Robert M. Wiesner, 86, of George Street, St. Marys, passed away peacefully at his home on Thursday, November 10, 2022, following a brief illness.
He was born on February 5, 1936 in St. Marys, PA, a son of the late Emerson and Joan Frey Wiesner.
Bob was a member of St. Marys Church and had worked as a clerk at his family's grocery store on George Street for many years. He liked to listen and communicate on Ham Radio with Peking China, and also enjoyed listening to the radio at home. He enjoyed a quiet evening studying astronomy, always enjoying the moon and stars. Bob was a simple man who took solace in spending time at his home and watching re-runs of Gunsmoke and Raw Hide. He could often be found playing his guitar and smoking his pipe, and will be fondly remembered as the "Bullshitter of George Street".
He is survived by several dear friends; Mary Thorwart and her husband Ed of Ridgway, Gloria Lodes of St. Marys, and his longtime friend and caregiver; Philomena Sonpon of Philadelphia.
In addition to his parents, Robert was preceded in death by a sister in infancy.
