Arnold C. Paige, Kenneth P. Fountain, both 22, cousins who died in car crash

April 29, 2004

Services for cousins Arnold Charles Paige and Kenneth Paige Fountain, who died Friday in an automobile accident, will be held at noon tomorrow at Macedonia Baptist Church, 718 W. Lafayette Ave.

They were out celebrating Mr. Paige's 22nd birthday, which was Thursday, when the car he was driving struck a guard rail in the 4800 block of Windsor Mill Road in Leakin Park about 12:45 a.m.

The Baltimore natives were 2001 graduates of Walbrook High School. They lived in West Baltimore.

Mr. Paige, who was known as Pedro and Azie, played basketball and baseball at Walbrook and was a member of the Chelsea Terrace Heavy Hitters baseball team.

"He always had a smile on his face and was willing to help others in any situation," said an uncle, Douglas K. Paige, an assistant administrator for the city liquor board.

Survivors include his father, Jonathan Paige; his mother, Curlene Paige-Stith; two brothers, Jonathan Paige Jr. and Andre Paige; a sister, Tammy Bellamy; a stepfather, Lawrence Stith; a friend, Katrina Jackson; and nieces and nephews. All are of Baltimore.

Mr. Fountain, also 22, had worked since 2002 as a parking garage attendant and cashier at the University of Maryland garage on Paca Street.

A sports enthusiast, Mr. Fountain especially enjoyed baseball and football.

"Kenneth was a caring person with a large and loving family. He always enjoyed family get-togethers and especially being with his many cousins. He made friends wherever he went and was someone you could talk and have fun with," said Jacqueline Verben, an aunt.

He attended Union Baptist Church.

Mr. Fountain is survived by his father, Leon F. Fountain of Tacoma, Wash.; his mother, Wendy O. Paige of Baltimore; a brother, Frank Fountain of Tacoma; two sisters, Kelly L. Fountain of Baltimore and Lenika Fountain of Tacoma; and his paternal grandparents, Otis and Helen Anthony of Baltimore.

The service will be preceded by a family hour at 11 a.m.
