John was raised in Moscow as one of eight children born to Jack and Rose Weber.
John attended school in Moscow ultimately earning a Master of Business Degree from the University of Idaho. He had a varied and full work career in sales which he loved because it allowed him to connect with the Moscow community. He advocated for programs that continue to benefit the health and well-being of Moscow’s youth, notably his support of the Palouse Ice Rink and the Moscow Bear Boosters. John made lifelong friends in every aspect of his life.
John’s civic career began in 2006 when he was elected to the City Council, serving through 2009. John was again elected to City Council in 2014 and was serving at the time of his death.
John was proud to be one of the founding board members for the Urban Renewal Agency. He was an active member of the Moscow Elks Lodge and Golf Club beginning 1974.
