Kenneth Eugene “Kenny” Weber, 94, of New Philadelphia passed away peacefully at Community Hospice Truman House on December 27, 2017 following a brief period of declining health.

Born in Strasburg on January 20, 1923, he was the son of the late Ralph E. and Della Marian (Johnson) Weber. After graduating from high school, Kenny served his country in the United States Army during World War II. He was a member of the 11th Airborne and was very proud to be a part of the Los Banjos Raid that liberated more than 2300 American citizens from prisoner of war camps.

Kenny spent his professional career as a corporate pilot working for Weatherhead, Marlite, Ridge Tool, and McKinley Air Transport. His free time was also spent in the air flying his personal plane. He was proud to be the oldest pilot in Tuscarawas County, still having his license at 92 years of age
He was a member of both the A.O.P.A. and the E.A.A. Chapter 1077. He was also an avid Ohio State Buckeyes fan.

In addition to his parents, he was preceded in passing by his wife, the former June E. Edwards in 2000; his infant sister, Donna Jean; his brother, Jack Weber; and his beloved cousin, Helen Haney.

Dear Cheryl and Sally and your families, Your Dad and Mom, like the two of you, were special neighbors to us even after we grew up and moved. Your Dad and Mom were very kind and caring people. Your father was a great morale booster to a new teenage driver you may remember. :) So sorry for your loss but please know we join you in the celebration of your father's life and know that he is with your Mom. There are so many good memories of those days on Front Street. Our thoughts and prayers are with you, Darla (Johnson) Sebenik and family.
