September 18, 1951 - January 7, 2021
Kent Rex Grange passed away peacefully on January 7, 2021. Kent was born in Provo, Utah on September 18, 1951 to Dorothy Skinner Grange and Lenis Gordon Grange. He was the second youngest of 3 sisters and 1 brother. He graduated from Orem High school and began working as a mechanic for the Utah Department of Transportation (UDOT). He retired from UDOT as a shop foreman in December 2003. He worked at Grease Monkey for ten years after retirement. Kent spent his early years doing farm chores, playing baseball, shooting guns, and riding his motorcycle. He married Lanette Davis on May 10, 1974 after successfully wooing her with his sideburns and new tires on her Chevelle. Kent and Lanette made their first home in Orem, Utah where they raised two daughters, Natalie and Angela. Kent designed and built their home and fixed anything with an engine. He taught his daughters the different between a philips and a flat head early in life. Kent was an avid sportsman, taught hunters education and gun safety classes, and ran the Holiday handgun and Hobble Creek IHMSA shooting ranges for over ten years. He loved the outdoors and camping and took his family on many adventures hauling wood, shooting, and visiting Yellowstone. Kent was a kind and generous person. He helped anyone needing something fixed or built. Kent was a quiet man, but always had a little mischievous twinkle in his eye. His sarcasm and one-liners were most recently appreciated by many hospital staff. Kent demonstrated dignity and grace over the past 6 years fighting liver cancer, complications from his liver transplant, renal failure, and skin cancer. Kent’s family expresses our deepest gratitude to the donor and family of Kent’s donor liver for the additional 3 ½ years we had with Kent. The Grange’s express heartfelt thanks to the Liver Transplant, Interventional Radiology, Nephrology, SICU, SSTU, Infectious Disease, and the many PT and OT staff at the U of U Hospital, the Oncology team and ICU staff at the Huntsman Cancer Hospital and to the Provo Dialysis team. Thank you for helping Kent through his many medical trials with dignity and respect. Kent is survived by his wife Lanette and daughters Natalie and Angela Grange who will miss him terribly but are grateful he is free from medical devices and pain. Funeral services will be held at 12:00 noon, Friday, Jan. 15, 2021 at the Lindon 19th Ward, 731 East Center Street, Lindon, Utah. Friends may visit with the family on Thursday, Jan. 14, from 6-8:00 p.m. at the Berg Mortuary of Orem, 500 North State Street. Masks are required and social distancing will be practiced.
