Obituary of Eric Weiler

Weiler: Eric Bernard


At the West Parry Sound Health Centre on Thursday, July 26th at age 74.  Beloved husband of Donna Marie Weiler (nee Foreman).  Loving father of Scott (Julia) and Shannon (Kevin).  Loving grandfather of Nicholas, Chloe, Marlowe and Brenner.  Dear brother of Ann Schmidt (Larry), Gary (Maureen), Mike, Dan (Jodi), Mary and Donna Weiler. 

Eric graduated from the University of Western Ontario and then went on to earn a Master’s Degree in Education.  He taught English and then found his calling in the Guidance Department during his 23 years at Twin Lakes Secondary School in Orillia.  He founded a career centre and adult learning centre in Barrie, where he impacted many lives, before retiring to his house in Parry Sound.  Eric kept very active playing basketball, tennis, racket-ball, cross-country skiing, cycling, and golfing and enjoyed watching baseball and especially basketball with his grandson, Nicholas.  Eric’s favourite hobby was building anything from houses to cabins and decks and he enjoyed nothing more than relaxing with a boat ride on Lake Shebeshekong with his family and friends. 

A celebration of Eric’s life will be held at the Simcoe Funeral Home 38 James Street E. Orillia on Sunday August 5th from 1-3 pm.  Memorial donations to Childhood Cancer ( or the Pulmonary Fibrosis Association ( would be appreciated.  Messages of condolence and donations are welcome at
