Brian Howard Kenthack, 58, of Pinehurst and formerly Encinitas, California went home to be with the Lord on Sunday, May 31, 2020 at FirstHealth Moore Regional Hospital.

A native of Somerville, New Jersey, he was the son of Howard Kenthack and
the late Helen Kenthack. He was predeceased by his adoptive mother
Patricia Gerstle and niece Samantha Ahimovic.

Brian was a US Navy Veteran and retired from the U.S. Postal Service in
2013. He spent over 30 years in sunny SoCal, residing in the San Diego
area. Brian relocated to Pinehurst in 2018 to help his brother care for
their father and to be closer to family. Golfing and quality time with
family and close friends were his passions in this world. He knew Jesus
Christ as his Lord and Savior, and drew tremendous strength from his faith
every day, frequently offering an ear, kind words, and encouragement to
others. He was a "true" and very dear friend to so many, maintaining close
ties with long-time friends from NJ and CA. Not surprisingly, he quickly
forged many new friendships locally over the last two years. Brian worked
at Pinehurst Resort and spent as much time as possible out on the course
working hard to improve his already impressive game. He had 5 "aces", his
most recent last year on Course #4. We will all forever remember his
favorite gestures, a peace sign or a thumbs-up and always a smile. We will
see you again in heaven our dear brother, uncle, cousin and friend!

In addition to his father, he is survived by his brother Todd Kenthack and
wife Terese of Southern Pines; two sisters, Sharon Kenthack of Bethesda,
Maryland and Beverly Hopf of Flemington, New Jersey; his beloved aunt, Mrs.
Lois Marzzacco; three nieces, Sarah and Katelyn Kenthack, and Julie Kloner;
two nephews, Jeremy Hopf and Philip Kloner; six cousins and countless close
friends who Brian considered family.

A Celebration of Life will be held at Pinelawn Memorial Park on June 10th
at 11am.

Memorials may be made to Christ Community Church, 220 Campground Rd, West
End, NC 27376.
