Well known former Middlesboro mayor died this weekend

A well known former Middlesboro mayor died this weekend.

82-year-old Troy Lee Welch died Saturday at Vanderbilt University Medical Center.

Welch was the Middlesboro Mayor from the late 80's to the early 90's.

He was also a veteran.

He played a big role in building the Middlesboro Campus of Southeast Kentucky Community and Technical College.

Loved ones say he will be missed.

“He was a worker. He only chose those things that would help our community and help it grow. He was a participant not a by stander,” Bell County Judge Executive Jennifer Jones said.

Visitation is Tuesday night from 6pm to 8pm at the First Baptist Church in Middlesboro.
