  • Pat Weber - 2009

Pat Weber was born in Phelps, Wis., and played his youth and high school hockey in Eagle River. After making his home in Eagle River, he continued to play hockey on the senior menís team and even now in the adult no-check league.

Though Weber continues to play, for countless years his strong suit has been his support of everything hockey in his community and in the State of Wisconsin. He served nine years as the president of the Eagle River Recreation Association, and many more years on the ERRA Board of Directors. He has spent many years as a youth hockey coach for Eagle River, and has served numerous terms as a member of the Board of Directors of the Wisconsin Hockey Hall of Fame. Weber has always been and continues to be a hands-on type of person when it comes to the promotion of ice hockey. Whether itís resurfacing the ice, performing mechanical or electrical repairs or serving on a committee to promote hockey, Weber is always one of the first to volunteer.

Weber continues to organize and run youth tournaments, and can be found running the clock at high school games. He helped raise the money and construct the new high school and youth locker rooms, chaired the ERRA Auction Committee for many years and is active with the organization and operation of the Northland Pines 3-on-3 Tournament. Not limiting his time to boys hockey, Weberís service on a committee and the respect he enjoys in his community helped encourage the Eagle River School District to start the Northland Pines Girls WIAA varsity program.

When USA Hockey awarded Eagle River the site selection for its USA Hockey Adult Classic Pond Hockey Tournament, Weber stepped up to the plate to serve as a director for this event. He helped turn this event from something small into a national tournament with more than 18 rinks being used by almost 200 teams from across the United States. From laying out the rinks, to organizing local support and plowing snow off the rinks with his fellow fire fighters, Weber is often the first volunteer to arrive in the morning and the last to leave at night.

Weber serves as the Fire Chief in Eagle River, and also helps organize and run the youth baseball program. He and his wife Lori have two children, Julia and Evan.
