Kent Lorenzo Argyle quietly passed away at his home on January 19, 2016. Kent was born to Shavy and Lois Harper Argyle on November 24, 1942. He has a sister, Janet Peterson, and a brother, David Argyle. 

Kent was raised in Ogden where he attended Ogden area schools and Weber State. He worked at Hill Air Force base where he retired after 41 years of service. 

Kent was an active member of the 41 Duck Club, Wasatch Slopes Cutter Association and the American Quarter Horse Association. 

He loved hunting, camping, riding horses, cutter races, his home, family and friends. He owned and loved horses his entire life. He loved hunting with his boys and all of his friends. He was a great rodeo dad. He especially loved traveling with his kids to high school and college rodeos. He loved anything and everything to do with horses and his dog Bandit. 

He married Becky Rounds. She later passed away. He went on to married Sheri Clarey. They were later divorced. 

In 1972 he met and married Judy Dredge. She became the love of his life. He also became an instant father of 3 children, Sherie Sexton, Matt Johnston and Rachael Dredge Schweitzer.  Together they had one son Kent Argyle Jr. His children blessed him with eleven grandchildren and three great grandchildren. 

Kent’s health issues were extensive. However, he remained positive and in good spirits through all of it. His last days were spent laughing and telling stories with family and many friends. 

The family would like to thank Hospice of Utah for their kind and gentle care. The many Doctors at McKay Dee Hospital who worked hard to keep his life as normal as possible and his friends for always being there for him and his family.

I'm so sorry to hear that Kent has left us. He was such fun to grow up with in Grand View Acres! I can't recall a time when he wasn't thinking, talking about or drawing horses...and finally got one! I used to sit behind him in several classes and marvelled at how beautiful were the pictures he drew...I think he said they were Arabian. My one time ride in the grand entry at the Rodeo was enough horses for me...saddle sores are not fun! He will be greatly missed by all who knew and loved him. I heard how appreciative he was for the visits at the hospital and at home from classmates. I know Madeline took a bronze horse statue to him at home while he recovered from the amputation of the lower part of his leg. He must have suffered greatly in his last years, but I loved reading that he spent his last days telling stories and laughing with family and friends. I'm deeply saddened that I have missed seeing him for years and will miss the memorial services.

I have not seen Kent since the night of Becky's viewing 54 years ago.  He was / is a great friend. Hope to see some of our class at one of the gatherings in his honor.  Presumably they have horses in Heaven.

I attended Kent's viewing last night, January26, 2016,

and it was standing room only.   There were about

10 classmates there at the time I was there.    There

were so many photos of his life also.    I am just glad

many of us got to see Kent at Mc Kay Dee when we

did, and we presented him a booklet with many many

classmates signatures.    He will be missed by many, and

especially his family and the Horse world.    He always had

a fun way about him, and also one tough dude.

Dear Family,  I grew up in Grand View Acres with Kent and his beautiful sister Janet.  We had all kinds of adventures from tobagganing on Horses Hill to my first dance at Washington Jr High with him.  I was 5'6" and he was 5' and I remember rubbing the top of his crew-cut as I towered over him. There was quite a gang of us that hung together in school and play from Grandview Acres Kindergarten to Washington Jr High to Ogden High to  Weber College and the memories won't be forgotten. My love goes to his family. 

Sincerely, Dina Downs Smith
