DAVID ANTHONY WEBER August 19, 1957 – August 19, 2019 Following a courageous battle with cancer, with family at his side, Dave passed away on August, 19, 2019, at the age of 62, at Seven Oaks Hospital. He will be missed terribly by his love of 20 years, Fiona Wiebe, his daughter Dana (Shane), sons Sean and Kyle (Mallory), step-son Michael (Jenna), grandchildren Payton and Guinevere, sister Leslie (Joss), his beloved Auntie Nellie, and countless friends. Dave is predeceased by his parents, Olga and Walter and his Uncles Peter and Alec. Dave worked for Willmar Windows for numerous years before finding his true passion as an independent contractor. Those who had the privilege of knowing Dave also knew of the great loves in his life – family, friends, hunting, fishing, his farm, and his trucks. He was always happy to share stories about learning the ins and outs of auto mechanics at his father’s autobody shop, how his mother defended him as a long-haired teenager, growing up with his extended family, his Auntie Nellie’s cooking, and above all else, how proud he was of the three children he raised. A celebration of Dave’s life will take place Monday, August 26th, 2019, at 2:00 PM at Klassen Funeral Home. Dave’s family would like to give a heartfelt thanks all of his friends, as well as the medical staff at Seven Oaks Hospital. In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Cancer Care Manitoba.

Dave, my old friend. We worked together all those years ago, and we became friends both in and outside of work. And like many work friends we drifted apart over time. Even though it's been twenty years, I have such strong, distinct memories of you. Your laugh, almost a giggle. Your happy-go-lucky nature. Your willingness to always help anyone. You were the first one there when my house got broken into to secure my door until it could replaced. You 'taught me' how to shingle a roof! You made me get up there with you! You were my 'date' when he wereboth single and went out on the town.You were my friend. Goodbye my friend. I am sorry to see you go but I am happy to have known you.

You were a good friend when I needed one. You were a good father, and for the 16 years we were married, we raised three awesome human beings. When we separated, you eventually met and went on to share your life with Fiona, being that special person for each other.
I'm so glad we had a chance to talk a few days before your passing. Granted, we were bawling within minutes, but it was so good to reminisce. We laughed about the time we were painting the house and you tried to surprise me by having it done when I got home from daycare with Sean. The sight of you on your knees with a rag, trying to mop paint off the carpet. The way you explained the mishap... "The paint can fell off the ladder, flipped over and over in the air and landed on its bottom! But all the paint jumped out!"
Oh my... so many memories! Water gun fights with the neighbors using garden hoses. Watching you giggle like mad when you "got him good!" Going to the Oasis on hot, sunny days with a carful of kids, coming home with a carful of sand. Filling the back of the truck with thousands (!!) of water balloons for the Willmar picnic every year and watching the kids enjoy their very own watery ball pit.
I'm glad we had the chance to express our love and pride in our children. To say that we had a good life. There was love. There will always be love. Goodbye David. I'll miss you.
