Robert passed to his heavenly home Saturday, March 19, 2022, under a beautiful sunset while at St. Francis Medical Center downtown. While recently unable to attend services, he was a longtime member of North Monroe Baptist Church. During his years of employment, Robert was a contract salesman for Sears Roebuck.
Robert’s many hobbies included hunting, fishing, coaching, and watching any sport, and cheering for the teams of the SEC. He had an easy-going nature, was a loyal friend, rooted for the “underdog,” and always had a ready smile! Robert was fiercely proud of and passionate about his family. Daddy…Daddy Bear…Papa…Uncle…Robert, you will be greatly missed.
His wife of 48 years, P.K. Wells, and his parents, Elsie and Harold Wells of Oakdale, LA, preceded Robert in death.
