Kent retired in 2015 from 43 years in city management, including 29 years as city manager of McMinnville. He started mowing and weeding a big NE Portland yard where he grew up, Other than hiring help for stacking rocks, Kent has done all the yard work himself. A pilgrimage to Scotland in 2019 provided inspiration for a stacked rock shrine in the back yard. What is now a massing of annuals for in the front, becomes a massing of tulips in early spring. Kent enjoys being outdoors and creating a different “garden pallette” each year.
