Saugerties, April 1 – John W. Lent, 96, a member of the Saugerties Town Board 34 years, died Thursday night at his home in Glasco, following a long illness.
Mr. Lent, who is said to be the oldest living Odd Fellow in the state, was a member of the William H. Raymond Lodge, IOOF, for 75 years.
He was widely known in area political circles, having served as a member of the town’s Republican Central Committee in addition to his 34 years on the town board. He retired from that post in 1950.
A member of the Glasco Methodist Church 76 years, Mr. Lent was the oldest lay delegate of the New York Conference of the Methodist Church.
He also was a past president of the Glasco Fire Company.
Born in Naugatuck, Conn., Mr. Lent came to Glasco when he was 10 years of age. He later owned and operated the Lent Brick Manufacturing Company, retiring form that position in 1914.
A son of the late Robert and Catherine Conklin Lent, Mr. Lent is survived by a daughter, Miss Laura Lent, Glasco; a son, Robert W. Lent, Kingston; two grandchildren, a great grandchild and a sister, Mrs. Lillian Amouroux of Beacon.
