It is with sadness that we announce the passing of Richard Wells of Blairmore, AB on February 6, 2018 at the Crowsnest Pass Health Care Centre, Blairmore, AB. He was 82 years of age.
Richard was born on August 6, 1935 in Maple Creek, SK. He was raised with a strong sense of duty, which led him to enlist in the military – something he was very proud of. Later, that same sense of duty prompted him to become a member of the Canadian Corp. of Commissionaires where he continued to safeguard those under his care. Richard made the Cowsnest Pass his home in 1991 and soon became a valued member of the community.
Richard was a devoted husband, father, grandfather and friend who cherished time spent with his loved ones. In his free time, Richard enjoyed doing puzzles, going fishing and travelling – particularly to Hawaii. His caring, dependable nature will be missed by all who knew him.
Left to mourn his passing and celebrate his life are his children, Rick (Denise) Wells of Newbrook, AB; Carl Delzer of Calgary, AB, Kevin (Linn) Delzer of Edmonton, AB, Roberta King of Victoria, BC and daughter, Jinnie (Garnet) Kundert; his many cherished grandchildren; as well as his extended family and numerous friends.
He was predeceased by his first wife, Jean and his second wife, Marsha.
