Obituary of Lukas Michael Welsch


Lukas Michael Welsch, 29, of Ware Shoals SC entered eternal rest on Saturday July 16, 2022.  Born in Niskayuna New York he was a son of Bernadine Stanton Peyton and the late Harold A. Welsch.

 He was a graduate of Ware Shoals High School. His greatest goal in life was to make people laugh and raise his two sons. He was a devoted father, son and friend. Lukas” unyielding love for life, to have fun and make people laugh, is only surpassed by his great and unwavering love for his family and friends who he loved ferociously. His infectious smile and ability to light up a room was a gift he inherited from his dad.

 Lukas had a passion for trucks (Ford’s), motorcycles I’m working on, any junk. And making them work. Another gift from his dad. He will be deeply missed by so many.

Hear the wind and listen, feel the wind, and know I am with you!
