John’s greatest love in life was his family; they were everything to him. He was most proud of his children and grandchildren. John liked to Polka dance and enjoyed days spent by the pool. He looked forward to attending car shows, dirt bike racing, watching softball games, and cherished the times and memories with family and friends while vacationing in the Wisconsin Dells.

John will be deeply missed by loving wife, Jean; four children, Paula (fiancé, Bruce Kruswick) Weber, Joseph (Tanya) Weber, Pamela (Nick) Watermolen, and James (Alicia) Weber; eight grandchildren, Thomas (friend, Casey Rinas) Weber, April (fiancé, Darren Spencer) Herlache, Ryan (Heather) Herlache, Alex Herlache, Andrew Herlache, Bruce Weber, and Mason and Peyton Watermolen; three great grandchildren, Jack and Pearl Spencer and Colton Bertrand; sister, Marvel (Roger Sr.) Hartel of Sturgeon Bay; and longtime friends, Dick Stuewer and Steve Greninger.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Walter and Caroline Weber; two sisters, Dawn (George Sr.) Poh and Patricia (George Jr.) Dufek; and nephew, Thomas J. Poh.

John’s life will be honored with a funeral service held at 1 pm on Saturday, March 10, 2018 at Huehns Funeral Home in Sturgeon Bay with Fr. Carl Schmitt, of Corpus Christi Parish, officiating. He will be laid to rest in Schumacher Cemetery.
