    Kent was such a nice person and would help you out with anything. Yes, he was a talented mechanic and would explained what he was doing even though I didn’t usually comprehend most of what he told me.

    Kent was a great father, friend as well as a gifted mechanic. A quiet man who was happy with having his family and friends close. He will be missed and leaves a profound void in the live and hearts of those who were lucky enough to look know him.
