David G. Weis

David G. Weis

October 30, 1962 – December 6, 2020


David Weis, resident of Omaha, Nebraska, died Sunday, December 6th, 2020, at the age of 58 after a year-long battle with Non-Hodgkin’s Lymphoma.  He died while at home, surrounded by his wife and family.

Dave is survived by his mother, Leona Smith (Don); his wife, Diane; his siblings: Mike Weis (Rosemary), Shelly Wickersham (Ted), and Carol Igo (Bob); his children: Matt Weis (Carrie), Megan Drelicharz (Matt), Jamie Harris (Brian), and Emily Weis (Joel Barajas).  He is preceded in death by his father, Gene Weis, and his brother, Danny Weis.

Dave was born in Harlan, Iowa on October 30, 1962 to Gene and Leona Weis.  He went to Harlan High School and University of Nebraska-Omaha.  On June 25, 1983 he married his high-school sweetheart, Diane Gaul at St. Joseph’s Church in Earling, IA.  Four children were added to this union.  He worked for First Data Corporation for 30 years, but his favorite job was driving for Uber.  He loved sharing stories of brushes with famous people and bizarre experiences with passengers, but mostly he just loved connecting with people.

Dave was a guy who filled the room with laughter and had an impact on everyone he met.  He loved Iowa Hawkeyes sports and the Green Pay Backers, but mostly he just loved spending time with his family.  He especially loved the joy and noise of having grandkids running around the house.

    There are just no words that can truly express our sorrow on Dave’s passing. He was one of the most genuine people I have ever known. Good heart & a soul to match. This world has lost an amazing human being. They are so hard to find these days & Dave was one of the best. Cherish his memory forever. May God embrace you in his loving arms & hold you tight.

    Dear Weis family, I worked with Dave at First Data, and really enjoyed our conversations about softball. He will be missed, but I’m sure he is now sharing his stories in heaven. My prayers of peace and joy go out to all of you.

    What a guy! I could only hope to be as positive about everything in life as Dave. He will be missed. Dave and I would message one another about our battles with cancer. He claimed he never lost his hair – he held on to that right down to the last two hairs. Always made me laugh. I pray you can find peace knowing Dave is no longer suffering and has been called home to eternity.
