Kent was born May 24th, 1943 to William and Barbara Woodward. Kent passed away 2/27/2021 peacefully at home after a long battle with pancreatic cancer.
Kent is survived by his beautiful loving fiance' Nancy and her children, Kent’s children Mike (Shauna), Tanna (John), Derrick (Cindy) and loving grandchildren and great grandchildren, his siblings Sheryl (Paul), Peggy (Roger) Terry (Aida) and many friends. He is preceded in death by daughter Sherie.
Kent was an Army Veteran who served in Vietnam as a Crew Chief. He was also a police officer for Midvale City, Murray City and Salt Lake County Sheriff’s Dept.
Kent spent most of his life doing what he loved, restoring old cars, hunting, camping, and of course summers on the boat fishing. Kent loved the outdoors and made many friends along the way. People loved Kent! Everyone always wanted to be around him and listen to his stories about the past. If you didn't like Kent it was simply because you didn't take the time to know him. If he didn't like you (which there were very few) it was because he didn't understand who you were or where you came from.
Kent will be greatly missed and there is a huge void in our lives without him.
GO IN PEACE POPS AND FIND YOUR NEXT ADVENTURE! WE LOVE YOU!
