Ken began his journey in Xenia, Ohio on March 28, 1960, born to Ernest and Phyllis [Dicus] Weber. Ken lived in Ohio all of his life with the exception of wintering in Florida with his wife, Sue, and rescue dogs. He graduated from Wayne High School in 1979 and began working as a carpenter with Jess Robbins before forming his own construction company (Weber Construction).
He met his wife (Carolyn Sue Caldwell) at the home where he was constructing a new fence for another rescued animal. They were married on March 20, 1993. Ken was an avid bass fisherman and won numerous fishing tournaments and championships during his amazing lifetime. Ken and Sue enjoyed ocean cruises and sailed from Alaska to the Panama Canal, Montreal to Tampa and everywhere in between. Ken was the type of person that excelled at everything he did, much to the anguish of many competitors, whether in bass fishing or playing pool or building a house. He will truly be missed.
Ken is preceded in death by his father, Ernest Weber; survived by his wife of 29 years, Carolyn Sue Weber; his mother, Phyllis Weber, Brother: Mark (Susan) Weber; Sister: Marianne Weber, Brother-in-Law: James (Roxanne) Welch; Sister-in-law Kathleen (Terry) Ziesmer; Nephews: Adam (Ashley) Weber, Benjamin (Amanda) Weber, Curtis (Sydney) Welch, Scott (Jennifer) Ziesmer: Great Nephews: Jackson Douglas Weber, Samuel Wyse, Garrett Kelly, Jacob and Parker Beck; Nieces: Christine (Jeff) Neltner, Carolyn (Mark) Wyse, Courtney (Jared) Thomas, Corrinne (Jon) Millsap, Amanda (Mike) Beck; Great Nieces: Anne Marie Wyse, Izabella Lanza, Kinslee Beck, Sophia and Isabella Ziesmer and his beloved rescue dogs, Runner, Kona and Porkchop the cat and other extended family members and friends.
