Tell us about your loved one.

Kent was in constant motion since the moment he was born. If it had wheels or a motor he rode it or drove it. He loved the thrill of speed, whether he was riding his bicycle as a child, his cars or skiing as an adult. Having the wind in his hair and the sun on his face gave him peace. He loved his family, especially his wonderful wife, Vandi and all of his friends. He was fiercely competitive in work and in play and was always a joy to be with.

Tell us about Kent's struggle with addiction

He found alcohol early in life and it took control in his mid-20's. He and our family did not know or understand how to deal with the disease and its many challenges. After 25 plus years of pain and struggles he became sober, built a wonderful business, married his wonderful wife and found joy in his life. After over 10 years of sobriety and during the financial crisis and some health issues he began to abuse pain meds which led to alcohol and his death. Addiction is a BEAST.

What made Kent smile?

His wife and his family and friends. His motorcycle, convertible and skiing. Sunny days and great movies.
