Adolph 'Ad' Wienert Jr., 95

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — Adolph Clarence "Ad" Wienert Jr., 95, of Williamstown, Mass., passed away on Monday September 2, 2019.

He was born in Baltimore, Md., on April 5, 1924, the first of two sons of Adolph Clarence Wienert Sr. and Mary Elizabeth (Whiteley) Wienert. He was a veteran of World War II, serving as a sergeant in the U.S. Army. Upon returning home, Ad began a decades-long career as an actor employed as a radio and TV spokesperson. He was a member of the Screen Actors Guild and AFTRA.

After moving to Williamstown from New York City in 1989, he filled his days making pottery and reading, acting in the local summer theater festivals, and as a longtime hospice volunteer. He ultimately finished his college education interrupted by World War II, receiving a bachelor's degree in history from Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts at the age of 82 in 2006.

Survivors include his wife, Irene "Madison" (Papendick) Wienert, whom he married on February 21, 1967; two daughters, Kim Wienert of Maryland and Jennifer Wienert of New York City; three sons, Robert Steven Wienert of Burlington, Vt., Christopher Lee Wienert of Chapel Hill, N.C., and Adam Cory Wienert of Providence, R.I.; three grandchildren; and two great-grandchildren.

I remember working on a tech crew when he was acting in The Gin Game in the early 90s - he was a wonderful actor and a tremendously friendly and supportive guy.
