  NORTHWEST MOURNS THE LOSS OF A FOUNDING FATHER

Ed Weiss passed away Thursday December 4th, at the age of 93. He was one of the founding fathers of Northwest Little League, who Coached, and was president in 1961 and 1963 . Ed, along with his wife Minnie, where heavily involved in Northwest in it's early years. He later went on to become District 20 Administrator, where he held that position for many years. Volunteers like Ed, are far and few between, as he dedicated 42 years to NW and District 20 Little League. The Flag at Northwest now flies at half staff in honor and memorial of Ed.

 

Funeral services are at Connell Funeral Home on Broad Street in Bethlehem, Thursday December 11th at 11am . There are no calling hours.
