Steven Weber had a fantastic sense of humor and could find something to laugh about in every situation he faced, said his wife, Dr. Deni Weber.
Despite all his health troubles, including cancer, Parkinson‘s and heart surgery, he never lost his sense of humor.
“He always had quick come-backs that were just hysterical,” she said. “His ability to remain optimistic was inspiring.”
Steven Weber, 63, of Valparaiso, died April 24. He had been a technical electrician with Weil-McLain in Michigan City. He was a member of Liberty Bible Church, Chesterton. He had a variety of hobbies and interests, from playing the saxophone to being part of the Porter County Amateur Radio Club.
“He always had a curiosity about electronics and loved to talk to people on his radio from all over the world,” she said. “He’d come upstairs and tell me he’d just talked to someone in Colombia.”
With his wide range of interests, he would joke he missed his true calling.
“He would say he should’ve been a mad scientist as his chosen profession,” she said.
Weber was passionate about music and loved learning about music and musicians.
He believed family was extraordinarily important, and he had strong Christian, middle-class morals, his wife said.
Even as his health declined, he remained optimistic and upbeat. He inspired his friends, family and the hospital staff, she said.
“He was always confident. He never complained,” she said. “His faith got him through. He gave it over to God. He knew he and his family would be OK, no matter which way it went.”
