Mr. Welch was born to R.J. Welch and Mirian Boggan Welch on October 05, 1937 in Simpson County, MS.

Troy was a mathematical genius and a great craftsman—he could fix anything and was a master carpenter. He loved horses, particularly Tennessee Walkers. In his spare time, he also enjoyed golfing, gardening, and spending time with his family, especially hunting and fishing with his kids and grandkids. Along with his parents, he was preceded in death by his brother, Joe Welch; nephew, Zack Welch; and daughter, Renee Morgan. He leaves behind his devoted wife of 57 years, Ellen Welch; sons, Nathan (Riki Lin) Welch Jr. of Olive Branch, Berry (Cindy) Welch of Knoxville, TN, and Scott (Deanne) Welch Sr. of Byram; daughter, Melissa (Matt) Allen of Hattiesburg; brothers, Edward (Rita) Welch, Tommy (Kay) Welch, and Mickey (Rhonda) Welch, all of Braxton; eleven grandchildren: Melissa (Matt) Allen, Gregory (Jamie) Welch Jr., Jessica (Cameron) Hutchins, Hunter (Haley) Welch, Conner Welch, Bobby (Jessica) Welch, Troy Nathaniel Welch III, Danielle (Jacob) Latocha, Brandie Correro, Alex Welch, and Morgan Brittany Welch; and ten great-grandchildren: Breelynn Welch, Holland Wilkes, Jasmine Welch, Adam Welch, BrookLynn Powell, JJ Johnson, Lexi Correro, Kamdyn Jackson, and Miller and Brennyn Hutchins.
