Tribute to Kent Ruffino

My brother, Kent, died in a car crash on June 12th while I was on my trip to Europe and I didn't find out until I got back because I was out of contact.

He was a 19 year old college student and was a medic in the Army Reserves. He still had his whole life ahead of him. My biggest regret is that I didn't get to know him better because he lived with my mom up in Riverside County and I only saw him a few times a year.

    I remember that day! It was horrible! He is greatly missed to this day. I hope your family is doing well.

  3. Kent was a quiet kid he liked x men. He knocked out bullies when he had to. He loved his brother Patterson and animals. He like going to his friends house watching music videos and pizza and pastor tacos.
