Obituary for Richard Welch

Richard Welch, known by his friends as Dick, wrote his obituary prior to his passing. His family would like to share this with you.

“Written by a rebel who disapproved of the funeral customs of our society. He leaves behind his wonderful wife, Marilyn, who had a busy career as a Registered Nurse, whose hallmark has always been empathy. She did a fine job in raising our three daughters, Patricia, Victoria and Julia. Since it is wrong for a parent to be overly ambitious for a child, all he ever wanted for his children was to become good citizens: and they are.
He graduated from Wayne University in Civil engineering to become a Registered Professional Engineeer in Michigan Ohio, Indiana, and Kentucky. He served in the U.S. Army during the “Police Action” in Korea and was subsequently employed by Darin & Armstrong, Giffels & Valet, Borin Industries, Price Brothers, and Dayton Superior. He founded Concrete Technology, with lifelong friends and business partners, a precast concrete company located in Springboro. Near the end of his career he helped establish Concrete Technology as an employee owned company so that the employees could be captains of their own fate. They sold the company to a competitor. Big disappointment!
Cremation. No Funeral Home. No visitation.
Be kind to Marilyn.
If desired, make a contribution to the Salvation Army.

The family would like all to know that Dick was a warrior, a man of sensitivity, kindness, and integrity. He was a model citizen, a good husband and father, and a leader and friend for all those whose lives he touched.
The family would like to thank Hospice of Dayton for the wonderful care provided, and would ask that any donations be made to Hospice of Dayton in Lieu of flowers.
