Gove County Sheriff’s Office Message:

His smile and sense of humor was second to none and shadowed only by his loving, tender heart. His family was the source of his being; affectionately called “Bacha” by his grandchildren, he told endless stories about them – and his tough exterior would melt at the mention of their names. He was also an extraordinary public servant both locally and at the state level, and honored his brotherhood ceaselessly. He loved his blue family as his true family, he held them all in the highest regard. He represented everything that is good about us here in Gove County. He embodied faith, family, friendship, and forgiveness, living these principles out loud every day. In a time of terrible sadness, let us find peace knowing he was met on the other side by his beloved parents, extended family, and many friends. In an extension of the ties that bind us as a community, let us also settle into a mindset of peace and wellbeing for one another to honor his memory. May you Rest in Peace Sheriff Weber. You will be missed.
