Kent also found enjoyment in watching the Detroit Tigers, going to the beach, swimming, fairs, playing Euchre in Springport, farming, deer hunting and family get-togethers. Kent loved Amish baked pies and turnovers, Neapolitan ice cream, tending to his garden and listening to music as well. Kent took his fashion cues from no one.
