Default KCBS loses Founder and friend

It is with sadness that today we have lost Gary Wells the founder of KCBS. With his heart, sole and love, he created KCBS. Equally he was a great competitor living in the true spirit of competition and what it should be. But most importantly, he was a friend to everyone he met.
Gary will be very missed, by KCBS and the entire BBQ family of Friends. Our love and prayers to Carolyn and her family.
Arrangements are being made for Friday services.
With a saddened heart and love.Merl and Carol

I never had the pleasure of meeting Gary, but I have met Carolyn. I appreciate the spirit and dedication to BBQ that Gary had. My prayers are out to Carolyn and family.

I'm not a competitor but I can understand what a great loss the community has just experienced

I never met Gary, have had contact with Carolyn, was a big help to us at our Royal competition in 2003. My prayers go out to the Wells' family too.
