Obituary of Kenneth J. Welsh


Kenneth J. Welsh, 86, of McGraw, died on Thursday, March 2, 2023 in University Hospital, Syracuse.


Ken was a lifelong area resident. Following his graduation in 1955 from McGraw High School, he enlisted in the US Army, serving from 1956 – 1958.

Ken was employed by Economy Paving for 42 years, retiring as superintendent.

He enjoyed playing golf and sports in general. Ken could often be seen at most McGraw High sporting events, scouting out who was going to be the next star.

Surviving is his loving wife of 61 years, Linette Griswold Welsh; three children, Nancy (Don) Davis of Victor; Nicholas Welsh of Cincinnatus and Marcus Welsh of McGraw; his grandchildren, Sydney and Colton ‘Chucky’ Welsh; Cooper and Ty Davis and Kelan, Zachary and Spencer Welsh as well as several nieces and nephews.

He was predeceased by his son, Christopher L. Welsh in 2019; a sister, Dorothy Satterlee and a brother, Ralph Welsh.

In keeping with Ken’s wishes, there are no calling hours or services. Interment in McGraw Cemetery will be at the convenience of the family.

Nothing would mean more to Ken and his family for those who wish to honor him by attending a ballgame or sporting event.
