In Loving Memory of Joseph Conrad Weismuller

February 17, 1932 – January 13, 2024

It is with profound sadness that we announce the passing of Joseph Conrad Weismuller, a beloved husband, father, grandfather, great-grandfather and great great-grandfather. Joseph departed this world on January 13, 2024, surrounded by his family, leaving behind a legacy of love, laughter, and cherished memories.

Born in Cincinnati, Ohio on February 17, 1932, Joseph embarked on a life filled with adventure and purpose. After completing a tour in the Army, Joseph met Shirley Hergert on a blind date New Years Eve 1954 and married March 3, 1956. And after completing his education, he pursued a career as a chemist, dedicating himself to the industrial field at Procter and Gamble. His expertise and passion for chemistry were evident in the innovative work he contributed to over the years.

Joseph possessed a spirit of curiosity and creativity that extended beyond his professional life. He had a deep love for building model airplanes, spending hours meticulously crafting and perfecting each detail. These models not only showcased his skill but also his patience and craftsmanship.

Travel played a significant role in Joseph’s life. During his time in the United States Army, he was stationed in Germany and had the opportunity to explore various parts of Europe. After retirement, Joseph and Shirley enjoyed several trips to Europe as well as road trips throughout the country, allowing them to experience the diverse landscapes and hidden gems of the United States. One of his favorite destinations was Siesta Key, where he spent countless joyous moments with his family, taking many long walks on the beach watching the waves of the ocean and the beautiful sunsets.

Every year, Joseph found solace in the beauty of Gatlinburg, Tennessee. It was a place that held a special place in his heart, as it was where he and his beloved spouse, Shirley, had their honeymoon. The memories they created there became cherished traditions, creating a lifetime of moments that will forever live on in the hearts of his loved ones.

Family was at the center of Joseph’s world. He deeply loved Shirley, his wife of nearly 68 years. He nurtured deep bonds with his children, Diane, Joseph, Kimberley, and Tamara, instilling within them the values of love, compassion, and resilience. His grandchildren, Brandon, Edward, Amberley, Daryn, Dylyn; great-grandchildren, Andreona, Sophia, Giada, Ava, Aspyn, Aaron, Adalyn, and great great-grandchild Aurora were the light of his life. Joseph’s love extended beyond blood ties, fostering connections with extended family and friends who were enriched by his presence.

In his moments of leisure, Joseph found joy in gardening, spending hours tending to and creating beauty in his yard. He enjoyed staying physically active with hiking in Gatlinburg and playing racquetball, a sport that kept him energized and connected with friends.

As a young man, Joseph was involved in various clubs and organizations. He took part in the Boy Scouts, the Physics Club, and the Rifle Club, where he honed skills that would shape him into the admirable man he became. Additionally, Joseph played baseball for Procter and Gamble in the 1950s, showcasing his talent on the field.

A true aficionado of science fiction, Joseph delighted in watching movies that transported him to distant galaxies and imagined futures. The first Star Wars movie held a special place in his heart, igniting his imagination and sparking conversations with friends and loved ones.

Joseph’s love for adventure led him to one of his favorite places on Earth, Disney World. He and his family made annual trips to this magical realm, where they created unforgettable memories and experienced the thrill of attractions like Space Mountain. Joseph’s childlike wonder and joy were evident in every visit, leaving an indelible imprint on the hearts of those who shared in those magical moments.

Joseph Conrad Weismuller will forever be remembered for his warm smile, unwavering love, and vibrant spirit. His presence illuminated the lives of those fortunate enough to have known him, and his legacy will continue to shine brightly through the generations. He will be deeply missed.
