Marc Allen Wells, of Oronoco, MN and formerly of Mt. Vernon, IN, passed away on June 19, 2019 at the age of 39.
Marc was a devoted and beloved father, husband, son and friend. He enjoyed traveling, fly fishing, training dogs for hunt tests, hunting turkey, ducks, geese, pheasants, antelope and African game. Marc loved taking his wife and daughter to baseball games, singing karaoke, math, and construction.
Marc always had a smile on his face and an infectious laugh, and never spoke a bad word about anyone. He loved helping people and made friendships in every place he lived and worked across the United States. Marc was extremely hard working and honest, and he never waivered in his character or beliefs. He loved helping people whether it was tutoring a child in math or helping a friend put a new roof on a house. No job was too large for him to tackle.
Marc was born December 23, 1979 and grew up in Mt. Vernon. He graduated from Mt. Vernon High School in 1998 and from Oklahoma State University with a BS in Agricultural Economics. While living in Oklahoma, he started Fowl Weather Retrievers Guide Service where he and his wife guided duck, goose, and turkey hunts. They also raised and competed in hunt tests with their Labrador Retrievers. In 2014, he moved to Minnesota to work for United Steel Supply where he became a loyal friend to both colleagues and customers.
Marc is survived by his wife, Megan Pfeiffer-Wells; daughter, Avery Katherine Wells; parents, Elizabeth and Rick Wells; brother, Phillip Wells; sister-in-law, Jessica; and nieces and nephews, Amber, Cody, Hailey, Colton; and grandmother, Frieda Wells.
