I first met Kent when I saw him onstage at the Inland Empire Festival in Riverside, California in the summer of 2001. To this day, it is one of the most electric, amazing performances that I have ever seen. I felt compelled to introduce myself backstage, and I was fortunate to be able to host him and his band at my home while they performed in San Francisco the following summer. Through my conversations with Kent, it not only became clear that he is one of the kindest human beings and the gentlest of souls, but also that he was torn that his passionate need to live his truth took him away from the people who he knew and loved in his hometown of Logan. It is my wish that his friends and family in Utah know that you were always in the center of his heart, and that you also know that he was so, so dearly loved and cherished by those who surrounded him in California. Rest In Peace, dear, sweet, talented, energetic, loving, generous, unique, empathic, and electric Kent.
