Dr. Robert N. WeinbergerBellaire, TX and formerly of Scranton, PA April 25, 1950 ~ June 8, 2016 Date of Service: June 10, 2016
Known to his friends as “Bob”, to his family as “Bobby”, to his patients as “Dr. Bob”, and to his office staff as “Weinberger”, Dr. Robert N. Weinberger, formerly of Scranton, Pennsylvania, passed away peacefully in the evening on Tuesday, June 7, 2016, in Houston, Texas, with his family by his side.
Born in Scranton, son of the late Harold “Heshy” and Roslyn Gildar Weinberger, Dr. Weinberger practiced as a clinical psychologist for over 40 years in the Greater Houston Area. He completed his residency at the University of Texas Medical School in Galveston and received his doctorate from Oklahoma State University in 1977. His devotion and passion to help others led him to establish his own practice, The Weinberger Clinic, PLLC, in 2015. He also established his presence as an amazing public speaker and touched audiences far beyond the scope of Houston. He truly knew how to engage audiences, capture their undivided attention, and make them laugh.
Throughout his career, Dr. Weinberger was a prevalent member of his community. His care was compassionate yet straightforward and always included elements of his unique sense of humor. Over the years, Dr. Weinberger developed a particular interest in treating children, adolescents, and young adults. He carried a reputation among these patients as the “66-year-old teenager”. In his work with this community, he touched the lives of many parents, grandparents, clergy, counselors, and school administrators.
Dr. Weinberger had a love of travel and exploration. He founded HIS Tours, LLC, a program that offered opportunities for kids to study abroad and religious congregations to travel to the Holy Land of Israel.
Personally, Dr. Weinberger was as passionate about his family as he was his work. Always popping-in unexpectedly to visit family members and attend functions was his signature trait. He also made it a priority to travel to pay respects to his parents and other family members who had passed away. He was devoted to his family. He was a loving husband, a caring sibling, a compassionate father and father-in-law, an attentive uncle, an interested godfather, and most recently, a proud grandfather. He is survived by Lennie, his loving wife of 40 years; his three beloved children and daughter-in-law – son, Evan and wife, Diane; daughters, Lee and Kate; and, his grandson, and newest joy in his life, Samuel. Also surviving are his brothers, Atty. Jerry Weinberger, Steven Weinberger, Dr. Richard Weinberger; and his sister Nancy Ben-Dov; as well as nieces and nephews.
Services will be held to honor and remember Dr. Weinberger on Friday, June 10, 2016, at 10:00 am at Carlucci-Golden-DeSantis Funeral Home, Inc., 318 E. Drinker Street, Dunmore, Pennsylvania.
