With heavy hearts we announce the passing of a beloved man, Kent Richins Waldron, on August 6, 2023. We were completely surprised a few weeks ago to learn that a tumor had formed in Kent’s brain and he was swiftly taken from us. Even with the profound sadness, family, friends, neighbors, and colleagues, were all blessed to gather, laugh, and cry together before this final chapter closed.
Kent was born June 10, 1961, in Ogden Utah. Much of his life was lived in Weber and Davis counties where he attended school and established his own home. Kent married Laura Langevin on October 12, 1991. Their marriage was later sealed in the Salt Lake temple. They are the proud parents of Gabby, Alec, and Madison along with Louisa who has been a loving part of the family. This loving family made their home in Farmington for more than 20 years where they are blessed by wonderful neighbors and a lifetime of experiences. Their home is always welcoming to anyone and a comfortable place to visit. Kent was a model of how to love one’s neighbor. And he gave faithful service in his several church assignments.
For many years, Kent was a safety manager to large construction companies with international operations. Kent’s work took him to job sites near and far. Being on the road helped Kent satisfy many of his curiosities. Later he clearly was most fulfilled by laboring in the kitchen and that enabled his creativity to flourish.
A celebration of life in Kent’s honor will take place at 11:00 am on Saturday, August 12, 2023, at the Farmington 5th Ward, Rock Chapel, located at 272 North Main, Farmington. You can greet family at the Rock Chapel at 10:00 am before the services, or Friday evening 6:00 – 8:00 pm at Russon Mortuary, 1941 N. Main, Farmington. Interment will be at Farmington City Cemetery.
Services will be streamed live on the Russon Mortuary & Crematory Facebook page and on this obituary page. The live stream will begin 10-15 minutes prior to the services and will be posted below.
