Obituary of Kurt J. Wells
Kurt Julian "Boot" Wells came to this life on December 1 1925, born in Philadelphia, PA to Capius Wells and Ida Mae (Martin) Wells. Raised in Philadelphia, PA, he completed his education through the Philadelphia School System. Kurt joined the US Army in 1942 and served with distinction seeing action in WWII where he also met his late wife, Johanna. After serving his country, Kurt then served as a Correctional Officer in the State of New Jersey for over 20 years. One day, Kurt accompanied his wife to a church service in Bordentown, New Jersey. He became more than inspired and shortly thereafter, decided to dedicate himself to the Lord. Kurt served as a Priest in the New Apostolic Church for over 20 years, and was a father figure to anyone who came his way.
Kurt lost the love of his life, Johanna, on December 16 2000. Even though his beloved wife was no longer by his side, he kept his commitment to serve the Lord and never withdrew into melancholy or sorrow. He was always there to help, comfort and live life with his fellow congregation members, various friends/acquaintances and his beloved family.
Kurt is preceded into death by his three brothers and one sister; Junior, Howard, Charles Wells and Frances Williams. Kurt is survived by his two sisters, Alice Mouzon and Brenda Slocum; two brothers James and Edward Wells; one daughter Dianna and son-in law Michael Schley; son Kurt E Wells and daughter-in-law, Yuriko Wells; step son Werner "Hans" Klewitz; five grandchildren: Kurt Wells, Eddy Wells, Tracy Wells, Krystal Schley and Dain Schley; 12 great grandchildren and a host of cousins, nieces, nephews and in-laws residing in Germany.
We are thankful for all of your cards, well wishes and most of all prayers. Thank you all so very, very much.
All Around You
Hold on to your memories of me
The stories and the words of wisdoms I shared
And when you want to look for me
Just know that I am everywhere
I am in the whispering of the wind
The fluttering of the butterfly wings
The rays of the sun
And song the birds sing
Our love and bond is eternally
Even though physically we had to part
Remember my love is all around you but more importantly in your heart.
