In memory of
Charles Wells
Charles David Wells, 26, died May 2, 2011, in Anchorage. Charles was born in Anchorage Sept. 19, 1984. He grew up and attended grade school here. He had the opportunity to live in Hong Kong for a year as a foreign exchange student during his junior year of high school. He went to school for four years in Pennsylvania at the Milton Hershey School. Charles completed two years of college. He served our country for four years during his active duty in the U.S. Army, where he received a special award for his good conduct. He was a member of the Theta Xi Fraternity and a Carnegie Mellon Alumni. Charles loved the art of communication and practiced debate. He was interested in politics, philosophy and technology and was an avid reader. Charles is survived by his mother, Theresa Sweaney; father, Robert Dean Wells; brother, Robert Daniel Wells; sister, Christine Wells Baue and family; grandmother, Jeanne Wells; aunt, Brenda Wells; grandparents, Charles and Judith Sweaney; grandmother, Elizabeth McAleavey; and aunts, uncles and cousins. His family says of him: "Charles was child-like in his openness to the world around him, his loyalty to those he loved, and his passion for learning. His heart was pure and tender, perhaps too much for this world. Although sorely missed, his family is happy his soul has found rest in the arms of God." In lieu of flowers, the family would like donations made to the National Alliance for Mental Illness, P.O. Box 243302, Anchorage 99524. A graveside service with honors was held for him May 6, 2011, at 1:30 p.m. at Fort Richardson National Cemetery. Funeral arrangements are with Legacy Funeral Homes, Bragaw Chapel.
