David R. Welch, age 63, of Trumbull, passed away peacefully on Saturday, December 31, 2022 at St. Vincent's Medical Center after a courageous battle with lung cancer. Born in Sewickley, PA on September 20, 1959, he was a son of Douglas and Gwendolyn (Richards) Welch and was a longtime resident of Trumbull.
Dave loved traveling around the world with his partner Marty and they attended many concerts. He was an extraordinary cook who loved fine wines and hosting dinner parties. He also enjoyed water sports, crossword puzzles, reading and, as a software engineer, programming was his passion.
