    Sorry Nola. When those of us that spent our formative years in that small town on the banks of the Missouri we all lose a little more of our past when we lose a schoolmate. I do remember you brother well. I think he was in my brother Tom’s class. I truly know how you feel having lost my brother Dick a few years ago. May you always have fond memories of your brother.

    John

  2. Robert Hegler says:

    My most sincere condolences to the friends and family of Kent. I have many memories growing up with Kent in Pickstown. He was a great person to have as a childhood friend.

  3. Dennis Treusdell says:

    After more than 40 years of friendship one reflects on how quickly it is gone. So many memories; some good…some, not so much. We had some interesting times to be sure.

    As my brain struggles to recall every detail of those years, those life events that shape us all, to experience them one more time, I realize that many are gone for ever. Time has taken its toll on mind and body, so I will simply say that my sincere wish is for you to rest in peace buddy, rest in peace.

  4. Shari Barrett (Ryan) says:

    Agreed, many great memories. Long discussions waiting for court, the laughter, the knowledge, or even the bike rides to the world’s smallest museum and a slice of pie. You have touched many lives and will live on in those lives that you impacted so greatly. Rest in peace, you certainly deserve it.

  5. Beverly Dupree says:

    Dearest Kent was much loved and respected by so many (judicial officers, court employees, fellow probation officers, and probationers) during his tenure as a Juvenile Probation Officer working throughout Phoenix, and living in Tempe.

    Kent, after 32 years of knowing you, I will miss your love of a good laugh, for Harley Davidsons!, your little dogs (your kids), your home, your colleagues, and closest friends. Never one to complain (that I ever heard), and always up for an adventure and good time, I always viewed you as a classy, fair, kind and genteel spirit. I feel extremely blessed and grateful to have known you.r

    Selfishly, I hate that you’re gone, and not hearing your voice and your laughter every now and again; but also know you are now out of pain, and at peace. With much love, I will miss you forever Mon’Amie.

    Rest in peace, buddy.

    Dear Nola and Woody,
    I was a close friend of your sister Carol both in Pickstown and for a while in the Chicago. I remember Kent as ‘the little brother’ who was quiet and kind of shy and totally charming when he laughed.

    You have my deepest sympathy and my love as well.

    Kent was my first boyfriend in the latter 60,s. So sad to hear he’s gone. Rest in peace , kent.

    It’s been one year ago today
    Again…rest in peace Kent

  10. Kathy Nort says:

    Out of touch with Kent for awhile. Looked him up in order to stop by and visit, and found this. Shocked. Stunned. Had absolutely no idea.I am so sorry for the loss to his sister.
    Know Kent since 1970 when we both lived at the Oasis apts in Tempe and became fast friends. He was just so incredibly easy to get along with! I hate that I still live here and can’t go see him anymore.
    And Dennis Truesdell was my next door neighbor, way back when, right after his motorcycle accident, when we lived on 3rd or was it 4th Ave just S of McDowell. Glad to see his comment here.
    Can someone/ANYone please tell me what happened to Kent. I’ve been wrestling with his loss, since I found out, about a month ago. Reply here or call/text 3*703*3000. Would sure appreciate it.
    Miss you Kent old friend!
