Francis Webber

With broken hearts, we announce the peaceful passing of Francis Eugene Webber following a short but courageous battle with cancer, two days before his 58th birthday.

Predeceased by his father John Webber, father-in-law Edward Meade, sister-in-law Sharon Webber and brother-in-law Chris Poffenroth.

Leaving to mourn his loss while also celebrating his life are his loving wife of 22 years Mary Lou (Meade), the pride and joy of his life sons John and Matthew; his mother Madonna, his brothers: John (Lily), Jim (Dawn), Joe (Cindy), and Stephen (Amanda); and his sisters: Diane (Brian), Cynthia (Fabian), Glenda (Leo), Sheila (Gordie), and Kelly (Chris).

Also mourning his loss are his Meade family including his mother-in-law Philomena, his brothers-in-law: Ned (Darlene), Wayne (Margie), and Robbie (Daisy); and sisters-in-law: Shelia (Rick), and Wanda (Dave).

Francis will be fondly remembered and sadly missed by his 17 nieces and nephews, the Placentia softball community and a large circle of family and friends including lifetime best friend Bo Power.

Francis was loved by all who knew him. He found happiness in coaching the boys and watching them play softball and hockey, taking trips around the bay, entertaining family and friends and hanging out in the shed.

A special thank you to the staff of the Placentia Healthcare Centre for their compassionate care of Francis, especially over the past few days.

Funeral arrangements entrusted to Maher’s Funeral Home, Placentia, NL.  Visitation will be held on Friday from 7pm to 9pm, and Saturday from 2pm to 5pm and 7pm to 9pm. Funeral Service will take place 3pm on Sunday, June 19th at Sacred Heart Church, Placentia.

They say that where there is great grief, there is great love. The “Golden Child” will be forever missed and lovingly remembered.
