Jenaro F. Welsh went home to the Lord on 18 March 2022, surrounded by family and friends. The son of Maria de los Angeles Garcia-Nunez and Carl Edward Welsh, he was born in Gardner, Mass.
Following the path of his grandfather, Magistrado Jenaro Garcia-Nunez, he practiced law for 37 years in Texas, Colorado, New Mexico, and before the Federal bench.
He is survived by his wife, Kathleen Sullivan Welsh; his children, Jennifer Dubreuil (Joshua) and Monroe Maxwell; his grandchildren, Colton, Wesley, Gavin, and Jillian; and his brothers, Carl Edward Welsh (Anne), William Pius Welsh (Jamie), and George Lewis Welsh (Karen); and many cousins and nieces.
Jenaro had the heart of a servant, and spent his life looking for ways to be helpful. He never wasted an opportunity to help—no matter what time it was, how inconvenient it was, or what the cost to him would be—he was always ready to listen and help. He was generous with his time, his money, and his effort. Jenaro was loyal. If he was on your side, there was nothing you could do or say to move him from it. He never gave up on anyone.
His walk with the Lord was a close one. He prayed for his family and friends, clients and colleagues. Jenaro had no enemies, but he prayed for his adversaries. He showed us every day that we “overcome evil with good.” (Rm 21:12)
Jenaro was a gentle soul with a big heart and a ready smile. The world seems a smaller place without him.
