Allen Weigand 83 of Bellaire, Ohio died Saturday April 2, 2016 at Wheeling Hospital.

He was born December 23, 1932 in Wheeling, WV.

He attended St. John’s school in Bellaire, OH as well as St. John Viennay Prepatory Seminar in Steubenville, OH in his freshman year.

He worked for the Ogden newspaper as a printer for 23 years and was active in the local Typographical Union, serving as president as well as secretary of Local 79. He also served as secretary of the Tri-State Typographical Conference comprised of 30 locals.

He later was employed by Ohio Edison and the Burger Power Plant from which he retired as a control room operator after 22 years of service.

He was a member of St. Johns United Church of Christ, German Ridge, Powhatan Point, Ohio. He was a member of the council and sang in the choir. Allen was a veteran of the U.S. Marine Corps during the Korean War and a member of the American Legion Post 52 in Bellaire, Ohio.

One of the accomplishments that made Allen very happy was obtaining his private pilots license. He loved flying and took friends and family flying. He was preceded in death by his parents and his loving wife Joan (Isaly) Weigand as well as two brothers Earl and Wallace Weigand and a sister Jane Wood.

He is survived by his children, Lois (Richard) Harrold of Wheeling, WV and David (Sandra) Weigand of Bellaire, OH. In addition he is survived by two sisters, Corrine (Bill) Schreyer of Wheeling, WV and Nancy (Tim Coyne) of Bellaire, OH; two grandchildren Juliet (Lance) Redinger of Gibsonia, PA and Ashlina Weigand of Bellaire, OH as well as a great-granddaughter Athena Weigand of Bellaire, OH as well as many nieces and nephews who loved him dearly.

Allen and Joan were very fortunate to have traveled extensively, Europe, Spain, Greece, UK, northern Africa and the Holy Land.

Family and friends will be received at the Bauknecht-Altmeyer Funeral Homes & Crematory 441, 37th street Bellaire, OH 43906 on Tuesday April 5, 2016 from 2-4 and 7-9 pm and again on Wednesday from 10 until time of funeral service at 11 am at St. John’s United Church of Christ, German Ridge, in Powhatan Point Ohio with Rev.

My sincere condolences for your loss. AL helped train me at the Burger Plant, he was a patient man and had a very dry sense of humor (heh, heh), which I came to appreciate immensly. He had an easy going manner and didn’t get rattled much until he was showing me something and I turned around and screwed it up! Then he could really move!
Al will be greatly missed.

Condolences to the Weigand family. I had the honor of working with Al for several years at the Burger plant. There are many fond memories of whitewater rafting with Al in West Virginia, and of times he showed me around the Ohio Valley by air. Al was an intelligent, humorous, and caring man. He will be missed.
