Harold was born on May 29, 1924 in Wisconsin Dells, Wisconsin, the son of Roy and Sadie (Strief) Weber. He attended high school in Wisconsin Dells and was a part of the State Champion Basketball Team in his junior year. He was granted an early diploma in his senior year to allow him to enlist in the United States Marine Corps.
He served in the Marine Corps during WW II in the Pacific Theater, “Island Hopping” during many hard-fought battles. He returned home, and on December 14, 1948 he married Jocille Honerbaum in Lancaster. He owned and operated DISCO Building Improvement Co. for many years until his retirement.
Harold was a real people person. He loved to visit, and that quality made him a great salesperson. In his later years he enjoyed getting out for rides, and even made the trip to Washington DC with the Honor Flight program.
He is survived by his three children Sandra Gavin, Cindy Stecher and Randy Weber all of Dubuque; eight grandchildren, eleven great grandchildren and one great great grandchild; his sister Dorothy (Bob) Wick of Wisconsin Dells, and nieces & nephews.
He was preceded in death by his wife, parents and eight siblings.
In lieu of flowers a Harold Weber memorial fund will be established.
