Jonathan L. (Jon) Kent, passed away this past Friday, October 22, 2021, in the afternoon, at his condo in Los Angeles. This was not COVID-related, if one might ask.
Jon lived his life as a champion. He suffered an injury in a car accident 42 years ago that left him a quadriplegic. 42 years in that condition would be more than I, and probably most, could contemplate.
His doctors predicted that he would live, at most, 6 years after the accident. Yet, Jon faced every day with a smile and a clever comment or joke that constantly brought light into the lives of the people around him.
I think of his life as one of God’s gifts and a miracle and Jon took everything in stride making the best of everything. May the Good Lord rest his wonderful soul!
Jon is survived by his sisters, Rahel & Lonnie, his brother, Howard, his nieces Lillian & Isabella and his mother, Florence.
Jon will be laid to rest at: FT. LOGAN NATIONAL CEMETERY 4400 WEST KENYON AVENUE, DENVER, CO 80236 (303) 761-0117 on Monday, November 8, 2021, at 10:00 a.m.
If there is an additional service, I will update this post.
If you are so inclined, in lieu of flowers, you may donate in Jon’s memory to Paralyzed Veterans of America, Disabled Veterans of America, Wounded Warriors, or a related veteran’s organization.
