William "Bill" Welch, Age: 63
Sept. 9, 1956 -- Nov 20, 2019

 

William “Bill” Welch passed from this life on November 20, 2019 after a short but fierce fight with brain cancer. He was born in Newark, OH on September 9, 1956 to Mary and Bill Welch, who predeceased him. His work ethic was unparalleled over the last 30 years in the HVAC industry. He also served as the building committee chairman for several years for Lenexa Baptist Church. His biggest joy in life was his family—wife Joyce, sons Mike (Shannon), Brian (Lauren) and six grandchildren. His retirement dream was to have fishing trips with them in a new boat. He was predeceased by his sister Dottie and is survived by his sister Kim (CR) Riebesell and Terie (Todd) Iden, nieces, nephews, and many friends. Services will be held at Porter Funeral Home, 8535 Monrovia, Lenexa, KS on November 25 at 1:30pm. Visitation one hour prior. Interment will be at Johnson County Memorial Gardens Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, please contribute to the charity of your choice in his memory.

Bill was a consummate professional and committed to his craft. He was equally a proud husband, father and grandpa as I had the honor to work with Bill and talk about such things. He will be missed by so many he touched in his long professional career. I wish the best for his family in this challenging time. Russ Tavolacci

We have the Welch family in our thoughts and prayers today. I'm so glad we were able to visit with you last week. I will miss Bill's texts to Kim during the Ohio State - Michigan game! Prayers that your precious memories will sustain you during this difficult time.

Condolences to Kim, Terri and Bill’s entire family. Although Bill and I lost track of each other after graduation, I always think of him when reminiscing about all the neighborhood baseball, basketball and football games at Hazelwood Elementary. I am praying for the entire family hoping that Christ will bring healing for your loss. Roger
