Title: In Memorium...
Post by: Elaine Kessinger on February 17, 2017, 11:23:02 AM
Not sure where we want something like this, but...

Mr. Comer reports the passing of Hank Trent, this morning around 1:30am, after a long sufferance with cancer.

To Mrs. Trent, sincere condolences. Mr. Trent contributed so very much to the hobby in so many ways and will be missed.

I know many newer folks won't know why they ought to be mournful at Mr Trent's passing, but trust me: he and Mrs Trent are responsible for a tremendous amount of the forward progress in history-heavy citizen research and application, and he will be missed. A Lot.

Linda, if you happen to log on to read---much love and affection from my corner of the world.

Damn, I am really sorry to hear that. I really enjoyed our exchanges here. He was not only knowledgeable, but his personality came alive from his writing.

So sorry to hear about Mr. Trent.  I have enjoyed his posts here during the 4 years I've been on this board.

I'm especially thinking of the excellent long discussion Mr. Trent started here on "Controversial Impressions at Mainstream Events."  I just reread it.

I've found out that he also was a frequent contributor on the "Civil War Talk" forum, where his posts were always informative and well-reasoned.
