Ralph Bradley Wells

Ralph Bradley Wells (affectionately know to many as Papoo), 80, of Prestonsburg, passed from this life on June 13, 2020.

He was born on February 29, 1940 in Odds, Johnson County, to the late Eugene and Alma Wells.

Following high school, Ralph attended EKU for two years before entering the military for three years. Upon discharge, he came home and began a career in the coal mines that lasted nearly 40 years.  

Ralph is survived by his wife of 51 years, Barbara, as well as his children: Gina Porter and her husband, Jimmy, Bradley Wells and his wife, Paula: his grandchildren :Rachael (Austin) Mckinney, Blake Tarver, Evan Wells, Ella Wells, Owen Wells, Alison Porter, Casey Tarver and Cody Martin; his sister Elaine Andrusia; as well as a host of special nieces and nephews whom he loved dearly. Along with his parents, he was preceded in death by his sisters: Joyce O’Conner, Gwen Alexander, Gail Pfeifer, and Evelyn (Susie) Wells.

As well as being a member of the military, he was also a member of the Zebulon Masonic Lodge 273 and the Oleika Temple, Lexington Chapter of the Shriners. He worked for over 50 years at Pontiki Coal company as the Maintenance Supervisor.

He was known for his quick wit and sly sense of humor as well as his intense love for his family and friends. Although he came to the Lord later in life, he knew that the end of his life was not the true end, but a beautiful new beginning. We will see him again.
