Kent loved life and was so carefree and always willing to help anyone. His heart was so big, and he had a bright and promising future. Kent went to Abilene High School. He was always a quick learner and a very social person. He brightened up any place he went. He loved to help so many people and take care of them; he would never think about himself first. Kent could figure out anything he put his mind to or put his hands on – he had a gift like no other. Kent had 2 dogs, Brownie and Zeus, that he loved deeply. Kent had the most beautiful smile that was so contagious, and you couldn't help but love it.
The family first began in the funeral business in 1933. The Hamil's legacy, beginning with the Elliott's to John and Jo Ann Hamil and now continuing with Robert and Karla Hamil, is to serve families in their time of need.
