In memory of
Francis Garrett WELSH
WELSH, Francis Garrett Francis Garrett Welsh, 74, died peacefully Thursday, April 13, 2017, surrounded by his family. More than anything, Fran loved his wife and family. He married the love of his life on July 1, 1967 in Franklin Park, NJ. They lived in Endicott, NY before moving to Boynton Beach, FL in 1975. He loved to golf, read, sing and dance. His unique sense of humor kept us on our toes, and he had a penchant for taking the scenic route no matter the destination-just to enjoy the view. We will miss him tremendously. Born June 27, 1942, in Somerset, PA the son of Charles A. and Elizabeth Welsh, he is remembered and loved by his wife, Maria L. Welsh (Arias) of Ashburn, VA and Boynton Beach, FL; his children Cristina M. Perez (husband, Richard) of South Riding, VA, Michael F. Welsh (wife Ann) of Boynton Beach, FL and Theresa E. Tamboer (husband Keith) of Bridgewater, NJ; his eight grandchildren Elizabeth, Ana Maria, Bernadette, Ricky, Emily, Madeline, Mikey and Carolina; his brother Charles A. Welsh (wife Joan); his sister Elizabeth Bradley; and many nieces, nephews and cousins. Fran attended the University of Dayton, served in the Army and worked for IBM as Systems Engineer until his retirement.
