Obituary for Peter Michael Weis

Peter Michael Weis, age 61 of Oxford, passed away March 2, 2018. Peter was born September 21, 1956 in Windsor, Ontario, Canada.

Peter came to Detroit, Michigan with his parents and older sister when he was 9 months old. His first passport photo was on his mother’s lap.

He spent his childhood primarily in Royal Oak, Michigan, graduating from Kimball High School in 1974. He attended Lawrence Institute of Technology to pursue architecture and his true passion, mechanical engineering.

Peter met Donna Gazzarari in 1977 and married her on June 4, 1982. They settled in Clawson, bought their first home and had two boys, Paul Anthony in March, 1986 and Brian Everett in September, 1987.

The love of the outdoors took them to the more rural city of Oxford in 1998 where they built their first home with a gorgeous lake view, which Peter loved. With his garage and basement shops, he proceeded to finish their home with his own two hands.

Nothing dissuaded Peter from building, repairing, designing anything, whether it was a greenhouse addition, backyard deck or his beloved ’79 Trans Am.
Peter worked in the engineering field his entire career from drafting and computer design (both automotive and aircraft) to the production line at Orion Assembly. He was never comfortable in a suit and tie but most comfortable in his Levi’s, t-shirt and flannel.

He was most proud of his family, his sons Paul and Brian and the men they’ve become. He celebrated their differences and tried to teach them what was really important.
Peter was a beloved husband for 35 years to Donna, Dad to Paul and Brian, father-in-law to Julie (we finally have a daughter, he would say!) and Opa to his miracle, Miles Andrew, whom he was able to see on the day he was born in May of 2017.

Peter, Dad and Opa - We will all be ok, but we will never be the same without you.

A memorial visitation will be held on Saturday, March 10th from 10:00 am to 12:00 noon at Lynch & Sons Funeral Directors in Oxford, MI. A luncheon will immediately follow. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the charity of your choice.
