In case you've ever wondered what happened to Leslie Gent, from our DeVry days,
Bob Holt managed to find some info on him.
Seems he lived out his life in Oakville - to a ripe old age of 94 - may he RIP.

Duane (early days at DeVry)
From Bob Holt
"I think most people that knew Duane would agree - he was a very amiable fellow.
Too bad most of us only knew him for a short while.
I did manage to see him a few times in Calgary, when I lived there in the early 70's. He was always smiling! "
