Kent T. Kilbourne, 91

A Driving Force

1931 - February 11, 2023

Kent T. Kilbourne, 91, of Skillman, died at home on February 11, 2023.

Kent was a loving and devoted husband, father, and grandfather. His great work ethic and kind disposition were a driving force for his superb sales skills at Kilbourne & Kilbourne, a four-generation family business based in Hopewell founded by his father, and continued by his son Tom. The company specializes in custom designed lapel pins and recognition products.

Away from work, Kent had many interests. He enjoyed learning about the world and different cultures and was an avid runner – always being the fastest in his age group. He had a passion for hiking and camping, and led trips for The Sierra Club. Since 1981, he and his wife Ann spent summers in their home on Nantucket Island.

Predeceased by his parents, Thomas B. and Emma Kilbourne, he is survived by his devoted wife, Ann, four children, Dave Kilbourne, Anne Fayen, Tom Kilbourne and his wife Liz Westergaard, and Kate Kilbourne, and two grandchildren, Ashe and Peter Kilbourne. ■
