With amazing longevity and consistency, he won 4 all-star titles, 11 All-American Team honors, 20 PBA tournaments and 6 senior titles in an unprecedented five decades, and was inducted into both major bowling halls of fame. Dick Weber's textbook form, consummate skill, and devotion to his sport epitomized class on and off the lanes.
