Kent was a wonderful person. He will be sadly
missed, always made you laugh. He loved his
squirrels and birds and his little doggie. We will
continue to cherish his memories with his wife
Jane and his daughter Gena. Lou Dixon

I never had the pleasure of meeting Mr. Warner, but if the measure of a man can be judged by his daughter's character, then Mr. Warner must have been an incredible man.
Love, Bill and Nora Johnson
