Description:

Daniel Weldon (1944 - 1992), was an active member of Mission Hill community affairs and served on the Mission Hill Planning Commission. His memorial is a steel bench overlooking the playing field in McLaughlin Park. A bronze version of a scali cap, Dan’s favorite choice of headgear, hangs on the arm of the bench and a plaque on the side of the bench reading "Lifelong neighbor and true citizen of Mission Hill" keeps his memory alive. The bench and its ornamentation were designed by sculptor Ross Miller. It was dedicated in 1999.
