Leonard "Len" Weber

4/28/2017



Leonard “Len” Weber age 84 of Oak Ridge, NJ, passed on Friday, April 28, 2017.

He was born to Ralph and Lillian Weber in the Bronx, New York and raised at number 1550 Nelson Avenue in the Bronx. Len graduated from the Samuel Gompers Vocational High School in the Bronx with the Class of 1950.

Just out of high school Len worked by his father’s side at A1 Venetian Blind & Awning Company on Arthur Avenue in the Bronx. He took a job at the Paradise Theatre in the Bronx and found a lifelong career in theatre and broadcasting. He worked with the Theatrical Stage Employees, Local One - IATSE having had positions in New York City with CBS, NBC, and ABC television, and for Channel 13. For many years he was the Head Electrician for the St James Theatre on Broadway in New York and retired, after over sixty years in broadcasting and theatre, in 1994.

Len will be remembered as a loyal friend and gifted individual. He was a caring father, brother, and animal lover. Many fond family memories were made with annual, week long trips to Wildwood Crest at the Jersey Shore. Len truly enjoyed his retirement years and the time it gave him to be with his grandchildren and great-grandchildren. He truly loved spending time with them all.

Len met a pretty girl in fifth grade, at PS 104 in the Bronx, name Evelyn Morris. Evelyn remembers their first date as being to a candy store that also served as the local hangout for kids. As the years went by they became high school sweethearts and fell in love. Len proposed to Evelyn soon after her sister Joanie was married. They married on December 30, 1951 at the Tremont Temple on the Grand Concourse in the Bronx. They honeymooned at the Madison Hotel in Atlantic City. They enjoyed a devoted marriage of sixty-five years together.

He was the loving husband of Evelyn Weber; devoted father of Steven Weber and his wife Suzann of Houston, TX, Laurie Kelly of Pompton Plains, Michael Weber and his wife Carol of Newfoundland, and Lynnette Verhoest and her husband Richard of Kinnelon. He was the cherished grandfather of eight grandchildren and four great-grandchildren, with one additional great-grandchild on the way. Len was predeceased by his two sisters Roslyn Harris and Esther Vega.

Friends may visit with the family from 4-8 PM on Monday, May 1, 2017 at the funeral home. A 7 PM funeral service will be held during the visitation hours on Monday.

Funeral services will also be held on Tuesday, May 2, 2017 at 10 AM at the funeral home, followed by burial at the Laurel Grove Memorial Park Cemetery, Totowa.

Lenny and Evelyn had the most eventful parties started early and ended late!! Len helped out the men in our family with great jobs, in particular my Dad, Walter which gave them another way to respect each other`s work ethics, and the opportunity for Walter to create a special bond with Len`s son Michael (one of my all time faves)No matter what occasion Lenny always, always, always, greeted with me the same way in a deep voice sayin` ~hey Baby~with a big smile and that is exactly how I will remember him as I smile to myself with tears,,Love all you Webers , Eileen Bacino
