Gary 'Doc' Welt

It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Gary "Doc" Welt in Seminole, Florida on 08 April 2014 following a valiant fight against ALS.

Doc was a graduate of BUD/S Class 109 on 26 September 1980 in Coronado, and served in SEAL Teams TWO, FOUR and EIGHT as well as instructor tours at the John F Kennedy Special Warfare Center and the Naval Special Warfare Center.

In a message from Gary's wife, Brenda:

Gary's Memorial Service will be held on April 25th, 2014 at United States Special Operations Command on MacDill Airforce Base, Florida. Service begins at 11:00 am. Arrangements are being made regarding admission onto the base. Will let everyone know as soon as possible. Please pass this on to teammates and friends. Thank you all again for your love, support and prayers! Respectfully, Brenda

We will forward any updates to the above information as soon as we receive it.
