A Celebration of the Life of David Wells will be held at 11 a.m. on Saturday, July 14, at Ducey Gymnasium, followed by a reception at the Marian Miner Cook Athenaeum. The officiant will be the Rev. Doug Edwards of St. Ambrose Episcopal Church.
The service and reception are open to the public, and attendance by the CMS community is especially welcome. David's family includes Jodie Burton and their fine sons, John, 17, Todd, 15, and Michael 13; his father and step-mother, John F. and Lois Wells of Sonoma; and his siblings, James Wells, Farmington, California; Robert Wells, Albany, California; Timothy Wells and Mary Wells Cutone, both of Burbank; and Jane Wells, Vancouver, Washington. David's mother, Mary Elizabeth Wells, died in 1974.
The Wells family suggests donations to the CMS-Wells Classic, Bauer Center, 500 E. Ninth Street, Claremont 91711-6400, in lieu of flowers.
Your expressions of concern and support are appreciated by the Wells family. During this difficult time, I hope we will hold close to the splendid spirit, tenacity, humor, and heart of David Wells that make him an irreplaceable member of our community.
