On April 29, 2018, following complications from a fall, Ross Neil Weber, born June 1, 1928 in Albion, IN, most recently of Pitt Meadows, BC, passed away peacefully with his family by his side. Dad leaves behind a very large family living far and wide.
Predeceased by his loving wife, Mary (Canic), and brothers-in-law, Pat McGaughey and George Matkovich. He leaves 7 children, Mike (Debra), Betty Ann (John), Dorothy (Glenn), Mary Ellen, Phil (Elsie), Ross Jr. (Jodi) and Keith (Heather). Also,14 grandchildren and 9 great-grandchildren. Sisters-in-law, Irene (Canic) Matkovich and Anne (Canic) McGaughey. It was very important for Dad to remain connected to all of his family on a regular basis.
Predeceased by parents Thad Weber and Anna (Sinderson).
Surviving members of Dad’s US family are: siblings, Phillip Horn and John Weber, Nancy Horn, Alice (Weber) Sturgill and Rita (Weber) Hoover; 1st cousins, Nelda (Weber) Owen, Thelma (Weber) Ott, Dorothy (Friskney) Hake and Donna (Friskney) Oberlin. High school friend of 77 years.,Phil Norris, and many Canadian and US nieces and nephews.
For over 42 yrs. commercial fishing on the west coast of BC and carpentry formed the foundation for our family. Within those years, Dad built 3 of our family homes.
Retirement meant golf and chess. At both he excelled. As a mentor, his uncle George Sinderson’s approach to golf, established an idea, or desirable attitude in Dad’s mind. Ross and Mary moved to the Dorado subdivision in Pitt Meadows. Ross immediately joined Meadow Gardens Golf Club. He loved to get up early most mornings, hop into his golf cart and make the two-minute trek to the pro shop, enjoying a coffee and a little B.S. with the seniors’ group before heading to the first tee. Meadow Gardens was so important to Ross.
