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.

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.
