Eric Marshall Weiner, of Hull, died peacefully on Feb. 6 at Brigham & Women’s Hospital in Boston with his loving wife by his side. He had courageously been battling cancer for the past three years. He was 62.
Born in Portland, Maine, on Sept. 1, 1958, he was a son of Selma (Rosenfield) Weiner and the late Sidney Weiner. Eric was raised in Boston’s Mattapan neighborhood and in Hull. He attended local schools and graduated with Hull High School’s class of 1976. He continued his education at the Massachusetts Maritime Academy where he earned his undergraduate degree.
Eric was a nuclear engineer and worked for Areva Inc. for 28 years. Throughout those years, he built a beautiful life and family with his wife, Marianne. The two married on July 12, 1980, in Hingham, and together they shared 41 loving years of marriage.
Eric loved nothing more than spending days on his boat with his family, friends, and cherished grandchildren. He also enjoyed traveling, skiing, his notorious blue Mustang, jamming out to classic rock, and playing bocce on the beach with his friends from grade school.
Eric had a wicked sense of humor and was always smiling. He enjoyed conversations with everyone who crossed his path, especially with those at the marina. His relationships with his family and friends were of utmost importance to him, and he would do anything for the people he loved.
Eric loved fully and unconditionally. His life lessons and legacy will live through his children and grandchildren.
He is survived by his treasured mother, Selma Weiner, of Hull, and his beloved wife, Marianne (LaBreck) Weiner. He was the devoted father of Erin L. O’Marra and her spouse, Patrick, of Connecticut; Jessica I. O’Mara and her spouse, Thomas, of Hull; Matthew C. Weiner, of Quincy; and Michelle A. Weiner and her partner, Matthew Walsh, of Houghs Neck.
Eric was the loving grandfather of Kylee and Molly O’Marra, of Connecticut, and Jack and Charlie O’Mara, of Hull. He was the dear brother of Carla L. Keith and her spouse, Andrew, of South Easton; Gary D. Weiner and his spouse, Dale, of Georgia; Bruce D. Weiner, of Hull; and Mark S. Weiner, of Florida. He is also survived by many loving nieces, nephews, extended family, and friends.
