I worked with Kent at Alder Construction for 20 years. Kent was one of the hardest working guys I knew ! He did it all , building forms , pouring concrete, operating cranes . If you needed help , Kent would be the the first to ask . He was an OLD SCHOOL kind of guy ! Kent was a quiet guy , but when he did say something, you probably better pay attention. So sorry for your loss , Kathy & I send our condolences to Cindy and family .
