Douglas Owen Weidman

June 3, 1946March 18, 2020

Douglas O. Weidman, 73 years, of Glencoe, IL passed away on March 18, 2020 at his home, following an extended illness. He was born June 3, 1946, in Chicago, IL, the son of Robert and Virginia, nee Quillen, Weidman. He was married to Judith, nee Holzman, Weidman, who survives him. They were married February 8, 1970 in Chicago, IL.

Douglas was a man of integrity, truly one of a kind; he always did the right thing even when nobody was watching. He operated his dental practice for over 25 years, creating a network of loyal clients who became great friends. When he wasn't practicing dentistry, he was busy being a hero to his wife and three sons. He loved tennis, cycling, kayaking, traveling, and going on adventures with his boys. His fun loving ways, gentle nature, sharp wit, big smile, and bright blue eyes will be terribly missed by everyone that was blessed and fortunate enough to know him.

Also surviving are his three sons, Matthew (Melissa), Bradley (Amanda Angell), and Gregory; brothers-in-law William Hamilton and Todd (Terry) Holzman; beloved grandchildren, Alexander and Claire, cousins, nieces, along with other relatives and friends.

He was preceded in death by his sister, Arlene Hamilton.

Services will be held privately on Sunday, March 22nd, with Rabbi Steven Lowenstein, officiating. A public memorial service will be held at a later date.

In lieu of customary remembrances, the family requests with gratitude that memorial contributions be directed to: Parkinson’s Foundation, 200 SE 1st Street, Ste 800, Miami, FL 33131(parkinsons.org) or another charity of your choice.

I had the please of meeting Douglas as a student in my chair yoga class at aThe Lustbader Fitness Center in Northbrook. His warmth and determination were palpable from the moment he walked into class. He was always outwardly positive despite what seemed like his frustration at his physical limitations. Sending heartfelt condolences.

Dear Judy,
My family and yours were very close for a long time. We shared vacations in nearby areas, which I treasure to this day.
When you were born, I was away at summer camp. My disappointment at not being available in person to receive the joyous news was dissipated when I came home to see your father holding you up high, and singing, "Dance ballerina, dance!"

Please accept my heartfelt condolences for the passing away of your husband, Douglas. I am so sorry. I am not surprised that he was a unique and compassionate person, as you and your family were and are especially wonderful, as well.
My husband, Jerry, sends his regrets to you and your family, also.

Doug and I spent quite a few hours together working on karate as a help for his Parkinson's. He was always upbeat, funny and humble as we experimented with different drills. I will miss him a lot, and feel honored to have known him. Condolences to Judy and his entire family.
