Jimmie Lan Kent, 82 of Mammoth Spring, Arkansas passed away peacefully on January 16th, 2021. He was born June 20th, 1938 in Ash Flat, Arkansas.

He was proceeded in death by his parents James W. Kent, and Virgie M. Kent, his previous wife Willo Dean Kent, and two Brothers Donald D. Kent and Bobby G. Kent and his oldest daughter Julia Ann Kent.

He is survived by his loving wife of 52 years Ellen Louisa Kent, and his 3 daughters Judith E. Kent, Leatrice K. Wallace and her husband Kelly Wallace, and Elizabeth A. Simmons, and his only son Cameron Wiley Kent and many grand and great-grandchildren, and two brothers Willie D. Kent and Jerry Roger Kent, all whom he loved very dearly.
Jim Kent grew up close to his 4 brothers and worked hard from an early age starting as a Hotel Bellhop and working his way to being a Union Accounting Officer. In Jim’s twenties he was disabled in a tragic car accident that took the life of his first wife while placing him in a coma for half of a year while his family cared for his two eldest daughters. Jim underwent multiple surgeries and later found faith and through determination and his wife Ellen, was able to have a quality life for the rest of his days.

Jim Kent was a loving husband, father and grandfather and went through life with a heart open to all without question or hesitation. When advice was needed, or guidance was asked for he always had the answers to get you through life’s many problems. He enjoyed simple things in life-like cruising in his car, his coffee, reading his newspaper, sitting at the park overlooking the spring and his love for Jehovah.

Jim Kent had many obstacles in his life and never shrugged away from responsibilities as a man. His life was spent with his wife at his side, loving & caring for him until his last days. He will be missed by all, and remembered by generations to come as the kindhearted, smart, and well-spoken gentleman that always put family first. He will truly be missed.
