I wish to extend my condolences to you and your family regarding Kent’s passing. We lost touch over the years and I was not aware that he had been ill. We had some great times working together at Royal Purple Garden Supplies. Kent, Don Heaslip and I worked hard at this time of year getting the Royal Purple display ready for the Landscape Ontario Conference in January. We would often meet together at the Kelsey’s restaurant at Oxford & Wonderland to talk about issues on a Friday afternoon. For a short time I worked with Kent at the Ontario Seed Company as well. Kent was always energetic and incredibly dedicated to his customers. I’m very sorry to hear of his passing.
