Lester Roy Weber went to be with his heavenly father, Tuesday, 8th of August, 2017. His life began in Okeene, Oklahoma on 27th of September, 1935, the youngest of 12 children born to Henry and Eva Weber. Lester attended his early school years at the Homestead School, and then transferred to the Okeene Schools. He spent many hours working the family farm to help his mother. Lester was not afraid of hard work, was a loving husband and father, and had a strong faith in God.
He married the love of his life, Andina (Ann) Mayrie Eberhardt in the Church of God in Okeene, Oklahoma, 4th of April, 1954. They were blessed with four children, Lonnie Gene, Terry Lynn, Sandra(Sandy) Kay, and Ronald (Ron) Roy. Their life began in Enid, Oklahoma and currently in Fairview, Oklahoma.
Lester began a long, well-loved career as a John Deere Mechanic and Manager working for several different companies around the Fairview area, retiring with Jensen's in 2005. He continued working the Jensen family farm enjoying every moment behind the wheel of the John Deere tractor until his death. Lester also enjoyed his hobby of woodworking, building anything from headboards to dressers, many pieces his family will cherish.
Lester and Ann became motorcycle enthusiasts, riding with the group "Sooner Riders," where they met many treasured friends. They enjoyed travels to Wyoming, Colorado, Utah, Mississippi, Louisiana, and especially time in Branson, Missouri. They spent their 50th anniversary in Hawaii, and enjoyed going to Trinidad, West Indies. They also enjoyed their trips and a cruise with the John Deere Company through Jensen's.
He also cherished his time with his children, grandchildren, Will and Jonea' and the recently arrival of his great-granddaughter, Kate. When there was a family gathering, there was always homemade strawberry banana ice cream, his specialty. He would never miss an opportunity to enjoy his back patio with a cup of coffee or sitting on the swing with his wife, or having a quiet afternoon with his nap buddy, Fritzie. Lester was a quiet, humble, loving man of integrity, strength, warmth, and a beautiful spirit that will be missed dearly by his family and those he touched.
He is survived by his loving wife and best friend, Ann; his children, Terry (Bill) Hendricks of Fairview; Sandy Greene (Gordon Hopper) of Enid; Ron Weber of Carlsbad, NM; his grandchildren, Willie (Stephanie) Hendricks of Houston, TX; Jonea' Hendricks (Jason White) of Katy, TX; his great-granddaughter, Kate, and sister-in-law Debbie Lounsbury, as well as many nieces and nephews.
He was preceded in death by his parents; siblings, Hank, Victor, Jerry (Alec), George, Albert, Marie, Kate, Hilda, Eva, Molly, and Alma Ann; and his firstborn son, Lonnie Gene.
