At the time, Matt Damon told WCVB that Kent would “fight (the disease) to a standstill.” the Boston Globe reported.
That was enough to keep Damon’s father going for the last few years, no doubt in part because of the bond he had with his son. “He’s all you could ever ask for in a son,” the elder Damon said to WCVB. “It’s been a wonderful ride being his dad.”
