August 3, 1936 – April 6, 2019
Herbert Weise, 82, died Saturday, April 6, 2019 at his home in Apison Tennessee following a nine month battle with bone cancer.
He leaves his wife of 32 years, Janet (Tuvo) Weise; his daughters Ruby Stover, Nancy Holczer, Hillary Weise; son Adam Wahlen; 6 grandchildren and 6 great-grandchildren. He was preceded in death by his son Herbert Victor Weise and his parents Herman and Erna (Doerner) Weise.
Born in Bendorf on the Rhine River, Germany, he and his parents immigrated to the United States on his 19th birthday. It was a proud day when he became a citizen of the United States.
He was a very creative man with many interests. He loved working with wood, building large pieces of furniture and tiny memory boxes among other items. He also enjoyed working with fabric and had a passion for making teddy bears which grace the homes of many. Quilts which he lovingly made were donated to children at local hospitals. He loved welcoming people into his home and at Christmas turned it into a winter wonderland with lights and villages with his memories of past holidays in Germany for inspiration.
As per his wishes he was cremated and his family will have a private service at a later date. Special thanks to Avalon Hospice for their care and compassion which made his final days peaceful for him and his family.
