The first time I met Mr. Johnson, he was reading and It seems every time I saw him thereafter, he was reading something - newspaper, magazine or book. He seemed so focused that I thought about tip toeing by him. Maybe the dog barked, but he looked up from his text, over his glasses to see what had distracted him. Then bam- I saw his eyes- they seemed to sparkle. Greetings were brief, then Mr. Twinkly-eyes resumed reading.

May you find comfort in your loving memories.

With deepest sympathies,
Jennifer and Rick Franklin
(Nancy’s college roommate).

I was with Kent for a little over this last year. Although slowing down Kent had a great sense of humor. He loved teaching me how to do the things he could no longer do like putting antifreeze in the boat lines and both of us under his truck trying to change the oil! He loved animals and doted over little Brutus spoiling him and calling him his little mouse. It was a pleasure to take care of him he will be missed.

For Kent and family:
Our condolences,
I have known Kent as a college room mate and life long friend since 1953. He will be dearly missed by all. A fisherman, builder, engineer, husband, grandpa, investor and father. Always a smile and a helping hand. Kent loved the common man and made friends quickly. I have several funny stories that can be related when appropriate.
God Bless and Hang in There!

Tony and Linda Avellano
