April 3, 1937 - October 11, 2017
Francis E Wellock age 80 of Wynnewood and Avalon, NJ, died on Wed. October 11, 2017. Beloved husband of 55 years to Barbara (nee Kehoe) and devoted father of Frank Wellock, Jr (Carolyn), Greg Wellock, Brian Wellock, Elizabeth Wellock, and Daniel Wellock (Heather): also survived by 7 grandchildren Ryan, Colin, Brennan, Emma, Hadley, Finley and Danny and his brother Charles Wellock (Patricia), sister-in-law Betsy Mooney (John), brother-in-law Tom Kehoe (Bernice) and over 20 nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by his parents, William and Marie Wellock; brother William A Wellock (Peggy) and sister, Theresa Dodd (Ed). Growing up in West Philadelphia, Frank was a proud 1955 graduate of St. Tommy For Ever More! He graduated from Saint Joseph’s University and received his MBA at Drexel University. Frank started his career with Philco Ford in the 60’s and remained with the surviving entities for over 40 years ending as the Ethics Director for over 10,000 employees at Lockheed Martin. He also taught Accounting at the night school of Saint Joseph’s University for over 18 years. Frank was an avid fan of St Joe’s and Notre Dame Basketball with passion only exceeded by the players on the court...which was clearly heard by the referees! Frank also served as the Alumni President at his alma mater Saint Joseph’s University, served on many committees, enjoyed awarding scholarships and facilitated many grants and donations. Frank thoroughly enjoyed his summers spent down at the Jersey Shore in Avalon for the last 44 years and enjoyed the time spent with family and friends that came down to visit. Although not much of a beach goer, his toes were definitely in the sand when his grandchildren came for a visit. The family will receive guests on Sunday evening from 6-8 pm in the Chadwick & McKinney Funeral Home, 30 E. Athens Ave. Ardmore, PA and after 9am Mon. morning Oct 16th in Presentation BVM Church, 240 Haverford Rd., Wynnewood, followed by his Funeral Mass at 10am. Burial Calvary Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, contributions may be made in his memory to the L. Robert Juckett or William T. Walsh Scholarship c/o Saint Joseph’s University, 5600 City Avenue, Philadelphia, PA 19131 or to St. Thomas More Scholarship Fund, PO Box 294, Drexel Hill, PA 19026.
