Former Hubbard Twp. police chief dies
BURGHILL - Former Hubbard Townhsip police Chief Calvin Richard "Rick" Wells died Thursday at his home.
Wells, 57, began his law enforcement career as a Trumbull County Sheriff's deputy. In 1978, he moved over to the Hubbard Township police as a patrolman. He remained with the department until he retired in 2006.
Part of his tenure in the township included a stint as chief beginning in 1991. He stepped down as the top cop in 1995, however, to give trustees the right to choose their own chief because he was appointed by a different set of trustees.
He was replaced by current chief, Todd Coonce.
Wells is survived by his wife, Tammy, and three daughters.
Kelley-Robb-Cummins Funeral Homes is handling the arrangements.
