Obituary - Charles Ernest Wells

Charles Ernest Wells, age 83, went to be with his heavenly father on Sunday, March 27, 2022. Charles was born on November 23, 1938 in Sioux City, Iowa. He was the son of Leland and Lauretta Wells.

He married Gwendolyn Wells in Lake Mills, Iowa on September 12, 1959. He graduated from the University of Iowa. He worked for AT&T and later worked for Sprint.

He loved his children and grandchildren and enjoyed spending time with them. He is survived by his wife, Gwen and his three children: Tony Wells (Beth), Diane Adelsperger (Bob) and David Wells (Marcia), six grandsons: Andrew Adelsperger (Amelia), Daniel Wells, Seth Adelsperger (Arielle), Reagan Wells, Jonathan Wells and Brian Wells, two sisters: Marilee Adams and Jacqui Smith (Larry). He also had many loving nieces and nephews.

Chuck was an avid reader and loved learning about God’s creation. He enjoyed fishing, rock hunting, genealogy, walking, picking up pecans, and spending time with his family.

Charles was a life-long Christian, baptized as a teenager. His Christian faith was very important in his life and he instilled it in his family. He taught Sunday school for over 25 years. He was a member of several churches, most recently First Baptist Church in Clinton, MO.

The family is planning a service at Vansant-Mills Funeral Home at a later date. In lieu of flowers, the family asks that donations be made to the First Baptist Church (Clinton, MO) in support of the missions fund: “Acts one 8” and can be left in care of the funeral home.

Arrangements have been entrusted to Vansant-Mills Funeral Home in Clinton, Missouri.
