Weldon worked for American Desk in Temple before going to work for Sams Manufacturing in Waco where they manufactured church furniture. He worked there for 45 years until he retired.

Weldon had a passion for hunting, fishing and playing horseshoes and was known for one heck of a horseshoe player. He had been a member of the local “Central Texas Horseshoe Pitcher’s Association” of Waco. He also loved his polka and waltz music that he danced to all the time. He was a lifelong member of SPJST Lodge 66, Waco. He devoted his time and talents to the betterment of the organization.

Loved your daddy so much! So thankful to Jane and Thomas for bringing him to NC so I could show him Looking Glass Falls. So many wonderful memories of summer vacations in your back yard. Our dads and moms laughing together while watching us all play together. Uncle Weldon said goodbye here and hello in heaven where I’m sure mama and daddy and all the family on the other side were happy to see him.
