Phillip Weiss Obituary

Phillip L. Weiss, 68, of LeRoy, MN, passed on Tuesday, January 17, 2023 surrounded by his family at home.

Born the 3rd of 12 children on July 30, 1954 in Port Washington, WI. He was the son of Albert and Mildred (Demerath) Weiss. They moved to Juneau, WI and farmed there. Phil graduated high school at Dodgeland High in Juneau, WI in 1973. He always wanted to farm like his father, but his parents told him to go on to school for something in case farming didn’t happen. Phil went on to get his Associate Degree as a certified agricultural mechanic at Moraine Park Technical Institute in Beaver Dam, WI and graduated in 1975.

Phil met Barbara N. Garczynski at a friend’s wedding. Phil, 19, and Barb, 16, knew it would be forever. In November of 1978, they started their farm in Markesan, WI with their 3 sons; Jacob, Jason and Jonathan. The family grew with 5 grandchildren; Moriah, Joshua, Makayla, Jeremiah and Jude. They expanded their farm with Jacob and Michelle and became an LLC in 2000. With the desire to expand, they moved to LeRoy, MN in May of 2006.

Phil often said he never worked a day in his life because he enjoyed farming. With Phil’s passing, his hope is that the farm will continue, but knowing the dairy industry, it may be hard to survive.

Phil is survived by his wife Barb, sons Jacob (Michelle Renner) of Kingston, WI and Jason, 5 grandchildren, 5 sisters and 6 brothers; Barbara, Marty (Sue) and Joseph all of Juneau, WI, Thomas (Nancy) of Cadott, WI, Robert (Tammy) of Slinger, WI, Kenneth (Deb) of Fond du Lac, WI, Mary Nehmer of Denmark, WI, Jane (Joseph) of Fargo, ND, Joan (Tim) of Fond du Lac, WI, Jennifer Lietzau (Rick) of Littleton, CO, Edward (Val) of Juneau, WI, nieces, nephews, aunts and uncles.

He was preceded in death by his son Jonathan and his parents.

A Funeral Mass will be held at 1:00 p.m. on Saturday, January 21, 2023 at St. Ignatius Catholic Church in Spring Valley, MN with Father Marreddy Pothireddy officiating. Burial will be held at Bethlehem Cemetery. Visitation will be held at St. Ignatius from 4-7 p.m. on Friday, January 20th and will continue from 12-1 p.m. at the church on Saturday.
