+title: 'In Memory of Kent “kentnl” Fredric'
+---
+
+Gentoo mourns the sudden loss of Kent Fredric, also known to us by his IRC
+handle kent\n. He passed away following a tragic accident a few days ago.
+
+Kent was an active member of the Gentoo community for many years. He
+tirelessly managed Gentoo's Perl support, and was active in the Rust project
+as well as in many other corners. We all remember him as an enthusiastic,
+bright person, with lots of eye for detail and constant willingness to help
+out and improve things.
+On behalf of the world-wide Gentoo community, our heartfelt condolences go out
+to his family and friends.
+
+Please join us in remembering Kent [on the Gentoo forums](https://forums.gentoo.org/viewtopic-t-1130094.html).
