Obituary for Marvin Lawrence Weiss

Our beloved father, grandfather, great-grandfather, father-in-law, and friend, Marvin Lawrence Weiss of Berlin, CT comfortably passed on September 17 at the VA hospital in Brockton, MA.

He was born on May 29, 1927 the son of Robert S. and Esther B. Weiss of Cohoes, NY. Marvin grew up during the great depression after the loss of his mother at age 5. As with many from his generation he enlisted in the U.S. Navy at age 17 to fight in World War II. He spent the war years in the South Pacific aboard the Battleship USS New Jersey and was involved in multiple actions. After the war he married Helen C. Kolman of Pittsfield, MA in 1952.

He earned a B.S. degree from Sienna College in Troy, NY. His business career spanned from a wholesale candy/sundries company, paint and wallpaper to vice president of Viking Aluminum Company in New Britain, CT.

He was a true renaissance man with talents ranging from cooking, carpentry, oil painting, restoring cars and boats, collecting antiques, target shooting and sailing. He had a true passion for anything mechanical. He enjoyed traveling to various flea markets and old car shows. He always had a strong passion for life with a positive attitude and a great sense of humor. In addition his honesty and generosity were always present.

He was predeceased by his only brother, Stanley R. Weiss and his wife, Helen.

Survivors include his son and daughter-in-law, Eric and Julie Weiss of Berlin, CT, his daughter and son-in-law, Gerald and Nancy Anderson of Sharon, MA, five grandchildren and one great-granddaughter.

He was truly one of the greatest of the great generation.
