Gregory Carl Weber
Greg Weber, who spent his life conquering space, made his final journey into the heavens on July 9, in the embrace of his daughters. He was 64.
Greg was born in Long Beach, CA in 1950 to the late Donald R. and Margaret Weber.
Greg received a degree in engineering from Florida Technological University and spent his 34-year career at Kennedy Space Center. He was proud to be part of the Space Shuttle program and was named a "KSC Shuttle Legend" in 2011. In his retirement, Greg gained immeasurable pleasure as a NASA "Subject Matter Expert" at the KSC Visitor's Complex.
Greg loved Gator football, muscle cars, Cary Grant, The Simpsons, playing guitar, and art deco. He was a master of sarcasm, an excellent writer, storyteller, and cook.
Greg is survived by two daughters, Rachel Weber of Dallas, and Darcie Cornwell of Fort Worth; son-in-law, Steve; grandsons, Spencer and Harrison; three sisters; three brothers; many cherished nieces and nephews, and their children.
Greg was preceded in death by his wife of 25 years, Gerri; brother, Steve; and furry children, Maggie, Benji, and Phoebe.
His family will privately celebrate his life. In lieu of flowers, please donate to pancreatic cancer research at www.curepc.org. We hope you will share tales of "conquering space" alongside him and read his full obituary at www.newcomertitusville.com.
