Kenneth Marion Wells, 86, of Huntingtown, Maryland passed away peacefully on Tuesday, October 25, 2016 with family surrounding him. He was born on March 8, 1930 in Huntingtown to Louis A. and Bertie S. Gibson Wells.
He attended Calvert High School. After graduating high school, Kenneth married the love of his life Mary Ann Wilburn and was married for 65 wonderful years. Both are life-long residents of Huntingtown where they raised their family of two sons, Walter and Michael.
Kenneth was raised a perfect gentleman and farmed tobacco for many years and later corn and soybeans. He was very involved with the construction and start-up of the Huntingtown Volunteer Fire Department that was chartered in 1972. He was a charter member and past president of the Huntingtown Volunteer Fire Department and Rescue Squad. He was nominated for the MSFA Hall of Fame, a member of the Calvert County Volunteer Fireman's Association Hall of Fame and the Southern Maryland Volunteer Fireman's Association's Hall of Fame.
He is well known for his co-chairing of the annual "Santa Run" in the community. He was also a board of director on the Calvert County Fair Board for many years. He enjoyed time with his family, farming, fishing and crabbing. Kenneth also took over a floor business in 1966, which is well known throughout Calvert County as Wells Hardwood Floors. Both sons were employed by him. He later turned that business over to Mike, who now employs both of his sons. Kenneth was a lifelong member of Huntingtown United Methodist Church, where he loved helping out with church functions.
Kenneth is survived by his wife Mary Ann Wells; sons Walter (Susie) and Michael (Robin) Wells; grandsons Kenneth "Duke" (Christie), Kevin (Ashleigh), Charles (Katie) and Jason Wells, and granddaughter Katie (RJ) Reynolds.
