David N. Weesner, 71 passed away on Wednesday, November 17, 2021. Dave was born November 29, 1949, to MSgt Howard and Ruth (Taylor) Weesner in Newburgh, New York. Growing up in a military family, Dave moved around the country before settling in Colorado Springs, Colorado. He graduated from Widefield High school and received an architectural degree from University of Colorado in 1972. Dave had a highly successful career as an architect and his work can be seen throughout the state.

Dave was married to Karen Weesner (Sielken) on July 27, 1974. He was a man of God, a loving husband, and a great father and grandfather. He was an active member of First Lutheran Church where he sang in the choir and played in several musicals. He was a member of the Pikes Peak Area Theatre Organ Society (PPATOS) and was instrumental in the Sack Lunch Serenade programs held at the City Auditorium. He was fond of the "Mighty Wurlitzer," but he loved playing programs and silent movies on his own personal theater organ, one of the largest in the state, now housed in the gymnasium at Immanuel Lutheran Church.

He was preceded in death by his parents and his brother Robert Weesner. He is survived by his wife of 47 years Karen; his brother Phil and his wife Lori Weesner of Phoenix, Arizona; son Matthew and his wife Ashley Weesner of Kearney, Nebraska; and grandchildren Rylan and Ellie Weesner. He will be dearly missed by all he touched as he lived his life for the Lord.

Burial services will be held at Evergreen Cemetery at 10:00 am on Wednesday with a Celebration of Life Service at 11:30 am at First Lutheran Church.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to First Lutheran Church in Colorado Springs, Colorado.

I have worked with Dave for over 20 years. It is not the projects that I will remember, but the fun, deep, and inspiring conversations I had with him. He was a warm and genuine person who will be missed by all.
