David Thomas Weber, Sr.

David Thomas Weber, Sr.

Dave was the oldest of eight children and always held his famly close to his heart and especially enjoyed these last months living with his three youngest grandchildren. Dave was also there for his community. He was a firefighter for the Woolwich Fire Department for many years, one of the first EMT’s in the County, one of the first EMT instructors in the county, a life member of the New Jersey Fire Assoc. and a founding member of the Logan Twp. Ambulance Assoc. In 2017, Dave was recognized by Logan Twp Parks and Rec for over 13 years of service to this committee and Board. He retired from the Heavy Equipment Operators Union (IUOE Local 825), was a Teamster in his early years, was proud to own and operate Luke’s Hauling and most winters found him snow plowing. His EMT skills came in handy as the infield supervisor at Bridgeport Raceway from the days of its inception and saved more than one life during his racetrack days. His life was centered around family, including his family’s annual crab fest that brought friends and family alike together at his mother’s home for some food and fun. He loved the outdoors, hunting, snow-mobiling and four wheeling especially up in Maine. Dave had a soft spot for his pets that included numerous dogs named Max and even a cat over the years. And, most of the time, when he was indoors he had his eyes on the outside checking out the birds and the squirrels. Mondays, Wednesdays and Friday were for Bobby popping over for a breakfast sandwich and Wawa coffee. Dave was always up for some cards, pokeno and a slew of other games that started with palying pinochle with his parents and later with Judy and Bob.
He was blessed to meet Rita at the racetrack many years ago and enjoyed 38 years of marriage together. He is survived by his children, Michele (Wayne) Davis, Jan (Matthew) Weisman and David (Gina); 7 grandchildren, Martina, Jaade, Mason, Gavin, Avery, Abigail, Luke, Owen and Mia; and his siblings, Anne (Michael) Madara, Carolyn Ravelli, Stephen (Janice), Joseph (Mario), Therese Haaf, Melissa and Kathleen. He was pre-deceased by his parents, Thomas and Mary (Gerlack) Weber.
