Words cannot express how much I miss you. I'm glad that we shared a wonderful friendship. I'm going to miss calling you every birthday and hear you say "Lawd Jesus Tazh; me neva remember; thanks; I really appreciate it". I'm blessed to have you a part of my life from 1995 - 2010. You were truly God's masterpiece a gem in all its splendor. Although you passed at 43 you have contributed much to many lives - with your unconditional love. Many who are much older than you is yet to contribute half of what you did. Mei your precious soul rest in peace. I am still crying. I guess its going to take awhile to get past this but I do celebrate your past good life. I truly miss you Kent. Close

SO HARD TO SAY GOOD BYE  / Michelle Thomas (IMS Family )

Hey Hardie Boy (My Nickname for you)

 I can almost hear you saying "wha tek yuh so long?" I wanted to write before now. But I wasn't ready still not ready to accept that you are gone and paying tribute make it seem all too real. But as is said; all good things must come to an end and boy was it good between us at IMS. I remember the talks the jokes the comradrie. Where else are we going to find another 'Calamity Joe' to laugh at? You were really good at laughing at yourself and even had the audacity to share them with us which often times left us crying from deep gut-wrenching laughter or on the floor rolling around panting to catch a breath. People sometimes wonder if I was crazy; as sometimes there's this sudden burst of memory and I can't help but burst out laughing usually in a crowded environment all because of some situation you've shared at one time or another. Funny enough it always seem to have the same effect as if you were telling it for the first time. For so long it was you me and Henry the three musketeers never thought the story would end like this but for sanity's sake I have to accept reality and say goodbye for now friend. You have been loved you will be missed and you'll always hold a special place in my heart.

Hey! I am expecting to see you in the RAPTURE. Oh what a joyous reunion that will be.

Walk good fellow musketeer and we at IMS promise to look out for those loved ones you hold dear.

I miss you kenton you let me know wat heaven on earth felt like and now the world seem a little smaller without you in it you led by your examples you gave of yourself without boundary you loved unconditionally my life as been blessed with you in it thanks for bein you i love you kenton i miss you so much you will be in my heart always Close

Spotless / Correen Fagan (co-worker/friend)

You were spotless unblemished untarnished by the world. You were blessed. You bless others by your love and friendship and you were blessed by their love and friendship. There was a knock at your door and you look out the angels were out inviting to come you accepted but you forget one thing-to say goodbye.

A Consummate Professional: Gone Too Soon

“Some people come into our lives and quickly go. Some stay for a while and leave footprints on our hearts. And we are never the same.” ~ Unknown

Kenton Hardy was the consummate professional master at his craft a dear friend and a most dependable support to all his UTech colleagues who relied so heavily on him to ensure that every University milestone was recorded and documented for posterity.
I remember Kenton most of all for his pleasant and jovial demeanour and the friendly banter we exchanged when I called him almost every morning to book yet another event to add to his busy roster. His response was always “Yes I’ll be there.” Such was his passion for his work and his commitment to meeting the demands of his role as chief Audio Visual Technologist in the Instructional Media Services Department.
We are deeply saddened by the loss of a gentle but very effective ‘giant’. His substantial archive built up over the past twenty one years is testament to his contribution to the building of the institutional memory of the University of Technology Jamaica.
We will truly miss you. Walk good dear Brother and Friend. Our lives have been better for having been in your company.

Michelle Beckford

Mr. Hardy as I called him was very dedicated willing and timely in his disposition to help source speeches to test students. Members of the Communication Division in the Faculty of Education and Liberal Studies are grateful for having been on the receiving end of such a dedicated professional. His example will be followed as he is greatly missed.


Condolences are extended to his immediate family with prayers that God will provide them with the needed comfort at this time of grief.

Mr.Hardy... the tutor of many lessons i can surely attest to...a perfectionist he was... but never in an overbearing way...his penmanship put many to shame (what a man write neat!!)...

Mr.Hardy could produce excellent pictures i tell you... we always wanted more and more .... and he never refused to give us...

you are the clear definition of UNFORGETTABLE!!!

 you'll be missed Mr.Hardy.... missing you even now....

My condolence to all...
