Please share a memory of Robert to include in a keepsake book for family and friends.

Robert Earl Welti 

January 28, 1955 - January 28, 2023


Robert (Bob) Welti, 68, of Dayton, Ohio, lost his battle with liver cancer and passed away on January 28, 2023, surrounded by family and friends.

Bob was born to Eugene and Lucille Tucker Welti, on January 28, 1955, in Dayton, Ohio. He was a talented millwright and fabrication engineer who loved tinkering, building, and woodcarving. He learned to work on cars with his father and discovered the love of baking with his mother. Bob's favorite pastime was bass fishing, and he loved exploring nature. Bob valued helping others and often fixed something or fed others to help his village, whether he knew them or not. He would tell us, a stranger is just a friend you haven't met yet.


Bob is survived by his children, Justin Welti and Maranda Heil (Daylen), and his granddaughter, Reille. His brothers, Chuck Welti (Linda) and Larry Welti (Sandy), and sisters, Patricia Welti, Paula Ward (Dave), Pamela Smithers (Bob), Catherine Taylor (Dennis), Mary McHenry (John), and Amy Welti, along with many other family and friends. Bob was predeceased by his parents, Eugene and Lucille Welti, brothers Merle (Mick) Welti and William (Bill) Welti, and his grandson Lane Burrows. 


Bob joined the Army in 1973 and served stateside. After his service, he moved to Idaho to join his brother Larry at Bunker Hill Silver Mine in Kellogg, Idaho. Bob spent his time a mile underground! After the mine shut down, he moved his wife (Joyce Hazelrigg) and children back to Ohio. 


We asked Bob to sum up his time during the dash, and he simply replied, "it was a wild ride." Thank you to all that joined him for the adventure; Bob was number eight of eleven children and was often described as a friend to all. His most proud accomplishment was fatherhood. He taught his children to be true to their word, help others when they can, and be kind to others. As Bob would say, "Keep the greasy side down." Dad, we love you; rest well until we see you again.
