Daley of Kill Devil Hills, N.C. He was preceded in death by his paternal grandmother, Mae Christensen Alcorn; and his maternal grandmother, Perrine Mitchell Daley. Quent was a quiet, natural leader who loved life inside and outside the classroom. From Indian Guides through Boy Scouts, Quent made wonderful friendships with both boys and adults as they all grew up together. Quent was a member of Troop 400, where he became the senior patrol leader, Eagle Scout, and led his trip to Philmont. From fly fishing trips on the head waters of Atlantic Creek to the summit of Mt. Rainier to sailing on Fishing Bay, Quent would always lend a helping hand and take on any challenge. Quent started at St. Christopher's School in JK and graduated as a leader on and off the field. He was the captain of his wrestling team and VISAA state champion two years in a row. Quent followed his academic passion for chemistry to UVA, where he had just finished his third year. Quent pledged Theta Chi Fraternity and was the fraternity president. Quent loved his fraternity brothers and they loved him. Community was a part of his life and he always found time to give back. Following his passion for wrestling, he helped coach at St. Christopher's and Albemarle High School. He also enjoyed his time at Madison House. Quent's life was measured not only by his incredible accomplishments, but even more so by the positive impact he had on those who knew him. His brother, Christian enjoyed his friendship and always looked to his example for guidance. It was this brotherhood, which Quent extended to countless others, that truly made him special. A memorial service will be held 2 p.m. Thursday, June 18, at St. Paul's Episcopal Church, 815 E. Grace St. Burial in Hollywood Cemetery will be private.
