Phares “Perry” E. Weinberg
Born – Battle Creek, MI on February 13, 1946
Deceased- Seminole, FL on March 26, 2022
Perry passed in his winter home in Seminole, FL peacefully surrounded by his family. He fought a long battle of cancer with great strength.
He was raised in Battle Creek, MI by his loving, adoptive parents, Noel Foster, and Flossie Mae (Henion) Weinberg and an extra-special Grandpa called “Pa”.
As a small fun-loving boy, Perry was known as the ringleader always finding new adventures. He graduated from BCCHS in 1964 and became a member of the BCCHS reunion committee. He was accepted into an apprenticeship program at Clark Equipment Company where he became a Journeyman Machinist. Perry married his High School sweetheart Cindy Wood, they were blessed with two beautiful daughters, Kim, and Keli. Their life as a family was spent with summers at the lake and memorable trips. Perry worked hard and played hard, he had many friends, lots of hobbies and especially loved his toys. In his thrill seeker years, he owned a chopper motorcycle, 2 jet ski boats and various classic vehicles including his favorite-one 1956 Chevy Nomad. He was a business owner acquiring a grocery store calling it “Weinberg’s Grocery” in Level Park. He was quite the entrepreneur, also becoming co-owner of the original “Homespun” on West Michigan Avenue.
Perry always had a love for the water, after retirement, he sailed the “Andromeda” with friends from Michigan to the Florida Keys and then as a US Coast Guard Certified Captain, his knowledge of the waterways continued him South to the US Virgin Islands and beyond. The Admiral’s joyful free spirit will forever be remembered every time someone says “Relax”.
He is survived by his daughters, Kimberly A Juarez of Battle Creek, MI., Keli S Weinberg of Seminole, FL., and a grandson, Robert G LaParl (Amy) of Nashville, MI.
Perry was cremated and his cremains will be placed to rest with his parents at Floral Lawn Memorial Gardens. There will be no formal service. “A Celebration of Perry’s Life” is planned for this summer. He will be dearly missed by his many friends and family, come, share stories, bring photos, celebrate.
We would like to express our gratitude for the many kindnesses extended to us during this difficult time.
