Barry C. Weitzel, 75, passed away December 21, 2020. His loving wife of 52 years Carol A. (Williams) Weitzel was by his side.

Born in West Reading, he was a son of the late Paul and Ruth (Weyandt) Weitzel.

He was a graduate of Wyomissing High School and attended Penn State University.

Barry was a U.S Army veteran serving during the Vietnam Era.

Barry was previously the Mayor of the former West Lawn Boro, PA. He also was a member and past commander of the VFW Post # 6150, Sinking Spring, PA.

Uncle Barry was a bright light in my life, always kind, smiling & joking. He accomplished many good things in his life, ie, Army, Mayor of West Lawn, good job, VFW member & commander, great cook, loving husband, uncle & brother and PSU fan!!!!! I saw him at summer family picnics. I knew he was just a phone call away. Now, when I think of him, I know his spirit is at peace & watching over us. Uncle B. will be sorely missed and fondly remembered.

To Carol: sorry for your loss. None of us are getting younger are we! I’m still alive and well and living in Mohnton. Hope you are doing well and have a better 2021 Than we all did in 2020. (Dave searfoss)

Barry was a friend, a leader to veterans, and a caring person, who will be missed. We would talk about many interesting stories at the VFW Post. His leadership and help to veterans was very productive and appreciated to me. My sincere condolences to his family.
May God Bless Barry forever, Dave Ciscon, VFW Post Chaplain, former Post Trustee when Barry was Post Commander.

Barry and I were good friends when we were younger, say late childhood through high school. He helped me get started on a paper route; he had a very large Reading Eagle route. We smoked cigarettes together in my parents' attic, and my Dad caught us, but he didn't say anything; he just chased us out! We built tree houses together, and we had a kind of "gang headquarters" in my parent's unused garage along with his neighbor, another good friend, Kenny Rose. We did all kinds of crazy, childhood stuff together. He was the manager of the high school stage crew of which I was a member. There are a few still with us who will never forget the "initiation" into our group. I think the last time I saw him was at a high school class reunion, maybe #25 in 1989. Rest in Peace, Barry. I will not forget you.
