"So sad to lose Uncle Kent. As a little girl, he would take me with him sometimes on dates. Then he met this beautiful young lady named Janice. I still have a memory of Aunt Janice waving to me in her wedding dress. He was always so kind and always with a smile. Cherish the memories. Much love to his big and loving family. "

"Uncle Kent was alway so much fun and so good to all of us cousins. He always had a smile and made us laugh. I remember the fun we had with him on the river swimming, fishing and jumping waves with his Jon boat. I miss you Uncle Kent. Rest In Peace. Love, Jerry and Jan Johnson"

"Rest In Peace old Friend. I first worked for you when I started at the Police Dept in Fairview. I learned a lot from you and when I became Chief I still learned a lot from you. We had our ups and downs and differences of opinion but you were always a hard worker and I trusted you. Your family also supported you as you worked two jobs. Condolences to Janice and Family. "
