---- — David J. Webber of Sharon passed away peacefully at 11:50 a.m. Monday (1-14-13) in the hospital of Sharon Regional Health System after an extended illness. He was 71.

A lifelong resident of Sharon, Mr. Webber was born Oct. 27, 1941, in Christian H. Buhl Hospital, now the hospital of Sharon Regional Health System, a son of Ray and Helen Diurba Webber.

He was a member of Sharon High School’s graduating class of 1960.

Following high school, he enlisted in the Army and achieved the rank of sergeant or “Buck Sergeant,” Specific 5. He was honorably discharged March 5, 1964.

He worked for the City of Sharon as a police officer and retired from the department as a patrol sergeant in August 1995. He then gained employment with Delphi Packard Electric Systems, Warren, Ohio, and retired from there in 2005.

White, where through the years he organized many events including countless turkey shoots.

He belonged to American Legion Post 299 and Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 1338, both Sharon.

A loving husband, father and grandfather, he found his greatest joy when surrounded by his family and when he was rooting for his Cleveland Browns.
