We just learned that one of the Past Presidents of our HLAA Nashville Chapter, Kent Bessee, has recently passed away. He was 77 years old.

Kent had been very involved in the early years with our Chapter, hosting yard sales to raise funds for our chapter. We met with Kent earlier this year to see what he had been up to since his retirement as a Financial Analyst with Verizon. Kent was very active in the Benevolence Program at the Donelson Church of Christ, collecting clothing, food and donations for the homeless and veterans. He gave the Emmanuel Lutheran Church Food Pantry cases of peanut butter, canned vegetables, rice, family boxes, and other misc items from their food pantry.

A Celebration of Life service will be held on Sat., July 15, 2017 at Donelson Church of Christ, 2706 Old Lebanon Rd, Nashville, TN 37214. Visitation from 12-1pm with service immediately following.
