June 20, 1994-Sept. 21, 2013


Austin James Weber, 19, of Ada, passed away surrounded by his loving family at 5:35 p.m. Saturday at Akron General Hospital, Akron, as a result of a longboarding accident.

He was born on June 20, 1994, in Lima, to Carl J. and Mary Lou (Illig) Weber, who survive in Ada.

Also surviving are two sisters, Kelsey Weber of Newport, Calif., and Holly Weber of Centerville; a brother, Alex Weber of Ada; maternal grandmother, Lucille Illig of Landeck; and paternal grandfather, Robert Weber of Delphos. Austin is part of a large and loving family including 15 aunts and uncles, 62 cousins and friends from his childhood home in Elida, the Ada and Lima communities and the University of Akron, too numerous to count.

He was preceded in death by his maternal grandfather, James A. Illig; paternal grandmother, Rita Weber; and a cousin, Matthew Lisboa.

Austin was a sophomore at the University of Akron. He was a 2012 graduate of Ada High School. He was an avid fan of the Cincinnati Reds and the Detroit Lions. Austin was a member of Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Church, Ada.

Austin was a remarkable young man full of life who never knew a stranger. He was an outgoing person and a friend to all. Austin brought so much joy to others and touched so many lives throughout his short life. Even in his death, he is giving the gift of life through organ and tissue donation so others may live on through him.

Mass of Christian Burial will begin at 11 a.m. Friday at the English Chapel on the campus of Ohio Northern University, Ada, with Father Dave Young officiating. Burial will be in St. Paul Cemetery, Ada.

Friends may call 2-8 p.m. on Thursday at Hanson-Neely Funeral Home, Ada, where a Parish Wake service will be held at 8 p.m.

Memorial contributions may be made to the American Red Cross, Ada Athletic Boosters or the charity of the donor’s choice.
