GolfNewsRI sends condolences to Patrick and his family.

The GoFundMe Page writes: 

Marty Welch (56) died unexpectedly of cardiac arrest on Wednesday evening August 12th.  He leaves a family of five, including his wife Grace, children Patrick (20), Emma (18),  Jack (15), and Lucie (12).  The circumstances of his sudden death made it even more difficult and tragic. While Grace and Patrick were returning from the US Amateur Golf tournament in Oregon, in which Patrick participated, the other children were at home and present at his death.  As well, Grace’s employment was recently terminated due to the impact of COVID19.

Marty’s family was the center of his universe; he was a loving father and husband and will be missed by all  for his humor, compassion and most of all his dedication to his family and their needs. His passion for life was unmistakable and contagious, he was always “all in” in everything he  did.
