Later he opened Weber's Appliance Center in Zionsville, Indiana and Linden, Indiana. He was a member of the Moose Lodge and a State Auditor for the Moose. In later years, he moved to Rockville, Indiana and opened the Weber's Family Restaurant.
He was loved by many people. He was called dad or grandpa by many of the people who worked for him because he treated them like family. He loved to fish and go camping. He liked to play Euchre and watch sports and tried to go to as many of his children's, grandchildren's and great grandchildren's sporting events as he could. He left a legacy of the importance of family and the love a family shares. The words that describe Dick Weber the most are "Love of Family."
