Kent died Nov. 22, 2022. He was born in Denver in December 1940. 

He came to us from Cherry Creek High School in Denver, majored in chemical engineering, took his meals at Quadrangle Club, and belonged to the AIChE and the Rocky Mountain Empire Club. A 35-year career at Marathon Oil’s research facility in Littleton, Colo., with five years in the middle in Burghausen, Germany, followed. 

Kent’s passion for the outdoors, sailing, and skiing in the Colorado mountains, was central to his enjoyment of life, and he was widely liked and regarded as a lively and humorous key member of the team wherever he went. A fourth-generation Colorado native, he was a member of the Dillon Yacht Club for decades. 

Kent is survived by his wife of 57 years, Suzanne; children Kurt, Lisa, and Barkley; seven grandchildren; and his brother Peter. The class sends its condolences to his family on their loss of this quiet, productive, and caring man who knew how to get the most out of life.
