Obituary

Robert Wells, passed away peacefully on August 6th, 2020 at the age of 73.  He was born in South Bend, Indiana on August 14, 1946 to Donald and Catherine Wells.  He grew up with his sister, Kathy, in Dania, FL and attended Florida State University.  After receiving his Bachelor of Science and a Masters Degree in Criminal Justice, he was the Director of County Court Probation and was the founder of the State of Florida Victim Assistance Organization.  He was a true advocate for crime victims and their families at the County, State and National level.  He eventually accepted a position at the Federal Law Enforcement Training Center in Brunswick, GA where he worked for over 20 years. 


Robert’s passions were many and he was an avid learner.  He loved cold beer, live music, a good book and exploring new adventurous foods.  His travels brought him from Europe to Thailand and to every state in the US except for 2. After retirement, he was a key contributor on Seeking Alpha, a stock research site and was followed by many for his investment advice.  One of his favorite weekly traditions was meeting his friends at Chick-fil-A for breakfast.  He loved his family. He was a beloved husband, father, grandfather, brother, uncle and friend to many.  


Robert is survived by his love, Eileen; his children, Allison Maucere, Rebecca Price and Sarah Commisso; his 7 grandchildren; his sister, Kathy Pologruto and his 3 nieces.  


A private service will be held at Christ Church on St. Simons Island, GA. 

The family would like to express our thanks for the transplant team at Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville, FL for the excellent care and support over the past couple of years.  If desired, friends and family may make a memorial donation to the Gabriel House of Care who provide housing for transplant patients and their caregivers https://gabrielhouseofcare.org/
