The Paul W. Weiler Memorial Fund

The Paul W. Weiler Memorial Fund


On the afternoon of December 20, 2019, Paul W. Weiler  unexpectedly passed away from a brief, but fatal battle, with viral pneumonia.  At the time of his passing, Paul was the Director of Projects for the Deep Creek Watershed Foundation (DCWF) and the President of the Property Owners’ Association of Deep Creek Lake.

Generous with his time, he also served on the boards of the Garrett Lake Arts Festival and The Garrett College Foundation.  He also had served as President of the DCWF for several months.  All this while caring for his lovely wife Pat who suffered from Alzheimer’s Disease and who predeceased him by two months. 

Paul led an amazing life which began at a very young age when he and his immediate family escaped from Nazi Germany in 1938.  It carried on through his work on the Apollo 11 Space Program which successfully put a man on the moon then continued with Lockheed Martin where he served as a Program Manager and Quality Systems Auditor until his retirement in 2006.

He was totally dedicated to the Deep Creek Watershed and the Lake and those who benefitted from both.  He enjoyed making friends and building new relationships. A quiet professional who got things done with no fanfare and also sought no recognition.  He was kind, warm, smart, and loved single malt scotch.

But of all these accomplishments he had in his life and all that he was, the one that meant the most to us was that he was our dear friend whom we shall miss forever.  So, to remember one of the finest volunteers ever who sought to preserve the lake and watershed for posterity, the DCWF Board established this fund in Paul’s memory.   Resources from this special fund will be used over time to fund many projects we know he would have wanted to see succeed. 

Please donate generously to ensure Paul’s good work and memory are perpetuated for many years to come!
