Steven Charles Welch died on January 26, 2016, in Aquilla, Texas. He leaves behind his beloved wife, Lorie, and his precious children, Ransom and Copeland.

Steve was a groundbreaker, leader and innovator in the commercial flooring industry. He founded and led Woodwright Hardwood Floor Company, headquartered in Dallas. With an acclaimed portfolio reaching beyond Texas to a national and international clientele, Steve had the honor of being involved in such prestigious projects as the George W. Bush Presidential Library, Kimbell Art Museum, Tobin Center for Performing Arts, and Winspear Opera House. Steve was respected and admired by his employees, and had a profound effect on their lives.

Steve believed his most important role was as a husband and a father. He married his soulmate, Lorie Burnette Welch, who brought endless joy and light to his life. Lorie and Steve built a beautiful, faith-filled family together. There was no father more proud of a son and a daughter than Steve. His greatest joy in life was his time on the ranch with his wife and kids. His sweetness, positive attitude, sense of humor and determination live on in his wonderful children.

Steve fought a courageous battle with cancer.
