Kent Gerhard Nelson

1939-2023

Our beloved friend Kent Nelson, 83,  passed away on February 27, 2023 in Holladay Utah.

He was born on September 7, 1939 to Kate Ericka Neiss Nelson and Harry Clark Nelson in Salt Lake City, Utah.

Kent resided at the Utah State Development Center for most of his life where he forged many close friendships with his staff and roommates. He enjoyed horseback riding, ice cream, riding bikes, going on walks with staff, and especially loved being in the water. Kent loved relaxing in his recliner or on the porch on a cool summer evening. He had a special way of communicating with his staff and had a smile that lit up the room. 

He was preceded in death by his father Harry, his mother Kate, and his younger brother Terry. Kent is survived by his sister Karen Thiriot of Salt Lake City.
