WELTZ--S. Robert, passed away in Santa Barbara on March 21st. He leaves behind his wife, Gloria, daughters; Laurie and Christina Weltz, and Catherine Beurnier, grandchildren; India Ennenga, Edmond and Oliver Ritter, Sebastian and Gisele Beurnier, and his sister, Pauline Raiff. Bob was an active member of the NYSE for over 50 years, but his great passion was for orchids: a member of the American Orchid Society Board, he had one of the greatest private orchid collections in the world and was interviewed on 60 Minutes as the "consummate orchid grower." He will be sorely missed.
