Weidinger, Herbert Henry

“If your actions inspire others to dream more, learn more, do more and become more, you are a leader.”     John Quincy Adams

Herbert Henry Weidinger, 80, of Carrollton, TX, passed away on Monday, February 20, 2017. Herb was born in Chicago, IL to German immigrant parents, Andrew and Emma (Schroeder) Weidinger on June 9, 1936.  Herb married his college sweetheart, Beverly Ann Conlon on February 9, 1957.  Herb and Bev were fortunate to celebrate their 60th wedding anniversary before Herb’s passing.

Herb graduated from Loras College in Dubuque, Iowa and later earned Master’s Degrees from both SMU and UTD in Dallas, TX. Herb worked as a credit manager for several companies including Halliburton and Otis Engineering.  He retired from the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation as an Environmental Specialist.

Herb was devoted to God, family and his community. Herb served 10 years on the Farmers Branch City Council, and another 10 years on the Carrollton City Council.  One of his proudest moments was meeting the Queen of England as a representative of the City of Farmers Branch in the Sister City Program.  Herb was also instrumental in the creation of the historical park in Farmers Branch.  He also served as a Director of the Senior Adult Services, and devoted his time to many community boards, including the Metrocrest Social Services (where he was proudly named Volunteer of the Year in 2013), the Metrocrest Community Clinic, City Council liaison to the Metrocrest Hospital Authority, and President of his local homeowners association.

Herb was also a devoted community volunteer. As President of the Carrollton Lion’s Club, he would volunteer his time helping fit eyeglasses for local children, packing school supplies and selling pancakes as a school fundraiser.  At the Metrocrest Social Services, he would help bag groceries and helping with other senior citizens.

Herb was very active in his church, Mary Immaculate Catholic Church, where he and Bev have been parishioners since 1967. Herb was a member of the Knights of Columbus, served on the Church Finance Committee and most Sundays, you could find him on the altar preparing the gifts or presenting the readings.

Herb is survived by his wife, Beverly Ann Weidinger; son David Andrew Weidinger, daughters Kathleen Ann Foster (Bennett) and Anita Louise McDaniel (Christian); five grandchildren: brothers Matthew and Christopher Moore and Benjamin Smith; and Andrew and Courtney Nicole Foster; as well as numerous nieces and nephews.

Rosary will be held at 10:00 am Friday, March 3, 2017 at Mary Immaculate Catholic Church in Farmers Branch, TX with a Funeral Mass at 11:00 am. A reception will follow at the Church.

In lieu of flowers, you make donations in Herb’s name to the Metrocrest Social Services.

Herb enjoyed golf, the Dallas Cowboys, the Texas Rangers and the Chicago Cubs.  He could not return to Our Lord until after his beloved Cubs finally won the World Series!

I worked with Herb at FDIC for a number of years, both in Chicago and later in Dallas. I always found him to be a true gentleman and I was saddened to read of his passing.

Bev, Kathy, David and Anita,

Herb was a wonderful advocate for me. I will miss his candor, wit and ability to call it as he saw it. He always had a kind heart and hoped those who strayed would return. I will miss our city talk, church talk and mostly his friendship. Herb was a man at peace in his faith and full of love for his family. I will miss you dearly.

Dear Weidinger Family,
My heart goes out to you. I always called Herb "Boss Lion" because he was such a wonderful example of service and leadership to our community. He had a genuine spirit that cared about all people. I will never forget his laugh and how much enjoyed being with people. Your love and memories will give you a lot of comfort. My thoughts and prayers are with you all. Love you Bev.

To dear Beverly and the family of Herb Weidinger: It has been my pleasure to know and volunteer with Herb in many organizations, including the City of Carrollton, Senior Adult Services, Metrocrest Services and Country Place. Herb could best be described as the supreme servant leader. He led with his heart that was full of compassion for his fellow men and women. He deserved every recognition he received because he was humbled by all of the attention. He was a true man of God. May his soul rest in peace!2237 22

Herb was the embodiment of citizenship. He always wanted to give more than he received from life. So many people who have never met him will miss this champion for those who needed help.

Herb: You were a dear friend and mentor for many years. We spoke often, had breakfast meetings and served on several non-profits together. I looked to you to help guide my political career and together we provided encouragement to others to get involved in their community.

You were a tireless volunteer with a constant smile and unique chuckle that set you apart from many.

I will miss you and pray that the good Lord welcomes you with open arms and allows you to continue your good deeds in Heaven.
