Condolences & Memories (2 entries)
deepest condolences from Antoinette, Frank and John and families to Ron and June Kent and all your family. Just discovering that your father has passed away. I have worked on the hisory of Kents in Brandon where your Mother Alice and your Dad Fred, helped prepare our Dad to open Kents Accordion College in Brandon in 1948. He had recently returned from overseas where he was an entertainer for the Canadian troups. We have a few photos from Belgium and Holland. I'm sure, Ron, you will remember our Dad. It was always a pleasure to have Fred visit us at our home and of course, he would spend time at the Studio. Would love to hear from you. So would Frank and John. - Posted by: Antoinette Scinocca (daughter of Mike Scinocca who ran Kents in Brandon till 1993 ) on: May 21, 2013
