Kent Evans (10/17/49-01/6/11, the son of Ray and Charlotte Evans, died Thursday morning, January 6th 2011.
Kent was born in Grove City, Pennsylvania and moved to Orange County in 1953 at the age of four. He received a BS in Finance from Cal Poly Pomona and worked as VP of Finance for Brentwood Originals for over twenty years.
Kent was an amazing, loving and compassionate father, brother, co-worker and friend. Kent's number one priority and love in his life was his family. No sacrifice was too high for their benefit, a lesson that he passed on to his children, sister and nephews. Kent's "stubbornness", perseverance and ambition helped him to accomplish his dreams to always care for and support his loved ones.
Kent had friends from all walks of life and ages. He was known affectionately as "The Governor of the block" and thoroughly enjoyed the company of a good friend. Harley rides to Cook's Corner with a quick stop by Billy's at the Beach on the way home was a great place to find Kent on a Sunday.
Sturgis with his children this past August will be a cherished memory. Kent also enjoyed taking his Porsche's on a drive up through the canyon or to swap meets looking for parts. Walks on the beach or a good glass of Chardonnay were favorite pastimes of Kent's.
Kent will be greeted in heaven by his father and mother Ray and Charlotte Evans. He will be missed most by his daughter, Chelsea Evans; son, Cole Evans; daughter-in-law, Lauren Evans; sister, Gayle Conger; brother-in-law, Tim Conger; nephews, Tyson and Todd Conger.
A Memorial service will be held at First Christian Church in Huntington Beach, Friday the 14th of January at 11:30am. In lieu of flowers please make donations in honor of Kent to the American Heart Association .
