Stephen Robert Weber
Stephen Robert “SR” Weber passed away peacefully at his home in Henderson Nevada in the early morning hours on Wednesday January 25, 2022 at the age of 75.
He was born on September 23, 1946 in W. St Paul, Minnesota to Nathan Frank and Betty J. (Youngberg) Weber.
Steve attended Las Vegas High School during the Rat Pack Years, and loved driving Fremont Street in his friend’s corvette (the good old days) he would say…when the Neon was still gleaming!
He proudly served his country as a US Navy Tin Can Sailor on the USS Radford destroyer as a radio control man during the Vietnam War. After his tour in Vietnam he was stationed in Hawaii for 2 years and just loved it there.
Steve was happily married to his soul mate Linda Marie for 37 wonderful years where they resided in Part City, Utah living next door to his parents and becoming a loving caregiver to both.
He was a skilled journeyman carpenter that always enjoyed woodworking on his homes, building fireplace mantles and putting up crown moldings throughout. Such a perfectionist in all that he did! In his love for everything railroad he followed his dream and was employed at the Heber Valley Railroad riding the rails as a conductor, retail sales manager, and events coordinator.
Steve was a true model railroad buff that loved playing with his train table, his American Flyer trains and creating his own little world with tunnels, trees, tinplate windup carnival rides, convertible car shows, pavilions, and hotdog stands. He never lost the inner-child that we all loved about him…with a grin on his face most always.
In his retirement years he enjoyed travelling in hi motorhome, camping in his favorite Uintah Mountains, boating on his Bayliner, and swimming laps in his pool.
He is survived by his wife Linda, sons Matthew Weber, Matthew Guiste, sister Marilyn Perkins (Ozzie), brother Donald Weber, sister-in-law Kathy Weber, cousins, and many loving nieces and nephews. His parents death proceeded his own.
Steve was a one of a kind, all around good guy with integrity and a selflessness like no other.
He will be missed by all who were ever fortunate enough to have known him.
