Kent C. Williamson

Paladin Media

Kent C. Williamson, producer and director of Paladin Media, known for When Love Walks In (2005), By War & By God (2016) and Stained Glass Rainbows (2015), was stuck by a drunk driver Friday August 2, 2019, along with some of his family members.

People all over social media were in shock of the news.

Tim Smith wrote, “Woke up this morning to news that you should never have to get. My college roommate was killed yesterday by a drunk driver. Kent C. Williamson was a good friend. His sister and her husband and his sister’s daughter were all in the car and all died at the scene. Kent leaves behind a wife and six kids. His sister and brother in law also leave behind six kids and their families. Please join me in prayer for this whole family! Kent’s parents are both still here and could really use prayer as well.”

Maria Webb posted, “This morning I heard about the tragic passing of Kent C. Williamson and three of his extended family members from being hit by a drunk driver.

I was an intern for Paladin Media Group for 2 years. It was in my second year when Kent did his first Fellows Program, that I really got to know him a lot more. Kent chose a plethora of books and films that he felt every young creative should experience, including the movie from which the quote above was taken as well as the book “Imagine. A Vision for Christians in the Arts” by Steve Turner. The intersection between art and Christianity is one topic of many that Kent was super passionate about. He would ask rhetorical questions like, “how is the world going to be transformed by the love and light of Jesus Christ, if Christians refuse to engage with the world?” This included the world of art and also politics, education, and culture in general.”

 

We will post more details as we are more informed about this tragic incident.
