Allen Ray Welch, 77, passed on to be with our Lord on February 11th, 2021 after a short battle with COVID-19. Funeral services will be held at 3:30 p.m. Saturday, February 13, 2021 at the Duhon Funeral Home Chapel of Crowley, LA.
Visitation may be observed on Saturday from 9:00 a.m. until service time. The burial will follow in the Woodlawn Cemetery. Rev. Gerard Morgan, Associate Pastor of Northside Assembly of God, will conduct the funeral services.
Allen is survived by his wife of 52 years Karen Marcantel Welch; daughter – Tara Welch Hearn and her husband Eric; grand-children Meghan Schendel Quibodeaux and her husband Bryan, Nicholas Hearn and his wife Summer Hildebrandt; great-grand-children Avery & Lena Quibodeaux, and Makenzy & Skye Hearn. He is also survived by brothers: Calvin, Alvin Dale, Jamie; and sister: Clara Lee Duhon – and their families. He was preceded in death by his parents: L.C. “Bob” and Enolia Smith Welch; brothers Lawrence “Jr.”, Melvin, Harry Lee, and Linda Ann Welch.
Allen proudly served in the U.S. Army from 1962-1965 in Germany as a Sgt. E-5 Driver/Mechanic and Sharpshooter. That knowledge carried over to his civilian career as a diesel mechanic who built hot-rods and antique cars. Since his retirement from Conoco/Sentinel, Allen dedicated his life to the many Veterans he met. He was especially proud to have played a part in getting K.I.A./M.I.A. veterans returned home. He enjoyed working on the new American Legion Post 15 home restoration. Allen spent the last few years of his life spoiling his great grand-children Avery, Lena, Makenzy and Skye every chance he got.
In lieu of flowers, donations made to American Legion Post 15 or Northside Christian School are greatly appreciated.

My deepest condolences to Karen and family on the loss of Allen. He and my husband Lee met in Germany while both were in the Army in the 1960's and they became more than friends, like brothers. We enjoyed our surprise visit years ago from Karen and Allen all the way to Long Island, New York, and cherish the memory. Allen was a wonderful person and will be in my thoughts and prayers.

I am so very sorry for your loss. I have known Allen over the years. He was a very nice person and seemed to be very involved in helping others. After my Dad passed away in 1992, we were going through pictures and found a pic of Allen with my Dad. They were standing in front of my Dad's 1927 Pontiac, which is when I found out that Allen had purchased the car. Allen helped me contact the person who bought the car from him. It meant so much to me and my family. Allen will be missed by all who knew him. You are all in our thoughts and prayers.

We are so sorry to hear of Allen's passing. MAY HE REST IN PEACE🛐. Dalton always enjoyed his visits at McDonald's. I always watched for him on my way to work in Crowley when he was on his way to Egan.
