Kenton Wilson, 61, Bloomington

Kenton Ardee Wilson, 61, Bloomington, formerly of Kokomo, passed away Sunday, Dec. 1, in Tucson, Ariz., following an 11-month battle with cancer.

Born in Kokomo June 19, 1952, to Bonnie and Ardee Wilson, he was a 1970 graduate of Haworth High School and attended Indiana University Kokomo.

Kent was a chef by profession and cooked in numerous restaurants before becoming the executive chef at the Wabash Country Club and Tippecanoe Country Club. He then opened his own restaurant, Sportsman's Inn on Lake Manitou, Rochester, with his wife, Christine, and later The Soup to Nuts in Nashville.

Kent is survived by his two sons, Kenton Ardee Wilson II (Tia) of Columbus and Casey Michael Wilson of Bloomington, and their mother, Christine Wilson Wanner. Other survivors include his sisters, Mona Harrison, Becky Bitner of Kokomo and Mary Reed (Greg) of Sahuarita, Ariz.; niece, Chris Dyar; nephews, Doug Bitner, Matt Harrison, Guy Harrison, Devin Reed, Jake Reed; and several great-nieces and -nephews. He will also be missed by a multitude of good friends, especially Kevin Carey and Jon McCleary.

An open house will be conducted at Kent's request on Friday, Dec. 13 from 6 to 9 p.m. at the Ibn Saud Grotto, U.S. 31, Kokomo, with a celebration of Life at 7 p.m. All friends and family are invited to come and remember someone taken home much too soon whose loving wit and humor and Black Bean Soup will long be remembered. Bon Appétit!
