I had the distinct pleasure of knowing Weldon from 1967 thru the present. He was my supervisor in the West Building at TI Dallas and our relationship continued in Sherman. We had not communicated much in the last few years. Life just gets busy sometimes. Weldon was a good man and so funny sometimes. Even today, I count him as friend. Bill Wisdom, March 18, 2015 Debbie, Elizabeth and Marci - I just learned of your father's passing Saturday night. I'm so sorry for your loss and sorry we are not there. On behalf of Mom and the rest of us please know you are in our thoughts and prayers. Gena Corley Cegielski, October 31, 2011 There are people you can count as close friends. A person you can rely on in good times and in bad. You know for sure that that he will be there no matter what comes. Weldon was that friend. I will always keep him in my memory as a brother and a friend. Tom Chapman, October 31, 2011 To all the family, I am so sorry for your loss. I worked with Weldon for many years at TI, and then had the good fortune to work with him when he did consultation work for MEMC. For years I couldn't remember his daughters names, he always refered to you as the oldest, the middle and the baby, and he loved you all very much. Weldon was a good friend and a joy to work with. He will be missed. My prayers are with you Jane Barnett, October 30, 2011 Weldon,hired me to work in the west builden, TI, 37 years ago. We all loved him, my prayers are with his family. Anna Canady, October 30, 2011 It was a pleasure to work with and for Weldon at TI. I remember a couple of his sayings. "Old age and treachery beats youth and skill every time" and "a blind hog finds an acorn now and then". He will be greatly missed. Chris Sommerfeldt, October 30, 2011 Just wanted you all to know that I am thinking of you at this time. I know Uncle Weldon is rejoicing in heaven with his Lord and all of his loved ones.
