Obituary of John M. Weibel
John Weibel, “Jack” to everyone who knew him, was a caring man who was considerate of his family and genuinely loved life! A good provider and very kindhearted, he could also be a strong, assertive dad and grandpa when needed. Jack and his wife Patricia were very devout Catholics attending St. John Paul II Church weekly and instilling those core values in their children. Jack always strived to see his family happy and times together were memorable. Although not a fan of Disney World in Florida he went with his children and then several more times with his grandchildren as they were also big fans! His joy was in seeing how happy it made them experience “the happiest place on earth”. He even got a picture of himself with Chip and Dale to the glee of the youngsters and made him feel like a kid all over again! Jack was a very talented Graphic Artist and multiple award-winning amateur photographer as well. Working with the Buffalo News for 45 years, Jack worked on layouts, maps, graphic designs, and could create and draw anything when asked. Jack worked hard but also found time for relaxation. He was an avid Bills and Sabre’s fan following his home team’s progress even to his last days with us. When last week’s game was on, as he was in the hospital, he texted Patricia during the whole game about each play that was going on. Jack loved to travel and taking cruises with Patricia was their favorite way to holiday! Jack had a passion for the water and anything nautical! Owning several boats over the years and he was an enthusiastic boater and active with the Antique Boat Society, a classic boating organization. And nothing would cap the day off better than enjoying a nice Maker’s Mark on the rocks. Jack was a special man, who knew what he enjoyed and made the most of living. He will be missed dearly by family and friends, for just being himself and his love for those around him. Weibel, John M. “Jack” October 24, 2020 of Derby, NY.
