Experienced skydiver dies on Memorial Day

By adminon - Read 1907 times

Experienced skydiver Tony Weber, died Memorial Day weekend from injuries sustained from a hard landing at Cedartown Georgia, Atlanta Skydiving Center. During a holiday road trip with friends, to celebrate college graduation, Tony made a hard landing under a relatively new Vengence 150, at the DZ. He was airlifted off the DZ and died of his injuries 4 hours later.

Tony was a regular jumper at SEMO Skydiving. He was the president of the SIU Skydiving Club. He was a great role model for the new jumpers, and a positive influence on skydiving in general. He was working on his instructional rating and would have been an asset to our club, or any skydiving operation. He was a really good guy.

His parents moniter the NG if you would like to make a positive comment. I have the address of his parents if anyone would like to send a card.

We are all saddened by his loss, and will miss him. He died doing what he loved best...skydiving.

Paul Gholson SEMO Skydiving D-17101 instructor
