Michael Robert Weis
16 February, 1958 – 22 September, 2020
Michael Robert Weis returned to his Heavenly Father Tuesday, September 22nd, 2020 after a valiant battle with cancer.
Born on February 16, 1958 in Salt Lake City, Utah to William Talmage Weis and Elaine Schwar Weis. Mike grew up with a large family with whom he shared many special memories. He especially loved going fishing with his grandpa.
Mike later joined the U.S. Navy and was stationed in San Diego, CA where at the tender age of 19, he met and fell in love with Lucia Rodriguez. They stole each other’s hearts and were married on July 16, 1983 in Salt Lake City. They built a life from the ground up together and he often spoke about how his greatest joys in life were the five children and five grandchildren he and Lucia were blessed with.
Mike’s greatest love, after his family, was the outdoors. He yearned for summers where he could go camping, four-wheeling, and boating with family and friends.
His strong and loving spirit will remain with us in our hearts forever. We feel his unconditional love and see his sweet smile and tender laugh in the cherished memories we have of him. We will always remember and be forever grateful for how hard he worked to provide us with a warm, caring, safe, and comfortable home and family life. We will miss our blue-eyed angel and think of him always. While we didn’t get nearly enough time with him, we will always cherish the time we had. We love you, Dad and look forward to when we can all be together as a family again.
P.S. Cancer sucks.
