Parents Tell The Truth About Their Son In His Obituary
 

 
Robert Wells III (1997 - 2020)

Robert Wells, III was born in St. Bernard Parish, October 9, 1997 to Robert Wells, Jr. and Deborah Wells. He spent the years after hurricane Katrina in the St. Charles Parish area until his murder on Sunday, February 16, 2020. As loving parents, we were not prepared for the untimely, tragic death of our young son He was a wonderful, funny, intelligent, talented and compassionate young man until the false desires of fast money and instant gratification lured him away from the morals and ethics instilled in him from a young age.

Tough Love did not deter his mindset to stay involved in the streets. We always hoped that one day his parents' Love and commitment to him would prevail and he would abandon that life. It did not. His life ended almost instantly at 22 years old, alone in a car under a barrage of gunfire. All the fast money, cars and "things" that seemingly were of importance to him, meant nothing at his crossing. We hope and pray that Robert never bestowed this kind of senseless violence upon anyone else's child, and if this obituary can offer the opportunity for another young person to realize the streets offer nothing but heartache, pain, and ultimately death, Robert's life will not have been in vain. His pained soul is now set free from all worldly desires. Dear God, please take our son, the most precious gift you could bestow upon us at his birth, back once again as your Heavenly son. Lord, keep him in your loving arms for eternity and, forgive us. Robert was predeceased by his grandparents Robert and Bertha Wells, Sr. and George H. Dupard, Sr., Ingeborg Thurston (Richard). He leaves behind a brother, Antonio, girlfriend Hailey, and many loving aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews and cousins.

There will be no service for Robert. Instead we kindly ask you to make a small donation in his name to any at-risk youth programs. Until we meet again Son, you'll forever be in our hearts.

Such a sad set of events. It seems his parents were quietly hoping against hope, but they had resolved to let him "go out there and hit that brick wall", as my grandmother used to say, a long time ago.

It boils down to a lack of self-efficacy. Too many of our young people suffer from this, particularly a lot of our young men.

After witnessing this story play out numerous times over the years, I resolved not to have any children. It's such a crap shoot. When they're born, you think you've hit 7 or 11 but in reality you hit 2, 3, or 12.

They told thier truth as they saw it..it may not be the whole truth though

The whole thing looked like a means to absolve themselves from the actions of their son...which I kind of get but at the same time you have to question why they choose such a permanent/public way to do so and the time they decided to do it...to themselves they might have been good parents...however perhaps they were not as good as they let on....if they were maybe thier child would not have strayed to the streets....just saying...

alot of hood n*ggas from N.O. have parents like this, but most kids spend way more time in school, outside on the block ect than they do with their parents because they out busting a*s for 14 hours a day. All it takes is one bad apple to poison the rest then we get situations like this.

All the people i know who have been k*lled, or k*llers themselves all come from good homes with an exception of maybe 2.

Transparency and bluntness during the grievance stage is rare.

98 percent of other parents would flip the script talking about their child was a victim in a senseless crime not knowing they played a role or participated in a lifestyle that lead to their death. More young folks in inner city neighborhoods need to read this.

I hate to say it but the music and the "culture" that goes along with it k*lled that kid. I'm starting to believe that bull sh*t about music casting spells on people. The music may not be magical in that sense but the words of some lyrics capture the weak minded easily and somehow influence them to lead sinful and deceitful lives. We see it too often in the black community were folks try to live their lives like a damn rap video. A plague on all your houses this rap music/culture. We must move forward with new vibrations to break free from this curse.

Has nothing to do with mind being weak. All minds consume what's around us. Thats what the mind does. If one person's mind is "weak" then all our minds are weak. Some people are more easily influenced, but we all can and have been influenced to do something we should have not been doing. He ended up hanging with the wrong people who also hung around the wrong people. Listened to the music, watched movies, listen to other people that also encouraged what they knew was wrong, and saw no other way out because of ignorance. Period
