David was born on Friday, Sept 23, 1966, in Roswell NM to parents Victor Wayne Welch and Jo Jean (Lemons) Welch. David is a graduate of Brewer High School, class of 85. After high school, David went on to attend Oklahoma Baptist University. David grew up loving baseball and became a student of the game. He played baseball for both Brewer High School and OBU. David’s love for baseball carried him to many summers to Chandler Baseball Camp as a camper, then a camp counselor and rising to his dream of coaching at the camp. His passion was teaching the game of baseball to anyone who would listen. Later in life, David entered the service/hospitality field. Often you would find him valeting or driving the shuttle bus from the Marriott to the airport.
David had a very kind heart for helping others. He would literally give you the shirt off his back or his last dollar. He loved people. He was a die-hard Arkansas Razorback fan. On game day you could hear him calling the hogs. WOOOO PIG SOOIE!!! He will be greatly missed by all who knew him.
