WELCH, Maurice (Mo) – Mr. Maurice James Welch at Parisien Manor on October 29, 2020 at the age of 87 years. Beloved husband of 58 years to Gisele (née Larocque). Loving father of Cynthia Welch, James (Maru), and Jennifer Welch. Sadly missed by his grandchildren Angela, Michelle, Allison, and Lauren. Dear brother of Myrtle, Herb (Amy), Jack (Judy), and Jean Haas (Wilf). Cremation has taken place. The Mass of Christian Burial, with controlled attendance and seating, will be celebrated at St. Francis de Sales Roman Catholic Church on Wednesday November 4, 2020 at 10:00AM. Family and visitors entering the church will be required to wear a face mask. Maurice was born in Crystal Springs, Saskatchewan and graduated from the University of Saskatchewan studying Engineering and Physics. He moved to Montreal where he met his wife Gisele and together they settled in Cornwall, Ontario in 1967. Mo enjoyed his career as a teacher in the Engineering Department at St. Lawrence College. He was passionate about sports, particularly baseball and hockey, both as a player and a fan. He loved music from country to classical. Mo played various instruments and encouraged his children to appreciate and participate as well. Mo’s biggest joy came from his family. He spent countless hours driving his children to and from dance, music, and swim lessons. Mo loved working outdoors and was always there to help with Gisele’s garden (making sure her rows were straight). He was interested in his grandchildren’s dreams and was invested and willing to help make them happen. He loved reading, punctuality, and strawberry shortcake. In lieu of flowers, donations in memory can be made to Parisien Manor, 439 Second St. E. Cornwall, ON. Funeral arrangements entrusted to Wilson Funeral Home 822 Pitt Street, Cornwall.

Dear Gisele and family: My sincerest condolences as you mourn the loss of a loving husband, father and grandfather. I haven't see Mo in a long time but the photos brought back some fond memories of this dear man. I still see his laughing eyes and beautiful smile in those photos and remember what a warm person he was. He was well loved by the staff and his students at St. Lawrence College. I can only imagine the void he will leave in your lives. Hopefully, all the beautiful memories of your lives together will sustain you during these hard times and in years to come. I send you a virtual hug, Gisele, and will pray for Mo and your family this week.

My condolences to all the family. Professor Welch was an excellent and demanding teacher. He was a real professional and exemplary educator with real world experience to share. He challenged all his students to excel and exposed us to the fundamentals. Cornwall was lucky to have such a world class engineering physicist as a teacher. He will be missed.
