A private family service will be held at a later date.
Boulger Funeral Home, Fargo.
Kent R. Berlin, age 52, Fargo, ND, entered his Heavenly home on Saturday, December 27, 2014, surrounded by his loving family. Kent was born March 27, 1962, in Fargo, ND, to Keith and Marlyce (Strand) Berlin. He grew up in Moorhead, MN, and attended Moorhead Senior High School.
Kent thoroughly enjoyed his work years doing drywall and sheetrock for Miller and Sons Drywall, Inc., and Bob Nefsger, Fargo, ND. Kent was a brilliant, witty man with a heart-of-gold and big smile. He loved outdoors, bike riding and fishing with his children, cooking, reading, computer research, and most of all just being with his loving family and friends. Known for his abundant love, generosity, sense of humor, strength, and kindness, he will be loved forever and greatly missed by family and friends.
Kent is survived by his children, daughter Macey (Tom) Alden, Sheridan, WY, and sons Kyle and Tanner Belgarde, Fargo, ND; grandchildren, Andrew, Jazlyn, Ashlyn, Matilyn, and Dylyn Alden, Sheridan, WY; father, Keith (Jeannine) Berlin, Valley City, ND; siblings, LaVonna (Duffy) Powell, Gary Berlin, Cheryl (Brad) Evenson, Michael Berlin, Kevin (Rochelle) Berlin, and David Berlin, Fargo, ND; and several nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his mother, Marlyce (Strand) Berlin, and his brother, Douglas Berlin.
In 1993, Kent became quadriplegic due to a traumatic fall. Since that time, he’s had a strong desire to find a cure and has donated his body to UND School of Medicine and Health Sciences, Grand Forks, ND, for research.
Per Kent’s request, there will be no service. A private family “Celebration of Kent’s Life” will be held. If desired, please make a donation to UND School of Medicine and Health Sciences, 501 N. Columbia Road, Stop 9037, Grand Forks, ND 58202-9037, or send memorials to his son, Tanner Belgarde, 1910 54th Ave. S., Fargo, ND 58104, or other charities or family members of your choice.
