The 12200 block of Calle Saucillo is now known as Bob Wells Way, an honorary street name recognizing the tremendous impact of the late Bob Wells. At the unveiling ceremony, Councilman Mark Kersey said, “The variety of nonprofit and business leaders who are here in support today is a testament to how involved Bob was in the community.”

The longtime civic leader was often referred to as Mr. RB for his dedicated involvement. He was one of the founders of the Rancho Bernardo Business Association and Rancho Bernardo Community Foundation, inducted into the Rancho Bernardo Hall of Fame in 1993, and named RB Honorary Mayor in 1997. He passed away in 2012.

“When he and our mom moved here in 1985, neither of them anticipated that they would play such a visible and influential role in the evolution of RB,” shared David Wells, Bob’s son. “Were he alive today for this honor, in a rare moment I think our dad would be speechless!”
