William “Tut” Paul Weichert, IV, 55, passed away peacefully in his sleep on Sunday, March 7, 2021, at his fishing camp in Placida, Florida.
Tut was born at Overlook Hospital in Summit, NJ, and spent his life in Chatham, graduating from Chatham High School. He met the love of his life there, Mary Tunny, and they recently celebrated their 30th wedding anniversary.
Tut was the proud owner of Chatham Main Contractors, which he truly loved, for his entire professional life. Tut cared deeply for his employees and all who came through the doors of Chatham Main became family.
He loved taking pictures. You could always catch Tut with a camera instructing all to “get together” any time his loved ones were near. It was so important he captured the moment no matter how outwardly insignificant it might have seemed. The family will forever cherish the thousands of memories he caught in that film.
He was also a lifelong communicant at St. Patrick’s Church in Chatham. He was an accomplished race car driver, enjoying many years building his own race cars “from the ground up” and competing at Wall Stadium in Wall, NJ. He was an enthusiastic, avid fisherman, both at his parents’ farm in New Hampshire, the Whitney Farm, and on the coasts of New Jersey and Florida.
He was an exempt member of the Chatham Volunteer Fire Department, having served there proudly for over 30 years. Tut was also part of the Morris County Fife & Drum, Summit Elks and was the adjutant of Sons of American Legion.
Tut was predeceased by his dear father, William P. Weichert, III. He is survived by his loving wife Mary, two daughters, Anne Marie “Annie” and her husband Andrew Freeman, currently of Newport, RI, and Emily Weichert of Greenwich, CT, and his son William “Will” P. Weichert, V, of New Vernon. He is also survived by his beloved mother, Barbara Ann (Luciano) Weichert of Shelburne, NH & Placida, FL, his brother Jeffrey Weichert of Chatham & his wife Teri, his sister Kristen Monks & her husband Doug of Chatham. He also leaves many aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces and nephews, who will all sorely miss him, too.
Tut will be remembered fondly by all who knew him, for his infectious smile, his sense of humor and generosity to all. He was truly devoted to his family, and was a friend for life, whether you met him 5 minutes or 50 years ago.
