Joseph Lee Weiler, 83, of Leonardtown, MD died November 21, 2016 at St. Mary's Nursing Center in Leonardtown, MD surrounded by his loving family. Born March 7, 1933 in Washington, D.C., he was the son of the late Joseph Grafton Weiler and Josephine Ethel Weiler.
Joseph retired as an Inspector for the United States Air Force after over 32 dedicated years of civil service in January 1990. He also served his country as a member of the U.S. Army Reserves for 10 years. He was an avid sailor and boater. He loved spending time on the water and travelling. He was once awarded a citation from Governor Mandel for catching a record setting rock fish. He attended sailing school in Annapolis, MD.
He and his late wife Janet loved travelling in his camper to the West Coast, Oregon and the Dakotas. Then they travelled along the East Coast all the way to Nova Scotia where they loved the scenery and water way. Their trip ended where the Vikings landed. They also enjoyed taking cruises to Alaska and the Bahamas, where snorkeling and scuba diving were great fun.
