Agent Welty,
Sir, I would just like to say thank you for your years of dedicated service and sacrifice for our Country-not just as a Law Enforcement Officer but when you served with the USN as well-especially during WW I. And to your Family and loved ones, I wish to extend my deepest sympathy.

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.

Special Agent Welty, though you performed one of the least popular jobs in law enforcement history, you had the guts to do it, day in and day out. That's the sign of a hero.

On this 82nd anniversary of your sad and untimely death, know that you are not forgotten and still have admirers back here in the US. A tough job done by tough men.

God Bless and may you forever Rest in Peace, Brother.

Your heroism and service is honored today, the 79th anniversary of your death. Your memory lives and you continue to inspire. Thank you for your service. My cherished son Larry Lasater was a fellow police officer who was murdered in the line of duty on April 24, 2005 while serving as a Pittsburg, CA police officer.

Time never diminishes respect. Your memory will always be honored and revered.

Rest In Peace.
