Saddened to hear of Mike's passing. Mike was a really nice guy and a great guy to work with. He always had unique and humerus comments. He could pull off some really good pranks also. Sincere condolences to Wendy and family. John Lawrence

Dear Wendy, Ashley and Rory. I am so sorry for your loss and for all of us that knew Mike and loved him for the man he truly was. He was a great friend to many, a loving husband and father and an all around great guy. He touched so many lives, mine included. We were all a great bunch back in the late 70' and early 80's and boy did we know how to have fun. And Mike was right there in the thick of it all and even helped push it a little further. I will always remember him maning the keg, sorry - the lemonade stand - on our floats during the annual 4th of July parade in Hamilton. He always had that grin on his face that said, yes, we're up to something here, and you'll never know what it is. That's just one memory I will always cherish of him and our fun times together, "those dancing fools" we were referred to in the Mid York Weakly. The Cranston Road Gang ride again. I have many fond memories of our years together as great friends and Mike was certainly one of the guys. For me, it was a time of great joy, peace and comerodery. Now, it's time to celebrate his life, his friendship and the good times we all shared with him. He had an infectious smile and always knew how to have fun. That is how I will always remember Mike Wells. God bless you my friend and your family always. You were loved by many and will be missed dearly. Keep pouring those lemonades my friend, my cup is almost dry! Sincerely and with the utmost respect... Tom Brinkerhoff, (TC).
