Thoughts and Prayers for Tina, Spencer, Sarah, family, and friends.
Reminiscing the good times spent with Kent brings laughter, joy, and tears.
From the early days as my HAM radio friend WB9YRG. We hung out at the shoe shop, cruised the town and partied with many friends. Big cup in hand, Elvis was always ready for a good time, He was a happy husband and a very proud father. We loved his laugh and straight to the point attitude.
Thanks for the many memories!
We all lost a good man, Kent you will be missed.
Sincerely
John, Dania, Cassie, and John Paul Petersen
