Troy Welch, age 39, of Corryton, TN went home to be with the Lord on September 14, 2020.
He is preceded in death by mother, Bernice F. Welch; father, James E. Welch; grandparents, Troy and Lillie Sweet and Francis (Green) and Pearl Welch; along with many aunts, uncles and other family.
Survivors include sister, Lillie M. Welch; aunt, Fern Cox; cousins, Darrell and Michelle Burnette and David Monroe; special friends, Amanda Cox, Mr. and Mrs. Smiley Clapp and daughters; plus many other family and friends.
Troy had a heart of gold that many people never got to see. When you did you were a trusted friend. He had greasy hands of a good mechanic who could fix anything. Troy would drop it all to fix or help anyone. He will be greatly missed by many.
As his sister, my personal mission now is to help suicidal people so their families do not have to feel the pain I’m feeling. In lieu of flowers please donate in honor of Troy Welch to the National Suicidal Prevention Lifeline.
A graveside ceremony will be held Saturday, September 26, 2020 at 12:00 pm noon at Oak Grove Primitive Baptist Church (111 Dr. Davis Road, Sharps Chapel, TN 37866) with special speaker Smiley Clapp. Masks are requested but can be provided.
