Bill recently celebrated 38 years with A.A. He served as manager of a half-way house on Keefus Road from 1974 to 1977. He was a self-employed handyman who could do most anything, helping over 100 people in the Conneaut/Ashtabula/Erie areas until the age of 80 when he was slowed down by a stroke.

He loved to golf and bowl, and played golf until 2011 and had breakfast with his golfing buddies during the off-season.

Survivors include his wife, Linda M. (Cottrill) Welty, whom he married Sept. 29, 1975; a daughter and two sons from a previous marriage; and three sons, Stephen W. Welty of Conneaut, Jonathan A. Welty of North Carolina, and Clinton J. “C.J.” Welty of Columbus, Ohio; two grandsons, Bailey and Christian; two sisters, Caroline (Doyle) Sidle of Fredricksburg, Ohio, and Charlotte L. Jones Alexander of Wooster, Ohio; two sisters-in-law, Doris Welty of Canton, Ohio, and Betty Welty of Florida; and numerous nieces, nephews and more distant relatives.

He was preceded in death by his parents; four brothers, Richard, Robert, James and Charles; and a sister, Ruby Smith.
