Obituary

Jeffrey A. Weiss, 57, of Montgomery IL (formerly of Itasca, IL), entered eternity to be with the Lord on Wednesday, October 24, 2018, surrounded by his family. Though he left this world suddenly, after a brief but spirited fight against cancer, his family rejoices that he is at rest with Jesus. Jeff was a loving husband, father, son, grandfather, brother, uncle, teacher and friend. His philosophy in life was to put God first in all things, love his family, and work hard. This philosophy encompassed every aspect of Jeff's life and he spent his last weeks working to make life easier for his wife and family.

His life and home were filled with music. Jeff was a talented musician, with a passion for music that he instilled in his daughters and shared with his wife. He played the drums and the guitar for First Presbyterian Church for many years, and before that he spent many years gigging in the band The Excuses and more recently the Leah Pearl Band. He also taught drums at the Neighborhood Arts Center and his legacy lives on through the students he taught.

Jeff spent his life taking care of others. He touched countless lives with his easy charm and wicked sense of humor. His life was full and well lived, from his early days running with the Itasca boys, to his last few weeks spent surrounded by loved ones. Though he was a hard worker, there were few things in life he enjoyed more than sitting on the beach in Ludington, MI, or around any campfire…the bigger the better, of course.

Jeff leaves behind his loving wife of 33 years, Mindy; three daughters, Leah (Josh) Vargo, Bridgette (Justin) Wright, and Jenni (James) Lara; seven grandchildren; his mother, Janice Gohlke; father, Morey Weiss; two sisters, Bonnie Weiss and Brenda (Robert) Owens, and brother, Morey D. (Bobbi) Weiss.

A memorial visitation will be held on Saturday, November 17, 2018 from 9 AM until the time of the memorial service 12 PM at First Presbyterian Church, 325 East Downer Pl., Aurora, IL 60506.
