Nov 6, 1933 - May 24, 2013 YUKON Calvin Coy Welch, born on November 6, 1933, passed on to be with our Lord May 24, 2013. He started his journey in Anadarko, OK. He served in the U.S. Navy during the Korean War. Calvin had the confidence and charisma that led him to be successful in many business ventures, including as an independent trucking contractor, owning a painting business with his brother, developing land, and even raising horses and longhorn cattle. His biggest accomplishment was his nearly 60-year marriage to his beautiful wife, Doris Welch. Through their love and commitment, they created a legacy of two children, six grandchildren, and five great-grandchildren. An active member of the community, Calvin served as a Mustang City Councilman and was a 50-year member of the Masonic Lodge, achieving the 32 degree (Past Master, Mustang Masonic Lodge). He was also a member of the 1st United Methodist Church in Yukon and the Genesis Sunday School class. He was a talented wood carver and loving teacher of the art. He also raised pigeons and delighted his family by performing in the annual Dinner Theater benefiting the Dale Robertson Senior Center. Calvin was a strong, unique, and loving man that will be greatly missed for his positive outlook, sense of humor, entertaining stories, and quirkiness referred to as "Calvinisms." Calvin is survived by his wife, Doris; his two sons, Russell Welch, of OKC; and Coy and Kay Welch, of Yukon; six grandchildren, and five great-grandchildren. Calvin was preceded in death by his Father, Mother, five sisters, and two brothers. In lieu of flowers, if you wish, please make a donation to 1st United Methodist Church of Yukon or Masonic Charities. Funeral Services will be held Tuesday, May 28, 2013, at 10 a.m. at 1st United Methodist Church, Yukon, with interment following at Yukon Cemetery. Yanda and Son
