Allan Welch Obituary

Rick Welch died unexpectedly in Salida, Colorado on April 15, 2023. Rick was born January 4, 1946 in Massachusetts. Rick’s siblings all looked up to him. He could do everything - all sports: snow skiing, ice hockey, water skiing, guitar playing, motorcycle riding. But his passion was downhill skiing and after attending Boston University and Curry College, he followed the snow to Maine and New Hampshire. In New Hampshire he worked at Geneva Point Camp in Moultonborough. Then, in 1973 he moved to Steamboat Springs, Colorado, and to Salida in 2008, where he worked for Holmes Construction. Rick is survived by his sister Jan of Center Harbor, NH; his sister Sandi Bourgois and nephews Kurt and Chris, and niece Kerri of Arlington MA; his brother David, sister-in-law Karen, and nephew David of Arcadia, Florida; and his dearest friend Kristy Young of Salida Colorado. Rick skied in every single month of the past two years, and was looking forward to having skied 248 months in a row! A private Celebration of Life is planned. On line condolences may be sent to the family at Arrangements are with Lewis and Glenn Funeral Home
