Remembering Jimmy "Trophy B****" Welsh
12/27/2012

Love, Thoughts & Prayers for the Welsh Family & Team Typhoon

Jimmy Welsh aka "Trophy B****" was a man that many of us loved & adored. There are so many things and so many stories about this man that we can go on forever and never have a bad thing to say. Jimmy truly had a heart of gold.

Jimmy was big a part of Offshore Racing and was a part of so many people's adventures. He always seemed to be everywhere all the time helping everyone. It is safe to say that no one ever walked away from Jimmy without a smile on their face. You may have walked away shaking your head, but "YES" it was always with a smile and probably a laugh too. Jimmy will be missed greatly by all.

Services will take place from 10 am - noon, Friday, December 28, 2012 at the Boylan Funeral Home, 10 Wooding Ave., Edison; family and friends are invited to visit the family on Friday from 10 am to noon.

Following the service, friends and family are invited to the Raritan River Boat Club, 20 Player Ave., Edison, NJ for a celebration of Jimmy's life. Please bring any photos of "Trophy *****" to post on the board.
