Robert Kent Obituary

Robert Arthur Kent was born on May 12, 1952, in Tulsa, Oklahoma to Ned Arthur and Margaret Ann (Judy) Kent, and spent the majority of his childhood in the Oklahoma City area. He passed away unexpectedly at his home in Duncan on Thursday, March 7, 2024, at the age of 71.

No services are planned at this time in accordance with Robert's wishes. Arrangements have been entrusted to Whitt Funeral Home/Oakcrest Cremation Center.

Robert attended Oklahoma State University, where he earned a Bachelor of Science degree in chemical engineering, and the University of Oklahoma, where he earned his juris doctorate. Much of his over 40-year career as a patent attorney was spent at Halliburton in Duncan, where he enjoyed getting to know and working with many excellent individuals. Prior to that, Robert worked for the Kerr-McGee Corporation in Oklahoma City, where he met his future wife, Sharon. He married Sharon Williams on June 20, 1981, in Cordell, Oklahoma, and together they raised their son, Eric, who proudly follows in his father's footsteps as a patent attorney. Robert was a hardworking and devoted husband and father who was loved by many. In his free time, Robert could often be found in his workshop working on one of countless projects for family or friends, many of whom were always seeking his woodworking talents. When not in his workshop, Robert could be found at the homes of various family members, lending aid as requested, or traveling, which he had hoped to do much more of in the coming years. But most of all, Robert enjoyed just spending time with his family, who lovingly knew him as Bob. Those close to him deeply mourn his passing and will fondly remember the times spent with him.

Preceded in death by his parents, Robert is survived by his wife of 42 years, Sharon; son, Robert Eric Kent of Frisco, Texas; and a sister, Judy Nemo.
