Kent was born in Terre Haute, Indiana, the proud son of John G. and Marion Biel and graduated from Indiana University. Kent was a charter member of Cimarron Country Club, and loved tennis, golf, and traveling. He was a "car guy" and loved Corvettes and American muscle cars. He established the Kent Biel Buick, Pontiac, and GMC auto dealership in McAllen in 1977. Kent will always be remembered as "Mr. Low Overhead" and for his commercials featuring his granddaughter Ashlynn. He was a kind, honest, and loving man. The family extends a heartfelt "thank you" to his devoted caregivers - Maria Cox and Nina Garza - for their loyal and loving care of Kent. A special "thank you" is extended to the doctors and nursing staff at Doctors' Hospital at Renaissance and Amara Hospice for their first-class compassionate care.
