Art was born on the farm near Yellow Grass on May 10, 1928 the 6th and youngest child of Louis and Emily Weber.  He started his farming career when he bought land with his father in the RM of Griffin in 1945.  He lived his life as a farmer taking great pride in all that he did.  Art was very mechanically inclined.  He held a US patent for one of his inventions.  When others were in need he was always ready to support them with whatever was required.

After retiring from his first career of farming, Art focused on his secondary career of coffee row, visiting his friends every day whether in the coffee shop or in the nursing homes.  He was blessed with a quick wit and a mischievous spirit.  He enjoyed all that life had to offer.  He was able to relate to people from all backgrounds.  Art loved music and enjoyed entertaining others whether with a piano, guitar, mouth organ or song.  He always had time for his wife, his children and their spouses, his grandchildren and his numerous nieces and nephews.  

A service of remembrance for Art was held on Wednesday, December 12, 2012, at 2:00 p.m. from Grace United Church, Weyburn, SK  with Rev. M. Barnabas, officiating. Interment followed at Green Acres Cemetery, Weyburn, SK. Honorary pallbearers were “friends from coffee row and all in attendance”. Pallbearers were Harvey Anderson, Shane Dammann, Ron Endicott, Jim Halbert, Barry MacTaggart, and Blaine Tokarz.

It is with fond memories that I remember from my childhood the good times Uncle Art and Aunt Mimmie (my mother's dearest sister) provided to me when they took me to stay with them over two summers at their farm near Griffin. My Uncle Dallas was there too as he was older and could help on the farm. Art was truly somebody I looked up to. He had jet black hair combed straight back, and at Christmas time, when all the families gathered at Grandma and Grandpa Jessie's in Frobisher, he dressed in a suite and looked every bit a leading actor from Hollywood. He had a deep baratone voice just like the super stars of the time. The last time I had a chance to visit with him was at 'coffee row' in Weyburn and am fortunate to have done so and to have met Vivian at their house. Good bye Art - may you rest in peace.

Our deepest sympathies go out to Vivian and family.....we too remember Uncle Art for his wit and making one feel invited to be around him. A very compassionate man who seen good in everyone. My earliest memory of Uncle Art is him cracking me a coke when he and Aunt Mim had just moved in to the new farm home, i was only a child yet i remember his kindness. May you find peace at this time in your memories of Art.

My deepest condolences in your loss of Art. He was such a great guy. He was my customer when I worked in the bank and we had many good visits. When I started working at WIT he became my customer. He was the kind of man that you could adopt as a Grandpa any time. He will be really missed by all who knew & loved him.
