Sr. Saginaw, Michigan Our beloved husband, father, grandfather, great grandfather, brother, uncle and dear friend passed away peacefully on Tuesday, March 9, 2021 at Covenant HealthCare - Cooper, surrounded by his family. He was 83 years old. John William Wells was born on May 5, 1937 in Toledo, Ohio to the late John B. and Virgie Mae (Jarvis) Wells.
