I was sergeant of the Garry Owen Pipes and Drums when Kent was a member during his duty in Germany. He was a great guy and we downed a lot of German beer together. Sorry to hear of your loss. We've been trying to reach him recently and now I know why we were unsuccessful. May he rest in peace. Garry Owen brother!

Dear Children and Brother Richard,
While it has been many years since I have seen Kent, I know he touched many lives. My father, Wally and my brother , Gary, always enjoyed catching up with Kent. My best memories are from my childhood when Kent was always nice to his younger cousins. Sending my love and my condolences. Laurie
