William Lee “Pee Wee” Wells was born in Conroe, Texas June 14, 1952. His parents were Leslie Earnest & Mary Evelyn (Ellis) Wells. He had been a resident of Leon County for the past forty years, coming from Longview, Texas. Pee Wee was a maintenance man and welder for a company subcontracted by NRG Power Plant for thirty years. He was later a maintenance supervisor for Centerville Healthcare Center. Pee Wee was a talented welder and used his skills to make a lot of items for people.

Pee Wee enjoyed riding the backroads of Leon County and in true Leon County fashion, was an avid hunter and fisherman. In fact, anything that took him outdoors was enjoyed by Pee Wee. He also liked get-togethers with friends and family.

Pee Wee passed away suddenly November 19, 2021 in Madisonville, Texas. He was preceded in death by both of his parents. He is survived by wife, Teri Wells of Centerville; daughter, Jeanette (Chris) Lehman of Killeen; sister, Janell (Jimmy) Morris of Frankston; granddaughter, Skylyn Wells of Killeen; step-grandchildren, Cody, Cameron & Trinity Lehman and nephew, Jeff Morris of Minot, ND, as well as numerous friends and extended family.
