Tribute & Message From The Family

Randy Duane Weber, age 65, of Wells, MN, died Saturday, March 23, 2019 at Methodist Hospital in Rochester, MN, surrounded by his family after a short but intense battle with pancreatic cancer. A celebration of life will be held Saturday, March 30, 2019 from 3:00-7:00 PM at Bruss-Heitner Funeral Home in Wells, MN, with a prayer service at the end of visitation with Deacon Gene Paul. Randy's wishes were for you to come in and visit, tell tall tales and be together at the funeral home for visitation with Dawn and his family, and please....dress casual.

Randy was born March 21, 1954, in Wells, MN, the son of Gene and Dolores (Schroeder) Weber. Randy graduated from Wells Easton High School. Randy married Dawn Tews, January 25, 2019 in Blue Earth, MN. He was an employee and owner of Weber Construction for 50+ years. Randy enjoyed deer hunting, guns of any size and shape...legal or illegal, building, tinkering and fixing darn near anything! He liked going to wineries & breweries, smoking meats, cheeses and anything else he could fit into the smoker. He loved a good cup of coffee and lengthy conversations with whomever he crossed paths with. Most of those conversations started with his boisterous warm greeting..."Hey Lucky!" and after all was said and done, would be wrapped up with a huge smile and "Talk at me later!"

Randy is preceded in death by his parents: Gene and Dolores Weber; sister-in-law: Twyla Roiger; Brother-in-law: Nathan Tews; Dawn's parents: Lowell and Marlyce Tews.

He is survived by his loving wife and forever companion for 33 years, Dawn Weber of Wells; four legged furry friend, Sugar; older sister: Karen (husband Dennis) Rebelein; younger sister: Denise (husband Paul) Bach; Dawn's siblings: Faith (Richard) Johnson, Lamond (Cindy) Tews, Carmen Williams; Craig Tews and Jon (Trish) Tews; along with many nieces and nephews.


Condolence & Memory Journal

To the Webber family, our deepest sympathy. Randy and I were friends in high school, and even became closer when I worked for CATCO Parts & Service in Mankato. Our fathers and mothers were close growing up as my father worked for Gene. He was a special, in his way he treated other people, always smiling and complimenting the other person, his laugh was unique. Our prayers will be with you and your family. God Bless!! - Tim & Mercy Chirpich

My deepest sympathy to Dawn, and to Randy's family and to Dawn's family. Randy's parents and my parents were close friends since both of our father's got out of the military after WW2. We always got a laugh from the fishing stories, hunting stories, or just a day in the life story. This story telling ability must have been genetically passed from Gene to Randy, because you'd be smiling before he began to talk. Late 2014, my mother's septic system had to be changed to the above ground code and Randy was doing the excavation. First he had to remove 26 tree stumps resulting from the storm the year before.My mother, (Dorothy Christenson) , Dawn, and I watched. Randy had the stumps & roots out in 35 minutes! Then mom noticed the back entrance steps had pulled away from the house about 4 inches. Randy said, " I can fix that," He slowly guided the backhoe to push both sides back towards the house. There was one small gap on one side, so Dawn yelled to Randy, " Move it back just a smidgen on the right side..." As we laughed, Randy moved the step precisely in place. Only Randy Weber could gage and carry out the term "smidgen" ! He is a one-of-a-kind, and we'll miss him. Randy & Dawn, two peas in a pod. Hopefully, the stories and warm memories will be of some comfort during these difficult times now, and in the months and years to come. May God bless.

Dawn, Larry and I are so sorry for your loss! I can't imagine the empty space Randy's passing has left in your heart and soul. We pray that God can heal your pain and bring you inner peace. Larry has told me many stories about Randy, about the times they have worked together, and that he will miss his smiling face, and yes, even in tough situations he always seemed to have a smile on his face.Our thoughts and prayers are with you in in this sorrowful time. Remember the fun and excitement the two of you shared, those memories will be with you forever.

My condolences to the entire family. Times such as this are never easy, but can be helped by thinking of all the great memories you've shared together. Although I didn't personally know Randy, I am friends with Chandler, who thought the world of him. Hearing excerpts from their hunting exploits always brought a smile to my face. Kudos to Chandler for assisting the family over the past few months during this difficult time. May he rest in peace. With regards, Mark

So sorry for your loss, our thoughts and prayers to all the family. Randy parents and my parents were friends and my dad did a lot of Gene's mechanical work on his equipment. Great loss will miss my long talks with Randy in the trailer with him when I visit Wells.
