Kevin Wells, an extraordinary man passed away on January 11, 2020 at the age of 42. Kevin was born with Spinal Muscular Atrophy, a rare but genetic disorder that gradually attacks the body’s musculature. Although the disease confined him to a wheelchair all his life, his mind was incredibly sharp and he lived a life full of family, friends, faith, meaningful work, and an unwavering devotion to the Atlanta Braves. Kevin was a lifelong resident of Maryland, high school valedictorian, and recipient of NSA’s undergraduate internship scholarship. He graduated from UMBC with a Bachelor of Science Degree in Computer Science and went on to have an over 20 year career with NSA. A devout Catholic, Kevin was a lector at Good Shepherd Church in Glen Burnie for 22 years, and at the time of his passing was a parishioner at St. Philip Neri Catholic Church. He is fondly remembered by his co-workers for his humor and his cryptographic puzzle skills. Kevin was an avid trivia player, and a regular at Malloy’s trivia nights. He was much loved and feared for his encyclopedic knowledge. He is survived by his mother, Christine Wells; sister, Jennifer Magee and her husband F.J.; brother, Fred Wells and his wife, Cassie; and 4 nieces and nephews.
