This biography from the Archives of AskART:
Following is the artist's obituary of Morris, O'Connor & Blute Funeral Homes, South Yarmouth, Massachusetts.

South Harwich – Milton H. Welt died peacefully at home on Saturday, October 1, 2011, just sixteen days following the death of Barbara, his loving wife of 74 years.

Born in Everett, Massachusetts on April 17, 1914, Milton was raised in Wallaston. He was the son of the late Jenny P. Wilson Welt and Howard L. Welt, and brother of the late Ruth Grant, of Florida, formerly of Chatham, who died earlier this year.

Milton leaves his three daughters, Drusilla Sunderman (Herb), of Centerville, MA, Elizabeth Wetherbee, of Lowell, MA, and Susan Lindholm (Carl) of Sandwich, MA, eight grandchildren; Susan Lumenello, (Kelly), of Jamaica Plain, Scott Lumenello (Pam), of Worcester, Guy Wetherbee (Kerri), of Atkinson, NH, Dean Wetherbee, (Janet) of Amesbury, MA, Amy Roemer (John) of Hales Corners, WI, Jeffrey Lindholm, (Akiko) of Somerville, Brett Lindholm (Corey), of Plymouth, and Mark Lindholm (Shea) of Qualicum Beach, V.I., British Columbia. He was also the great grandfather of Stephany and Sarah Lumenello, Benjamin, Isabel and Jackson Wetherbee, Helen Roemer, Jacob and Lillian Lindholm, and Eric Lindholm. Milton also leaves several cousins and two nephews and their families.

A 1932 graduate of Thayer Academy in Braintree, Milton also attended North Yarmouth Academy in Yarmouth, Maine. He was a graduate of the Keith Parrish School of Art in Portland, and studied with watercolorists Carleton Plummer, Claude Croney and Betty Lou Schlemm.

Milton spent the happy summers of his youth on Cousins Island, sailing the waters of Casco Bay, off Yarmouth, Maine. Following his marriage to Barbara in 1937, they lived in Portland, and Braintree, and in 1949, moved their family to South Harwich, where they began their 62 year relationship with Pilgrim Congregational Church in Harwich Port, and with the many friends they made in Harwich and on Cape Cod. Over the years, the family quintet sang at the church and produced many musical shows for church benefits. Milton was an usher and Deacon of the church, and also sang in the choir for many years.

Milton loved the Town of Harwich, and over the years he served as chairman of the Board of Selectman and Assessors, and was proud of his work with the Harwich Conservation Commission. He had been the Executive Director of the Cape Cod Planning and Economic Development Commission, and Assistant Register of Deeds for Barnstable County. He also served as a Corporator and on the Board of Investment for the Cape Cod Five Cents Savings Bank.

A life long artist, Milton is best known for capturing the beauty of the architecture, landscape, beaches, harbors, lighthouses, marshes and dunes of Cape Cod through his art. His media included oil, acrylic and pen and ink, but his passion was watercolor. His work is part of the permanent collection at the Cape Cod Museum of Art, the Cape Cod Five Cent Savings Bank, and many private and corporate collections worldwide. An award winning artist, he was a member of the Cape Cod Art Association, the Chatham Creative Arts Center, and the International Society of Marine Painters. He was one of the founding members of the Guild of Harwich Artists, and one of the original artists featured at the 820 Main Gallery in Harwich where his work is on display and where he worked until recently when his health declined.

The family would like to express their sincere thanks to dear friends Chuck and Dona Spillane, Sue Lilly, and to Jennifer Putnam and her team for their loving support and care of both Barbara and Milton during the past year. The work of Hospice of Cape Cod has been very much appreciated as well during the past few months.

A memorial service will be held on Sunday, October 16th at 2 pm at Pilgrim Congregational Church, Route 28 Harwich Port. Reception will follow in Monbleau Hall
