Ernie Weber-7/1/2017

Ernest J. Weber, age 79, formerly from Collegeville, Pa., and a resident most recently of Gilbertsville, Pa., passed away on July 1, 2017, at Parkhouse Nursing and Rehab Center with family by his side.

Born November 20, 1937, to the late Walter Gotlieb Weber and Dorothy Peart Weber. He was predeceased by siblings, Walter J., John (Jack) P. and Charlene Weber Koski.

He was the treasured husband of Juli (Weitzen) and beloved father of Iris Tonti (Aldo) of Hamilton Square, N.J.; Cynthia Stratis (Ted) of Hamilton Square, N.J.; and Denise Leonard (Ray) of Robbinsville, N.J., and grandchildren Aldo, Jr., Emily, Mackenzie, and Samantha. He was also survived by many beloved nieces, nephews, and cousins.

He enjoyed driving many, many, many miles, especially with Weber Trucking tractor trailer, and as a member of Teamsters Local 107. He worked at several local businesses including Powerhouse Antiques and Sales, 309 Office Furniture, Sears Roebuck/Signal Delivery Service and J&J Tire.

Ernie enjoyed gardening and love of family and friends. He loved his pets dearly. He enjoyed working! During his last year and a half, he was at two different nursing home; at least two practitioners said they never saw anyone work so hard to get better. He endured much with overlapping illnesses and continued to smile and pray and encourage others. Ernie was a loved man.

Relatives and friends of Ernie Weber are invited to attend his funeral on Friday, July 7, 11 a.m. at Covenant Presbyterian Church, 515 W. County Line Road, Hatboro, Pa., 19040 (Horsham Twp.). Family will receive condolences and viewing time will be from 10 to 11 a.m. before services. Burial at Montefiore Cemetery, 600 Church Road, Jenkintown, Pa. 19046, immediately following the service.

Donations are so appreciated in Ernie’s name to Covenant Presbyterian Church or to your favorite charity.

  1. Although I only had the opportunity to know Ernie for 2 years, I will always remember his kind eyes, giving heart and positive attitude. He was a friend who literally “went the extra mile” (2,192 miles, in fact) for me so that he and Juli could offer me their help two times in person. Thank you, Ernie! Well done and “thumbs up” to you in Heaven!

  2. Ernie,
    It’s been an honor knowing you. I am so grateful that I had the opportunity to see you how many lives you touched with your kindness, your bravery and your determination to get well. During your illness you positively impacted the life of every doctor, nurse, therapist and healthcare professional you met and we will never be the same. We all admired you so much and were so proud of you- you were the hardest working man we ever had the privilege of knowing. You were a man who fought hard but with quiet determination, someone who never gave up, even though the road was tough and full of uncertainties, someone who spoke volumes even though you didn’t utter many words, a man who was giving and kind even though your physical limitations were great, always gracious even when the pain had to be incredible, and always, always being a man of God. You never once let your illnesses define you. How sad I am that you aren’t walking an earthly path with us but I take great comfort in knowing that God has wrapped you in his loving arms and told you “Job well- done”. God is the potter and you were the clay…. It was a life well-lived.

  3. Juli and family, my deepest sympathies at this time. It was such an honor to take care of Ernie and to get to see and talk with Juli. Your dedication to your husband was beautiful and I know Ernie loved to see you and call you each day. He is deeply missed but I will remember all the great things about him. I can still picture him giving me the “thumbs up or thumbs down” each day. My thoughts will be with you tomorrow…..Rhonda Bealer
