|Welch, Ernest Roy, Jr.
Birth: 1917-05-11 in Macon, Georgia
|Ernest Roy Welch, Jr. ("Roy"), age 96, passed away Monday, Dec. 2, 2013, at his home in Waldorf, Maryland. |
Dear husband of 68 years to Doris Martin Welch; father of Patrick Welch, Walter Welch, Kathleen McElrath, Marylin Robinson and Suzanne Rhodes; grandfather of William Welch, Christine Welch, Jason Welch, Ryan Welch, Paul Rhodes, Matthew Rhodes, Sean Tereba, Lindsay Tereba, Chelsea Simonian and Jevon Robinson; and great-grandfather to Sayde Welch, Lacey Welch and Lilly Tereba. Roy is survived by sisters Mary Alice Kline and Florence Bradford.
He was the son of the late Ernest Roy Welch, Sr. and Linda Williams Welch. He was also preceded in death by his sister, Jacklyn Shockley.
Roy was born May 11, 1917 in Macon, Georgia and lived in Juliette, Georgia. The family relocated from Georgia to Florida. He graduated from High School in Orlando, Florida, where he lettered in boxing. He attended the University of Florida on a boxing scholarship. He served in the CCC (Civilian Conservation Corp) and the Florida National Guard.
He joined the Navy in 1940 and served as yeoman on several light cruisers in places including Guam, Africa and Cuba. He produced the ship's newspaper and was the one who broke the news to the crew about the attack on Pearl Harbor. His closest brush with danger was while serving on the USS Quincy. The ship was attacked and sunk by Japanese planes shortly after he was transferred to a new assignment.
After the Navy, Roy and his new bride moved to the Washington area so he could attend George Washington University. Eventually he joined his father in the building business and they built numerous homes in the Washington area. He spent many years managing the building, repairs and maintenance of the family's various rental properties while scheduling his work and volunteering around the care and activities of his 5 children.
Roy enjoyed many things in life: writing poetry, playing guitar and piano, gardening and home projects, taking care of his horses and his other farm pets, traveling the country in his motor home and dabbling in electronics. Roy was a founding member of Lifestream Nazarene Church. What he cherished most was time spent with his family, and he served as a great example of love, kindness and devotion to all of the family.

|Ernestine “Tina” Fenwick, 72 of Valley Lee, MD, passed away peacefully in her sleep on December 2, 2013, after a long fought battle with multiple sclerosis (MS). Her loving husband, Joseph Fenwick, was her caregiver.|
Tina was born on April 30, 1941 in Wilmington, North Carolina to the parents of William TC Bass and Esabelle McAllister. She moved to Washington as a young teen to be with her father.
Tina worked various jobs while raising her three children and taking care of her mother. In 1966, she was hired by a start-up electronic company as an assembler. Tina grew with the company and a senior Electronic Inspector, where she met the love of her life, Joseph Francis Fenwick, who talked her out of buying a Mustang and promised that she could use his car or he would give her a ride to work. It worked. They were married in September 1968. They left Washington, DC and moved to a new city, Columbia, Maryland, in Howard County, where they lived for 38 years.
Due to Tina’s illness, she had to quit work in 1988.
Joe continued to work until 2008. Joe moved back home to St. Mary’s in 2008 to a one-story home that was wheel chair accessible for Tina’s safety. She loved to sit on the waterfront and watch the sunset. MS continued to degrade her and eventually she became bedridden in 2010. Being the tough woman that she was, Tina fought her disease until the end.
