Frank L. Weyenberg was born in Appleton, Wisconsin on March 26, 1882. In 1892, the Weyenberg family entered into a partnership to sell shoes. Frank L. Weyenberg entered his family’s shoe business in 1897 at age 15. By 1906, he was president of the Weyenberg Shoe Manufacturing Co., based in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. Mr. Weyenberg was president of the company until 1962, when he became Chairman of the Board, a position he held until he retired in 1968. During his time as president and chairman, company sales grew dramatically. Mr. Weyenberg remained on the Board of Directors of the company, now called the Weyco Group, until his death in 1976. Mr. Weyenberg had a second home in Palm Beach, Florida for many, many years and was a Florida resident at his death.
