Donald was born on September 21, 1932 in Otego and was the only son of the late Elmer and Beulah (Card) Lent. On April 10, 1955 he married the love of his life, the former Doris Bartlett at their home in Ithaca. They had a blessed union of over 64 years together.
Don owned Lent & Lent Ad Agency in Norwich, NY. After closing the ad agency, he drove bus for Oneonta Public Transit and in retirement had a merchandise tent at several county fairs for many years. He was an avid baseball fan that especially followed the Yankees. Don had a passion researching his genealogy and enjoyed any information he could get on Abe Lincoln and the Civil War. He often shared stories of his early years spent on the farm and the great life lessons taught by his beloved grandfather, Charles Card.
He leaves behind his wife, Doris Lent, of Otego; sons, Brian (Cindy) Lent of Dryden and Rusty (Sandy) Lent of Hampton, VA; grandchildren, Tom, John, Jennifer, Kristi, Christine and Michael; 12 great-grandchildren and a very special friend and neighbor Lee Emerson. He also leaves behind several nieces, nephews, cousins and great friends. In addition to his parents, he is predeceased by his daughter Tresea Diane (Lent) Hernendaz; sisters, Flora Taylor, Mary and Elizabeth ; special uncle Harold Lent and maternal grandparents Charles and Flora Card.
