Karl J. “Archie” Vebber, 59, of 649 Lake Cove Pointe Circle, Winter Garden, Fl, passed May 21, 2013 at the emergency room at Samaritan Medical Center after being suddenly stricken at the home of his father in Black River.
Mr. Vebber worked for the Village of Black for 33 years and retired in 2008 as the Superintendent of Public Works. Following his retirement he worked for the Jefferson County Highway Department for three summers.The couple moved to Florida in 2012 where he continued to work for his son-in-law, Ashley Rumble.
Karl was very active in the community. He was a charter member of the Black River Ambulance Squad, former member of the Black River Fire Department, former Police Deputy for the Village of Black River, Past Trustee of the Watertown Elks Lodge #496, member of the “Orphan Bowling Team” for the Elks, and member of the NYS Rural Water Association.
He especially loved spending time with his family and four beautiful granddaughters.
Among his survivors are his loving wife of 38 years, Sarala R. Vebber, Winter Garden, FL; his two daughters and their husbands, Kristen V. and Ashley R. Rumble, Windermere, FL, Amy V. and Rich L. Pierce III, Torrington, CT; his father, Richard Vebber, Winter Garden, FL; four granddaughters, Madeline, Ella, Lily Rumble and Samantha Pierce; three cousins, Sister Kathleen Clark, St. Augustine, Fl, Raymond N. Vebber, Greensboro, NC, Richard C. Vebber, Black River.
Karl was such a presence in all our lives and was such a generous, caring man to his friends, of which he had many. He was a guy who loved humor and beer. So we all need to laugh, tell a joke and salute a too short life well lived. He was a terrific, stern father and a fun loving “Grampie."
Donations may be made to the Sarah House 100 Roberts Ave. Ste 10, Syracuse, NY
