A loving father, son, brother and friend, Billy Welborn passed away Saturday, March 13, 2021 at Our Lady of the Lake Hospital at age 54. Billy retired a Lieutenant in the Burglary Division from the East Baton Rouge Sheriff’s Office last year after 30 years of service, having worked in uniform patrol in his earlier years. His colleagues often noted his professionalism and care for others. Billy’s hospitality and generosity were legendary. He took pride in cooking and hosting events for family and friends, with LSU football and crawfish seasons especially lively around his place. Anyone who knew Billy certainly experienced his love of history. In his unassuming manner, he often amazed those around him with his knowledge of facts and dates, with a special emphasis on law enforcement. But these same people who were fortunate enough to know Billy know that his greatest love was for his family. Left to cherish his memory are his life partner Candice Pedeaux and her children Cadence and Cruz, who he loved; their precious daughter, Piper Welborn; his beloved son, Colby Welborn; parents, John and Anna Mae Welborn; brothers John “Coker” Welborn, Jr., Doug Welborn, Wade Welborn and Jimmy Welborn (wife Tammy), who entered the world with Billy on December 1, 1966 as triplets along with their sister Darlene Anne, who preceded him to Heaven after only three hours on earth. He is also survived by niece Erica Welborn Malone (husband Ryan); niece Lindsey Welborn; nephew Blake Welborn; niece Skylar Welborn; great nephew Gabriel Malone; great nieces Dulcie and Juniper Malone and numerous cousins. So many family members and friends who loved Billy were with him every step of the way as he valiantly battled health challenges in recent years, including his lifelong friends Jay Buhler and wife Kristi, Chris Reily and wife Joy and Steve Seabolt and wife Megan. The family extends its gratitude to the many health care professionals who provided comfort and care. Billy’s presence will be missed by so many along with the love, kind spirit, humor and strength for which he was known, but peace and comfort come in knowing that his earthly struggles have become heavenly rewards. A private service will be held on Friday at Central Funeral Home, followed by a public committal at Resthaven Gardens of Memory, 11817 Jefferson Hwy, Baton Rouge, LA 70816, at 1:30 pm. Live streaming of the private service will be available on Central Funeral Home's facebook page. Central Funeral Home is in charge of arrangements.

I was lucky to share Billy's growing-up with his family in the early years. Only present health problems have kept me from seeing Anna May and John during this sad time as they have been my strength at difficult times in the past. My thoughts and prayers are with all the Welborns.

I am so sorry for your loss... was so sad to hear this sad news. I love the Welborn family and will be praying for all of you. The years I spent dating Jimmy was also time spent with Billy and typically the rest of the family.... a lot of good memories with a wonderful family. Y’all are in my thoughts.

In 1999 I Transferred into Armed Robbery and Burglary Division from Narcotics. Me and Billy worked a lot of nights together and many cases together. During this time we formed a bond and it stayed strong until the end. I will always cherish my friendship with him. Billy was the most kindest person I have known. He was always there when someone needed something. I will miss our conversations that we would have. And I will miss him. He was a True Friend.

First, my prayers go out to the family, and secondly "Billy" will truly be missed. It didn't matter what I called him about, he was always kind and pleasant. He always showed concern in what was needed, and went far and beyond to make sure it was done. Also, every time he would call into Communications for a file number,
he would always ask how I was doing and concluded the call with something funny and a thank you.

Rest in peace my friend, we know you are in a better place and one day we shall meet again.
