Dear NLL Player Families ~
It is with the heaviest of hearts that I apprise you that our Neartown Little League President, Dr. Will Weber, passed away suddenly last night. Besides being one of the premiere educators at the University of Houston College of Education, Dr. Weber has been the absolute backbone of our Little League organization over the years -- literally building it from a small group of 40 players to the roster of 200+ that we have registered today and coordinating the construction of beautiful Hilton Field. He was also a stalwart supporter and active member of several other community organizations, including one of our key sponsors, the River Oaks Rotary Club. Despite all of the hours he devoted to his work and volunteer efforts, he always found time to spend with his family. His wife, Cheryl, son Brad, daughter-in-law Jennifer, and his grandchildren, were of utmost importance to him. He touched the lives of so many of us and will be sorely missed by all.
Funeral information is pending at the present time. As soon as I know the arrangements, I will pass them on to you. Please note that the 11-12 year old tournament team game that is scheduled this evening at 7PM at Hilton Field will be played.
On behalf of all of us with NLL, we extend our sincerest condolences, thoughts and prayers to all members of the Weber family.
