Kent was known and well respected for being a quiet, very respectful and no matter how he was feeling himself managed to bring a smile to so many people's faces. Every morning he would greet me at his work talking about our days how they had been and what the next day would bring and reminiscing about the old days when we were younger and life in general. When I didnt go in he would ask my work colleagues who did to say hello and he would see me tomorrow. He was the light in some dark days for me. He quite often would have a glint in his eye and a smile on his face and when I left we would both even be laughing. I miss those days. Even the other staff members where he worked commented about the amount of conversations that would be had when I went in. They thought it was great as he didnt show this to many people. Such a devistating terrible tragedy. My thoughts and deepest sympathy have been with all the family since I first found out. He may no longer be with us but he will never be forgotten by so many people it is such a great loss. I am sorry I am not able to attend but my thoughts are with you all.

Apologies if I have the wrong Allan Fredric. Somehow I think I have the right family. I can ‘see’ Dick Fredric in the photograph on this page. I did not know Kent but wish you to accept our sincere Condolences on your loss. Along with my older sister Margaret Craig, I was a babysitter for Allan and a brother , Roger I think, during your primary school years, on Sunday nights when your parents went to church. Our father was Bill Craig, builder and Dick was the plumber. This was of course during the 1950s so details are poorly remembered. I recall you had beautiful long haired cats, and skirmished with them sometimes. Cherish the memories.

Our prayers and condolences have been with you since we first heard about Kent's tragic untimely death. I remember him as a polite, fun loving caring child and young adult. He always had a smile and warm greeting for anyone at church each Sabbath. And as he went on the high school developed a talent for computer technology and as I've learned became extremely good in his chosen career.
May God continue to bless, strengthen and comfort you Allan and Glenn, Janine and Leah. 🙏❤
