Robert Alan “Bob” Weber, age 54, of Spring Valley, Calif., died Dec. 7, 2012, of an apparent sudden heart attack.

Born May 13, 1958, in Colorado Springs, Co. Bob spent his early life living in Pacifica, Calif., loving the waves, and the water. 

The son of Carol and Walter Weber, he was one of three children. Bob married Trish Mohr, of Clearlake on Nov. 28, 2012. 

Educated in Pacifica, Bob was an AAU class swimmer while in school. He enjoyed hanging around the piers, catching fish and likewise the occasional wave. As a youth he played the trumpet and harmonica and demonstrated a gift for drawing wild life. 

Bob had many talents, one of which was cooking at “Tait’s at the Wharf” on Pier 45 in San Francisco.  He worked at several jobs during his life and for over 25 years, and became known for his craft at house painting.

Spending his life in Northern California, he came to settle in Spring Valley, where he cared for his mother, Carol. 

He was very active at the Spring Valley Community Center where he could often be found lending a hand. 

He was very active and faithful in his church and a staunch supporter of 12-step recovery programs, to  which he volunteered his time and energy to meet their needs. 

Always a delight, he had a smile for everyone he met. In fact, Bob became known for his infectious smile enjoyed by family and friends alike. 

He loved to make folks laugh. He had a wry sense of humor and enjoyed the occasional joke and singing in church. His baritone voice was a complement to any church choir.

Bob is survived by his wife, Trish, of Clearlake; his mother, Carol Weber of Spring Valley; and father, Walter Weber of Oceana, Calif.

He was preceded in death by his sister, Catherine, and brother, Walt.

Phillip Wilson
May 10, 1934-Jan. 19, 2013

When Phil left this earth, the world lost a good man, a hard working, fun loving get-up-and-go person, a man who loved to tell his stories and to hear yours. He loved to travel and was always planning his next trip.

He was a terrific father and friend, and a wonderful, kind husband. He would wake up singing, eager to meet the day.
 
In high school he began working as a drapery installer's assistant and later had his own window covering business in Southern California for many years.

After he retired he moved to Kelseyville and built the house he now owns. He was a faithful friend of Bill W. for 30 years.
 
Survivors include his wife, Vivian; daughter, Pam; son, Ron (Barbara); and step-children, Scott (Shawn) and Kirstie (Nance); grandchildren, Alex, Shane and Claire; sister, Linda (Lee); nephews and nieces; a friendly ex-wife, Patti; and many friends.  

A memorial gathering of family and friends in planned for later in the year.

In lieu of flowers, donations to Hospice are encouraged.
 
He is deeply loved and will remain forever in our hearts.
