Steven V. Weiger
Steven V. "Steve" Weiger, 62 of Midland, died Friday, October 16, 2020 at his home after a battle with brain cancer. He was born April 3, 1958 in Midland, son of the late Jerry and Connie (Caterer) Weiger. Steve attended Midland Schools and graduated from Midland High School in 1976. He married the former Michelle Kaminski on October 19, 1991 in Midland. Steve worked for the city of Midland as an equipment operator for over 30 years, retiring in 2013. After retirement, Steve went to work for Servinski Sod Service driving a snowplow through the winter and was a driver for Garber Chevrolet and McCardles (now Betten Baker). He was a member of Blessed Sacrament Catholic Church and a 30-year member of MHSAA where he was a referee for football, softball, basketball, and baseball. Steve assigned referees for high school and junior high basketball. He played softball in his younger years, enjoyed golf, bowling, camping, playing cards with family and friends, and was an avid sports fan. Steve loved harness racing and betting on the ponies.
He is survived by his wife, Michelle; son, Christopher Greenia (fiancée Ashleigh); daughter Andrea Weiger; step-daughter Tonya Branch; grandchildren, Julianna, Arista, Alayna, Marlena, Chloe, and Caylee; brother-in-law Chuck (Dianne) Kaminski; sisters-in-law Darla Kaminski and Sue (Glenn) Wegner. In addition to his parents, Steve was preceded in death by sister-in-law Evelyn (Ralph) Wheeler, brothers-in-law Eugene (Dorene) Kaminski and James Kaminski, and uncle, Kurt Caterer.

I am sorry for the loss of Steven, he was quite a guy, always willing to help and pretty good in any sports he played. Active in the community and always playing or reffing.

Shelly and I are so sad to hear this news. Steve was truly a remarkable man. We are honored to call him a friend. So many memories...from early years of Community Center Basketball to recent class of ‘76 reunions/milestone celebrations Steve was always there with a smile and a kind word. Thinking of him and his family during this difficult time.

My condolences to Steve's family! This news was a terrible shock. I worked in the office where Steve worked for the City of Midland. He always had a smile on his face. He was a prankster too! One night when he was on snow watch and I was working late on budget, he drove through and launched a snow ball at the window where I sat and scared me so bad! He must have felt a little bad about that and bought me a Subway Sandwich the next evening. You could never be mad at him because you knew it was all in good-natured fun.

Michelle and Family, Steve's passing breaks our hearts, a great guy to work with and even better on the field officiating the kids games. Our deepest sympathy.

Weegs had a distinct voice that you could hear amongst hundreds, and his spirited cajoling of a Loons third baseman won my son a new hardball. He also possessed a happy laugh whether draining a Three on our middle school hoops team, when Dialing his Ride, being seen on his streetsweeper or ploughman cometh, or out standing as a Family Man. Hope Steve finds a fiver with D, Bear, Moff, and SS on pom. Prayers and strength to the family. Going to miss you friend, Hoogs.

I have known Steve since we very young. We have gone to school together, played sports together and he made sure there was not too much snow at the end of my driveway. Whenever I saw Steve it was like we had not missed a day. He will be greatly missed. Prayers for his family.

Steve was a good guy. His smile lit up a room, and he was always easy to talk to. I knew him through sports (we umpired softball together and played basketball in the rec leagues down at the center.) He was well-liked by many and will be dearly missed. Condolences to his family and friends.
