Obituary for REV. HOWARD KENT, JR.

Rev. Howard Kent Jr, Ret., affectionately known to his siblings and cousins as “Chippy”, the son of the late Howard Kent Sr. and the late Hattie Sutton, was born March 20, 1929 in Appeal (Lusby), Maryland. After 20 years of illness, he finally moved into his heavenly mansion on September 8, 2014 at 8:00pm.

Howard attended Calvert County Public School. He’s been a long time member at St. Johns United Methodist Church in Lusby, Maryland for over 60 years, where he received Jesus Christ as his Lord and Savior. In 1951, Howard was joined in Holy Matrimony to the late Mary L. Johnson (Kent), and from this union God gifted them with two children, the late Howard H Kent III, and Mary A Kent (Cali) (Peaches). In 1951 Howard was officially inducted into the U.S Army to serve in the Korean War, and was Honorably Discharge from the U.S Army for his dutiful service. Shortly after, he was certified to preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ.

For nearly 35 years, Minister Howard was a model employee for the Military by serving as a civil servant for the Naval Air Systems Command, U.S. Naval Air Station, Patuxent River, Maryland. During this time, he was accepted and attended Wesley Theological Seminary, Washington DC, where he completed and received his degree in theology studies. At which time he accepted Senior Pastoral position appointed by The Eastern Baltimore Washington Conference
for Peter’s United Methodist Church and Coopers United Methodist Church in Dunkirk, Maryland.

For several years he served God in this capacity until he retired from The Eastern Baltimore Washington Conference for Peter’s United Methodist Church and Coopers United Methodist Church in Dunkirk, Maryland.
