Obituary

My sweet dad, Arthur Weldon, passed peacefully in our home in the early hours of July 15th at the age of 95. He was born in San Pedro, CA on March 25th, 1925 to Everett Weldon and Anna Cohen. He is in heaven now with his high school sweetheart and wife of 76 years, Evelyn, their little girl Susie and his beloved mother, Anna. He had a meaningful and happy life filled with love and quality time with family and friends.

Art was a brave and highly decorated WW2 Army veteran of the Third Infantry Division, being awarded among many other medals, The Purple Heart, Bronze Star and French Fouragere. He worked for 30 years for the Naval Air Rework Facility at North Island starting as a draftsman and ending his career as an engineering lab supervisor. But home was where his heart was. He was a long time member of St. Therese Parish and the Knights of Columbus in Del Cerro. During his retirement he volunteered at Mercy Hospital, RSVP (Retired Seniors Volunteer Patrol ) and donated generously to the poor in third world countries for whom he had a special place in his heart. He and my mom also enjoyed many wonderful trips around the world together and with friends.

He leaves behind his daughter Francine Poirier (Mike), Grandsons Ted Poirier (Heather), Brian Poirier, Great grandsons Ben Poirier and James Poirier (Cori), Ben and James’ mom, Amy Crites, and many beloved Mero nieces and nephews and Kuslo cousins. His ashes will be interned with full military honors at Miramar National Cemetery along with Evelyn’s.

His funeral Mass will be held at St. Therese Parish at a later date. There is a deep void in our hearts but we are comforted knowing he is with the God who was his foundation and strength and that our sweet “Tutus” are together now and watching over the family they lived for.

It was with great sadness I learned of Art’s passing. Although he and I never met personally, we have internet buddies for 20 years. I first met Art while doing research on my Great-uncle who died in WWII and Art was in the same Division in the Army as was my uncle. He was the very first WWII veteran to ever help me out with my search and he is the last of dozens veterans I knew through my research. I knew something was wrong when he didn’t respond to my emails. He taught me so much not only about WWII and his time in the Army, but life itself. I think we only talked on the phone one time in 20 years, but we sent each other hundreds of emails over the years. He was very instrumental in me finding a veteran, in 2003, who was a good friend of my Great Uncle’s and was there when he was killed. That vet, and I, were best friends until his death in 2008. But, Art was always there for me, to give me advice and be a long distance pal and buddy. I will miss him greatly and his family has my deepest condolences. He was a great guy all the way around and I’m sure he is with his beautiful wife, Evelyn. He will be missed.
