Mr. Adams died on November 10th after a prolonged illness. He was 90 years old.
“Wellington is deeply saddened by the loss of a great leader, community advocate, and friend. We are grateful to Mr. Adams for his dedication to making Wellington a great place for everyone. His foresight and wisdom early in the Village’s development was instrumental in Wellington becoming what it is today. Ken loved the Village and he was greatly invested in our hometown; he was a tireless, dedicated advocate for Wellington. Ken Adams is part of what made Wellington such a unique and special place, his memory lives on in the road that bears his name, Ken Adams Way, and his inclusion on our Founders Plaque,” said Village Manager, Paul Schofield.
