Aubrey (Joe) Joseph Colin Wells

Wells, Aubrey “Joe” Joseph Colin born July 16, 1937 in Belleoram, Fortune Bay, Newfoundland, peacefully passed away, February 20, 2002 at his home in Courtenay, B.C.

Aubrey, as his family knew him, “Joe” as his friends knew him, is predeceased by his father in WWII and his son Joey in 1974.

He is survived by his mother Laura, brother George (Betty) and his children Colin, Darlene (Tony), Mark (Laurie) and Shawn. His nephew Michael and niece Lisa (Don). His grandchildren Natasha, Anthony, Logan and Safron. His great grandson Tristen.

Aubrey came to the Comox Valley in April of 1964, with the R.C.A.F. Not wanting to leave the Comox Valley, his talent as a mechanic employed him at Nib Johnson Motors, Comox Valley Ford, Seale and Thompson and Steve Marshall Motors. He expanded his talents into his own family business of “Midway Tool Rental” on Cumberland Road.

As a man he was well-loved and respected by his family and friends and is missed greatly. He gave his family roots and his community service and will be warmly remembered for many years to come. Special thanks to Dr. Nielson, “People at Home” nurses and his many friends. God be with you.

Angel of God
