Welton and Mildred moved to Zachary from Bogalusa in the late 50’s. He worked in the papermill industry for approximately 20 years making many lifelong friends. It was there that he was given the nickname “Wick”. Following that he worked for several tire/mechanic shops until he and Mildred opened Pierce Automotive which was truly a family run business along with their four children. Wick was raised as a Master Mason over 50 years ago at Plains Lodge #135, Free and Excepted Masons where he served as Master in 1976 and 1994. He was also a Shriner being a long-time member of Baton Rouge Shrine. During this time, he also worked to support the Shriners Clown Unit. He and Mildred loved their time spent on their motorcycles as members of the Goldwing Rider’s Assoc. Through this organization they participated in many fund raisers supporting St Jude’s Children’s Hospital. They also participated in organized rides to hand deliver and present the donations.

In lieu of flowers donations can be made in his memory to The Shriner’s Children Hospital. The family will forever be grateful to all those who were involved in finding Wick, either through your actions or your prayers.
