Kent Moser

Heaven rejoiced on May 5, 2024, as our beloved Husband, Father, and Grandfather, Edward Kent Moser, returned to the loving arms of his Savior Jesus Christ. While surrounded by family, he passed peacefully from this life to the next, where he was joyfully greeted by his family and loved ones who were waiting for him there. 

Kent was born December 26, 1943, in Preston Idaho to Joseph LeGrand and LuLu Clayton Moser. He was the fifth of six children. He was raised in Whitney, Idaho on the family farm and attended Whitney Elementary and Preston High School where he excelled in sports (football, basketball, and track). 

Kent married his high school sweetheart, Kathleen Wright, on January 7, 1961, and they were sealed in the Logan Temple on May 26, 1962. Kent and Kathy recently celebrated 63 years together! 

In the fall of 1962 Kent and Kathy moved their small family to Fresno Ca, where he attended Fresno City College and earned a degree in HVAC. During their 13 years in Fresno, their family grew and so did his testimony and love for service. 

In 1975, the family returned to Kent’s childhood home in Whitney Idaho where he purchased his fathers farm and resumed operations. From that time on, he was a farmer in the summer and an HVAC contractor in the winter. He worked on many large buildings in the area including the Logan Temple, Logan Tabernacle, USU Fine Arts Building, Dee Event Center, and multiple schools and churches.  The last several years of his HVAC career were dedicated to the Westside High School remodeling existing buildings and constructing new ones. He made many lifelong friends while working at Westside High School. 

Kent and Kathy have eight children, four sons and four daughters. The family built great memories working together on the farm while they harvested and sorted potatoes, picked sweet corn, worked with the animals, milked cows, hauled hay, and irrigated the crops. Together the family worked hard and played hard. For fun Kent would frequently take his family camping, hunting, fishing, riding ATV’s in the mountains, and taking regular trips to Jackson Hole/Yellowstone and Disneyland. Kent and Kathy traveled many miles in support of every child and grandchild’s sporting events and activities. They hardly missed an event come rain or shine right up to the end. 

Kent was a faithful member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. He had a deep testimony of Jesus Christ and of his gospel. Kent served in many callings within the church including bishoprics, high councils, and youth and primary programs. He was always happiest serving with the youth in scouting and young men programs.  

Kent and Kathy’s most recent service was serving three missions at Kiritimati Island, the Philippine Islands, and a local service mission. Each of these missions were the highlight of his life and he loved the people whom he served, and they loved him. He was well known for his strong handshakes, friendly demeanor and “okie dokie” attitude. Kent loved to talk to anyone and made friends everywhere he went. His family often found themselves waiting for Kent to finish a conversation with an old friend only to find out that was the first time they had ever met. He always took a genuine interest in the wellbeing of others and emulated a Christ like love to everyone he met. 

Kent is survived by his spouse, Kathy; their children Robin Gurney (Reece), Todd (Lisa), Shawn (Yuri), Nichole Crawford, Kelli Swaner (Derrick), Tyson (Mandi), Jordan (Maria), and Frank Clark (son-in-law); his brothers, Monte, and Gale; and 32 grandchildren and 29 great grandchildren. He is preceded in death by his parents, his daughter Kim Clark; grandchildren Cameron Egbert, Keilani Crawford, and Jason Clark; his brother Dennis and sisters Joan Nielson, and Marlene Kingsford. 

The family would like to thank the many doctors, nurses, and other healthcare providers for all their tender loving care over the last 10 years. Thank you to those who have helped Kent and his family over the last few months (Dr. Knapp, Ma Ree Carter, Belle Hubbard, Vanessa Moser, Bob Moser, and others). Thank you to everyone that helped to remodel the house quickly and on short notice to allow Kent to spend his last few years in the comforts of his own home (you know who you are). Special thanks to the wrestling coach and team from Hurricane Utah who saved Kent’s life eight years ago. We are so thankful to have had him with us for this time.
