He graduated with honors from W&J College and the University of Pittsburgh Medical School in 1966. His two-year residency in Cardio-Thoracic surgery was at Duke University. He changed his specialty and completed a three-year residency as a General Surgeon at Louisiana State University. Doctor Weber then served as a surgeon with the U.S. Army. He returned to the University of Pittsburgh for an additional residency in Plastic, Reconstructive and Hand Surgery completing his studies in 1975. Following this he moved with his wife Patricia and their daughters Mari-Pat and Lynn Marie to Albuquerque, NM and started his private practice in 1975. He retired in 2004. He was an excellent surgeon with a zest for life which included scuba diving, snow skiing, water skiing, road biking, traveling and a great love of continued knowledge and education. He and his family traveled and he spent much of his free time in philanthropic plastic reconstruction and hand surgery in Asia, South America and in New Mexico and Nevada. He was a most amazing friend, husband and father. He is survived by his wife, Pat; and his daughter, Mari-Pat. His youngest daughter Lynn Marie preceded him in death in 1999 from complications of toxic exposure which led to a non-Hodgkin's Lymphoma. His only sibling is Beth Weber Hoffman of Sykesville, PA.
