Jack H. Weiss Obituary
Jack H. Weiss, 85, died Monday, Dec. 17, 2018. He was the husband of Andy; father of Lou (Amy), Stacy (Will Carpenter) and the late Ellen (Gregg Kander), (Anna Hollis); grandfather of Bari, Casey (Doug), Molly (Jon), Suzy, Cyd (Neal), Danny (Tonya), Maura, Isabelle (Chris), Desmond, Benjamin (Ali), Jacob, and Kate; great-grandfather of Finn, Sonny, and Elle. He was a newsboy - Pittsburgh Press, shipper and packer - Modern Curtain and Rug Co., sergeant - Army, head honcho - Weisshouse, founder - Chappy Goldstein Handball Club, developer - Weiss Properties, painter, mensch. Jack was a rags-to-riches tale come to life. From poor beginnings to amazing success, his life was beyond anything he imagined. He said that he owed his good fortune to the love of his life, Andy. Jack was especially proud of the awards he won for his paintings in juried shows. He wasn't sure if mentioning his homes in Longboat Key and North Truro would appear to be bragging. He was a sage adviser to family and friends and touched many lives. We will miss him terribly.
Services will be at 1 p.m. Wednesday, Dec. 19, 2018, at Temple Sinai, 5505 Forbes Ave., Squirrel Hill. No visitation prior to services. Entombment will take place in Homewood Cemetery. Arrangements entrusted to RALPH SCHUGAR CHAPEL INC., family owned and operated.
