Stan Weiss, pharmacist and co-owner of the Sag Harbor Pharmacy, died November 15, 2012 after a sudden illness. He lived in East Hampton.
Born September 14, 1942, Mr. Weiss grew up in Brooklyn, N.Y., and went to Lafayette High School. He enrolled in the Brooklyn College of Pharmacy where he became good friends with fellow student Barry Marcus. After graduating in 1965, the two went their separate ways but remained in touch. After owning other pharmacies on Long Island, Mr. Weiss joined with Mr. Marcus in 2001 when the Sag Harbor Pharmacy became available for purchase.
“His family meant the world to him, like the rest of us,” Susan Marcus, wife of Barry Marcus, said of Weiss. “He loved the store, he loved the interaction with the people and he had a great life.”
A devoted husband, father and grandfather, Weiss is survived by his wife Myrna, twin daughters Lisa (John) Bash and Stacy (Ken) Erdheim, and grandchildren Jesse Bash, Mariel Erdheim and Jeremy Erdheim.
Services were held November 25 at Gutterman’s Chapel, Melville. Memorial donations can be made to the Jewish Center of the Hamptons, 44 Woods Lane, East Hampton. Condolences can be sent to the Sag Harbor Pharmacy, PO Box 1050, Sag Harbor, NY 11963.
