Richard L. Weber passed away Saturday, March 14, 2020 in Richmond, Texas, after a well-lived life – a life of personal integrity and trustworthiness.
He was born June 21, 1940 in Greeley, Colorado, to Fred and Mollie Weber, and was the fourth of five children. He is preceded in death by his parents and sisters Dorothy Paxton and Barbara Layton and a brother, Wayne Weber and his beloved grandson, Trent Weber.
He is survived by his loving wife of 58 years Jane (White) Weber, son Jeff Weber of Katy, Texas and daughter Sandra Phillips and her husband Max Phillips of Rockwall, Texas, and grandchildren Luke Phillips, Molly Phillips, Erin Weber, Reagan Weber, and Reid Weber, and sister Berenice Cantrell of Greeley, Colorado. He is also survived by many loving relatives and friends, including all the wonderful friends at Sugar Creek Baptist Church where he was an active member for 30 years.
After receiving his degree in Civil Engineering at Colorado State University, and finishing parachute training at Fort Benning, Georgia, he served as a Captain in the US Army Corps of Engineers in Etain, France, for three years. Following his military service, he worked as an engineer for Shell Oil Company for 30 years in Los Angeles and Modesto, California and Houston, Texas, and for Monfort of Colorado in Greeley, Colorado, for 4 years and Sabic Technology Center in Sugar Land, Texas for 15 years until he retired in 2015. He had a passion for math, engineering and technology and doing a job well.
He loved this country and attended the Promise Keepers Stand in the Gap gathering of hundreds of thousands of Christian men in Washington, D.C. October 4, 1997 to pray for America. “I looked for a man among them who would build up the wall and stand before me in the gap…” Ezekiel 22:30 (NIV) But his love for the Lord and his family was the center and true north of his life that made him the generous, honorable, much-loved husband, father, grandfather and man of integrity he was. He lived out his favorite Bible verse, “For we are His workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand so that we would walk in them.” Ephesians 2:10
Your presence we miss. Your memory we treasure. Loving you always...
