    Kent was one of the finest human beings I’ve ever known. An amazing family man and friend. I was blessed to have known him and a better person because of it.

    My condolences to Kent’s family. I worked closely with Kent for 10 years at the World-Herald before I retired. I enjoyed listening to his stories about working with the Scouts and his early years in electronics, and he was someone I could learn from and confide in. He will be missed.

    Loved being able to share in the memories of Kent via the internet. I will always remember Kent as a man of few words, but every word was meaningful, memorable and above all spoken with love, respect and kindness. His testimony and example that he left behind will be a pillar of strength for all of his posterity and friends that he left behind. Our prayers and love are with you all, Richard and Susan.
