Barry Edmund Weber was born on November 9, 1947 to Clarence and Florence (Koll) Weber. He grew up on a farm in Morgan Township where he attended St. Michael’s Catholic School and graduated from Morgan High School in 1965. Barry then went to the National Guard where he was honored to serve his county. In his young adulthood, he played trumpet in local bands and has many great memories of those times. One of those greatest memories was meeting Ann. They later married on January 24,1970. They resided on a farm east of Morgan where they raised their 6 children. Barry enjoyed farming his whole life and you could hear him talking about it on a daily basis. In his extra time, he proudly served on the Morgan Township Board. He also had a couple side jobs to keep busy. One was working for DelMonte where he held many positions over the years. He also drove school bus for Cedar Mountain School for many years. Barry kept his love for music going later in life as he played taps for the VFW Post #5771. Barry treasured the moments with his family whether on the farm, on the lake, and in the woods. He taught his children and grandchildren many life lessons… some which continue to be secrets. However, they all know not to leave the grocery store without something sweet.
Barry is survived by his wife Ann (Eichten) Weber; his children, Jason (Traci) Weber, Jon (Gennifer) Weber, Jenell Weber, Jered (Tina) Weber, Josh (Amber) Weber; grandchildren, Lauren Weber, Paige McKinney, William Weber, David Weber, Emilee Weber, Claire Weber, Jude Weber, Maverick Weber, Maycee Weber, Caylee Weber, and Daylen Weber; 4 great-grandchildren; 10 siblings; and many more family members and friends. He was preceded in death by his parents, brother Ron, and son Jordan.
Barry was one of the “good ones” and we will miss him along with the warmth of his smile.
