For those that knew him, RIP Kent Lomont.
Gemtech's Facebook page mentioned that Kent Lomont passed on last night (01/26/12) around 6:30 pm mountain time.
He gave me a LOT of advice and was someone I always looked forward to seeing at SAR shows. While I knew his health was going downhill (he has been too ill to make the past few SAR shows), this still saddened and shocked me more than I would have suspected.
Kent did a lot of great things for this industry and was a character the likes of we'll not see again. He'll be in my thoughts tonight.
he will be missed. I bought my .50BMG rifle from Kent.
A sad day indeed. Over many years of going to the creek I always enjoyed stopping by his tables to chew the fat with him as long as he could stand me. He was always gracious and, quite the character.
RIP, Kent. You will be missed.
