Those left to cherish his memory are his wife, Millie Boyd Cochran; daughter, Kelli Cochran Spring (Clint);

his son, Ryan Kent Cochran (Emily); sister, Cathy Cochran Meldahl (Craig); one grandson, Hays Kent Cochran;

brothers-in-law, Jerrell Boyd (Linda), Jimmy Boyd (Dixie); and sisters-in-law, Rose Sones (Paul),

the loving family of Pleasant Grove Baptist Church and by his fellow pastors and families

who will forever remember his kindness and humble spirit.

    The last statement describes Kent perfectly..."his kindness and humble spirit". Kent, Millie, Beverly and I took Midway youth on many choir tours. Precious memories! Millie, we love you and your family, and we are lifting you up in our prayers.
