Fred J. Weis, Jr.

October 5, 1941 — September 2, 2022

Fred J. Weis Jr., October 5, 1941 – September 2, 2022

Fred Weis was born to Fred and Agnes Weis on October 5, 1941 and raised in the Bronx, New York, the third of six boys.  After serving in the U.S. Army and attending college at Westchester Community College and Bradley University, he followed in the footsteps of Fred, Sr., a Big Apple iron worker and builder, to the commercial construction industry.

When not engineering and managing the construction of skyscrapers, low-rise offices, churches, courthouses, schools, and airports from Chicago to Houston, Austin, Norfolk, Washington, and Baltimore, he could usually be found on the fairways and greens enjoying a round of golf with family members or friends. For many years he was part of a group that golfed twice weekly where, even at age 80, he was affectionately known as the spring chicken of the group.

Fred always exuded zest for life—quick with a joke, big with a smile, generous with a helping hand, and never too far from his clubs.

Fred perennially had family at the center of his life, was very active in his church, and always found time to volunteer, serve, and help others. Even in retirement, the desire to build both friendships and structures ran deep. He served as President of his church’s Parish Council and as a Eucharistic Minister for many years. He spearheaded numerous service projects across Anne Arundel County, most notably building ramps for the disabled and financially needy and leading his church’s Rebuilding Together project to renovate homes for the elderly. He was indeed The Ramp Man, putting his time and treasure into aiding others.  While not building, travel also became a great joy later in life.

Fred’s first wife of 26 years, Maureen, preceded him in passing. His wife Carole has been by his side for the last 27 years. Fred was a loving and devoted husband to two wonderful women, a true father and fatherly figure to both families, and a doting “Pop” to ten grandchildren.  Their combined families include Susan, Kerry, Rachel,and Evan Stout of Carrollton, TX; Tom, Ryan, Jason, and Nathan Weis of Winter Springs, FL; Sharon, Gary, Daniel, Benjamin, and Lilian Cartwright of Fairfax, VA; and Trish, Olivia, and Natalie Lomonosov of Odenton, MD. Fred is survived by his loving brothers Richard (Mary), John (Kathy), James (Camille), and Raymond (Susan), dear nieces and nephews, and friends. His brother Robert (Terry) preceded him in passing.

The family will be receiving friends on Wednesday, September 7 from 5:00 – 7:00 PM at Beall Funeral Home, 6512 Crain Highway, Bowie, MD. A Mass in celebration of Fred’s life will be held at Our Lady of the Fields Roman Catholic Church, 1070 Cecil Avenue, Millersville, MD on Thursday, September 8 at 11:00 AM.

In lieu of flowers, donations can be made to the Johns Hopkins Sidney Kimmel Comprehensive Cancer Center - https://www.hopkinsmedicine.org/kimmel_cancer_center/make_a_gift.html.

Always a faithful servant to the Lord, while Fred will be dearly missed, his lasting legacy of selfless devotion to others will carry on forever.
