Mark and I first met back in the early 80s while working at WPAFB in engineering. He was such a friendly guy who loved to laugh. He was always fun to work with. Recently, he had just joined the Engrg lunch bunch and enjoyed seeing others he had worked with. It was always good to see him. My condolences to the family.

We extend sincere condolences to Roberta and family. It’s hard to accept the loss of Mark after decades of close friendship. We remember with great affection all that we shared, going on cruises, out to dinners , lunches, bike rides, walks and just visiting. Mark was a man of many talents who could build, install or fix just about anything; and offered his help to friends and family on countless occasions. He will be greatly missed.

Much love to the entire Weitz family. We all have great memories having grown up in the same close knit community in Dayton, and my memories of the Weitzes go way, way back, as far as I can remember. So we all feel this loss. Sending hugs and strength to everyone.

Hi Weitz Family... What a loss for all of us. My biggest impression is that "Mark did things right". Well thought out, well planned and always focused on the long term and on family. You are all a beautiful part of that legacy. It was a great pleasure to see him thrive in retirement. I particularly cherish and enjoy the planning and stories of terrific cruises to warm and sunny places; a lifestyle he worked hard to create for himself and for you, Roberta. I wish you every comfort possible. I know he is proud of every one of you.
