Tribute: Kenton K. Brown, 1958-2012
Sente Mortgage Founding Partner and Vice President
On February 23, 2012 we lost the soul of our organization to a courageous fight with cancer. Kenton was one of the founding members and Vice President of Sente Mortgage. He was also President of the Austin Mortgage Bankers Association.
Kenton served as Sente’s spiritual leader. His influence will always resonate through our offices as we consider, “What would Kenton do?” His industry savvy and compassion for his clients are continual motivation for us to do better. Everyone who had the pleasure of knowing Kenton will forever find inspiration in his talent, humor, energy, curiosity, intelligence and drive to excel in all his endeavors.
Kenton grew up in Spring Branch, a suburb of Houston, during the 60s and early 70s. Kent graduated from Spring Woods High School and went to Texas A&M, where he was a member in the Corps of Cadets in Company M2 “The Spider-M Outfit.” Kenton graduated with a degree in Industrial Distribution and worked briefly in the oil industry for FMC Corporation before deciding to follow in his father’s footsteps into the mortgage banking business.
Kenton was committed to making a difference in the world and in the lives of everyone he encountered in both his business and personal life. Kenton had a love for the arts and was an avid Tango dancer as well as an accomplished photographer, sculptor, and painter; he drew out the artist in us all.
