Pat Welch March 24, 1936 - April 20, 2019

Resided in Portland, Oregon

Pat passed from this life into Glory on Saturday, April 20. He had suffered several strokes over the last five and a half years and was cared for by his family at home.
Pat served in the military (Navy, Navy Reserves, and Oregon National Guard) for 40 years.  After receiving a masters degree in criminal justice, he worked as a security officer at Good Samaritan Hospital for 25 years.
Pat trusted the Lord for salvation when he was in college and was faithful to God, country, his family, his work, and his church throughout his life. He was very friendly and outgoing — loving people and humor.
Pat is survived by wife, Sue, and children, Heather, Holly, and Brian. We rejoice that Pat has a new body and is enjoying the presence of the Lord! He will be buried at Willamette National Cemetery at 1:00 on April 29. 2019.
A favorite scripture was, “I go to prepare a place for you. If I go and prepare a place for you, I will come again and receive you to Myself, that where I am, there you may be also.”  John 14:1-3
