I hope that the loving memories of your life together comfort you now and in the days ahead. My thoughts are with you during this difficult time.

My Uncle Kent was one of the finest men I knew. He was my father’s beloved older brother. I enjoyed hearing tales of their childhood. I especially cherish the times spent at the farm near Roslin. I was always welcomed with open arms and included in any activities such as auctions and country fairs. Kent had a wide selection of stories and enjoyed sharing them with others. He was kind, enjoyed life and loved his family. He was a true gentleman. We will miss him but always remember him with love.
