Welton attended Patty Welder until the eighth grade then he went to work on the farm. He then decided to go to work at Central Power and Light Company at the age of 19 years old. He worked for them for 41 years before retirement as a lineman. Anytime we passed an CPL-AEP truck he practically climbed out of the window to wave at them. He was a very active Christian attending Kenedy Church of Christ for many years. He had many hobbies: wolf, coon, fox, hog, deer, and bird hunting and breaking horses: along with playing wahoo, chicken foot, hand and foot, trail, canasta, hearts. He especially loved it when his son would take him to Yoakum to play dominoes. He also loved to camp with his family and his CPL friends. Above all else he loved spending time with his family, friends, and especially his grandkids and great grandkids!
