Gene was born in Stanley, Iowa. He settled down to raise his family in College Springs, Iowa. He spent the last 18 years in Vilonia, Arkansas where he made many new friends and enjoyed being involved in the Church.

Preceding him in death was his mom and dad (Perry and Sherma Wells), sister Charlyne Anderson, and his Loving wife Sharon Wells.

Survivors are his sister Marlyne Vanvleck; daughter Lisa (Scott) Sump; daughter Kandra Swain; son Larry (Kim) Wells; son Steven Wells; 15 grandchildren; 15 great grandchildren, and many nieces and nephews.

Gene loved drinking coffee and telling stories. He did not know a stranger. He was happy to talk with anyone that would listen. He liked to travel about and work on carpentry. He could literally work on a little bit of anything. He was a Jack of all Trades. Gene had served in the Army from Sept. 1959 - Sept. 1962. Gene had accepted Jesus and dedicated his heart several years back. He frequently talked about meeting Jesus. He finally got the opportunity!!
