David Wells dead and obituary, partner in business cause of death

I am saddened and devastated. David Wells was a beautiful human being, friend and communicator. He had such a talent for words. I will miss him, his wit, smile, and genuine heart. We lost a very special person. I am so sorry for his family and friends.

We were devastated by the passing of my friend and business partner David Wells this weekend. Our hearts go out to his family and friends and to all of his colleagues in Prosek and beyond. He is one of the most talented communicators in his field and a successful businessman. He is funny, friendly and has a big heart. He likes to balance his work and life in the best possible way, which is why we are very, very close. David loves being on stage. When we were asked to come on stage at the last minute at last year’s SuperReturn Berlin conference and fill in the void left by a deceased speaker, he did it with ease. It’s one of my fondest memories of our easygoing, fun energy. David immersed himself in each experience with enthusiasm and confidence. His imprint will always remain on our firm, first as a client, then as a partner, and forever as a friend.

David Lee Wells (born May 20, 1963) is an American former baseball pitcher who played 21 seasons and 9 teams in the Major League Baseball (MLB) , most notably the Toronto Blue Jays and New York Yankees. Wells, nicknamed “Bomer,” was considered one of the best left-handed pitchers in the league during his career and was a three-time All-Star. In 1998, he threw the 15th perfect game in baseball history. Wells also appeared in the playoffs as part of six teams, most of them with Kenny Lofton, and won two World Series titles. After retiring from the game in 2007, Wells was an MLB announcer on TBS and host of The Cheap Seats on FOXSport.

Wells was born in Torrance, California. His parents never married. So he was raised by his mother, Eugenia, a member of the Hells Angels, aka “Attitude Annie.” Wells grew up believing his father, David Pritt, was dead. However, at the age of 22, he learned that Preet was still alive and began to track him down and start a new relationship with him.

Wells grew up in San Diego’s Ocean Beach neighborhood, where he attended local public schools and relied on his multi-working mother to support him and his four siblings. He graduated from Point Loma High School in 1982, where he played baseball and basketball and is a self-described “fitness freak,” spending most of his time at Ocean Beach Recreation Center and Robb Field. Wells was a star pitcher at Point Loma High School, throwing a perfect game his senior year.

In July 1985, he underwent Tommy John’s surgery.
