Glen N. Wells Jr.

June 19, 1929-February 18, 2013

Glen N. Wells Jr., passed away peacefully on Feb. 18, 2013.

He was born on June 19, 1929, to Glen and Violet (Cross) Wells Sr., in Akron, Ohio. Glen’s family later moved to Mannington, where he grew up.

In 1947, Glen joined the U.S. Air Force. In 1953, Glen married his sweetheart, Pat Walker, and then they were transferred to Mountain Home Air Force Base in Elmore, Idaho. In 1962, they welcomed their son, Jeff.

After several tours of duty, Glen moved his family to Spokane, Wash., and retired from the USAF as a master sergeant.

After retiring, he began his second career with the U.S. Postal Service. After a long and enjoyable career, Glen retired as postmaster.

Glen enjoyed many things in life, which included the American Legion, VFW, Eagles and Elks. In 1988-1989, Glen became the exalted ruler of the Elks.

Glen’s favorite retirement pastime and passion was fishing, and it didn’t matter whether it was freshwater or saltwater.

Glen is survived by his son, Jeff; sister, Joann Sawyer, both from Spokane, Wash.; and a niece and nephews whose families live in Rathdrum, Idaho. Glen also has relatives in Mannington, and Poplar Bluff, Mo.

A memorial service with military honors will be held at 1 p.m. Saturday, March 9, in the Hazen and Jaeger Valley Colonial Chapel, 1306 N. Pines Road, Spokane Valley, Wash.

Flowers and/or cards may be sent to Hazen and Jaeger Valley Funeral Home for the service. Thank you all.

  • Nuke-arms grade stock has been cut by Iran

    Iran has converted three quarters of a nuclear stockpile that it could have turned quickly into weapons-grade uranium into less volatile forms and is well on the way toward transforming the rest, the U.N. atomic agency reported Thursday.
    The development — agreed to by Iran under a nuclear deal it struck late last year with six world powers — leaves Tehran with substantially less of the 20-percent enriched uranium that it would need for a nuclear warhead.
