He was born April 27, 1931, to Gerald and Margaret (Keller) Weber in Wonewoc, WI. His family moved to the home farm on Dach Ridge in Viroqua when he was 1 ½ yrs old. He was united in marriage to Carol Mosser on May 24, 1952. Don’s life will be remembered for his love for his family, his friendships, and hard work. Don’s passions in life were his cows, pigs, farming, and spending time with family and friends.

In his free time he enjoyed playing Euchre, hunting, fishing, and going to the Eagle’s Club. His greatest tribute was the respect he gave and received from all that knew him. He is survived by his wife of 60 years, Carol; his children: Danny (Tammy Burke) Weber of Viroqua, Diane Young of Eagle, CO, Scott (Cindy) Weber of Viroqua, Sandra (Gary Ostrem) Weber of Viroqua, and Karla (David) Novey of Byron, MN ; nine grandchildren: Lisa (Ben) Johnson, Tyler Fortney, Brooke Weber, Zachary Novey, Cole Weber, Justin Novey, Brock Weber, Brandon Novey, and William Young; two great-grandchildren: Alyson and Evan Johnson; two brothers: Robert (Joann) Weber of Sacramento, CA and Dale (Karen) Weber of West Salem, WI; and his ball playing buddy Maggie!

He was preceded in death by his parents and son-in-law Cliff Young.

We were blessed and fortunate to have such a wonderful husband, father, and grandfather in our lives.

He will be greatly missed by all that knew him.
