Kevin Charles Kent
Kevin Charles Kent was taken from us suddenly and much too soon on February 14th, 2021.
Kevin was born on January 1st, 1957, to Anzel Riley Kent and Helen Mae Kent in Lebanon, Oregon and shortly thereafter they relocated to St. Helens, Oregon.
His father Anzel preceded him in death on December 10, 1990, and his mother Helen preceded him in death on August 22, 2011. Kevin was the youngest of three siblings. His sister, Cindy Bentley, preceded him in death on June 20th, 2020. His brother John Kent lives happily with his wife Joyce Kent in Beaverton, Oregon.
Kevin graduated from St. Helens High School in 1975 and worked for Friesen Lumber Company for 30 years.
Kevin was a devout Christian and dedicated 20 years of volunteer service at Sunset Park Community Church and at both Spring Meadows and Meadow Park Assisted Living Facilities where Kevin assisted with church services for their residents.
Kevin married the love of his life Peggy Ann Kent on August 5th, 1994. They spent 26 beautiful years married and living in Columbia City, Oregon with Peggy's children: Donald "Bubba" Hubbs, Robert Hubbs and Linda Stafford (Horn).
Kevin and Peggy loved to camp at Fort Stevens Park and spending time with their grandchildren Robert, Joseph, Ethan and Kamryn Hubbs.
Kevin was kind and patient man who never had a bad word to say about anyone. Kevin loved to joke around, and his smile and laugh were infectious.
Kevin's loved ones would describe him as devoted in his faith in the Lord and his deep love for his wife Peggy who he took a great deal of pleasure taking care of. Kevin always had a companion dog by his side who he cared for in sickness and in health.
Kevin's family is celebrating his life and his union with the Lord at 11 a.m. on Saturday, February 20th, 2021, at Columbia River Foursquare Church in St. Helens. The service will be streamed on YouTube by the church if people are unable to attend in person.
Online condolences may be sent to the family at Columbia Funeral Home.
Funeral arrangements are entrusted to Columbia Funeral Home, 503-397-1154.
