Not sure what to say?

Kent's twilight hikes at Chapin State Park were a joy to attend and remain a happy memory.

Many, many thanks.

Grief can be hard at times, I feel sorry for your loss

Sorry to know Kent has left us. Very thankful to have known him through our work together for the Ohio Prairie Assoc.

I just heard that Scott has left us. I worked with Scott on the board of the Ohio Prairie Association and am thankful to have had him as a mentor. The world is a better place because Kent was here.

Thank you, Kent, for inspiring us (and our children) and many others through the dozens of programs we attended at Lake Metroparks. No matter the weather, or the size of the group, your love for the environment was always evident and transmitted to all those around you. I especially will remember with fondness the off trail hikes which remain, to this day, some of my favorite Lake Metroparks experiences.

I have great memories of Kent and learned something anytime I was with him. It was a joy to see him share his knowledge of the natural world, especially when he was with kids! He was a natural teacher. He will be missed by many. I am very proud that the Native Plant Society was able to honor his lifetime of achievement with the 2017 Gentian Award, though he could not attend to accept the award he did know that we were honoring him and said he was deeply honored.

I just heard that Scott has left us. I am very sorry. I worked with Scott on the board of the Ohio Prairie Association and knew him from CMNH. We will miss him much. He was always supportive of natural areas in Ohio.
