In 1954 he married a Baltimorean, Charlotte Cohen, whose father, Ben Cohen, co-owned Pimlico Race Course with his brother, Herman. The family also owned TV station WAAM, later WJZ-TV.

Dr. Weinberg performed his internship and residency at Sinai Hospital and also studied at the Johns Hopkins School of Medicine.

He opened a private medical practice on Stevenson Road in the 1950s.

After a few years, he enrolled at the University of Maryland School of Medicine and studied psychiatry.

"He was one of the most remarkable men I have ever met," said Rabbi Steven Fink of Baltimore's Temple Oheb Shalom. "He was a great physician, diagnostician, humanitarian, athlete and artist."

In 1962, he moved to Philadelphia for additional study. Dr. Weinberg practiced psychiatry in Wynnewood for many years.

Services were held Sunday in Philadelphia.

In addition to his wife of nearly 62 years, survivors include two sons, Warren Weinberg of Reisterstown and Douglas Weinberg of San Francisco; a daughter, Gwynne Weinberg, also of Reisterstown; a brother, Gordon Weinberg of Linglestown, Pa.; and four grandsons.
