Joseph James Weber

December 10, 1928 — November 29, 2022

Joseph James Weber (93) passed away peacefully on November 29, 2022 in Los Angeles, California with his wife and twin daughters by his side.


Joseph was born in Indianapolis, the only child of James and Virginia Weber. He graduated from Tech High School in Indianapolis. After graduation he was employed by Stark & Wetzel where he worked his way up from the mailroom to the position of Vice President and General Manager. After Stark & Wetzel was purchased by Rath Packing, Joseph purchased Superior Linen in Muncie, Indiana, which he owned and operated until 2008.


Joseph was blessed with a large and loving family. Joseph married his high school sweetheart, Mary Waddick, and together they raised 8 children. After the two divorced, Joseph married Cheryl Wood. During their 42 years together they raised twin daughters. Joseph will be remembered for his quick wit, contagious smile, adventurous spirit, and ambitious nature– he never met a stranger. He had a wonderful sense of humor and always had a way of maintaining his emotions even during the most difficult times. He loved to read and always had a love for cars. He enjoyed spending weekends by the water, being on his boat and good music. After retirement, Joseph and Cheryl moved from Greenwood, Indiana to Los Angeles, California to be closer to their twins.


Joseph was preceded in death by his parents, his former wife, Mary, daughter-in-law Mary and two loved and cherished grandchildren, Alec Curtis and Evan Weber. He is survived by his wife, Cheryl, his children Joseph (Anne), Kathleen Hatfield, Christine Sigler, James, Mary Beth Bryant (Dennis), Eileen Shumway (David), William (Sherry), Jeanine, Stacey and Casey; his eighteen grandchildren and twenty-four great grandchildren.
