• Club members gathered with Leigh’s family after Saturday’s game to honor his life and reminisce about this sweet man we all loved.

    Joining us at the club were Leigh’s daughter Kristen, her husband Mike, Leigh’s son Leigh Jr., cousin Ann, granddaughter Leah, and her husband Johnny.

    The stories came thick and fast with much laughter and some tears too as we learned about his many interests as well as some of his quirks.

    Thanks to the family for graciously allowing us to post video of the event as well as copies of some of the old photos they brought in.

    We’ll all miss Leigh very much.

  • Leigh’s family would like to gather and share some time and a few good stories. We are going to do this on Saturday, October 16th. That is the morning of the Unit game. The idea is to gather after the game and have lunch. Because Leigh’s son will be coming from Sacramento that morning, we are going to move the start of the Unit game back by a half-hour to 10:00AM.

    EBC/Unit will provide the lunch. Salad, sandwiches, and Leigh’s famous butternut squash soup.

    So, to be clear. The Unit game will start at 10:00. Following the game, we will all gather, have lunch, and share our best Leigh stories. So, even if you cannot make the Unit game, please plan on attending the lunch and memorial for Leigh which will follow the game at approximately 1:30.

  • It is with great sadness that we share with all of you the passing of Leigh Wells.

    He was home and surrounded with a very, very loving family in his last days.

    Our thoughts go out to all his family members. We will have more to share later.


    From Paul Craviotto:
    Such a good gentleman! He will be missed, RIP Leigh!

    From Ali Amory:
    “Just a simple little game” he would mumble while shaking his head in fake confusion 😂

    From Joyce Spence:
    Leigh was an Emerald Bridge Club institution and will be sorely missed.

    From Ralph Zack:
    The club has lost a major asset.  Leigh was willing to partner with anyone and he would improve the partnership and teach his partner in a very gentle way.  We have suffered a great loss.  He was a terrific guy and I am proud to say he was a great buddy.

    From Jill Foster:
    Leigh was such a patient and kind person and partner. We will miss him.
