The youngest of your two living daughters are 90 and 92 and they are the last two people alive that knew you. You were the successful hearing son of two deaf parents, James Leonard Welty and Emma J. Speake Welty who attended Gallaudet College. Your father was a type-setter of the Government Printing Office and your mother, a brilliant women and a member of the experimental group of Co-eds of Gallaudet college in the 1870's. You went on to serve for 30 years in the Naval Service of the United States where upon retirement was appointed an Investigator in the Department of Justice. You were survived by your wife and five children. The youngest was seven at the time of your death. Your grandchildren never knew you but we continue to admire the memory of the person that you were and know that a part of you is in each of us. We are proud to remember you by your service to our country and as a fine husband, father and beloved grandfather.
