The ceremony will also be hosted by the Penticton Church of Nazarene and is open to the public.

Weberg died of bone cancer at the age of 36 on June 28. He made a impact on the community as a pastor for the Penticton Church of the Nazarene, a youth pastor at Penticton Bethel Church and chaplain for the Vees.

“He had the ability to connect with every age group. He was a people person in the truest sense,” Church of the Nazarene pastor Neil Allenbrand, who worked with him for 11 years, previoulsy told the Penticton Western News. “He always made people feel valued, important. He was not a man of many words. He was a man of many actions.”

Weberg is survived by his wife Kristin and two children.

The celebration of life takes place at 11 a.m. Any past or present Vees players who would like to attend are asked to contact kevan.scott@penticton.ca.
