Kent Scully – February 9, 2021
heavy heart we note the passing of Kent Scully who recently lost his battle
with Covid-19. Kent, a CPA and his
partner Chris Wolf, established Scully & Wolf, LLP in 1973. For several decades the firm audited cities,
towns, and non-profits throughout the State of Connecticut and during that time
developed many employees who would go on to successful careers in municipal
finance. The news of Kent’s passing will
sadden the many current and former CT-GFOA members who had the opportunity to
know him. Hopefully they will be
comforted by the memories they shared with Kent.
Continue to Stay Safe & Be Well!
