We were surprised and saddenen when Jim Kentner called to tell us about Dub's passing. We remember fondly all the trips to Chicken Annies and all the tomatoes, etc. from Dubs garden. Sorry we cannot be there now but will try for the Kentner reunion in August. We will keep Kathryn and Debbie in our prayers.

It is with heavy hearts that we mourn the loss of Dub Kentner. He was a quiet man with his words, but was heard loud & clear regarding family values and work ethic. L.W. could be found in the field hard at work, pushing dirt with his dozer or at home, spending time with his family. Dub left each of us with many memories and words of guidance and I will cherish those forever. RIP Uncle Dub.
