Louis “Louie” Robert William Weber, 16, of Farley, son of Barb and Ron Weber, went home to be with his angels Saturday, Dec. 29, 2018 following complications from surgery at the Missouri State University Hospital in Columbia, Missouri.
Friends and relatives of Louis called from 2-8 p.m., Friday, Jan. 4, 2019 at Reiff Funeral Home in Farley, where a wake service was held at 1:30 p.m. Friends also called after 9 a.m., Saturday, Jan. 5 at the funeral home.
Services for Louis were held at 10:30 a.m., Saturday, Jan. 5, 2019 at St. John Catholic Church in Placid, with the Rev. Michael Schueller presiding. Lectors were Amanda Flessner and Jill Lantermans. Eucharistic Ministers were Mike Feldmann and Rosie Feldmann. Placing of the pall was done by Amanda Flessner, Theresa Weber, Jenny Koos, Abigail Gibson, Katie Weber, Mike Weber, Ben Weber, Anna Weber and Becca Weber. Giftbearers were Michael Feldmann and D.J. Offermann. Burial was held in St. John Cemetery in Placid.
He was born Sept. 18, 2002 in Iowa City, completing the Weber tribe. Louis could generally be found in the kitchen where he was a food enthusiast, cook, creator of new taste and a friend to talk to. He was 4ft and ¼ inches tall, engineer, geologist, techie, philosopher and astronomer all rolled into one. His room is a museum of his collections, geodes, rocks, Legos, dream catchers, space and anything science and much more.
Louis was blessed with an amazingly beautiful heart, an adaptive spiritual soul and devoted selfless personality. He adored all of his nieces and nephews. However, Louis was a hero to so many. He fought his whole life trying to keep up and not be left behind. Louis always was there for a hug or two or three. Louis was and will always be a WD BOBCAT. He loved belonging and being with his classmates and friends. Louis was always thinking and planning his next move. He was a smart cookie with a knack to make you smile. Louis found his way into every heart that knew him and every set of eyes that was blessed to see his smile.
He was a member of St. John Parish in Placid.
Those left to cherish his memories are his biggest fans, his superheros (his parents), Ron and Barb Weber of Farley; his babies, Joey and Winston (Puppies); nine siblings, Amanda (Ben) Flessner, of Cedar Falls, Theresa Weber, of Farley, Jenny Koos, of Peosta, Abigail (Kyle) Gibson, of Florida, Katie Weber (Jonna Berry), of Ankeny, Mike Weber, Ben Weber both of Dubuque, Anna Weber, of Farley and Becca Weber (Josh Wanzek) of Dyersville; his Minions in crime (nieces and nephews), Hannah, Samantha, Sarah, Naomi and Lillian Flessner, Maximus and Armina Jones, Jayeden and Justin Koos, and Jossalyn and Kamden Gibson; his prayer warrior maternal grandfather, Arthur Feldmann, of Hopkinton; paternal grandparents, Emil and Darlene Weber of Epworth; many faithful aunts and uncles; and many, many cousins and friends.
