Parents

Family: Arletta I Gossen (b. June 15, 1923, d. September 8, 1996)

Biography

  • Birth: Erwin J Weber was born on September 2, 1923 in Town of Grand Chute, Outagamie Co, Wisconsin.
  • Marriage: He and Arletta I Gossen were married on April 11, 1945.
  • Death: Erwin J Weber died on September 11, 2014, at age 91, in Town of Grand Chute, Outagamie Co, Wisconsin.
  • Burial: He was buried in Highland Memorial Park, Appleton, Outagamie Co, Wisconsin.
  • Note: Erwin J. Weber

    Known as Erv or Hardware Hanke to many, Erwin J. Weber, age 91, died peacefully on Thursday morning, September 11, 2014, at Brewster Village, after a three-year battle with Lewy Body Dementia. He tried to be as independent and proud as possible. His strength and stubbornness was amazing. Erv was born September 2, 1923 in Grand Chute, son of the late John and Caroline (Blatz) Weber, and was united in marriage to Arletta Gossen on April 11, 1945. They celebrated fifty years of marriage before she passed in 1996.

    Erv was a lifelong resident of Grand Chute. His family farm was where the Westhill Development is now located. The 80-acre farm that Erv and Arletta owned (adjacent to the Fox River Mall) was purchased in 1946.

    Although farming was his passion, a second income was needed to provide for his family. Galloway Company / Dennis Long Trucking provided that income for twenty-five years. In 1968 his farm was sold for commercial property, and Erv "retired" at the age of 47. Retirement did not fit his work ethic, so several jobs followed: Allis Chalmers Factory, Valley Packaging, Lester Gauthier, Carew Concrete, and his final position of being the caregiver for Arletta until she died. The neighbors, friends, and family kept him busy with mowing lawns, fixing anything, housesitting, borrowing tools, and the like. He was affectionately known as "Hardware Hank". His workshop tool collection compared to the inventory at any local hardware store. He was raised during the Great Depression, and never threw anything away.

    Erv is survived by three children: Ronnie (Pauline) Weber of Appleton; Gene Weber of Kimberly; and Susan Weber of Neenah. His loving grandchildren are: Paul Weber, Kevin (Nancy) Weber, Melissa Abraham, Jamie Weber, Brittany Bourassa, and Lindsey Sheehy. He also loved his great-grandchildren: Travis Weber, Amanda Weber, Haley Weber, Connor Weber, and Dylan Abraham; and a great-great-grandson: Kayden Wilmot. He is further survived by a brother: Joseph Weber; his sisters: Thelma Ryba of and Irene Liebhauser; a brother-in-law: Harold Eichstadt; as well as many nieces and nephews.

    Erv was preceded in death by his parents, his wife Arletta, brothers Norbert (Josephine) Weber, Raymond (Edna) Weber, Gregor (Angie) Weber, John (Audrey) Weber, Jr., and Edward Weber; sisters: Sr. Marylene SSND, and Sally Eichstadt; two brothers-in-law: Orville Ryba and Ken Liebhauser; a brother and two sisters who died as infants, and several nieces and nephews.

    The funeral liturgy for Erv will be held on Monday, September 22, 2014 at 10:30 AM at ST. JOSEPH CATHOLIC CHURCH, 410 W. Lawrence Street in Appleton. Fr. Jim Leary will officiate. Interment will follow at Highland Memorial Park. Family and friends are invited to gather at the church on Monday morning from 8:30 AM until the time of the service.
