Stanley Weiss, 60, a longtime Buffalo businessman, died Saturday (Dec. 8, 1990) after a lengthy illness.

Weiss and his father, the late Samuel Weiss, operated the family business, Amco Monogram and Embroidery, at 546 Washington St. for 33 years.

In 1974, he and his son Jon began the Buffalo Shirt Factory, which operates at 1176 Main St.

Six years later, downtown construction forced the family to relocate Amco to Main Street.

Weiss, who was born in Cleveland and lived in the Town of Tonawanda, also was president of the Jewish National Workers' Alliance Credit Union from 1987 to 1989.

Besides his son Jon, of Grand Island, survivors include his wife, the former Sylvia Sorrell of the Town of Tonawanda; his mother, Belle Weiss; a brother, Leonard of Kenmore; a daughter, Cindy Martino of Williamsville; another son, Craig of North Tonawanda, and three grandchildren.

Funeral services will be conducted at 2 p.m. today in Delaware Park Memorial Chapel, 2141 Delaware Ave. Burial will be in Elmlawn Cemetery, Town of Tonawanda.
