Kent Christopher Owen died December 5, 2015. He began his life in Owen County, Indiana, and being a seventh generation Hoosier was ideally suited to become Indiana editor of The American Spectator when it relocated to our nation’s capital thirty years ago, as well as the interlocutor of The Saturday Evening Club West. Kent was present for the early days of the Spectator and offered great companionship between sips of bourbon and puffs of an ever present pipe. In a resonant baritone he would offer considered opinions on literature, music, politics, contemporary life, and of course spin Hoosier yarns. He will be deeply missed by all who knew him. God bless you, Kent, and may God help his family through his passing.
