Maybe his CentOS machine is setup to use *Canadian* time zone file (in 
his case,
it was Eastern).  As a quick test, I'd suggest doing:

$ diff /etc/localtime /usr/share/zoneinfo/Canada/Eastern
$ diff /etc/localtime /usr/share/zoneinfo/US/Eastern

(or "Central", if local time zone is standard central time).

If he's on Canadian time, just copy the appropriate file from US subdirectory
over /etc/localtime to get back to US time.  Those darn politicians, there
should be a law to put into jail for life any politician who even thinks about
proposing any artificial time changes, with addition that they should write on
the wall a hundred time each day "street lights will be on same amount of time
no matter when or by how much the clock is moved"...
