To his family, friends and acquaintances, the passing of Steven L. Kent Sr. was not an ending but a beginning; not a time of weeping but a time of rejoicing.  A time of rejoicing for a father, husband, brother, grandfather, uncle and friend who unconditionally loved and enjoyed sharing life with his family and friends.

Steven Lee Kent Sr. was born in Abington, Pennsylvania on April 17, 1953.  Born to Odessa Kendrick Brown and William Kent Sr., was called home on Wednesday, November 17, 2010.  Steven was affectionately known to his family and friends as "Broadway" for his admiration of football great, Joe Namath.  Steve accepted Christ at an early age and was baptized at Antioch Baptist Church. 

He graduated from Upper Dublin High School in 1971 and continued his education at Montgomery County Community College majoring in Business Administration.  Realizing his love for utilizing his hands and analytical thinking, he pursued his certification in welding, automotive technology and hydraulic design at Lincoln Technical Institute.

Steven worked for Florig Equipment Company for 20 years before leaving to pursue career opportunities with life long friends at Triad Equipment Company, where he worked until his departure.   With his 30 plus years in the automotive industry experience, Steve proudly designed, built and patented over 2000 specialty vehicles. 

Steven was a devoted and loving father who enjoyed nothing more than spending time with his family doing everything from taking day trips to New Hope, family gatherings (daily, weekly, monthly or annually), for any and all destinations, summer trips to the New Jersey Shore, spending quality time with his children, playing with his grandchildren, mentoring his nieces and nephews, and watching his favorite team, the Philadelphia Eagles.

He was a very outgoing and charismatic person who loved to talk and never backed down from any challenges. You could always count on his reaction to be, to purse his lips, gently close his eyes, shake his head twice, look you in the eyes and say "Don't sweat the small stuff", crack a big smile and say "It's on".  No matter what the challenge.

He leaves to mourn, his father William Kent Sr.(Lillian) and his wife Acquaenetta.  6 children from previous unions, Shawnette Jones, Collegeville, PA;  Alesha Baker (Michael) Lithia, FL; Stephanie Jaynes (Allen) New Castle, DE; Steven L. Kent Jr., Cinkwae Lee and Cinole Lee (deceased), Norristown, PA; three  brothers, Bruce Brown (Estelle) Willow Grove, PA; Anthony Kent and William Kent Jr. Philadelphia, PA; one sister, Deborah Adams (Stanley),  Norristown, PA ; one step-brother, James Roberson and one step-sister, Maxine Roberson of Philadelphia, PA; 15 grandchildren, 2 great-grandchildren, a host of cousins, nieces, nephews, other family and friends.  Special acknowledgments to lifelong friends Tommy Johnson (TJ). Harry Allen, Vick Rivers, Carl (Bucky) Burgess and Larry Gordon.

Special Acknowledgment to his best friend and first wife of over thirty years Evelyn Kent who remained by his side always.
