Kent was born Kent Wayne Jordan on June 5, 1958 in Canyon, Texas to Max Bryan Jordan and Ruth Elizabeth Jordan. He was a very inquisitive child manifesting his curiosity with questions upon questions which was a trait used throughout adulthood. He grew up in Levelland graduating from Levelland High in 1976. He attended South Plains College - He began working and earning money at an early age in life. While still in school he worked at Chat and Chew in Levelland. In adulthood, he worked as a reservation agent for Braniff Airlines in Dallas, was a Co - Owner of a travel Agency in Dallas, was a sales manager for TCI Paint Warehouse Company in Lubbock. He was successful later in life as a landscaper owning Landscapes by Kent in Lubbock. His health began failing and he had to go on dialysis when he was 59.
He married Beverly Wilson in 1983 in Dallas. They enjoyed traveling, entertaining plus sharing lots of good times with her Children and family.
Kent always enjoyed friends making new ones in every walk of life.
He loved his 3 brothers Mike, Clay and Jack. He and Jack had a special bond as they became home buyers and fixes uppers for Kent's residences. He had many fine homes but the one that truly brought him happiness was the modest home they bought in Spur, Texas in 2015. He remodeled it and settled into living a life among small community people with compassionate hearts larger than life itself. In Spur, Kent found the meaning of true friendship, loving thy neighbor, caring, sharing, laughter and joy. He made the Community Bible Chapel his church home where his spirit grew.
