i met kent when i moved back to charleston in 2010. in that brief period of time i felt as if i had a life long friendship. we spoke of many things and shared an understanding many fundamental concepts and beliefs that is life. we spoke of faith family community friendship. like his name he truly is a champion. my first impression when we met are not just my personal feelings but the definition of who he was; kind, thoughtful, considerate, trusting, open, generous. a great guy. a good person. a true southern gentleman.
god bless champ. you lived your life touching people through your positive attitude and good nature, always making everyone feel welcome and comfortable. you gave this world the best of you and i appreciate you for that. i was blessed to have met you and find a friend in you. your passing is not without relevance or meaning. as you have touched my life with your spirit of joy and love for life, may you now find that which you know is there, the happiness that where looking for, the joy that you always shared.
