Dr. George H. Weiss


Dr. George Henry Weiss (Z”L), born June 22, 1927, passed away peacefully at his home on October 11, 2023. Dr. Weiss grew up in Upper Darby, PA. He was the son of the late Philip Weiss and Bertha Weiss (Née Bruner). Dr. Weiss was a beloved Family Doctor who practiced for 52 years in East Norriton, PA. He is survived by his loving family: son Steven (Julia); his stepchildren Sherry, Ross, Scott, and Rainer; his grandchildren Julian (Molly), Naomi, Simon, Sophia and Arianna; and his great-grandchild George.

Dr. Weiss was a devoted family man. He had a beautiful relationship with his soulmate and second wife Dr. Jaqueline Shachter Weiss. They were happily married for over 38 years. 

After recovering from a severe car accident while in service with the Army in 1945 and being honorably discharged, Dr. Weiss graduated with a Bachelor’s Degree in Biology from the University of Pennsylvania. He pursued medical studies at the University of Basil Switzerland where he learned German. He received his Medical Doctorate from the University of Munich, Germany in May, 1958.  

After Dr. Weiss returned to the US, he passed the boards and interned at Montgomery Hospital in 1958. He opened a medical practice in East Norriton in 1960 and served his community for 52 years. He was merrily greeted on the street by his patients long after he retired.

He was an avid tennis player and one of the original founding members of Frog Hollow Tennis Club in Lansdale, PA. In the winter, he enjoyed skiing in the Poconos and out west with his extended family.  He was a supportive member of Rotary International for over 34 years.

Dr. Weiss loved classical music and was a regular attendee of the Philadelphia Orchestra. His favorites were Mozart and Brahms. 

Dr. Weiss believed in the importance of connecting with people and always saw the good in others. He had a great sense of humor. He had lengthy conversations about the news and ended them by saying “we’ve solved all the world’s problems.” He donated to many important causes including Congregation Or’Ami in Lafayette Hill. He inspired everyone he met. Dr. George Weiss truly lived as a shining example of what it means to be human. He touched many lives and was loved by everyone who knew him.
