In Memory

Kent Himes

Born 06-29-1954
Died: 01-18-2010
 
Kent was born June 29, 1954, in Blackwell, Oklahoma, to Gary Coleman Himes and Carolyn Sue (Root) Himes, both of whom preceded him in death. Kent's family moved to Edmond in 1962, and except for a few brief periods, he lived in Edmond most of the rest of his life.
 
Kent worked in sales, and could always turn a stranger into a friend. Children and animals always seemed to be drawn to Kent because of his gentle nature and natural good humor.
 
Kent was a proud veteran of the US Marine Corps, serving most of his duty in Okinawa.
 
Kent is survived by his son, KC Himes of Edmond; his stepdaughter, Christina Luper of Edmond; his granddaughter, Kaitlin Ditmore of Edmond; his ex-wife, Carmen Himes of Edmond; brothers, Gary Himes of Tulsa and Ladd Himes of Edmond; and numerous nieces and nephews. Our lives and the lives of his many friends are poorer as a result of his passing.
