Seymour Weissberger

Taylor, PA July 21, 1927 ~ April 16, 2019 Date of Service: April 19, 2019

Seymour Weissberger, 91, of Taylor, died Tuesday evening in the Regional Hospital of Scranton.

Born in Taylor, son of the late Edward and Bertha Rosenbluth Weissberger, he was a graduate of Taylor High School and served in the U.S. Army during WWII.

Seymour was a devoted son, brother, uncle, great-uncle, and great-great-uncle.  He was the owner of Leader Variety on Main Street in Taylor.  Active in local politics, he was elected to and served on the Taylor Borough Council, and for many years he never missed a council or school board meeting in Taylor, Old Forge, and Duryea.  He also regularly attended the Lower Lackawanna Valley Sewer Authority meetings.  He was the watchdog for the residents of Taylor.  An extremely honest, moral, and righteous man in all of his endeavors, he will never be forgotten. 

He was also preceded in death by his sisters, Hannah Mendelssohn, Sadye Ross, Frieda Ruzansky, Florence Berson, Lida Barr, and Rose, Esther, Doris, Mayme, and Malka Weissberger; and his brothers, Harry, Aaron, Simeon, Allen, and Jack. 

A graveside funeral service will be held Friday, April 19th at 11:30 a.m. in the Dalton Jewish Cemetery by Rabbi Dovid Saks.

Contributions may be made to the donor’s favorite charity.

A true friend and Citizen #1 of Taylor Borough, resident and business owner. I valued all of our conversations over the years, aand you were the true watchdog of the communities in lower Lackawanna County and upper Luzerne County. Your presence will be greatly missed. Rest in Peace, my friend......

There were a number of times when I was a kid that Seymour would help us neighborhood kids by opening his store on Sunday just so we could buy a baseball to play with. Nice man.

My condolences to Mr. Weissberger's family. He certainly was a significant part of the Taylor community. Many great memories of shopping for toys at his store as a child. He was a credit to his family and his town!

My condolences to the family. Seymour was a man filled with much wisdom and knowledge and I will miss our friendly debates back at his coal stove. I will also miss seeing him as a regular at our Council Meetings. Rest In Peace my friend.

Seymour was such a nice person. I would spend hours in his store near the coal stove listening to him tell stories. When their hardware store was open, if you needed something he had it and he knew exactly where it was located. My father and Seymour were always at the Old Forge Council meetings together when my Dad was living. He will be greatly missed
