Jun 20, 1944 - Nov 28, 2014
Friday morning, November 28th, Lyndall T. Weber, age 71, made the journey to be with our Heavenly Father. This ended his courageous four and a half year battle with cancer. He put up a heck of a fight with an optimistic attitude.
Lyndall Taylor Weber was born June 20, 1943 in Lander, Wyoming, the son of Raymond and Lela (Taylor) Weber.
He met Connie Bracken in 1964 at the A & W Drive-In where she worked as a car-hop. They were married October 2, 1965
and raised two sons together. He was a lifelong resident of Fremont County and attended Morton High School for 12 years. He served 6 years in the National Guard from 1964-1971. He started working at the young age of 14 for Skaggs Auto. He then went to work for Chopping Chevrolet running the wrecker and doing service work. In 1964 he went to work for Bob Kraus at Bob's Frontier where he did service work, mechanic work, and drove bulk and dump trucks. Bob switched service stations to Bob's Husky and Lyndall later acquired the station renaming it to Lyndall's Husky. He owned and operated the station for 9 years. They also managed the Zanetti Bus Station in Riverton. After leaving the station, Lyndall went to work for Gilpatrick Construction, Montgomery Wards, Cars, Inc., Diversified Auto, and then Top of the Hill Auto. He was an "old school" mechanic and preferred working on the older automobiles. After leaving Top Of the Hill Auto he went to work for HomeSmart doing general maintenance on manufactured homes. He retired in 2003.
Lyndall loved to go camping and ride motorcycles with friends and family, and they spent many years enjoying their time in the mountains. Lyndall and Connie loved to travel with friends and took two major trips; a three month trip, across Canada to Nova Scotia and back through the New England States in the fall, and one up through Canada, the Yukon, and traveled Alaska for over two months. Lyndall was of the LDS faith and was very spiritual. He loved tinkering with old tractors and engines and loved the challenge of fixing things. Lyndall's family said he loved gardening, watching birds, squirrels, and rabbits in his back yard. He also enjoyed watching old western movies on TV.
