With heavy hearts, we must share the sad news of the passing of former Commodore Kent Goldsmith, a man who truely embodied joie de vivre.
Mr. Goldsmith served as DCYC's thirty-second commodore in 1987. 

In memory of Kent Goldsmith

Kent was DCYC’s 32nd (1987)  Commodore as well as Harbor Master many times. Kent and his beautiful wife Marlyn could often be seen leaving the harbor at dusk for a night armed only with a few bottle of red wine, return time unknown.

One of the highlights each year was an invitation to the Goldsmith New Beaujolais Party. Kent would have many cases of the new year Beaujolais wine brought in just for the party at his house.

Kent's sense of humor was sharp, mainly to see who he could put on edge. He was almost always very effective at achieving his goal!

Kent was also the Oak Point Mayor two times and helped the city though some tough times.

He will be missed by all that knew him well.

We are so grateful to Kristin Lyon for these images. 

Note: We will post updates about arrangements here, so please check back.
