Harry Allen Kent III of Mora, Minnesota, passed away at home on January 15, 2017.  He was 40 years old.

Harry was born to Harry Allen Jr. and Jennifer Mae (Burns) Kent on December 11, 1976 at the Kanabec County Hospital in Mora, Minnesota.  He resided in Mora the majority of his life, attending school there and was active in wrestling, football, track and field, band and choir. After graduating from high school in 1995 he attended Itasca College, after which he moved back home to Mora. Here he worked for his parents in manufacturing.

His passion was his music.  He enjoyed playing with different musicians around the country.  It was this love of music that carried him through life.  He shared his music with all that would listen. He put his thoughts and love into his music. He taught himself to play all kinds of different instruments but, his guitar was his main love.  He could express himself through his guitar and his voice, like most can only dream of.  None could dispute his talent. He gave his talent to all; Writing songs, teaching others to play, and sharing his voice. He would go wherever people needed him, close or far; his friends only needed to call.

As he continued his music Harry decided to go into real estate. He finished his schooling and became an agent working for Mille Lacs Realty. 

Harry was preceded in death by his grandparents, Harry Paul and Mildred Kent of Mora and Florence Burns of Sherburne.

Harry is survived by parents, Harry Jr. and Jennifer of Mora; siblings, Eric (Connie) of Princeton; Misty Nelson (fiancé Barry Cooper) of Burnsville; Lisa (Ken) Hockert of Ramsey; Patrick (Julie) of Twin Cities; and Sheila (Chris) Gullickson of Inver Grove Heights;  nieces and nephews, Sara, Becca, Stephanie, Daniel (Brittany) Nelson, Matthew Nelson, Aaron Nelson, Jesse Noble, Sydney Noble, Riley Hockert, Peyton Gullickson and Drew Gullickson; numerous other relatives and friends. He will truly be missed by all.

    I’m gonna miss you Harry! I always loved jamming with you and hearing you play and sing. I still remember coming down to DB’s to see the Operators before we knew any of you guys. You were a good friend and a great influence on Andy too. That picture is great too by the way :-)

    I’ve had a real heavy heart since I heard the news Sunday. Rest in peace Harry Kent!

    I wanted to express my heartfelt condolences to Harry’s family. There’s such a sense of helplessness when someone we love dies. I’d like to share some scriptural thoughts that really helps me. Prayer is so valuable at this time but it’s not that prayer simply makes us feel better. 2 Cor.4:7 says that God can give us,”.. power beyond what is normal “, to go from one day to the next. This does not mean that we no longer cry or that we forget, but it means we recover. The reason we recover is because of our hope. Jesus Christ talked about our hope in John 5:28, “… all those in the memorial tomb will hear his voice and come out “. Jesus was referring to the resurrection, this is our hope. 2 Cor.1:3 describes our Creator as,”… the God of all comfort “. One way that God comforts us is by moving people who care about us to give us words of encouragement that we need to hear. May the God of comfort, (Ps.83:18) be your comfort now during this time of sorrow.

    To the family of Harry Kent III. I am very sorry for your loss. God is a God of comfort. He invites us to come to him in times of distress. He comforts us with the hope that these stressful and painful times will come to an end soon. Revelation 21:3,4; Acts 24:15.

    Harry Jr., Jennifer and Family,

    I am so sorry to hear of Harry’s passing. You’re son was a wonderful element of the lives of many. Personally, it was his ability to truly be present with me in conversation, laughter, music and embrace. When I think of time with him, I think of him listening deeply to people speak, to the music of others (not just what he was playing) and to the moment at hand. I’ll never forget sitting next to the Yellowstone river with him and some friends and how he absorbed the moment. He sat, looked and listened – unwaveringly – to the river slide by downstream. He is downstream from us now, but he is listening. He can hear how much we love him. My thoughts are with you as you grieve for Harry.

    My condolences,

    Brody

    Please accept my condolences for your loss. I knew Harry only briefly and from a distance. But he brought much joy to me and my family. Each summer around July 4th Harry and his friend Jack would play for a group of friends who gathered to celebrate with the Haugen family. And each summer, he and Jack impressed us over and over again with their abilities. It seemed they could play anything–and play it well. My grandchildren, my wife, and I want to thank your son for the happiness he and his music brought to us.

    Mike G.
