Leachville Mayor Ralph Wells, 80, died late Thursday, May 25, after an eight week battle with pneumonia.

Mayor Wells had served the city of Leachville for over 28 years. He served on the city council for two years then as mayor for 24 consecutive years. He took a break for several years and was elected mayor in 2014 and had served two and a half years of his term.

His son, Barry Wells, said he challenged anyone to show him a person who loved Leachville more than his dad.
