Kyle Ervin Dent, 83 of Narrows went to be with his Lord that he longed to see July 10, 2022, surrounded by his loving family and friends. Kyle was born in Elgood, WV on January 2, 1939 to the late Frank James Dent and Jenny Wade Dent of Elgood.

Kyle was a longtime member of the Church of God of Prophecy and how he loved his Lord. A true man of God, preaching the word, and letting the world know about his Awesome God. Very few of his conversations went without speaking of the Lord and quoting scripture “Let everything that has breath praise the Lord’; he would shout from the rooftops. He went about playing his guitar and singing (perhaps “He Holds the Whole World in His Hands” or “Thank You Lord for Your Blessings on Me”) at churches, reunions and flea markets, drawing crowds as the Light of God would shine forth. Kyle was known as the flea market man that could sell a blind man a pair of glasses, and he truly could. What an inspiration he was; and what a story his life told. Kyle loved his family and wife, Loretta; his sweetheart from the age of 17. He loved his children; and all of his grandchildren, along with his daughter-in-law, and sons-in-law who he loved as his own. No one was exempt from hearing The Word of God. Today, scriptures are quoted and memorized by many from hearing them as he spoke each one. In addition to this time, Kyle could be seen expressing himself by his artwork; writing a lyric; a poem; or simply in journaling.

Kyle is preceded in death by his sisters, Susie Stclair and Edna Hazelwood; his brothers, Jimmy Lake, Ray, and Walter Dent; and his precious grandsons taken too soon and so cherished, DJ Spangler, and Cody Conley.

Left to cherish his memories to their hearts are his lifetime sweetheart, Laura Loretta Dent to whom he was married for 64 years; his son, Jeff (Pam) of Pembroke; his daughters, Debbie Pitzer (Joe) of Ballard; Kathy Waldron (Richard) of Wolf Creek; Tammy Anderson (Mike) of Narrows; Lisa Conley (Mike) of Kentucky; Misty Conley (Jeff) of Wolf Creek; his brothers Charles Dent (Lois) of Narrows, and Roy Dent (Barbara) of Roanoke; his grandchildren, Jason Waldron (Kylene), Justin Waldron (Kazdyn), Meagan Sparks (BJ), Kelly Dent, and Haley Conley; great-grandchildren, Michael and Kloie Waldron, Jayceleigh Waldron, Ryan and Katelyn Spangler, Greyson Dent, Logan and Josiah Sparks; and a great-great grandchild, Madelyn Waldron.
