Tom Welsh, 903 23rd Ave., Moline, celebrated his 80th birthday on Saturday, April 27, with family and friends in Port Byron at the home of his son, Chris.
Mr. Welsh was born April 25, 1933. He married Nancy Wahlgren, Moline, on Nov. 28, 1953, at Sacred Heart Church, Moline.
His children are Mark (Sue) Welsh, Crystal, Minn.; Tim (Karen) Welsh, Austin, Texas; Keith Welsh, Moline; Chris (Chrissy) Welsh, Port Byron; and Joe Welsh (fiance Angela), Moline. He has four grandchildren and 11 great-grandchildren.
He was the co-owner of Rodts and Welsh Masonry for more than 30 years. He is retired, but continues to help and be supportive with those special projects that come his way, something his kids appreciate very much!
He is a member of Sacred Heart Church, Moline.
Eight or 80? Not real sure sometimes, Tom is the biggest kid you ever want to meet, just one of the many things we love about him!
