Obituary

Oklahoma City, Oklahoma – With heavy hearts we say goodbye to Edgar B. Kent Sr. who passed away October 15, 2020 at his home in Oklahoma City. Services will be held on Monday, October 19, 2020 at 2 p.m. at the Strode Funeral Home Chapel in Stillwater, Oklahoma. Graveside Services will follow at the Iowa Tribe of Oklahoma Cemetery in Perkins, Oklahoma.

He was born on December 11, 1944 to Ben and Martha Kent in Pawnee Oklahoma. Edgar resided in the Perkins area most of his life until he went to the army. He served his country in the Army from 1963 to 1966 with the First Calvary Regiment First Armor Division Recon.

Edgar is preceded in death by his parents Ben and Martha Kent. Also preceding him in death was one sister, Darlene Kent and two nephews Robert and Eric Kent.

He leaves behind his wife of 48 years Alpha Marie Kent, one son Edgar B. Kent Jr., a grandson Allister Kent and his nieces and nephews who he loved dearly. He is also survived by his only brother Benjamin Kent Jr. as well as host of many relatives.

He was an active member of the Iowa Tribe of Oklahoma Tribal Veterans. (Please see attached write up from the Veterans Group Leader)

“Eddie, as most of his family knew him by while growing up, was a proud veteran of the U S Army. He spent a lot of his time serving overseas in Germany. In those days the only way of communication was through the US Postal Service, so he wrote letters as a means of communication to family.
Throughout Eddie’s life, he made a good living for his family as a husband and dad, also helping relatives where their needs existed. He was heavily involved with the Iowa veterans from the start, and when the organization was officially organized, he never missed a meeting. At that time the tribe recognized the group, so the veterans came up with a name and became known as the Greysnow Warriors of the Iowa Tribe of Oklahoma. Edgar attended all monthly meetings and supported all activities by his participation as color guard by parading in tribal, national and tribal flags, assisted in hosting veteran dances, and planning holiday activities for veterans. He was there when the Greysnow Warriors named themselves and set goals for the organization, he helped design the ITO veterans memorial at the Chena grounds, and always wanted to recognize all Iowa tribal veterans. As an elder of the group, he advised and prayed for veterans who suffered from time in service for their country and he rallied to get all veterans all services available through the US government Veteran Administration. He will be highly missed and good blessings of comfort to his wife Marie, son Edgar Jr. and brother Benjamin Jr. “ ~Linda BigSoldier~

Rest in Paradise my dearest Uncle Eddie, you were always a father to us, you loved us and cared for us our entire lives. You were always there through everything, every time we needed you, all the good times and bad times. You always told the story of how I was a cry baby as a newborn and the only way I would sleep was on your chest listening to your heartbeat. My heart is truly broken that you're gone but I am thankful that now you're home. I will always miss you and love you. I thank the Lord for you and for your love. Mvto
