Weiss, Robert C.

Robert C. Weiss, a 19-year resident of Avon, Connecticut, passed away on the morning of Wednesday, February 20th following a brief but hard-fought battle with Cancer.
Born on June 10, 1963, Bob was raised in Simsbury, Connecticut by a village of loving family members who, in addition to his mother and father, included his six siblings.
After graduating from Simsbury High School in 1981 and the Technical Career Institute in 1988 he founded his own IT solutions company, but later joined Aetna Health Insurance in a similar role, leading the development of the company’s ever-shifting technology infrastructure for 25 years.
Up until his last moments, at the age of 55, Bob remained a chatty and gregarious member of the community, always interested in local happenings. During his free time, he enjoyed rooting for the Red Sox, the St. Louis Rams, and the Syracuse University Orangemen, after his son, Zachary, chose to attend the university to complete his undergraduate studies from 2010 to 2014. He could also rarely be found without the family’s Labradoodle, Max, by his side.
Bob will be dearly missed by his wife, MaryAnn Zuk Weiss; son, Zachary Weiss; brother-in-law Phil Gelineau; and siblings James Weiss, Patricia Degon, Barbara Leveski, William Weiss, and Kenneth Weiss. He joins his sister, Linda Weiss Gelineau, and parents Eleanor W. Weiss and Sumner B. Weiss in heaven.
In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations to be made to Dog Star Rescue and Our Companions Animal Rescue & Sanctuary. Funeral services will be held privately.

    MaryAnn, Zach, Kenny(cuz) and the extended Weiss Family,

    I am so sad to hear this news and my sincere condolences to you all for your loss of such a great person. Fond memories of us hanging out at High School, meeting up at parties and jamming out to the blues, Dead and numerous rock and roll bands. Will never forget Bob and I playing along to music we loved. His warm personality and infectious smile will always be with my memories of living in Simsbury. Please know you all are in my prayers and know that Bob was loved by all. Rest in peace brother Bob – your light will shine forever.

    MaryAnn, Zach, I worked with Bob a long time at Aetna although less in recent years. He was always optimistic, generous with his knowledge, and people liked being around him. I became a Red Sox fan by marriage and learned by watching Bob how to endure the tough years! Our prayers of comfort an peace go out to you both. nancy

    Maryann and Zach,
    I consider myself lucky to have Bob as a lifelong friend that I shared so many great times and laughs with since we were kids. I will miss him terribly as we all will, but have comfort thinking back at all the special times that make me laugh out loud even now. The world is a little less fun without Bob’s contagious laugh and warm heart. I am so sorry for your tremendous loss.
    Love, Pete, Kim, Sydney & Samantha

    Dear Family and Friends of Bob,
    so sad to hear of his passing. SHS class of 81 is grieving. Bobby was always great to see and have at a party. He would often bring his guitar and we would all sing Dead tunes and have a great time. More recently would run into at re union parties or around town. Always seemed happy and had a nice smile. Will be missed.
