Brian T. Welch

    Brian Todd Welch, 39, of Erie, Pennsylvania, passed away on Thursday, January 12, 2017. He was born in Lima, Ohio on March 4, 1977.

    Brian was working toward his Bachelor of Science degree in Human Services, with a concentration in addiction, through the University of Phoenix. His goal was “to give back to others, what was once given to him.” His passions in life included listening to music, watching sports, especially the Oakland Raiders, watching wrestling with friends, Star Wars, and his Bombay cat, Pantera.

    Brian is survived by his mother Debra R. Moore, his sister, Sherrie R. Davidson (Welch), his brother-in-law, Matthew T. Davidson, and his niece, Olivia R. Davidson, all of Warrenton, Virginia; and several aunts, uncles, and cousins in Ohio, Florida, and Arizona.

    Brian is preceded in death by his father, Todd W. Welch formerly of Lima, Ohio.

    Other survivors include his best friend Meghan McAnallen of Erie, Pennsylvania; his loving support family, Kate, Jon, and Allison Bard, Helen Russo, Claude and Alice McAnallen, all of Butler, Pennsylvania; and Kendra Cochran of Seattle, Washington.

    Brian’s Warrenton family wishes to extend their heartfelt gratitude to Askins Cremation Funeral Services of Erie, Pennsylvania for the patience, guidance, and kindness given during this difficult time.
