Robert Alan Wells was called by our Lord to the Kingdom of Heaven on May 10, 2018.

Bob was a devoted husband, father, brother and educator.  He was a lifelong Social Studies teacher at United Middle School in Laredo, Texas, and had retired in 2016.

Bob lived for his music and his road trips with his wife and son. For many summers, he enjoyed traveling throughout California and had a special love for the city of San Fransisco. Bob had a special place in his heart for the Oakland A’s, Dallas Cowboys, Milwaukee Bucks, and the Chicago Blackhawks, all of which he looked forward to attending while on his road trips.

Chulo, as he was lovingly called, played hard, loved hard, taught hard, and more recently fought hard.

He is survived by his wife of 28 years, Rachel Munoz Wells, his son, Dylon P. Wells.  He is also survived by his sister Carol (Joe) McCulloch, Diana (John) Diehl, Bonnie Moore, and brother Steven (Anna Enriquez) Wells. He is preceded in death by his loving parents, Ret. Col. Patrick Gordon Wells and Marianna Wells. He is also survived by numerous nieces and nephews, and many other relatives and friends.

Bob will be deeply missed by his friends, family, and all who knew him.

A celebration of his life is scheduled for Saturday, May 12, 2018, at 5:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. at Fred Dickey Funeral & Cremation Services, with a rosary to follow at 7:15 p.m.

Please accept my heartfelt condolences on the loss of your loved one. In the Bible, a man named Job raised the question: If an able-bodied man dies can he live again? Then he answered: I shall wait [in the grave] until my relief comes. [God] will call, and I myself shall answer. (Job 14:14, 15) What a joy it will be when that time arrives and the dead are reunited with their loved ones. Please visit for more bible based information.

Bob had a profound impact on my life, and from reading the memorials and tributes, it's obvious that I'm not the only one. I loved reconnecting a few years ago and seeing the love he and Rachel shared for each other and the love he had for Dylon and how very happy he was. Just purely happy. He was truly one of a kind--uniquely himself, both hilarious and thoughtful. He made the world better during his time here. My heart goes out to Rachel, Dylon, his sisters, brother and friends. I am praying for peace for all who loved him.

Sorry for your loss. The Bible gives condolence in difficult moments like this one. Revelation or Apocalypse 21:4 says that “God will wipe out all tears from eyes and death will be no more”. Acts 24:15 talks about “a resurrection”. Jehovah God soon will clean this earth from all bad including death.

My daughter, Andy, shared the news of Mr. Wells passing on Friday and she wanted to make sure his family knew how much Mr. Wells was loved and admired. He was my daughters 8th grade teacher during his last year at UMS. He signed her yearbook next to his picture and it is a memory my daughter is very fond of and holds dearly to her heart. On behalf of the Jimenez Family, please accept our most sincere condolences.

Rachel, it’s Cheli Linda’s sister. I am so sorry over your husband’s passing. I certainly remember him and was so sad when Linda told me that he was very sick. There are no words but I know that all the loving memories you have will ease your loss and bring you peace and comfort as you remember Bob. My prayers are with you during this difficult time.

To Rachel & son Dylan, Our hearts, thoughts & prayers are with you at this time. My son, Mikey was a student of Bob's when he attended UMS. He always enjoyed his Soc.Stud. Class. I enjoyed having Mr. Wells visit my Art Class, when he had a chance. It was wonderful for him to see his kidoes perform in my class. I admire teachers like him for showing his caring for kids! We will miss him, always. He's in a better place with God. May the Lord bless him, you & family. With love always to you, Rachel & Dylan, Angie Gomez(UMS Art Teacher) & Mikey (son)

Dear Rachel & Dylon It was with heavy heart that I heard of Bob's passing. He had such a zest for life and gave it his all. And since I can not be with you in person, I am sending you all my love and prayers and ask God to help you both during this very difficult time. God Bless.

Mrs. Wells, I’m deeply sorry about the loss of Mr. Wells. As you grieve, know that you all are in my thoughts and prayers. May God bless you always. “Blessed are those who mourn, for they will be comforted”. ~ Matthew 5:4

To the family and friends of Bob Wells, My heart has been aching, since I learned of Bob's passing. While I was never given the blessing of knowing Bob personally, I was given another blessing: knowing and being able to work alongside his son, Dylon, on the South TX independent wrestling scene. It is through that blessing that I was able to know of the characteristics Bob Wells possessed: a dedicated and passionate man who loved life and his family, as well as his profession, to the fullest. From having worked alongside Dylon, I know Dylon has those same characteristics as Bob did. I cannot thank Bob and his wife, as well as their families, enough for raising such a loving, hard-working, and passionate individual who - through his help, talks, and encouragement - has played a role in where I am today professionally. I know Bob, and the family, are proud of who Dylon has become and all of his accomplishments. The life and legacy of Bob Wells will live on, through his family, friends, Dylon's career on the South TX independent wrestling scene, others who've been impacted by him - whether it's former co-workers, students, or people like me who've worked with his son and see Bob's light in him. Bob's battle with cancer encouraged me. Because, while fighting the disease bravely, he continued to live life, while loving and being a light to those around him. I pray I follow Bob's example, as I keep living life. He is now in Heaven, beaming with a smile that radiates pride and joy, because of the life, family, and impact he made while on earth. On behalf of my families, our love, prayers and deepest condolences go out to the Wells and Munoz families during this difficult time. Te quiero mucho, mi amigo Dylon!
