William “Kent” Stettler

May 25, 1960 - January 18, 2015

William “Kent” Stettler, passed away on Sunday, January 18.   His loving, generous heart was unable to continue.  He is now having a joyous reunion with his Heavenly Father; his father, William; his mother, Betty Jean; and all the many wonderful friends and relatives, who have passed on before him.

Kent was born May 25, 1960 in Ogden, Utah.  After graduating from Ogden High School, he served an unforgettable two-year LDS mission to Johannesburg, South Africa.  He then received his business management degree from Weber State University and joined the family business as the owner of the Bolt and Nut Supply Company in West Haven, Utah.  There he was able to work side by side with his brothers Scott, Craig, and Jon along with his sister Kathy.

On September 2, 1982, Kent married his eternal sweetheart, Cindy, in the Jordan River Temple.  Moving to North Ogden, Utah, they raised their two incredible, platinum children, Kelsey (Kerr) and William Andrew. Kent was always happily involved with everything and anything.  He loved meeting people, making new friendships, and serving Heavenly Father with his many church callings.  He enjoyed tinkering on his beloved Ford Mustangs, being a ham radio technician, researching family history, and just being grandpa to his delightful grandson, Hatch.  There wasn’t anything he wouldn’t try doing, and there was very little that he could not repair.  He loved all his Disney family adventures and always being there for his children.

Kent was deeply loved by many extended family members and countless friends who were always there to listen to his stories and share laughs with him.  He also appreciated the many ward family members who blessed his life.

Funeral services will be held on Friday, January 23at 11 a.m. at the Ben Lomond Stake Center located at 3550 North, 650 East in North Ogden.  A viewing for family and friends will also be held from 6-8 p.m. on Thursday, January 22 at Leavitt’s Mortuary, 836 – 36th St. in Ogden. There will also be a viewing from 10:00 to10:45 a.m. prior to the funeral at the church.

I Worked with Kent at KMart foods (a while ago, when we were in High School) we had some great times then and I enjoyed going into the Nut & Bolt store where we often reminisced about wrecking his Dads truck etc., He always had a smile on his face and was a great friend. My thoughts and Prayers are with your family, may the Lord bless you and console you. Wayne Patterson

We wanted to send our condolences to your family. I don't have your address, but hope this will reach you. I am Albert Stettler's youngest daughter. I loved my Uncle Bill & Aunt Betty. I know, as the next generation, we don't have reunions to keep connected, which is unfortunate. Now we older cousins are getting older & not always healthy enough to travel. I am sorry we are not there today for Kent's service. Please know that our prayers are with your family in hoping you will find peace in all your memories. Love, Randy & Annette in Twin Falls, Idaho

Kent is a close friend. We did many fun things together in our high school years and the few years that followed. The thing I enjoyed the most was sharing our personal thoughts. We had a rare confidence for one another. I recall him talking with me about when he first met Cindy. He told me how impressed he was when he heard her bear her testimony in church. It was my privilege to see them sealed together in the temple for time and eternity. Even though our lives got busy with other priorities, I always held Kent in high regard. Kent has been a good example to me, and I have no doubt he is in paradise. It is now our task to follow his example so we can join him there. May the Spirit of the Lord comfort us all until we meet again. With love, Carl.

Dear Cindy and family, My heart is shattered hearing this news while I'm living overseas. I am so sorry for your loss and am sending my condolences to you all. Love, Brooke Broderick

Dear Cindy, Kelsey and Andy and extended family, We are so heartbroken at your loss, which is also the loss of everyone that knew and loved Kent. What a wonderfully happy and joyful man he was to be around. He radiated with a positive light. I want you to know that he was the best home teacher that we ever had. We hold him up as an example of what a good home teacher should be to our children. He showed that he cared and that he was there for us when we needed him, not out of duty but out of a sincere friendship. We always felt comfortable in the fact that we could call him when there was a blessing to be given. He was a good, decent and very well-respected man. It was an honor to have known him and better yet, to call him a friend. Thank you for the wonderful memories. Ron and Liz Chandler

We have had so many beautiful experiences with Kent. I worked with him on his computers for close to 20 years. I loved hearing his stories of South Africa and laughed with him often about his experiences in life. If I could be at the funeral I would but we are currently serving as missionaries in Whitley City Kentucky. We wish the Lord's blessings to be with all of his family at this sad time. At least you're able to rejoice in the fact that you will be together again.

We're sorry we're so far away at this time, but our hearts are with you. Thank you for an obituary that remembered Kent so warmly and beautifully. It touched our hearts and lifted our spirits, just as he did. -- Rick and Patti Stewart.
