Obituary of Richard Kent

After a brief illness on Wednesday, February 1, 2023, at his home in Port Perry, just before his 74th birthday. Richard Kent, beloved husband of Jennifer (nee Ashton). Loved father of Melanie Kent, Adam Kent (Dana), Alicia Kent, Michael Kent, Katie Brown (Guy), Alison Brown (Jonathan). Loving grandfather of Ryan, Ethan, Dylan, Kayla, Ella and Bennett. Dear brother John Kent and his wife Donna of Seagrave. He will be missed by his nieces and nephews and many friends. Richard had a long-standing local career as a butcher in the Port Perry area, notably at Reid’s Independent and more recently Willowtree Farms. Rich loved being at a beach but not surpassed by his passion for his motorcycle. He enjoyed long tours on his Harley Davidson and spending time in cottage country. His gentle kindness, sincerity and love for his family and friends will be cherished in our hearts forever.
