It must have been 1971. We walk into music class at Copeland School and there is this dynamic guy pacing the floor. he lines a bunch of us guys up who played sports and stupidly thought we were too cool for music and tells each of us to sing a note or two. He then separates us by tenor or bass. He works with each group. It is obvious he cares. About us and his craft. By the end of the class we are piping out 3 or 4 traditional football fight songs with heart and soul and having fun and loving life. And we can't wait for the next time we are with this man.

And death shall have no dominion.

I consider myself lucky to have been a student of Mr. Weitz from 1974-1976 at Copeland Middle School. I absolutely loved going to Chorus, Music Theory and was lucky to be a part of building the brand new "recording studio". I learned so much from him.
He was a great teacher and I consider myself fortunate to have been a student of his.
My condolences to his family during this time.

Back in 1972/1973 I was an awkward 13 year old boy I playing three sports and trying to fit in. I met Bob at Copeland Middle school in Rockaway. I loved music, however, I was socially aware enough to know neither the athletes or the choir members were going to be accepting of me if I pursued both. Bob told me he loved sports too and not to worry about what others said. If you enjoy both, do both. Bob helped me find my voice! Great advice that probably doesn't surprise those that knew him. The Copeland Choir was way ahead of its time. We sang in competitions, school openings in town and for other school districts. Bob also had an impact on me in a more meaningful way. By way of action, he taught me humility, passion and compassion. Our choir was prepping for a big competition and had a mandatory after school practice. I missed the practice. I see Bob the next day in class and he blows up on me! He says How can I expect you to be prepared if you can't show up at practice? I blurted I'm sorry. Then rather heatedly he says I should just leave you here at the school. If you skip football, basketball or or football games, does the coach have to play you? Sheepishly I said No. Bob continues with What was so damn important that you couldn't make it yesterday? I reply I promised the special ed kids that I would teach them how to catch a baseball. A sudden calm came over his face. He starts writing something and says Good choice. Give this note to the cafeteria monitor and come back here during lunch. We will go over your part. My part was Cambiata. I continued to play sports until I was to old to play. I still referee high school basketball, but I don't take games on Thursdays. I have Choir practice. Prayers to the Weitz family. Thank you for sharing him with his singers!

Lois, Deepest sympathy, to you, your sons, and the rest of the family, on the passing of Bob. I was shocked when I saw Matthew' post.
Thinking of all of you during this sad time.
Fondly,
Sue Thompson Headley
