Marc Allen Wells


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.

A celebration of Marc's life will be held on Friday, June 28 at Art Bayer's cabin at 10200 Old Highway 69 South in Mt. Vernon.

Visitation begins at 10:00 AM with a service at 12:00 PM.

I was shocked to hear of Marc's passing. I had met him on several occasions during the United Steel customer events and he was always there with a smile, a kind word, and a helping hand. He was truly one of the good ones and very sorry to hear of his passing. My condolences and prayers to his family.

My thoughts are with Marc’s family. I didn’t personally know him, but he sounds like he was a awesome and good person. I only hope to share just a little comfort. The promise at Revelation 21:3,4 that God will end death and we will see our loved ones in the future. "And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.”
