Jack Allen Welch

February 3, 1935 — April 29, 2024

Omaha, Nebraska

Jack was born on February 3, 1935 in Des Moines, IA and died at home on April 29, 2024 in Omaha, NE. He was preceded in death by his parents Charles H. and Leona W. (Hartman) Welch, brother Harold Welch, sister Doris Japhet, and daughter Lynette Battreall.  Jack is survived by his wife of 67 years, (Freida) Carol Welch; sister Wilma Fergus; children Charles Welch, Janis (Raymond) Kyle, and Stacey Nelson; grandchildren Sam Nelson, Mason (Denise) Kyle, Brittany (Bobby) Hrbek, Catherine Kyle, Hunter Battreall, Parker Weilage, Taylor Weilage, and Daniel Vanourney; all of Omaha, as well as several nieces, nephews, and great grandchildren.

Upon graduating high school, Jack enlisted in the US Air Force and served as a photo interpreter specialist at Westover AF Base in MA. Following his military service, he attended the University of Iowa and received a bachelor’s degree in psychology and education. After teaching for several years in Moline, IL he continued his education at the University of Nebraska-Lincoln, where he earned an Ed.S in educational administration. He began his career as an elementary school principal in Carlisle, IA before moving to Omaha, where he was a principal for Westside Community Schools at Paddock Road and then Underwood Hills until he retired.

Jack instilled in his children a love of nature, camping and national parks. For many years he was frequently seen walking through Swanson Arboretum near his home. Additionally, he was interested in crossword puzzles, rocks and gems and enjoyed making jewelry. His grandchildren will remember him for his world class bread making skills. They would walk to his house for lunch every finals week during high school and sometimes brought friends along. They will also remember going to his house for dinner as children and getting TCBY for dessert.  

Private services will be held at Omaha National Cemetery. Memorials suggested to Sunset Hills Baptist Church or the American Brain Tumor Association. Special thanks to his longtime caregiver, Evelyne Digny Aclinou.
