Jay Henry Wellberg, 70, went home to be with the Lord Friday Oct. 14, 2016 after a long battle with cancer. He was born December 14, 1945 in Duluth.

He also served in the US Army, worked with youth in the Hennepin Co. court system, co-owned and operated Malacorp, Inc., was a carpenter’s assistant, and was Assistant manager at Happy Sleeper.

Jay enjoyed fishing, gardening, and reading the bible. He loved children and the elderly. Jay’s kindness and understanding were hallmarks of his friendship. Jay could be as silly as a clown with his humor.

The family would like to thank Dr. Anne Silve-Benedict, Dr. Luke Midlo, and the St. Luke’s Oncology, Infusion, and Hospice unit for the warm and loving care they provided Jay (and the hugs).
