John Weiss Obituary
John W. Weiss, MD

February 14, 1934-October 31, 2018

John W. Weiss, MD, loving father, distinguished dermatologist, avid golfer, happy convertible driver, inveterate traveler, operaphile, and loving companion, died the night of 31 October, 2018. He would have been 85 on 14 February.

His proudest achievements were his sons, Bill and Paul, his profession as a full professor of dermatology at both UCSF and at Loyola University Stritch School of Medicine as well as his practices in both Evanston IL and Castro Valley CA. He was a very happy and proud husband of his late wife Suzanne whose life, as did his, ended too soon. And he was adored by his companion, Heidi "my lifetime companion."

He was born on 14 February, 1934 to Alex and Nellie Weiss and grew up in Milwaukee, WI, the youngest of three. After graduating from the University of Wisconsin, Madison he attended the University of Wisconsin Medical School followed by residency in dermatology at the University of Chicago. He became chairman of the department of dermatology at Loyola Stritch School of Medicine where he served from 1969 to 1985 while also building a busy practice in Evanston IL. In 1992 he and Suzanne relocated to the Bay Area where served on the faculty of UCSF as full professor of dermatology as well as building a practice in Castro Valley.

Mere words can't convey the treasure that was he. Donations to the University of Wisconsin Medical School are his choice of remembrance.
