Edward was born September 28, 1934 in St. Anthony, ND to Joseph A. and Regina (Leingang) Weber. He was raised in Mandan and graduated from Mandan High School in 1954. On May 4, 1957, he married the love of his life, Deloris A. Bunker in Bismarck.
Edward worked at several service stations before owning and operating Ed’s Standard Station for nine years. He was also a delivery driver for Cloverdale Foods and Cass Clay. He worked as a laborer with ICI at several local power plants until his retirement in September 1996. Edward was a lifetime member of the Elks Club and enjoyed participating in community events. He had many hobbies, including camping, fishing, and model ship building, but his favorite hobby was woodworking. He used his talent to make beautiful pieces of furniture for himself and his family. He loved reading Louis L’ Amour books and collected them as well as movies. Ed enjoyed playing cards and traveling with his wife to visit family and friends all around the country. Ed and Deloris especially enjoyed the winters they spent in Las Vegas. He was a loving and jovial husband, father, grandfather, and great-grandfather. He always had a smile and a hug whenever he greeted someone. His laugh was infectious, and he always had a good joke to share.
Ed is survived by his beloved wife of 63 years, Deloris A. Weber; his four sons, Rod (Geri) of Durango, CO, Ken (Lorraine) of Bismarck, Greg (Mel) of Motley, MN and Paul (Patty) of Eagan, MN; brother, Clement Weber of Bismarck; nine grandchildren, Shannon (Andrew) Brackett, Justin Weber, Ryan Weber, Lucas Weber, Lindsay (Andrew) Krebs, Brandon (Colleen) Weber, Nikki (Brandon) Judge, Tim Weber, and Sarah Weber; and seven great-grandchildren, Dean and Keira Brackett, Logan, Liam, and Levi Krebs, and Jaxson and Ariella Weber.
