Admiration and respect were common shared sentiments during Kent Downey’s retirement celebration, December 17, 2009.  To start off the festivities, Steve Jones made a trip down memory lane with the numerous accomplishments and milestones Kent had made during his professional career at United over the past 35 years.

Kent’s wife, Kathy along with their daughter, Karry, her husband, Zack and their two children, Lily (Age 2) and Kayla (32 days old) came to help celebrate Kent’s outstanding career.  Kent’s son, Kevin, his wife, Lisa, and brand new baby boy, Shane (30 days old), also came in for a much appreciated surprise visit from Chicago.

Kent, thank you for everything you’ve done for United.  We wish you and your family all the best!
