Wade was born on January 12, 1973 in Cardston AB to the late Jordan Wells and the late Marilyn Weasel Head (Moses). He was raised on the Blood Reserve, where he would often stay with many relatives and friends. Wade attended school at Stand-off Elementary school, St.Mary’s Jr and Sr High School. He attended Red Crow Community College where he received his GED. Later in his life, he attended the University of Lethbridge where he was working towards obtaining his Bachelor of Management Degree. His work accomplishments include: working as a summer student with the Standoff Superette, BT Recreation, BT Public Works, BT Lands Department, KDL security, Lethbridge Homeless Shelter and contracting for BT Housing. He enjoyed roofing with his auntie Puncho.
At an early age, Wade developed a love for the game of hockey. Even before he learned to skate, he would always be seen with a cut hockey stick. His father Jordan taught him how to skate at the age of 3 and since then has always had a passion and love for the game of hockey. The love for hockey, lead him to be a real “rink-rat”. He would spend countless hours at the rink where he would end the day off playing with the oldtimers. Throughout his hockey career he played on numerous teams and brought home many league and provincial championships. A highlight of his hockey career was when he played for the Kainai Golden Chief Organization and they battled against Russia and Sweden. Wade showed tremendous leadership on and off the ice. His second favorite sport was playing slo-pitch. Wade and Lionel Weasel Head put together the Dust Devil’s slo-pitch team where they were both captains and often were looked up to as leaders. Along-side the Dust Devil’s, Wade travelled to Tri-City in Washington to play in the Slo-Pitch World Series. Wade was a natural athlete and caught on to many sports he tried and always brought home many MVP’s, Allstar’s and Championships. His athletic ability gave him the opportunity to travel throughout Canada where he met and developed life-long friendships and family.
Wade had many accomplishments he was proud of, but the proudest moments of his life were when he became a father to his children Tay-lynne, Shalaine, Jadelyn, and Bransen. He loved his babies more than words can express and he had a special bond with each and every one of them. In every conversation he would be heard speaking of his children and the love he had for them. His family meant a lot to him. Him being the oldest and only boy, he was a real momma’s boy. He had a special bond with his step-dad Charlie whom he referred to as “Moses”. Along side Marilyn, Charlie, his sisters, and his late grandmother Annie, he travelled across the US to play hand-games. He and his late uncle Tyrone “Jesus” shared a favorite hand-game song. Wade made his cursillo in 1995. Wade had a tender heart. He loved and treated everyone he met with compassion and respect. Wade referred to all his friends and family as his brothers and sisters.
