He was a husband, a father, a son, a brother, an uncle, a surfer, a rocker, a warrior, a friend. He was a longtime Rumsonite and Rumson-Fair Haven Regional High School (RFH) graduate. He was Gregory S. Weber and he passed away on March 1 at his Long Branch home. He was 66.
Known to many as someone who loved and lived life to the fullest, Greg was born in Newark, NJ. A graduate of RFH and the University of Colorado, he traveled the world, but was always happiest at the Jersey Shore, family said in his obituary.
He and his wife Kelly raised their daughters in Rumson, where they lived for 22 years before moving to Long Branch. Greg was a talented guitar player, who enjoyed playing solo, with his friends and with his bands, The Deadly Snakes and The Jettyrats. He spent summers at the Sea Bright Beach Club, and surfed/paddled year-round, even after his cancer diagnosis.
Greg was predeceased by his father, Henry Weber.
He is survived by: his wife Kelly (Buttner) and their two daughters, Lauren and Emma Weber; his mother, LaVanche “Lee” Weber (Walker); two sisters, Jennifer Weber and Cynthia Weber-Cleary and her husband Denis. Greg also leaves behind a large extended family, friends, coworkers, neighbors, fellow surfers, bandmates, and fans who will miss him.
There will be no visitation. A memorial service will be held at 10 a.m. on Thursday, March 7, in his old neighborhood at St. George’s By the River Episcopal Church, 7 Lincoln Avenue, Rumson, with a small reception to follow at the church.
