In Memory of Alexander Wells

Alexander Thomas Wells (Alex), 41, beloved husband of Meagan Kennedy Wells and proud and loving father of Emory (9), Ramsey (7), and Benson (3), passed away suddenly and unexpectedly on November 14, 2017.  Alex was loved by many, and numerous people have requested to make a donation directly to Meagan and the children in memory of Alex (rather than to an organization). We know this means a lot to everyone to be able to honor his memory (many already have) and so, in response, we decided to set up this gofundme.  Any donation made here will go directly to Meagan and the children.

Alex lived in Cincinnati, Ohio. He was born in Lexington, Kentucky on August 12, 1976 to Bertram Wells and Jane Wilson Brown Wells.  He was known for his wit, humor, gregarious personality, and his ability to light up any room.  He adored his family, friends and Jesus. Alex graduated from Tates Creek High School, Lexington, Kentucky (1995) and the University of Kentucky (2000) with a dual degree in finance and accounting.  He most recently worked as the Director of Accounts Payable for Luxottica in Mason, Ohio.  He formerly worked at Clark Schaefer Consulting, Protiviti and PricewaterhouseCoopers. He is survived by his wife, Meagan; children, Emory, Ramsey and Benson; mother and father, Jane and Bertram Wells; sister, Perry; brother and sister-in-law, Joseph (Lauren); grandmother, Sadie Brown; father-in-law and mother-in-law, Jere and Sarah Kennedy; sister-in-law and brother-in-law, Lindsay Kennedy Hatton and Jim Hatton; brother-in-law and sister-in-law, John-David Startzman and Erin Kennedy Startzman; nieces and nephews, Blaire and Avery Wells and Joshua and Ella Hatton; and many other aunts, uncles, and cousins.
