Michael William Welch

WILMINGTON — Michael William Welch, 62, was born to William and Clara Welch in Mount Airy. On Oct. 15, 2020, he suffered multiple severe injuries during a motorcycle accident and later died Friday, Oct. 23, 2020.

He was greeted in heaven by his dad, grandparents, a great friend and many other relatives.

Mike was survived by his fiancé, Vickie Chilton, and their two constant companions Sadie and Cooper, two children, Travis Welch and Mandy Welch; mother, Clara Welch; brothers, Christopher and Stephen Welch; and sister, Jeanna Welch. Mike was proud to be the grandpa of Travis’ children, Brayton, Kenleigh and Zaiden. Mike would want his great group of friends, who he loved very much, mentioned.

Mike died doing what he loved, riding his motorcycle. He was an organ donor. Even in his death, he gave many others what they needed to live, even the gift of sight. Please watch out for riders — they have families who love them too!

The family will be having a celebration of Mike’s life at 11 a.m., Saturday, Nov. 21, at Lifepoint Church, 3534 S. College Road, Wilmington.
