Thatcher Robb Welker
07/20/2021

St. George, UT – Thatcher Robb Welker, 17, passed away Tuesday, July 20, 2021. He was born March 10, 2004, in Flagstaff, AZ to Ryan Welker and Jennifer Robb.

Thatcher was an unstoppable force of nature who wanted to try everything and do it as big as he could. Just a few of his myriad hobbies included shredding gnar, hitting steezy jumps, staying un-natty at the gym, and firing it up in demon mode…and he usually filmed it! His huge heart and generous spirit could be seen in all aspects of his life, from giving away his old gear to giving his time teaching his little sister to “just send it” at the skatepark. He took his office as a brother seriously, navigating the roles of an older brother, twin brother, and younger brother with a little teasing, love, and sometimes even patience.

Thatcher was an independent, hardworking kid whose drive to achieve was the envy of both family and friends. Through sharing his undeniable excitement for some random fact that he just learned, his sincere and genuine compliments, and his desire to entertain others, he always achieved his goal of making everyone’s day brighter. Thatcher positively influenced every single person that was lucky enough to enter his orbit no matter how briefly. His philosophies on life were poignant, profound, and sometimes straight out of the left-field, but none were truer than his saying, “You always gotta tell the homies you love ‘em because you never know if it’s the last time, you’ll see them!”

He is survived by his mother, Jennifer Robb; his father, Ryan Welker; his older sister, Alexis Welker; his twin sister, Taylor Welker; and his younger sister Tilly Welker.

  1. Thatcher, thanks for leaving such a memorable mark on this earth. You were truly one of a kind. Say hi to great-grandma and grandpa Robb for us.

  2. Thatcher was such a wonderful boy. The thing I remember the most about him is when he passed the sacrament. He was always smiling and happy to be there! So so sorry for your loss!

  5. I love you so much Jen. My heart has broken every day for you since I heard what happened. No mother should ever have to go through this and I can’t imagine what you are feeling. You are surrounded by those who love you, and are here for whatever you need.

  6. I am so very sorry for your tragic loss. Thatcher was an incredible young man. I was very fortunate to be his first grade teacher. He was funny, creative, kind and made our class better because he was a part of it. I have sweet memories of each of your amazing children. I love you all.

  7. I remember him from his younger years, as my oldest played at your house almost everyday. Dusty used to ask me, “Mom, why wasn’t I born a Welker? They are the best family ever!” (Dusty still doesn’t eat much cheese because Taylor said she didn’t like it).

    Thank you for all the fun times and happy memories that we shared as neighbors. Thank you for showing up to the “last minute” birthday parties for my kids, and letting the kids sled down your lawn during the rare snow falls in St.George.

    We love your family, and we are so sad to hear about Thatcher’s passing. We are praying that the Lord will provide peace, love, and guidance during this difficult time.
    Love,
    The Campbell Family
