RIP, Kent Allen Davy, d. July 29, 2019

I'll keep this brief.

Near as I can figure, my friend Kent Davy, known online in the expat community as Sperwer, was 69. Kent just passed away after a nasty fight with a rare cancer called "wild melanoma," which attacks the internal organs instead of the skin. He is survived by his wife Young and his daughter Annabelle, both pictured above.

I think the last time I'd communicated with Kent was in 2014—five years ago, back when he was in his bodybuilding phase. (This silence wasn't due to a falling-out or anything; we were simply doing our own respective things. But after being incommunicado for that long, I can't say I'd been a very good friend to him.) Then, in mid-April, I found out about the cancer thanks to an email from mutual friend Jeff Hodges. I offer my condolences to Young and to Annabelle, and to the good friends of Kent who doubtless feel his loss keenly.

The Latin motto that was Kent's email signature was: Qui audet adipiscitur.

Who dares wins.

RIP, Sperwer. Flights of angels sing thee to thy rest.

It sounds like he lived a good life on his own terms with the love of friends and family. And now the pain is gone. RIP!
