|Now for the peace that always evaded him.|
On January 1, 2016, Kamm left this earth to continue the timeless journey that each of us travels. His brief stay here touched and enriched us all. He was funny, loving, and always generous. He made us smile, he made us laugh, and he made us cry. He was an incredible friend, confidante, and son. He was deeply loved and he returned that love with abandon.
Kamm, you are forever in our hearts and we will miss you, your passion, and your amazing spirit. We raise our glasses to you and toast our good fortune to have had you in our lives. Godspeed, beautiful man, Godspeed.
If you have memories, condolences, or photos of Kamm, please feel free to share them on this site.

"How fast a year passes. Kamm is still in our thoughts - very much missed by his Uncle Joe and Grandma Peggie."
"Today is the one year anniversary your life light as we know blew out. Your death has left a huge hole in my heart which only a mother who loses her only child knows. I look for you around every corner, listen to the sounds of the winds in case I hear your voice, I search for the fragrance in hope you may be present, and I reach out for a hug you gave so willing and I find there is none. My heart is broken a much today as it was a year ago. I love you and miss you so very much."
"The last time I saw Kamm, he had just travelled to Arizona to help celebrate his Grandma Peggie’s 95th birthday (and his step Granddad John’s 101st birthday). As a special present, Kamm took his Grandma to the local mall on a cloths shopping spree. Just like Kamm – kind, generous and devoted to his Grandma Peggie. She still talks about their adventure to the mall.

"Someone at work brought up Sake today, I immediately thought of you. one of my favorite memories with you was all the way back in 2011. You had come down from Ft. Collins to visit me in Littleton. We decided to go on a mini road trip to Colorado Springs with my sister, because she had to coach a gymnastics meet down there and she wanted to hang out with you too. we ended up not even going into the meet with her. It was just me and you and the first bottle of Sake id ever had. we didn't do anything crazy or go on some ridiculous adventure that night, instead we sat in the Jetta, shared a bottle of Sake, listened to music and talked for about 5 hours. I learned a lot about you that night, fears and goals, how important family and friendship was to you, and i learned every word to your favorite song (at the time) Deuces. i think we listened to it at least 20 times! I know random things that people say or songs i hear will bring so many more memories of our friendship back to me, but I am thankful for those memories, and I am thankful that I got to know you and call you a friend. Ill never forget you and ill never stop thinking about you and what a special person you were. I love you Kamm Kamm my cheerleading man, and ill miss you forever."
"Hugs And Prayers"
"I remember the night that Zach and I gave you an absolutely terrible pickup line to use. We picked a random girl and sent you at her. Your confidence and inner awesomeness shined through and she did in fact give you her number. We may have lost the bet to you that night, but it was fantastic. The world won't be the same without you, my friend. We're all forever changed for having known you.
I find myself working to better myself everyday since you left us. Not as a new year resolution, but because you'd kick my ass if I weren't being the best me possible. Love you and miss you my friend."
"I had the honor to know Kamm for just a few years when I lived in Fort Collins...each and every time I was around him, he was always a gentleman. And I loved his gentle soul and huge smile. My heart aches and hopes that you know how truly you were loved by so many people. Tonight I'll light a candle in your honor and I'll think of the fun times. Rest in peace young man... you are missed."
"The last time I saw you was on Christmas. You didn't want me to be alone when I was going through a hard time. You were there for me, I walked through the front door and I hear you yell "PAGANNNNO" while in the kitchen. I remember you almost throwing away your Christmas turkey because you were frustrated that you didn't have enough space in the kitchen. You were making fun of Tyler and I for eating to many black olives while you snuck outside to talk with Kinsey.
I am so thankful for this past summer. That was when we became good friends. You were the only one that would always take me up on going to Horsetooth to swim and lounge around, you would be at my house in a heartbeat or always answer my calls when I was dealing with a panic attack. We would decide we wanted to make tacos at 2am and play video games until we fell asleep sitting up. My favorite memory was going to the Sliders 4th of July BBQ and at the last minute we drove over to your old place, you grabbed one of Sal's bikes and we rode as fast as we could down to City Park to watch the fireworks. It was so crowed we decided just to lay down in the middle of the road (we had the best spot) You threw me a birthday party when you moved into a new place and made sure I had a beer in my hand at all time that night.
I have a million things I wish I would have said to you and I find myself still not believing that you are gone. Flying back to Colorado from being gone for New Years I couldn't get you out of my head. It was like when I got back to Fort Collins it all sank in. I've never lost a friend so close to me and I loved you like a brother. You used to always kiss my forehead when I was sad or going through a hard time and tell me to "MAN UP PAGANO" then you would give me a playful punch in my shoulder.
I'll always remember poker nights, beer pong shenanigans, complaining how much my palm hurt after losing terribly to you in Golden Tee, you always let me finish your food, and were always so quick to buy me a drink and ask me how my day was.
Rest in peace my friend. You will always own a piece of my heart."
"It has been a few days since you have passed and I am still numb. Watching you grow up was so special. So many memories... You will continue to hold a special place in my heart. Know you were loved and cherished and never will be forgotten. RIP Kamelot."
"Kamm, where do I begin? We have had such a crazy relationship. And I have always cared so much about you, whether I told you enough or not. It still seems so unreal, who's going to come watch football with me or have a beer with me cuz no one else will. Who's going to call me all the lovely names as well as Taylor and my most hated, princess. I don't know why I hated it so much but I'd give anything to hear that from you one more time. Who else am I going to flirt with like a 12 year old while being made fun of for it and being told we are going to be split up?! Thank you for always being there for me even when you didn't want to. And I am most thankful that I got blessed to be your new years kiss while I was working and didn't think I'd have one, after you showed up late and asked me if I was worried you wouldn't be there before midnight :) just like you to say such a thing. I'll always miss whooping you in Tekken while you got so mad because I always used the same character yet you couldn't beat me when we both played the same character. I am so happy to have your hat to stay with me forever and I will always cherish our memories. My heart hurts without you here but I know you will always be with us and already visited us during football at the bar. Wish I could have done anything for you to make you feel better but I know you are no longer hurting and will always keep watch over us. You always said how I'd smile more than I was before when we were together and you're right, I'll keep the smile while I remember you, and as soon as I lose it I know you'll be watching over and bringing it back. Love you always and forever."
"It was only a few weeks ago we were talking about our beloved Donkeys and getting to the Superbowl at Slides. You will surely be missed my brother. Peace."
Thank you for sharing your big heart and big smile with me. You gave the best hugs and your sly smile always brightened me up. You were one in a million and you will be missed forever. Please rest in peace and know how many people love you and what an impact you really made on all who knew you."
"I wrote a story for you under the story section so I will light a candle in your memory"
"Kamm, I have a ton of memories of you that I can share. They start with Grammies Bumblelino. Your sense of humor started early with you and a broomstick walking up some deck stairs saying, "I'm going to mess you up." You were 3 at the time. The blueberry pancakes, the 4th of July at Quinessett, the lobster roe in Cape Cod. All great memories. Shannon and I got to spend a summer with you and Aunt Nancy, I'll always remember the camping trip we all took in Utah. But my favorite memory was the family reunion in the Bahamas. You put a smile on Chasens face every day we were there. I miss you tons and my heart is breaking but I hope you have found peace. I love you"
"Hey, buddy. I'm just laying here, and thinking of you and talking to you. I know you can hear me up there. Calling me "dananimal" Just letting you know how much I miss you and laughing all the goofy things you did and said. You always could make me laugh and cheer me up when I was down! , haha:)!! . Thinking about it now is making me giggle! You were such a kind and wonderful person. I will carry you with me always my friend. You are missed by so many, and loved by all who knew you ! You touched so many hearts. I love you . And I will you see again, my friend"
"Today's Broncos game - in my heart - is dedicated to Kamm Lentz. Nobody bled orange and blue like you.
I'm at a loss for words. All the laughter you brought me, all the hearts and lives you touched...you will be sorely and severely missed.
Please love one another harder than ever today and every day, friends. I love you all."
"I know we were not too close but you were bar family and always will. We will never forget you Kamm and how loud and funny you were watching every Broncos game. You may be gone but your spirit lives on in everyone you cane to know. We all love you and will miss you dearly little man."
"It has been so long since we spoke Kamm Kamm, but I will forever remember your protective nature over our house of girls, your bulldog personality towards anyone threatening us harm. I will forever remember the laughs, the smiles, the jokes, the crazy, the emotional, the touching moments. I have a handful of memories compared to your best friends, your family. I feel for them. My heart is aching for them. May us all find peace and lessons in this. You are at rest. You are free. Love you buddy. Love you so damn much. Everyone is right when they say how special you were."
