Kent, Bertram  
1929 - 2016 Bert Kent, a leading society musician closely connected to important trends and famous people of his generation, died at Morristown Memorial Hospital on April 23, after a battle with cancer. He was 87. Born Bertram Kravitz in Brooklyn in 1929, the son of immigrants Irving and Leah Kravitz, he taught himself guitar as a teenager. By 1950 he was performing in nightclubs and on radio and television as the guitarist for the Cy Coleman Trio. He was also a member of Sammy Kaye's orchestra (first string guitarist, fourth string drummer). Kent went on to become a prominent New York society musician, leading his own combos at celebrated venues and presidential inaugurals, including for JFK, Johnson and Nixon. He befriended New York Mayors Wagner and Lindsay, Governor Rockefeller and countless celebrities. He performed with many jazz greats, including Ella Fitzgerald. But his cultural importance was as a leading exponent of the American songbook in the vibrant music scene of the mid-20th century. He recorded Irving Berlin and Richard Rogers on SMA Records. He was widely known and loved in society music circles, recruited as recently as September 2015 to play a 60th wedding anniversary party at the Century Country Club in Purchase, New York. He also pursued other careers concurrently with his lifelong music career. He served as a meteorologist with the United States Air Force during the Korean War, enlisting after his cousin, Leonard Kravitz (rocker Lenny Kravitz’s uncle), was killed in action (for his heroism Leonard Kravitz was awarded a posthumous Congressional Medal of Honor by President Obama). He invented methods for gathering and connecting data points about weather, including calling contacts for real-time observations at a distance, and was brilliant at recognizing patterns and making accurate predictions. During his meteorology training at the University of New Mexico, he met his first wife, Jacqueline Cox. In 1952 they married and moved to Kent, England, where he was stationed to provide forecasts for planes returning to base, and whence he derived his stage name, made legal after 1955. After the war, he earned his BS degree from Columbia University on the GI bill, and moved to Westchester County, where he lived for 45 years. In the mid-1960s he became the only non-PhD faculty member of Rockefeller University, where he was instrumental in creating the first health care administration computer program, MUMPS, used to manage methadone programs. He taught himself basic computer languages for the post, and had intuitive insights career programmers didn't, which held great practical value for hospitals. Later, he channeled his autodidact abilities and predictive insights into creating unique stock trading algorithms. He is survived by his second wife Elaine Kent, whom he married in 1976, two sons by his first marriage David and Stephen Kent, grandchildren Martin, Sevilla, Marshall, Austin, Hillary, Adrielle and Terrence Kent, stepsons Marc and Andrew Lifshin, sister Barbara Ornstein, nephews Rob and Dan Ornstein and Allan Cox, and niece Ann Taylor. Please make any donations in his memory to Morristown Unitarian Fellowship muuf.org.

KLEINBERG, NORMAN - New York  
KLEINBERG--Norman Charles, beloved husband of Marcia; devoted father of Lauren and Joanna and father-in-law to their husbands Darren and Daniel; loving grandfather of Margot, Charlotte and Jake; and valued colleague of the partners of Hughes Hubbard & Reed, passed peacefully in his sleep on May 2, 2016. Norman graduated from Tufts University in 1968 and from Columbia Law School in 1972. Following his graduation, Norman clerked for the Honorable Charles M. Metzner, United States District Court for the Southern District of New York, until 1974. He then joined the law firm of Hughes Hubbard & Reed in Manhattan, where he worked until 2012 when his failing health prevented him from continuing. Norman was always in motion. He was an ardent traveler and reveled in planning adventurous journeys with his family. Norman was also an accomplished trial lawyer with many notable trials that led to his selection as a fellow of the American College of Trial Lawyers. He was passionate about his work, devoted to his clients who chose him as their advocate, and loyal to his colleagues, training and inspiring a generation of attorneys at Hughes Hubbard & Reed where he chaired the litigation department. He loved to win, and nearly always did, while always adhering to the highest standards of the profession. Adversaries whom he had bested and judges who had presided over his cases remembered him with fondness and admiration years after their cases with Norman were over. His determination on behalf of his clients inspired those who worked for him to find reserves of stamina, persistence and creativity that they never knew they had. Norman had those qualities in abundance, and a magnificent ability to translate the hard work of the team into a devastating cross- examination or a winning argument to the court or jury. As devoted as he was to his profession, Norman was even more committed to his family, originally the three women in his life, then expanding to include his sons-in-law and grandchildren. Those who worked with Norman remember that even at the end of a long day preparing for trial, he never failed to call home to help with homework assignments or review college applications. And, just a few years ago, following another courtroom win, an Illinois jury was passing around pictures of his first grandchild. His vibrancy and courage live on in our hearts. Services will be held at Frank E. Campbell - The Funeral Chapel at 1076 Madison Avenue on Wednesday, May 4, at 1:30pm.
