1942 – 2019
Woodstock – Frank Weinand, Jr, 77, passed away peacefully, surrounded by loved ones on Friday, September 20, 2019. Born in Pendel, Pennsylvania, he was the son of the late Frank Weinand, Sr. and Mary (Herner) Weinand.
Frank was a proud veteran of the United States Navy, having served during the Cuban Missile Crisis. He worked in computer programming for IBM for many years and later established a successful management consulting firm, FLW Associates, Inc serving as its president and principal owner until his retirement in 2009.
Frank was a member of the VFW Post 207 in Putnam. He was an avid sports fan and especially loved NASCAR and the New England Patriots. Frank enjoyed performing Johnny Cash karaoke at local venues. He enjoyed a lively political debate and asked that, upon his death, it be revealed that he was the anonymous author of the Woodstock Patriot, a satirical local political newsletter distributed in the late 1990s.
Frank is survived by his sons David (and wife Valerie) Weinand of NH, Gregory (and his wife Kris) Weinand of ME, his daughter; Samantha Weinand of Holland, MA; one brother, Robert Weinand of PA; four grandchildren: Jackie, Dylan, Carly and Kyle; and two great grandchildren: Finnley and William. Frank was predeceased by a son, Michael Weinand, and a sister, Terry MacBlain.
A Celebration of Frank’s Life will be held on Wednesday, September 25th from 5-7 pm at the Knights of Columbus Hall on Providence St. in Putnam. Friends are invited to come and share stories and memories. All who knew Frank know that he would want his time on this earth to be remembered fondly and in good fun.
Funeral arrangements have been entrusted to the Gilman Funeral Home and Crematory, 104 Church St., Putnam, CT. 06260. Memorial donations may be made to either the Knights of Columbus in Putnam, or VFW Post 207, also in Putnam.
