Robert Welter

June 4, 1950 — May 23, 2024

Lorain

Robert D. Welter, 73, of Lorain, died Thursday, May 23, 2024, at Cleveland Clinic in Avon following a year-long illness.

Born June 4, 1950, in Lorain, Robert was a man of many talents. He graduated from Lorain High School in 1968 and Akron University in 1975.  His journey led him to Brooklyn, New York, where he wholeheartedly pursued his passion for theater and drama.  As a remarkable mime, he traveled the country, leaving his mark on every stage he graced.  Even after transitioning to a career in real estate, his love for the arts never waned. In 2020, he returned to Lorain, continuing to serve the community as a realtor with Howard Hanna.

Robert was a member of St. Mary Catholic Church in Lorain. His love for singing in the church choir was only matched by his infectious sense of humor.  He was best known for his fun-loving nature and his ability to bring a smile to everyone's face.

He will be deeply missed by many, including a person he lovingly referred to as his stepdaughter, Stephanie Toppi of New York; his dear sisters, Bonnie (James) Hite of Elyria and Nancy (Scott) Zipp of Vermilion; and several nieces and nephews.

He was preceded in death by his parents, Norbert and Betty (nee Carney) Welter, and a sister, Gail Ryan.

The family will receive friends on Tuesday from 4:00 – 7:00 p.m. in the Dovin Funeral and Cremation Specialists, 2701 Elyria Avenue, Lorain. Funeral services will be on Wednesday at 9:30 a.m. in the funeral home, followed by mass at 10:00 a.m. at St. Mary Catholic Church, 309 W. 7th Street, Lorain.  Rev. Daniel O. Divis, pastor, will officiate.  Burial will follow in Calvary Cemetery, Lorain.
