He attended Iowa Lakes Community College and Iowa Central Community College barely surviving two seasons of football. He then moved to California with friends to start a new work career driving for Gold Coast Tours and working on his radiology/ultra sound certification. He moved his family to Las Vegas where he worked at the VA as an ultra sound tech. During this time he started the nation’s first personal ultra sound business called Early Images where mothers to be could have pictures of their unborn children.
Kent is survived by his wife of thirty years, Diana (Westoby) Newell; daughters, Jenna (Lorenzo) Newell-Veloz, Megan (James) Curry; son, Matthew Newell; and granddaughter, Selena Newell-Veloz, all of Henderson, NV; brothers, Thomas (Lisa) Newell of San Clemente, CA, Brian (Anne) Newell of Fort Dodge; parents, Gary and Barbara Newell of Humboldt; several aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, and cousins.
Kent adored his family and was especially proud of his children. He loved the outdoors, fishing and hunting, and spending time at his mountain home in Utah. He was the reigning Brushy Creek family Bass Tournament Champion, a title he will own eternally.
