Obituary for Robert M. Weikel

April 28, 1960 - July 27, 2017
North Coventry, Pennsylvania | Age 57


Robert M. Weikel of North Coventry, and formerly of Norristown, passed peacefully on Thursday July 27, with his loving family by his side. He was 57 years old. Born April 28, 1960 in Norristown, he was the son of the late Morris and Esther (nee Neith) Weikel. He was the beloved husband and soul mate of Carmella (nee Trecroce) Weikel, with whom he shared 37 years of marriage.

Bob was a graduate of Norristown High School Class of 1979. He dedicated 35 years of his life at the State Correctional Institution at Graterford Prison where he was known as "the Commander". At work, Bob was respected by all as a man of integrity, but his closest friends also knew him as a prankster.

When he was not at work, Bob loved nothing more than spending time with his family. "Bob Bob" enjoyed spending his weekends watching his grandchildren swim, horsing around with his sons, and cooking meals with his beloved wife. Bob's favorite foods included crab legs, turkey burgers cooked well done, kale salad, and large bowls of ice cream. Over the years, Bob enjoyed many hobbies especially woodworking, playing basketball, and snorkeling in Bermuda – his favorite vacation destination.

Whether he knew it or not, Bob was a role model to many. Generous, patient and loving in his marriage, Bob exemplified the role of husband. As a Dad, his wisdom, honesty, and listening ear will be greatly missed.

Bob is survived by his two sons; Robert (Tara) Weikel and Ryan Weikel, five grandchildren; Giavanna, Mia, Jared, Logan, and Cora, nieces; Jennifer (Chip) McKenna and their son Crew, and Kim (Mark) Smondrowski and their daughter Emma, brothers; Ken and Mike Weikel and sister Ann Jacob, and many other extended family members and friends.

Relatives and friends are invited to share in Bob's Life Celebration on Saturday August 12, at 2 PM at Boyd-Horrox-Givnish of East Norriton, 200 West Germantown Pike, 610-277-7000.
