Dearhearts, I offered mass at 12:10 yesterday for George and my rosary afterwards as I knew he would be laid to rest at 2 pm. This a bittersweet time but the LOVE you all shared and gave will comfort you in future. George touched many lives, I'm sure he's met my dad in heaven too! He left a family legacy, may you always keep your family together. May God's mercy, grace and love be always with you. Charlene 🙏💚🥀

Rod, Gina & all of the Kent family: So sorry to hear of the loss of the wonderful patriarch of your family. He raised a nice family, had an interesting career (which included some patents in his name), was funny, had a passion for golf & always seemed to keep up with technology. I was always impressed by how energetic he was even throughout much of his later doubt this is how he made it to 101 years old! It's tough to lose a parent/loved one, but I hope that a special memory or story that you have of him will come up every time you're especially missing him. R.I.P., George!
Love, Laurie & Domenic

Very sad about his passing. My daughters and I received the news with a mixture of sadness and peace. We did a little prayer. We remembered sweet memories of Grandpa Kent. We saw pictures of him. I am glad that my girls will be there with their Dad. They will have a chance to say goodbye and share with the family. Big hug to all.

So sorry to hear of Roger’s Dad’s passing. He enjoyed a long life and had a wonderful family. My entire family has you all in our prayers at this time. Hope to see you both once this pandemic has become a distant memory.

My deepest condolences to you on this sad occasion. I will miss your updates about his golfing exploits. Although I never met your dad, he must’ve been a good man. He raised a great son.

Knowing George over the years has been an honor for us. He had a sparkling sense of humor and a good personality. Serving our nation during WW2, he displayed strength and courage and all of us are grateful to him for that. Rest In Peace, Friend .

For many years I had the pleasure and Honor to work as an usher with George at All Saints Catholic Church in Knoxville. He was one remarkable man who served and protected us in the USA during WW2. This honorable and god fearing religious man will not be forgotten by me. Surely George will remember all his friends and family while he lives on in heaven.
