The Great Lakes Floral Association (GLFA) is sad to report lifelong member and Past President Robert Weigold passed away on September 10, 2022, at the age of 94.
Bob grew up in the greenhouse business. The Chesaning Floral Company, co-founded by his father in 1920, became Weigold Floral Company, Inc. and was moved to Brady Road. (M-57) in 1950. He was President of the Great Lakes Floral Association in 1982, known then as the Michigan State Florists Association.
The GLFA loves how Bob addresses "In Lieu of Flowers" in his obituary; we couldn't have said it any better.
"It is difficult for a florist family to suggest In lieu of flowers. That said, it is certainly not necessary, but please think of this as an encouragement to practice supporting your local florist. Weigold flower arrangements brought such beauty, joy, and comfort to area families for 80 years. It was an honor and a ministry from the heart."
