Two years without justice
Family celebrates life of unsolved murder victim
The holiday season will never be the same for the Weber family, following Ronald Weber’s murder on Dec. 2, 2010. On the two-year anniversary of his death, the family is focused on celebrating Ronald Weber’s life while continuing to seek justice for the unsolved crime.
On Thanksgiving Day, the Weber family held a candlelight vigil at dusk, following Thanksgiving dinner. According to Ronald Weber’s sister Bobbie Weber, the vigil was a chance for family members to share memories and stories about Ronald Weber.
“He was loved as (a) coach and helped many children in Little League that were less fortunate,” Bobbie Weber said. “He was a plumbing contractor and his life was his children and family.”
Many family members could not make it for the first vigil and the Weber family is holding a second, larger vigil on Christmas Eve.
“He is loved and missed so much by so many, every day,” Bobbie Weber said.
Weber was last seen by his family on Nov. 26, 2010, driving a 1990s Ford Ranger pickup truck. On Dec. 2, 2010, an off-roader discovered Weber’s body near Lake Arrowhead Road and Highway 173. Highways were shut down overnight to investigate.
The medical examiner determined the manner of death to be a homicide, though investigators did not want to release any details regarding his injuries or the cause of death, according to the San Bernardino County Sheriff’s Department.
Weber, also known as Punch, was part-owner along with other family members of the Hesperia Feed Bin at 16770 Yucca St., near C Avenue in Hesperia.
Last year, donated billboards were placed throughout the High Desert with Weber’s picture and a $3,000 reward for information leading to the murderer’s arrest and conviction. These billboards have since been removed, but the family is still seeking justice.
“A reward is offered to anyone who can bring justice leading to the arrest and conviction of Ron’s murder,” Bobbie Weber said.
The Sheriff’s department is continuing to investigate this murder. Anyone with information about the murder is urged to contact Detective Steer at (909) 387-3577. Callers who wish to remain anonymous can contact the WeTip hotline at (800) 78-CRIME or leave tips at www.WeTip.com.
