On the afternoon of December 20, 2019, Paul W. Weiler, President of the Deep Creek Lake Property Owners’ Association, unexpectedly passed away from a brief but fatal battle with viral pneumonia. 

Paul led the POA with clear headed purpose and the desire to ensure the voice of all the property owners who cared about the lake and its watershed, whether living on the lake or elsewhere in the watershed, were heard on a variety of issues.  He worked tirelessly to improve on the relationships the POA has with any number of businesses as well as local and state level officials to strengthen the credibility the POA possesses and can bring to bear on issues for its members.  Generous with his time, he served on the boards of the Garrett Lake Arts Festival, The Garrett College Foundation Board, and the Deep Creek Watershed Foundation.  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 accepted the position of Editor of the Dispatch when he joined the POA Board which quickly transitioned into serving as the Vice President of Communications prior to assuming the position of President in August 2018.

He was totally dedicated to the Deep Creek Watershed and the Lake and those who benefitted from both.  He was that quiet professional who got things done with no fanfare and sought recognition for nothing.  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.
