Lawrence Joseph Weber lll, age 78, passed away November 29, 2023 at his home after a long illness.
Joe was born on February 28, 1945 in Manhattan,Kansas to Lawrence T and Lila Rogers Weber. The family moved to Fort Worth in 1949, where Joe attended E. M. Daggett and George
C Clarke Elem., Rosemont Jr. High, and graduated from R. L. Paschal H.S. in 1964. He married his high school sweetheart, Susan Gant. Their only child, Lawrence Joseph Weber lV, was born
on March 19, 1965.
Joe began his career as a draftsman for the General Dynamics plant, later moving to the Volkswagen/Valeo Corp., eventually holding the position of Senior Engineer. Joe spent the final years of his career working for the FWISD and retired in 2015. 

Joe was a life-long student, forever curious, with myriad interests. A prolific reader, he was well-versed in politics, philosophy, astronomy, theology and history, just to name a few. Joe and Susan were life-long democrats, active at both the state and local level, working for numerous candidates and campaigns over the years. Both were elected as delegates to the state conventions and Joe ran for Councilman in Parker Co.
In 1970 Joe and Susan helped found and manage the “Fort Worth Food Co-Op”, providing one of the first sources for locally grown,organic produce in the area. Joe founded the local chapter of the “A.R.E.” (Association for Research and Enlightenment),a society based on the teachings of renowned clairvoyant and holistic healer, Edgar Cayce. He became an expert in Kirlian photography, giving lectures on the subject at local libraries and even constructing his own Kirlian camera for use in demonstrations.

Joe loved music, playing in a band during his high school years and was renowned for his wild boogie woogie piano! He and Susan were avid concertgoers and when Joe purchased a
vintage limousine in 1969, he spent many happy weekends chauffeuring bands such as Z Z Top and Freddie King to their area gigs.

Joe traveled extensively throughout his career, making trips to Germany, South Africa, Japan, and many other countries. He and Susan enjoyed family vacation trips to the Yucatan Peninsula, Puerto Plata in the Dominican Republic, San Francisco, Hawaii, and South Padre Island.

Joe was preceded in death by his parents; wife of 52 years, Susan; and son, Larry.

He is survived by grandsons, Lawrence Joseph Weber V and Paul Gant Weber; brother, Dennis R. Weber, and wife Paula; sisters, Linda F. Weber and Brenda W. Cole, and husband Earl;
