On the morning of February 13th, 2021, Ken Wilt, loving adventurer, took the voyage home to be with our Lord. He served as a volunteer member of the Rescue Squad Auxiliary, especially enjoying Bingo calling, and helping to fund vehicles, equipment, and facilities. A true outdoorsman, Ken enjoyed sailing, biking, scuba diving, and rafting.

Ken was born in Washington D.C. and spent his teenage years in Columbus, OH. He graduated Summa Cum Laude from Ohio University with a B.A. in Environmental Geography while studying two semesters abroad in Austria and Germany.

He had a traveling soul and began exploring by biking from the North Sea to the Dead Sea while working on his thesis. When he was in his early 30’s he bought a boat and began his life on the sea. He soon after sailed from Lake Erie to Marathon in the Florida Keys where he met the love of his life, Dawn. Together they explored the tropical waters of the Keys before returning north to be closer to family. They lived aboard for ten years with homeports in Florida, Maryland, Delaware, and finally Virginia.

Ken was preceded in death by his mother Paula Primrose and his beloved dog Gizmo. He is survived by his father David L. Wilt; brother, Dennis Wilt; wife, Dawn Wilt; and his adopted family of Kim Mathews, Todd and Dawn Bontrager, and grandchildren, Alexandria, Lily, Makena, Logan, and Cyrus. He was loved and will be missed.
