    Samuel Henry Weiner of Yardley, PA, died at his home on February 20, 2021 at the age of 94 from complications of myelofibrosis, a type of blood cancer. Born in Philadelphia, PA, he graduated from West Philadelphia High School in 1944 despite being a terrible student. He then enlisted in the Army and served in the Pacific Theater in World War II, where he spent time as a Prisoner of War and earned a Bronze Star. After his discharge in 1946 he attended Penn State University with assistance from the GI Bill, graduating in 1950 with a B.S. in Physics. He then worked at ITE Circuit Breaker in Philadelphia while completing requirements and earning an M.S. in Physics from Penn State. He was discovered to have talent for writing patents and was hired by a New York based patent law firm, now known as Ostrolenk Faber LLP. He earned a J.D. from Temple University Law School in 1961, and stayed at Ostrolenk through his retirement as the firm’s Senior Partner at the age of 84. During his remarkable 60-year career he wrote and litigated patents for solar batteries, rectifiers, microchips, light dimmers and MRI medical technology that revolutionized modern life. He enjoyed travel, great food, reading, the Saturday New York Times Crossword puzzle, opera, sports, a good joke, a cold glass of gin and lousy cigars. Most of all, he cherished his family. He was predeceased by his beloved wife Bella (1929-1992) and is survived by his loving partner Alina Groblicka, sons, Louis (Harriet) Weiner and Stephen (Ryta) Weiner, grandchildren, Kenneth Weiner (Sarah), Elana Fertig (Benjamin), Marla Mindelle, Lisa Westermark (Kai), David Weiner (Kelly), Olivia Weiner, and seven great-grandchildren. Even in death he remains his family’s North Star, guiding us to our better selves. To celebrate his extraordinary life, please direct contributions to Fox Chase Cancer Center, the US Memorial Holocaust Museum, or the charity of your choice.
