He was born on Sept. 2, 1924, in Germany, the son of Wilhelm and Florentine (Brenner) Weiss. Henry was united in marriage to Olga Schachtschneider on Sept. 4, 1945, in Pressel, Germany. They came to the United States in 1952 with their first three children. In 1957, they built their first home on Paoli Street in Verona, and added their fourth child. He was living the American dream. He retired from Bancroft Dairy, Madison in 1990. He was also a mason by trade. He was an avid gardener and sang with the Madison Maennerchor for many years.
