Obituary for Robert H. Welser

Robert Henry Welser, 89, beloved father, grandfather, great-grandfather, great-great grandfather and brother was called home on Wednesday February 4, 2015 to be with his Lord and Savior after a short illness.

Bob was born on September 20, 1925 in Marine City to Fred and Harriet Welser. He graduated from Saginaw Arthur Hill high school in 1943 and attended General Motors Institute. Bob served his country during WWII as a gunner on a B-24 bomber in India. After the war ended he attended and graduated from Michigan State University.

Bob met the love of his life, Winifred Soldan in 1947 and they were united in marriage on June 13, 1948. She preceded him in death in 2011 and Bob missed her greatly. Bob and Win were known for many years in Gladwin as the couple who walked together downtown hand in hand on their way to the Pepper Mill for morning coffee. After Winifred’s death Bob was seen even more often in the Pepper Mill.

Bob was a member of Our Savior Lutheran Church and served in many leadership roles over the years. He always sang in the choir.

Robert is survived by a large family, whom he loved very much, five children, Dina/Diana Ariel of Jerusalem, Israel; Fred (Sandy) of Portage; Matt (Marcia) of Dallas, Texas; Paul (Laurie) of Morehead City, North Carolina; and Roger (Karen) of Midland. Also surviving are 15 grandchildren, 28 great-grandchildren, and 2 great-great grandchildren, a sister, Irene Malosh of Gladwin, and a brother-in-law, Howard (Erna) Soldan of Diamondale.
