James Michael Welch, a beloved member of the Quincy community, passed away on July 4, 2024. He was born on February 12, 1958, in Wollaston, MA.

James was known as a loving son, brother, husband, uncle, and friend. He is survived by his devoted wife, Dr. Nancy Chung. He is also survived by his siblings: Patricia Holmes and her husband Peter, Edward Welch and his wife Aline, Barbara White and her husband James, and Mary Dacyczyn and her husband David. James leaves behind many nieces and nephews who adored him.

A retired electrician and proud member of Local 103, IBEW, James dedicated his life to his craft and was highly respected within the community. He was also a passionate volunteer for the restoration of the USS Salem and an avid coin collector. James' happy demeanor and charming personality endeared him to all who knew him. His kindness touched the hearts of many who were recipients of his goodwill.

James will be deeply missed but his legacy of warmth, generosity, and joy will continue to live on in the hearts of those who knew him. May he rest in peace.
