The Military Museums

Terence (Terry) John Kent (1941 - 2019) came to Canada from Surrey, England at the age of six with his mother, a war bride where they settled in Moose Jaw, Saskatchewan. Terry enjoyed all things military and was a member of the Royal Canadian Legion 285 for many years. He also joined the Calgary Naval Veterans Association and spent many Saturday mornings at the Corvette Club visiting with his Shipmates. He was also a volunteer Watchkeeper at the Calgary Naval Museum.

He loved music, especially Celtic and folk. He had a natural talent and a beautiful singing voice. Terry was a member and soloist with the Irish Cultural Society Choir for many years, and he even learned to sing in Irish. A highlight was performing in a musical theatre tribute to Percy French, Gortnamona, which was performed several times in Calgary and Vancouver. Terry also belonged to the Men Folk Singing group which met once a month to sit around in a circle and just sing, bringing out wonderful voices and harmonies for the joy of it.
