He was born June 14, 1936 in Idaho Falls, Idaho, from humble beginnings on an Idaho farm, to making sure everyone was warm and comfortable in Salt Lake City, Utah. Professionally he made it his goal to excel at providing heating and air conditioning for many of the largest institutions in the state of Utah and Wyoming. He also serviced many of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day-Saint temples and meeting houses. A devout member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day-Saints, he served in many callings including: High Priest Group Leader, Temple Coordinator, and as a Church Service Missionary with his wife Gladys. Kent had a warm welcoming smile, which he was well recognized for. It brought happiness to others. He had a quick wit and a great sense of humor. He loved to sing and would remember family and friends on their birthday with a song. As a youth he looked forward to attending dances with his high school sweetheart Beth. They spent many dates dancing together, for Kent was an amazing dance partner. Kent met Gladys at a church dance, spun her around and swept her off her feet. It was love at first sight. He was the son of Marvel Clinton Brown and Ida Elizabeth Childs. Survived by wife Gladys White Brown, daughters Connie (Leonard) Gundersen, and Charlene (Samuel) Craghead; son Ronnie Lee (Deborah) Brown, thirteen grandchildren and ten great grandchildren; step children; Teppi (Lance) Sessions, Teresa (Hunter) Haight, Paul (Teresa) White and eleven step grandchildren and one step great grandchild.
