G. Lloyd Wellnitz, 92, passed away at Charlotte Hungerford Hospital on November 3, 2020, four days after the passing of his beloved wife of 55 years, Doris (Von Tobel) Wellnitz.

Lloyd was born on July 21, 1928, at Waterbury Hospital, the son of Emma Drumm Wellnitz. Lloyd was a Litchfield High School graduate and attended Syracuse University. He proudly served as a Staff Sergeant in the United States Air Force, stationed at Sheppard Air Force Base in Wichita Falls, TX. He worked as a self-employed Graphic Designer for 23 years, retiring in 1993.

Lloyd was one of the founding members of Paint with Friends at the Litchfield Community Center and was a member of the American Legion Post 27 and the United Methodist Church Litch-field. He was an avid violinist, viola player, piano player and was an exceptional artist; especial-ly paintings, drawings and portraits. An excellent woodworker, he enjoyed making furniture and toys and was an inventor of “contraptions.” Lloyd loved dogs, the outdoors and cutting fire-wood but most of all he was a huge family man with a big sense of humor and was always the life of the party.

Lloyd is survived by his daughter, Amy Abramson of Torrington; his son and daughter-in-law, Greg and Deana Wellnitz of Torrington; his granddaughter, Lindsey Fitzpatrick and husband, Thomas, of Torrington; his great granddaughter, Evelyn Fitzpatrick of Torrington; dear friends, Jerry and Pat Hornak of New Preston; and 13 nieces and nephews.

A Graveside service with Military Honors will be held on Friday, November 6, 2020 at 1:00pm at West Cemetery, Whites Wood Road, Litchfield. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be sent to Litchfield Hills Chore Service

I will always and forever cherish my friendship with Lloyd and Doris. We talked by phone often when it became impossible to meet in person. Lloyd was an artist who inspired my creativity and I am grateful for the group Paint with Friends that he started. I know that Lloyd and Doris are in a place of perfect peace, health, joy and love.
Do not stand at my grave and weep,
I am not there I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow,
I am a diamond's glint on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripening grain
I am the gentle Autumn's rain/
When you awake in the morning's hush
I am the sweet uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry.
I am not there.
I did not die.

So sorry to hear about your mom and dad.

Lloyd and I met in The Litchfield Community Center at a "Paint with Friends" gathering. He would share hie experiences in the Air Force with me. In particular he was proud to be the last man to walk on the wings of a B 36 bomber. That wingspan was 230 ft. He once explained that I could remember his birthday easily because it was the anniversary of the first battle of Bull Run, which in itself was the first battle of the Civil War. Lloyd always had amusing stories to relate and never failed to educe a chuckle from me. I will always remember him as a great guy.

Amy and Greg, I am so sorry to read of both your parents passing so soon. I guess your dad couldn’t live without your mom. I have many memories of your dad, especially, from all the years we knew each other and worked together. He truly was a character. Your mom was a true lady. I’ve thought of them often. Any, I’d love to chat with you. Give me a call. My number is in the book.
