Major Raymond Weinberg (Retired) of Huntsville, AL, 88, passed away April 26, 2018. He is survived by his wife, Kathleen Jeanette Weinberg and his three children, Paul C. Weinberg, Nina Lawles and her husband Bobby, and Allan J. Weinberg and his wife Lois Anne, 18 grandchildren and 30 great-grandchildren.

Raymond was born in Los Angeles, CA and was drafted into the Army in 1951.  Raymond was stationed at several military bases throughout his military career i.e. Ft. Ord, CA; Ft. Bliss, TX; Vicenza, Italy; Ft. Sill, OK; Babenhausen-Ober-Amergau, Germany; Frankfurt, Germany; Ft. Monmouth, NJ; Ft. Gordon, GA;  as well as serving during the Korean and Vietnam conflict.  He also attended all missile firings at White Sands NM and supported the setup of the sub-orbital flight of Astronauts Cmdr. Shepard and Glenn.  After more than 20 years of military service, he retired from the Army at Redstone Arsenal.

Upon entering civilian life, he was hired as a technical representative by an Atlanta company that serviced computers and printers.  Later he became Director of Maintenance for Huntsville City Schools.  He fully retired in 1988.

Ray’s passion for bowling led him to become a certified coach for Youth Bowling in Huntsville.  He established the bowling venue in the Alabama State Games known as The Sports Festival.  He was inducted into the Huntsville Bowling Association Hall of Fame and subsequently into the Alabama State Bowling Association Hall of Fame.  Ray and his beautiful wife enjoyed trailering, playing cards and games (he learned to cheat quite well and invented “Weinberg Rules”), and spending time with family.

Visitation will be held Friday May 4, 2018 from 6:00 – 8:00 pm at Hazel Green Funeral Home.  Funeral services will be held Saturday May 5, 2018 at 11:00 am at the funeral home with Rev. Dr. Robert B. Hurst and Col. Henry B. Miller (Ret) officiating.  Burial will be with full Military Honors at Concord Cemetery in New Market, AL.

Hazel Green Funeral Home is honored to serve the family.
