Memorial service Saturday for Conrad Welling

A memorial service will be held at noon Saturday, Aug. 28, at Redwood Chapel, 847 Woodside Road in Redwood City, for Conrad G. Welling, who died Aug. 20. A color guard and a 21-gun salute will be held at Gates of Heaven Cemetery in Los Altos.

Mr. Welling, a resident of Atherton for 51 years, retired from the U.S. Navy and went on to develop another career with Lockheed Missiles and Space. He was an innovator and visionary who formed an industrial partnership, International Minerals Company, to investigate the potential of marine minerals, say family members.

A complete obituary for Mr. Welling will appear in a future issue of The Almanac.
