As a young man he spent many weekends with his nieces and nephews; taking them fishing, camping, exploring the Delaware river and building in them a lifelong love of the outdoors. As the family grew his joy was spending time with his great nephews and his two grandchildren who affectionally dubbed him “Booboo Head Papa”.
He is survived by his son and daughter in law Carl and Lori Ann Weiss, two grandchildren Gregory and Abigail, his uncle Jimmy, nieces Dorothy Hill and Amanda Pastor, Tammy (Laureen) Scuorzo and nephews Francis Pastor, Charlie Weiss, Georgie Weiss as well as many other family and friends.

George was my friend and manager at Macys Rt1 Furniture store. He was one of the kindest and generous
people I ever met. My son Jonathan enjoyed working with him as well.George was a great manager and people person.No matter how tough a situation was George always showed how he could solve a problem, I learned much from him. We always enjoyed having a bite to eat with our group, enjoying conversation and laughter.
When he retired he treated the whole group to a wonderful event at the local italian restaurant where we worked, had so much fun.George a true classic gentleman back from the original Bambergers days where i started back in 1985.
May the Good Lord bless George Weiss forever, he will be sorely missed. Rest in Peace George, from your good ol buddies John Uzarski and my son Jonathan Uzarski.

George’s room was next to my room for 20 Months at Ft. Hancock and we became best of friends. After our discharge from the MP Copse we shared a love for the out-of-doors on our many fish and camping trips especially on the Delaware River. In New Jersey, we fished Swartswood Lake, Lake Owassa, Lake Ocquittunk, Greenwood Lake and Wawayanda Lake. In Maine, we fished Tunk lake and fished and camped on the West Branch Narraguagus River. While fishing on Sandy Hook Bay we almost lost it all in a sudden thunder storm. George was cool. He handed me a cooler lid to shield my eyes from hail while I steered, he then bailed water furiously saving the day. George was a big part of my life and I will miss him like a brother.

George was an honorable man who loved family. He was always there for family events, whether to provide laughter or comfort. He was present and supportive. I love and will miss George. The entire Carmichael family loves him and will miss him so. Our family was better for having him as a member.
