Nov. 12, 1913 - Sept. 7, 2010
Henry C. Weimer, born Nov. 12, 1913, left this life on Sept. 7, 2010, to join his wife, Sally, in Heaven. Hank was a devoted husband and a loving and fun father to Mark (wife Pam) and Kent (wife Stacey, deceased), as well as an adoring and indulgent grandfather to Margaret.
Hank lived a long life that was full of adventures, from his World War II Navy involvement in both the Atlantic and Pacific theatres of battle, to hunting, fishing, boating and having fun with family and friends. Hank enjoyed horses, raised and showed dogs, was an amateur mycologist, historian and naturalist. He left his doors open to everyone, and, when his sons were younger, was that guy that all the neighborhood kids loved - and they still do. Henry will always be remembered for the many "adventures" he led with Mark, Kent and their friends.
Living his entire life in Winona, he had a successful 42-year career with Northwestern Mutual Life Insurance Co., but was probably even better known for his involvement in the Exchange Club, the YMCA, including Indian Guide Longhouse Chief, and as a loving friend and family member who was always willing to lend a hand and always made everyone's life a little brighter with his offbeat sense of humor, his unusual turn of a phrase and his love of life. And, who can forget the famous Weimer pickles. Corlyn Wolverton, Hank's baby sister is the sole survivor of that generation of Weimer's.
A memorial service will be at St. Martin's Lutheran Church, Winona, Saturday, Oct. 2, at 11 a.m. with a celebration of Henry's life to follow at the VFW hall. A private burial service for both Henry and Sally will take place at Woodlawn Cemetery, Winona.
