Steven
Steven "Pinky" Weibel of Torrance, Ca. passed away on Tuesday, June 9th, 2009. He was 54 years old when he was welcomed into God's arms. Steve was born in Wisconsin and moved to Torrance when he was 9 years old. Steve was an outstanding electrician by trade and an All Star Softball player in life. He spent roughly 35 years perfecting his two passions. He played softball on many teams throughout the years and had traveled extensively with his teams looking to beat the best competition they could find. Steve is survived by his mother, Marion Weibel, his brother Scott (Lori) Weibel, nephews Max and Jack Weibel, niece Madison Chavez and many more members of his extended family and friends. He was preceded in death by his father, Owen Weibel. A Memorial Mass will be held on Steve's 55th birthday at St. James Church in Redondo Beach on July 1st at 10:30 am. A reception will immediately follow at the Torrance Elk's Lodge. Persons attending are encouraged to wear softball jerseys in tribute to Steve's love for the game. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made in his name to the American Cancer Society at www.cancer.org.

  1. To all of Steve’s relatives: I was so sorry to hear of Steve’s passing. My brother Jerald used to hang around with Steve in their middle-school & high-school days, and we also had one of Angel and Lanny’s puppies–Pride–back in the mid-1960s. I don’t remember a lot about Steve except that he was very kind to me (oh, and of course, all that red hair!). One memory I do have is when I was probably 7 or 8 years old and had something stinging me behind my neck. Steve took the time to try to find out what it was and ended up pulling out some little bug that was stinging me and was tangled up in my hair. That might seem like a little thing, but I remember being impressed at the time because he helped me (when I expected one of my brothers to). I’m sure he will be sorely missed by all of you. My husband and I live in Colorado now so we won’t make it to the service, but we wish you all much peace as you try to carry on with all your great memories of the wonderful person that Steve was.

  2. I played softball with Steve for only the last 3 years and wish I had the opportunity to know him for longer. He was one of the most up beat people on the softball field. Never heard him talk bad about someone and was a pleasure to be on and off the field with him. He will be missed by all who knew him. Now I will have to buy my own Beef Jerky Nuggets.

  3. I MET PINKY ON THE BASEBALL CIRCUT WHILE HE WAS ON THE TEAM DOUBLE PLAY WE HAD MANY CONFERSATION ABOUT A VARIETY OF THINGS AND I GOT TO KNOW HE EVEN NOT ONLY AS BASBALL PLAYER BUT AS A PERSON AND FRIEND. I KNOW THAT HE HAD A BIG HEART FOR OTHER PEOPLE THAT HAD PROBLEMS AND DID HIS BEST TO COMFORT THEM ILL MISS HIM HE WAS A FRIEND AT FIRST SIGHT I KNOW THAT HE’S ON THE BEST TEAM NOW AND WILL BE MVP FOREVER. ILL ALWAYS REMEMBER YOU MY FRIEND.
