William Kenneth Wells Obituary

On July 2, 1946, in Denver, Colorado, William Kenneth, better known as Kenny, was delivered into the loving arms of his parents, William and Marian Wells. He was the second of three boys born into his family. The Wells family was close, hard-working, who provided spiritual foundation for their sons. Scott United Methodist Church was their place of worship and where Kenny accepted Christ at an early age. Educated in the Denver Public School System and was a proud graduate of Manual High School class of 1964. Kenny was a very outgoing young man, easy to get alone with and over all a popular student. After high school he served in the Navy USNR Manpower Center, in Bainbridge, Maryland. After returning home from his military service, he attended Community College of Denver. As a young man in the 60’s during the civil rights movement, Kenny was a member of the Black Panthers. Having been trained by his father, Kenny worked from almost the time he could walk, for Bill Wells Masonry. Not always successful in marriage, Kenny married his high school sweetheart, Sheila Williams and to this union came two daughters, Joyce and Shelley. The marriage ended in divorce. Kenny later married Shirley Coleman and to that union came two daughters, Tami and Tracy. On January 3, 2005 he married Darla Shipp, his loving a devoted companion for over 14 years. Though they had no children together, Kenny was stepfather to her four children, Karyn, Kerry, Krystal, and Kristina. Kenny loved being with his family. He enjoyed old school cowboy movies, cartoons and the sounds of Motown. He was a man of humor, confidence and style. Kenny was an impeccable dresser who loved fast cars and beautiful woman. The sun set on Kenny’s life journey on November 22, 2019. Proceeding him in death is his father William T. Wells. Left to cherish his memory is his wife Darla Wells, his mother Marian J. Wells, his children, Joyce (Sean) Williams, Viola Wright, Shelley, Tami and Tracy Wells, Karyn and Kerry Wilson, Krystal (Jason) Davis, Kristina Morey and 14 additional children; his brothers Al (Janice) and Ronnie Wells, his aunt Audrey Guest, 20 grandchildren, 10 great grandchildren, a host of nieces, nephew, other relatives, and loyal friends. To live in the hearts of others Is never to die It hard to forget someone Who gave you so much to remember
