Mark Wells, 65, of Ft. Lauderdale, FL passed away December 15, 2020. Predeceased by his parents, Chuck and Shirley Wells of Denver, he was born in Sacramento, CA and moved to Denver at the age of 3. Mark studied theatre at the American Academy of Dramatic Arts and the London Academy of Music and Dramatic Art.
