Richard “Rick” Allen Weigand 67, Altoona, passed away October 30, 2019 at UPMC Altoona surrounded by his loving family after an extended illness. Preceded in death by his wife of 37 years, the former Vicky Horton on January 10, 2019. Rick joined the United States Marine Corp at the age of 17 and served his country during the Vietnam War. He was always involved in coaching sports while his children Amy Jo (Steve) Webster and Richard P. (Kira Hoffmann) were growing up. He enjoyed hunting, fishing, spending time with his family and friends and he was an avid sports fan. He adored his 5 grandchildren, Patryck, Ryen, Kody, Calli and Cydney. When Pappy was babysitting, you could be sure the day would be filled with fun, long walks outside, gardening, and trips to the store for the best snacks. (And of course, there was no limit on snacks). He was loved dearly and will be missed by his children, grandchildren, siblings, cousins, nephews, nieces, in-laws, and friends. A service will be held at Calvary Cemetery Mausoleum on Monday November 4, 2019 at 1:00 PM. He often voiced that he felt a close kinship when he was in the company of fellow veterans. Also, during the long fight for his life that started with kidney disease, he would often reflect on his time at dialysis and state that he felt bad for the others around him, and that there were so many people worse off than he was. Thus, the family suggests contributions be made in Rick’s memory be made to: Semper Fi Fund, 825 College Blvd, Suite 102, PMB 609, Oceanside, CA 92057. Questions:info@semperfifund.org.

So sorry to hear the sad news of losing a great friend in Rick. A lot of my teenage years were spent hanging out and playing sports constantly with Rick.I can just imagine his joy of being a great father and grandfather.
