Obituary for Bret Weldele

Bret Lawrence Weldele, 53, passed away Friday, October 5.
Bret was born June 9, 1965, in Billings, MT, to Dallas and Donna (LaQua) Weldele. He and his younger brother, Mark, grew up in Billings and graduated from Billings West High. Bret met his forever love, Glenda Romey, in 1994. Bret and Glenda were blessed with one son, Seth Daniel Weldele. Seth and granddaughter, Lyla Danielle Weldele, were his greatest joy.
While Bret held many jobs in his life, his true passion and skill were in welding and fabricating.
His favorite hobbies included camping, fishing, hiking, shooting, riding his bike, and panning for gold. Bret was always most at peace in the beautiful Montana mountains. Bret passed along his trade skills to Seth in many hours spent together in the garage, tinkering, welding and creating enhanced motorized “toys”. He and Seth shared a special fondness for fireworks. Bret enjoyed the many hours spent watching Seth play sports. Bret had wonderful memories of camping and time spent with maternal grandparents, Lawrence and Sophie LaQua, during his youth. Bret was especially proud of caring for Sophie in her final years.
Bret was preceded in death by his father, Dallas, paternal grandparents, George and Myrtle Weldele, maternal grandmother, Hazel Conway, and maternal grandparents, Lawrence and Sophie LaQua.
Bret is survived by his mother, Donna, soulmate, Glenda, son Seth, granddaughter Lyla, brother Mark (Holly), nephew Cameron, and numerous aunts, uncles, and cousins.
Bret will be greatly missed by his friends and large extended family.
Visitation will be from 8:00am to 8:00pm Thursday, October 11 and 8:00am to 1:00pm Friday, October 12 at Smith Funeral Chapel, 925 South 27th Street, Billings, MT. A celebration of Bret’s life will be held at 1:00pm, Friday, October 12 at Smith Funeral Chapel with a reception to follow.
