Memorial and funeral arrangements had not been finalized as of Monday afternoon.

All U.S. flags on District 118 campuses will be flown at half-staff this week in Weber's memory, Superintendent Daniel Coles said Monday.

"Purple and gold ran through his veins," Coles said in an email to the Daily Herald, referring to Wauconda High's colors. "He was an outstanding school board member. If it wasn't good for kids, he wanted no part of it."

The owner of the Nut and Candy House in Wauconda, Weber had served on the District 118 board since 1995. His tenure included stints as board president and secretary. He last won election in 2013.

Weber volunteered with the Wauconda Booster Club, the Wauconda Fest Committee and other groups. He also had worked as a security guard at Mundelein High School.

"The D118 community has lost a dear friend and a most ardent supporter," Coles wrote in an email to his staff.

In a Daily Herald questionnaire he completed last year, Weber said he wanted to ensure Wauconda's schools were a strong part of the local community.

"One of my goals has always been to provide our students with the education to be the leaders of our country," he wrote.
