Thomas Stephen Weis, 92, of North East, PA went home to be with his Lord on August 30, 2020. Born and raised in Pittsburgh, he was the son of Polish immigrants, Stephen and Cecilia (Neski) Weis. Mr. Weis was a veteran of the US Navy, a beloved Boy Scout leader and church volunteer who spent thirty-six years with US Steel. Upon retirement, he and his wife, Rita, moved to Townville, PA, where they built a home on forty-five acres. He attended Lyona Bible Church and was active in the Townville Fire/EMS, serving as an ambulance driver and later as president. Mr. Weis was known to all as a kind, generous, humble man whose eyes lit up when meeting others. He genuinely loved his fellow man.

Mr. Weis was preceded in death by Rita, his beloved wife of forty years, and grandson Matthew Weis. He is survived by his wife, Virginia, his children Timothy Weis (Trish), Catherine Reardon (Bill), Thomas Weis, Jr; stepsons Joe, Jason and Jeff Bradley; seven grandchildren and six great grandchildren.

I thought a lot of Tom Weis. There were great times camping and canoeing down the Allegheny River. We played hard, worked hard, and learned a lot. He helped guide me in earning my Eagle Scout rank. Tom was a good leader.

Tom Weis was one of the finest human beings I have known and I am in my mid-seventies. He was a stellar example of truly living the Scout Law before, during and after serving as Scoutmaster of Troop 216. He was "trustworthy, loyal, helpful, friendly, courteous, kind, obedient, cheerful, thrifty, brave, clean and reverent." TRULY. He inspired about 10 young men to persevere and earn the rank of Eagle Scout in a small troop that had never produced an Eagle Scout. More importantly, he inspired many to try to live up to his example in conducting their lives. After I graduated from college and began my career he convinced me one time to give up nearly all my annual vacation to help him take scouts on a 150 mile canoe trip down the river. He worked long hours in his career and still gave up evenings and weekends to be a great ScoutMaster. Our respect and appreciation for him led us to initiate reunions with him to show our lifelong gratitude. He will be greatly missed, but we will try to make the world a better place just as he taught us.

With eternal respect,
Glenn Thor

He was a quiet guy, but a force of nature. Remember being taken on a camping trip every month for years. Always had something going on. RAIN OR SHINE or SNOW....we seemed to always go.
LOL>..camping was bread bag waterproofing (not reall effective, canvas tents with shower curtain ground clothes and no floors. All the stuff I do now in my life, rock climb, whitewater raft guide, whitewater kayak, canoe, backpack, dutch oven cooking, paying bills, leading a trip, all goes back to this guy.
He was one of my Dad's best friends in Overbrook, groing up and through high school. WHitey Malingowski, Tom Weis, Byron Williams, ....Jerry had nothing but fond memories of raiding tomatoe gardens, running through Overbrook and Carrick.
The world is a better place because of Tom Weis.

Mr. Weis was an amazing mentor to me in so many ways in his role as ScoutMaster. I never liked getting up early, but I did not mind to hear sermons on Sunday on camping trips. They really made me see God in nature. I wish there were a lot more Mr. Weis's in the world. My condolences go out to Tim and Cathy, and Tom, my good freind growing up.
