It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Viktor Georg Weigl, at his residence in Stittsville, November 23, 2022, at the age of 81.
Born in Gottingen, Germany, on November 2, 1941, he was the son of late Georg and Randi (Pedersen) Weigl, brother to late Else Weigl and spouse of the late Claudette Raymond. He is survived by his spouse Wilda Audet and his brother Rolf (Helen) Weigl. In true Viking fashion he conquered the hearts and minds of many people spanning the globe from Europe to South America and here at home from coast to coast.
Avid runner, he never stopped running and sharing his love of running, even after achieving his goal of running the Boston Marathon in 1982. His Florida friends also discovered his subdued competitive nature on the Bocce court. He could also be found giving words of encouragement on any given day from the comfort of his couch to the many professional clowns that played soccer and hockey. He also enjoyed spending time teaching the finer points of chess and checkers to his grandchildren which was usually followed by a walk to the local park.
For those who wish, in lieu of flowers, donations may be made, in Viktor’s memory to a charity of their choice.
Family and friends are invited to the Garden Chapel of Tubman Funeral Homes, 3440 Richmond Road (between Bayshore and Baseline Rd.) at 2:00 pm on Friday Dec 2nd for a memorial service.
