David Frederick Woeber

David Frederick “Dave” Woeber, 75, of Wheeling, WV, passed away Wednesday, February 16, 2022 at his home.

He was born May 14, 1946, the son of the late Andrew and Helen A. Woeber. Dave was a U.S. Navy Veteran where he served as a Medical Corpsman. Following his military service, Dave was employed by East Ohio Regional Hospital as an X-ray Technician before advancing to a CAT Scan Technologist, where he retired after more than 30 years. He was a Christian by faith.

Dave was an avid golfer and would play regularly for many years. He enjoyed and found great pleasure in helping to organize luncheons and reunions for his high school class and was known to run a lot of the technology for these events. For over 25 years Dave played the drums for a local band, Vince Kelner and the Esquires, where he preformed for numerous events and weddings.

In addition to his parents he is preceded in death by his son, Don Woeber; a daughter-in-law, Nicole (Lyttle) Woeber and his former in-laws, Donald and Mildred Smith.

Dave is survived by his son, David V. Woeber; his grandson Jaxon Woeber, whom he cherished more than anything and his former wife, Donna (Terry) Wadsworth.

A celebration of life will be held at a later date.

    RIP, Dave. I will miss 'jamming' with you in my den as you played the drums and I played the keyboards. We had a blast and had so much fun at parties here at my home. Condolences for your son, David, and your former wife, Vivian, who misses you too. Apparently God needed another Angel.

    Condolences to David & Jaxon who I'm sure will be comforted in knowing that God will help to ease your pain as you process the passing of your father/grandfather. He was so proud of both of you as am I. I had many good years helping your father raise you, David, and Don, and will cherish those memories forever.

    David and Jaxon, My thoughts and prayers are with you doing this sad time. Your father/grandfather was a focal point of the CT department at EORH during his many years there. He touched and inspired many people. He spoke very lovingly of his entire family. He had great pride in all of you. He will be forever remembered as a leader at EORH.

    David and Jaxon, we are so saddened to learn of your father and grandfather's passing. We have such fond memories of the many years the Esquires played music together and when we lived across the alley from each other in Tiltonsville. We will never forget the many music gigs when Roger asked for the drummer to do a roll...and Dave got up from behind his drums, proceeded to the center of the dance floor, and executed a perfect summersault! We say, " Roll on, Dave"; you are in our hearts forever.
