Richard “Dick” Weber
Handyman Extraordinaire

Richard “Dick” Weber, 83, of St. Paul, passed away peacefully on Thursday, June 25, 2020.

Preceded in death by parents, Art and Lucy Weber; and brothers, Art and Don Weber.

Survived by children, Linda (Joe) Haag, Ray (Brenda) Webber, Laura (Michael) Morosok, and Mike (Tara) Weber; grandchildren, Emily (Peter) Czech, Rebecca Weber, Lauren (Kayla) Eichenfels, Angela Haag, Adam Morosk, Eric Weber, and Daniel Morosok; great grandchild, James Czech; siblings, Jim (Muriel) Weber, John (Joni) Weber, Marlene Weber, Bob (Chick) Weber, and Tom (Phyllis) Weber; and many other extended family members and friends.

Dick had many lifelong faithful friends as well as family and neighbors who will miss him. Always ready to step in and help someone fix anything. He was known by his neighbors as the guy who would “just fix things”. If they needed a repair, he was there to help.

He had a breakfast club for years with his childhood friends. And until recently got together with his siblings once a month for breakfast.

Dick was an avid fisherman and archery hunter for many years and his tinkering even impacted these hobbies. He hand-built components for his bow, made portable stands and hand-built leather slings to hold his bow (which are still in use today). He liked to be outdoors and spend time on the lake with friends. He loved to bike and walk. His favorite walk around Como Lake usually included a collection of several bags of garbage from around the lake.

Even as Alzheimer’s took away his skills, he continued to try to “fix” things, sometimes to the dismay of his brother John (his best friend). What once took them an hour to complete, would take a day. The last year of his life was very challenging. He really missed being in his home and having his tools. His children did get to spend time with him and he enjoyed that very much.

We are sure he has a new set of tools now and he is probably already “fixing” things!

A celebration of Dick’s life will be held at a later date when it is safe to do so.

Love you Dad!
