Robert Darryl Winneberger

Robert Darryl Winneberger went home to be with Jesus on September 1, 2022.

Robert was born in August of 1971 and grew up in Buckhannon, WV with his three siblings. Robert graduated from Buckhannon-Upshur High School in 1990, where he later joined the U.S. Army and went on to serve in Germany in 1992. After the military, Robert used his knowledge to pursue a career in the Oil and Gas Industry. He took a job as a heavy equipment operator for Universal Well Services.

Robert reunites with his late father, Ernest Weaver II and his eldest son, Nathaniel Winneberger at the feet of Jesus.

In his free time, Robert enjoyed fishing, watching his sons play football and being snuggled up on the couch watching the Hallmark Channel. He will be dearly missed by many.
