Lukas Welsch

Ware Shoals – Lukas Michael Welsch, 29, of Indian Mound Road, entered into eternal rest on July 16, 2022.

Born in Niskayuna, NY, he was a son of Bernadine Stanton Payton and the late Harold A. Welsch. He was of the Baptist Faith, a graduate of Ware Shoals High School, and his goal in life was to make people laugh and raise his two boys. Lukas was a devoted father and son. He loved his trucks, motorcycles, and working on junk in general. Lukas touched many souls and always left a lasting impression with his genuine spirit. Lukas will be greatly missed by all.

Surviving are his mother and step-father, Michael and Bernadine Payton, his maternal grandmother, Nadine S. Stanton, his girlfriend, Kala McClinton, two sons, Christopher H. Welsch and Dawson T. Welsch, three brothers, Jason M. Payton (Erika), Joseph A. Rogers (Gabrielle), Jacob W. Welsch (Heidi), a sister, Stacy Jones, and special friends, Daquan Agnew and Chris Watts.

He was pre-deceased by his father, and a sister, Colleen M. Rogers.
