Esber was preceded in death by his parents, Naif and Margaret Tweel. He is survived by his wife, Carol Lynn; son, Brian; daughter, Monica; son, Brent (Mandy); six grandchildren, Elizabeth, David, Alexander, Abigail, Wyatt and Thatcher; and his brother, Victor Tweel.
Esber was born in Huntington, graduated from Marshall with a B.S. in engineering and then, later, at Virginia Seminary with a Master's of Divinity. He started his ministry in Romney at St. Stephen's Episcopal Church before moving to Charleston in 1974 as priest of The Church of the Good Shepherd in Kanawha City. It was here that he embraced and served his congregation for 30-plus years. During this time he developed a daycare at the church that touched the lives of multiple generations and developed tours of the Holy Land and the Middle East in hopes of bringing about awareness, tolerance and, most of all, peace.
In addition to his dedication to family, community and parishioners, Esber will always be remembered for his love of martial arts, weight lifting, racquetball and riding his bike to visit families throughout Kanawha City and at the hospital. His drive to remain fit and active extended beyond the confines of his disease, which allowed those at Nautilus to become a second family that he cherished and exercised with up until the week before his passing. Although he never met a stranger, his family will always remember the support and companionship that he received by a close circle of friends that visited him every Saturday in recent years. His grandchildren will always remember their Jiddi for his treasure hunts, rides on his wheelchair and his pearls of wisdom. We also would be remiss if we did not thank Joe Rodgers, his caregiver, whose banter always uplifted his spirit.
Esber will be honored at a memorial service at 1 p.m. on Dec. 14 at St. John's Episcopal Church with the Rev. Jim Lewis, the Rev. Dr. Jennie Gould and the Rev. Kent Higgins officiating. A memorial gathering will be held at The Church of the Good Shepherd following the service.
Instead of flowers, the family requests that donations be made to Manna Meal or Hospice.
He was born in Lerona, enjoyed camping down south and was a retired truck driver from Falwell Freight Lines.
Preceding him in death were his wife, Naomi Alice Wiley White; parents, Fred and Georgia Crews White; and sister, Pansy White Blevins.
Surviving are his son and daughter-in-law, Larry and Nancy White of Pinch; grandchildren and their spouses, A.J. and Alisha White of Teays Valley, Craig and Amber White and great grandson, Jacob Alan White, all of Pinch; sister, Mary Noble of Roanoke, Va.; sister-in-law, Ruth Wiley Maxey of Princeton; special friend, Frances Smith of Pinch; and several nieces and nephews.
