As a resident here at Carriage House Glendale for more than 11 years, Ferris had become family. It is with heavy hearts that we hear of this news and our thoughts and prayers are with all his friends and family. He will not soon be forgotten.

In spite of the fact that Ferris was my exfather-in-law, we still kept in touch with each other over the last 30 years. He also remained in regular
contact with his great grandson, Jacob Welsh,who lives in Tulsa. Ferris was a sweet, gentle man & generous almost to a fault. He lived a long, loving life and will be missed by his family & all who knew him.
