William Joseph Weiman passed away holding the hand of his beloved wife of 55 years, Dolores Weiman. During his last days he was surrounded by what he held most dear to his heart: his family. His life reflected selflessness, integrity and love devotion to his family.
He was born in Baltimore, MD, to William and Gertrude Weiman and had 6 siblings. He enlisted in the United States Marines and proudly served from 1953-1962, being stationed stateside, Japan, Korea and Taiwan.
He met the love of his life, Dolores O'Keefe, while at Patuxent River Naval Training Center. He was a handsome Marine military guard who noticed the beautiful Navy Wave at the gate. After four months they married on January 19, 1957.
His life centered on providing for and loving his family. While often working more than one job, he managed to attend, actively lead and support in sporting events and school activities. His devotion to family continued as he proudly doted on his grandchildren and great-grandchildren.
He retired from the Post Office in 1995 and enjoyed many years of carpentry, fishing, sports and family. Where there was a family event, he was there. Until his last breath, he demonstrated how much he adored his "bride."
