NAPLES — Dana “Big D” Webber Sr., 83, passed away peacefully surrounded by his family on Thursday, June 18, 2015.

He was born in Presque Isle on May 14, 1932, the son of the late Earl and Minnie Webber.

He was an Air Force veteran, and following his service time, he chose the profession of professional truck driver, which he loved. He drove for Superior Propane in Ellington, Conn., for 22 years, and loved driving his big red Kenworth and visiting with his friends at the truck stop in New York. Driving his truck was like a second home to him. In retirement, he and his wife, Betty, traveled the country in their RV. He loved all his friends at the various truck stops he went to, especially in New York. He was a religious man, who cared deeply about his family and friends.

He leaves endless memories with his family including camping and snowmobiling trips to northern Maine. He was in his glory when he was cutting wood, and was an avid fan of the Red Sox, Patriots and the New York Giants. He also loved to watch his UConn Huskies.

He is survived by his wife of 59 years, Betty Webber; four children, Rod Webber of Enfield, Conn., Scott Webber, Debbie Kellner and Dana Jr., all of Ellington, Conn., where he brought up his family; eight grandchildren; five great-grandchildren; numerous nieces and nephews; brother, Peter Webber; and sister, Earlene Clark. He will also be missed by his snowmobile buddies from the Muddy River SnoSeekers in Maine, who created numerous stories over the years.

He was predeceased by his brother, Richard Webber, sister Jean Aldrich, and sister Joyce Good.

There are no calling hours. A memorial service will be held at the convenience of the family. The Cremation Society of Connecticut, Windsor, has been entrusted with arrangements.
