Weber holds several patents, three recent ones plus his first issued in 1991 titled, "Method and Apparatus for Removing Oxygen from a Semiconductor Processing Chamber."
He lectured part-time at California Polytechnic State University in San Luis Obispo, California.
He is an ordained deacon of the Roman Catholic Church, and served as Catholic Chaplain at the Atascadero State Hospital in California, a maximum security facility designed to house the criminally insane.
