Kent Barry Martin

On Tuesday, February 12, 2013, Kent Barry Martin of Elkridge, MD. Beloved son of Stefania Stith and the late Bernard C. Martin. Brother of Dale R. Martin and uncle of Rachael L. Millikan. The Memorial Service and Inurnment will be arranged at a later date. If desired, memorial contributions may be made in his name to St. Jude's Childrens Hospital, Memphis, TN. Services were handled by the Gary L. Kaufman Funeral Home at Meadowridge Memorial Park, Inc., Elkridge, MD.

Written by Racheal Millikan, niece There's only one thing I know...life is impermanent. My Uncle Kent just passed away today, age 60. A collector of guitars, music, classic lunchboxes, Winchesters, old-fashioned floor radios, and anything that might find it's way to the Antiques Roadshow. He was a walking history book, a real character, a Daniel Boone of sorts. We laughed and we laughed a lot ! Quirky to most, Uncle Kent to me. Thanks for the truth, the love, the music, the education and all our good belly laughs. We were so agreeable. I'll miss it, all of it. Fly free Uncle. May the music be more beutiful than ever.

So sad to hear of your passing. Like Paul said, where did the time go? You were such an important influence in the lives of my kids. Your adventurous spirit will live on through them. You always had the time and interest to dote on them like they were your family. There's another start shining brightly somewhere over the big Montana sky. Thought and prayers to your family.

I'm just in shock... So, so sad to have learned of your passing so late after the fact. What happened that three years have passed since we spoke and the time passed so quickly?

My love and condolences to your family and friends.

Using the internet to try and find my old friend Kent after many years, I was saddened and shocked to find out he has passed away. My heart goes out to Stefania and Dale and all those who loved him. I often think about him and our fun times. Sorry we lost touch but I am left with fond memories.

Well, it's Christmas time now (as you well know). I saw your Mom last week and she is having a tough time missing you. I am missing your wanting to wrap everything by Dec. 1st, and making your door swag too. Mostly, I just miss your presence, you being you,and grilled cheese sandwiches & tomato soup. Hope there are big celebrations of Christmas in heaven. Love ya'. Yeah, I do, but not in the way you think. You were (are) my BEST friend! Merry Angel Christmas, Kent.

Happy Angel Birthday to you Kent. You are still missed so much around here. People still ask me ab0ut you. You are in every room of my house cuz you painted them all. You are outside cuz you painted that as well, and you cut my grass. Thanks for being my best friend...I still miss you, my friend! Probably always will. K

Well Mr. Kent, I hadn't seen you recently but I did missed you. As a matter of fact, Greg just asked if I'd heard from you. I will miss you, the trips to "Kent's Cabin", the dinners on Butterfield Dr, the dinners in Lisbon and all the goofiness. You were one of a kind and yes as Kay put it, your quirkiness. Your quirkiness was your charm. I can't believe you're gone, it's just too weird to think about. I will never forget you my buddy! Love You and we'll meet agin one day.

I had the great pleasure of knowing Kent for several years. He was my mother's best friend, and always quite pleasant to be around. I'll always recall eating crabs on my deck with he and my mom, the way he would play with and tickle my son Gannon, and the easy, simple demeanor he always exuded. I remember we had some wonderful conversations about everything from firearms to politics to relationships.

You were a good man Kent Martin, and you will be missed my friend. Shoot straight up there, keep the shiny side up and be at peace.

Your friend,
Ian

It was a real pleasure to meet Kent and Katharine on several visits to my antique shop in West Annapolis - and we had a number or very pleasant discussions about vintage merchandise - and life in general. I will miss Kent's sharp wit and very friendly manner - it was my privilege to get to know him. I know that we will meet again on the other side - and I will look forward to talking again about life......My sincere condolences to Katharine and Kent's family.

Dear K,
I'm going to miss all the laughs and memorable experiences we had over the years. You have always been a great friend even though I never liked your Parrish prints, the radios, the guns, and the tapestry you had hanging on the ceiling in the basement of your mother's townhouse in Columbia. And you stayed friends with me even though I didn't give you the "Three Monkeys" and the JBL speakers.
I will miss you Kent, in fact, I already have.
