Obituary of Sydney Welch

WELCH, Sydney Lyle


It is with deepest sorrow that we say goodbye to Sydney Lyle Welch.  He passed away peacefully at the age of 68 with his loving family by his side, in his home in Thorsby, Alberta on October 11, 2020.  Beloved son of Barbara Welch and the late Sterling and Norah Welch.  Cherished father of Sydney (Buck) Welch and Spring Welch.  Loving grandfather to Mad’elyn, Lillian, Karly, and Jordan.  Dear brother of Guy Welch and wife Debbie, Kim Welch Misener, Katherine Frederick and husband Brad, and Murray McInnes.  He will be missed by his 7 nieces and 3 nephews.  Syd will be remembered as owner of Phase Three Book, Sports Cards & Comic Store, Leamington Town Councillor, and his acting involvement in the Sun Parlour Players Community Theatre.  Syd was larger than life. Free spirited, fun-loving, and witty.  A breath of fresh air to all who knew him.  He took the time to acknowledge those along his path.  A beautiful Soul.  We will cherish, share, and hold tight to his memory.  We will sorely miss him.  Cremation has taken place in Thorsby, Alberta.  If desired, memorial donations made to the charity of your choice would be appreciated.  Share words of comfort at
