Paul D. Welp

Age 76, of St. Louis, MO, passed away Thursday, September 8, 2022 at Clarendale of Mokena. Paul was born in St. Louis to the late Alvin A. and Roma A. (nee Rinck) Welp. Loving father of Stacy (Eileen) Narcotta-Welp and Adam (Amy) Welp; cherished grandfather of Daniel Welp and Miles Narcotta-Welp; dear brother of the late John Welp; loved uncle of Mark (Laura) Welp, and great-uncle of Lauren Welp and Anna Welp, Abby Welp and the late Emma Welp; also survived by his former wife and dear friend Sandra Smiljanich. Paul retired in 2006 from Metro Transit in St. Louis, MO, as Director of Treasury Services. Sarcasm was one of the free services he offered over the course of his life. True to the dedication of this craft, Paul died a wanted man, as he rather ride in an ambulance to the hospital than report for assigned jury duty! There were few days Paul could not be found working crossword puzzles with his trusty sidekick, Memphis. Paul was an avid supporter of the St. Louis Cardinals and Blues and a passionate fan of Missouri Tiger Football. M-I-Z! A Celebration of Paul’s Life will be held from 11AM-1PM on Thursday, September 15th, 2022 at Clarendale of Mokena. An additional Celebration of Paul’s Life will be held on Sunday, September 18th, 2022 from 12-4PM at Helen Fitzgerald’s in Sunset Hills, MO. Interment will take place at St. Trinity Cemetery, St. Louis, MO. In lieu of flowers, please donate to your local animal shelter or humane society.
