Kent could be described as a gentle, calm natured man, without a mean bone in his body. He had an impeccable work ethic and he was extremely responsible and detailed.

Kent definitely had a fun loving side that he especially let his daughter’s see. He loved listening to music with them, the Pussy Cat Dolls were among his favorites! Kent very much enjoyed spending time with his kids. Their time together usually involved good food, as Kent loved to eat, as well as good conversation!
Kent was a huge dog lover . . .he had an especially strong bond with his dog, Dexter. Actually, anywhere Kent went or visited he bonded with animals and they bonded right back.
Kent could often be found watching UFC Fights, Indianapolis Colts, IU Basketball, Pacer Basketball and of course his favorite show, Trailer Park Boys.
