On Friday, December 8, 2017, Wayne Weber, age 75, died at home surrounded by his family. Wayne was born in St. Cloud, MN, to Mary Ida (Thelen) and James Martin Weber. He was the youngest of six children. He earned a sociology degree from St. Martin's University in Olympia, WA. This is where he met Nicole (Trunnell) Weber of Colville, WA, his spouse of 53 years. After 26 years, he retired from the US Federal Penitentiary where he was employed as a Unit Manager. Wayne and Nicki reside in Cary, NC.

Wayne was a kind and devoted husband and father. He was a quiet man who enjoyed nature, especially bird watching. He had a wicked sense of humor and was loved by all who knew him. He wore silly hats and played with ridiculous, noisy toys.

Wayne is survived by his loving wife, Nicole; children, Ellen (Steven) Herdler, Anne Weber, and Max Weber; granddaughters, Lea Herdler and Therese (Aaron) Osner; brother, Jerry Weber, the best man at his wedding.

He is preceded in death by his daughter, Rebecca; his parents; his siblings, Mary Lou (Don) Kemper, Linus, Norman, and Jim Weber.

A Mass of Christian Burial will be held on January 6, 2018 at 1 pm at St. Michael's Catholic Church in Cary, NC. In lieu of flowers, please consider donations to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital at
