    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.

    Wow, brutally honest. I admire their ability to not let emotions override truth. That's rare for people to do in general, let alone when it comes to their children. Rare indeed.

    I don't respect that.

    Things like that stand out as red flags to me. When a kid is messed up, the first thing I will do is look at the parents so it doesn't sit right when their port of call is to demonstrate that they did their job when dealing with the demise of their son.

    I'm left with the impression that their image is and was always more important than what their son was going through.

    Cant do nothing but respect it.

    Maybe some young cats will read this and start heading in a different direction.

    to have less expectations?

    nah

    he chose the streets and it cost him, the end.

    how about advocating for brehs to give up the infatuation with street life? let's change that.

    How can you not respect it?

    Would u rather them lie to others and themselves?

    How can you get closure when your telling / writing a lie to yourself ?

    Dude had people who cared about him enough to try to steer him away from such bad influences, some parents will point the finger with one hand but also accept money from their street son with the other....


    His parents can sleep easy from them just accepting their son got "derailed "from the life they tried to give him

    I respect their choice, i don’t respect their execution, it’s no need to say all that to the public, you were better off saying nothing at all.

    Brehs you can battle this on multiple sides

    Of course the onus on lies on the boy but all that tough love shyt doesn't not help steer the kid in the right direction if he isn't predisposed to following a tough lovers tough guidance
