Kent Allen Mowrer was born Aug. 26, 1968, in Perry, Iowa, to Harold Allen and Carol Jean (Hume) Mowrer.

He graduated from Perry High School and Iowa State University.

Kent was united in marriage to Christine Louise Emery at the Perry Bible Church Feb. 24, 1996.

Kent grew up on the farm, and his heart was always in agriculture. All his jobs were involved in agriculture, but he believed he was making the most impact working as the senior field coordinator for the Coalition to Support Iowa’s Farmers.

He was a member of the St. Paul’s United Church of Christ in Madrid.

Kent enjoyed working with his small club lamb flock and helping his daughters show their lambs and goats.

He was always faithful in attending his daughters’ concerts and dance recitals. He was proud to watch his daughters grow up and was happy they took an interest in agriculture.

In death he rejoins his father, Harold; and a niece, Megan Mowrer.

Left to cherish Kent’s memory are his wife, Chris of Madrid; daughters, Josie Mowrer of Madrid and Maddie Mowrer of Madrid; mother, Carol Mowrer of Perry; siblings, Thomas (Melanie) Mowrer of Ogden, Andrew Mowrer of Indian Springs, Nevada, and Nancy Lee Robinson of Venice, Florida.
