proud and hope God periodically opens a window for you and Mom to look down and smile upon us. We salute you Dad! A memorial service will be held at 2:30 p.m. on Oct. 22, 2014, at the Sacramento Valley National Cemetery, 5810 Midway Road in Dixon, Calif. The family will grieve in a private gathering following the ceremony.
