Barton Kent

Barton “Bart” Kent, 68, died on April 14 in Canajoharie N.Y.

Born May 20, 1942, in Boston, he moved to the Vineyard in 1971 to raise his family.

He leaves behind his daughter, Christine Kent Leduc of Osterville, and her children Ryan, Matthew and Lauren; his son, Barton Kent Jr. of VineyardHaven, and his children, Nicklas and Genny; his stepdaughters, Laura Maciel of West Tisbury and her children, Jordan, Trevor, Taylor, and Ethan, and Pam Jones of Colorado Springs and her children, Austin and Erin. He also is survived by his two sisters, Marlene Wiley of Illinois, and Dianne Courtois of Boston, and many friends on the Vineyard and in Canajoharie N.Y.

Bart enjoyed spending time on his boat fishing, hunting, watching auto racing, and hanging out with his yellow Lab, Chad.

He will be forever in the hearts of those who knew him.

The family will have a private memorial service for him at a later date.
