We thank Mike for posting the following on the website to let us know about Herb. Its with a heavy heart that I post this message to let you know that my father, Herbert Welch passed away this morning, 7/4/2020. He was my best friend and my worst pain in my side. I will miss him very much. Dad helped Bob and I finish all most 70 champions. Dad started beagling in 1959 just running sanction trials. His latest champion just finished two weeks ago, Sunshine Lady Dee Dee. Thanks to all the beaglers that helped my Dad at the trials.
Herb Welch of Cold Stream Beagles belonged to Maryland, Delsea and Salem County. We thank him for his years of support and dedication to our sport. Rest in Peace and you will live on thru the many memories and stories of years past.
Those we love don't go away
They walk beside us everyday
unseen, unheard, but always near
still loved, still missed and very dear
