I first met Kent when he was part of the team that was redoing my kitchen some years ago. I was impressed with his work ethic and often called on him for various things I wanted to have done/fixed and over the time he was much more than a handyman, he became a friend. We talked about music and I had planned to give him some of my old LPs. I was devastated when he called to tell me of his illness. My condolences to his family. Know that he will be missed by the many lives he has touched,

He was a really cool guy, separated himself from the system , jammed great tunes and made the most awesome sounding guitars from garbage. He will be missed.

I am so saddened by the loss of Kent. His smile and gentle soul will be missed! Being younger, back when I first met him, his love for music, knowledge of
the rock genre, and humor all inspired anyone who became his friend! His love for anything mechanical also inspired us as well! One of my fondest memories of Kent was when he got rid of his Shelby Mustang and decided to hot rod a Ford Pinto station wagon! And then we got the chance to drag race down route 9 in Wappingers Falls!
