Kent loved the Southern California life style.
While living in Logan, Utah Kent met Eric White and they became very good friends and moved to California together. While living in California, their friendship turned into love and after many years together they became partners in life on August 30, 2003.
Kent worked for years as a maître d’ at a high end restaurant in Los Angeles, where he learned the trade and became a certified Sommelier. For a short time Kent and Eric owned their own restaurant in the Los Angeles area, until Kent’s health required them to sell.
Kent crossed paths with many a rescue dogs needing help; he would always save them and give them the love they needed. Kent saved his last dog Foxen in 2015 when the complex he lived at in Palms Spring was hit by a tornado. He had vowed after he had lost his last dog that he would never have another, but Foxen needed him and he needed Foxen. Foxen quickly became Kent’s emotional support to get through many difficult things including the unexpected death of Eric in 2017
Kent is preceded in death by his husband, mother, sister Sandra, and grandparents. He is survived by his father, brother Craig (Jeanene), sisters Jeri Lin Moore and Jill Tashro (Trevis), many nieces and nephews, and his dog Foxen.
