HAROLD JOHN WELSCH (better known as "H" or "Unk"), 85 years old passed on April 3, 2014 at The Waterford in Juno Beach, Fl. Harold was born June 21, 1928 in Philadelphia to Katharina and Otto B. Welsch. He was one of five siblings, including Otto, Eleanor, Eugene and Anita.

After he was honorably discharged from the Army, Harold married Doris McFadden from Philadelphia, on October 6, 1951. Both avid boat lovers and fishermen, they spent their 63 years between Philadelphia, Long Beach Island, NJ and Florida. They also founded the H. J. WELSCH Co. from which they retired after 30 years.

Harold's favorite retirement pastimes (other than fishing) were driving the Shriner patients to the Shriner's Children's Hospital in Tampa, FL. playing in their Drum & Bugle Corps early on, and finally participating in their Mariner Unit activities.

At The Waterford, his love was the Vesper Choir, in which he sang for many years.

Harold is survived by his devoted wife Doris, his sister Eleanor Pike , Eugene/Thelma Welsch, and Anita/George Moyer. He is also survived by many beloved nieces and nephews.

A private Burial At Sea Service will be held by the family. Special thanks to The Waterford, Hospice, and all those who called and came to visit.

Donations in Harold's memory may be made to either Faith Lutheran Church, 555 US Hwy One, North Palm Beach, Fl. 33408 or to the Children's Transportation Fund of Amara Shriners, 3650 RCA Blvd, PBG, Fl. 33410
