Kent G. Ogden May, 24 1963 – Aug. 19, 2011

August 23, 2011

Mom and dad brought Kent home in May of 1963. 
Kent was a smiling and funny little kid who grew into a very funny and always smiling man. 
Kent loved people; he loved being around them and he loved being the center of attention...no matter what it took. Kent loved to laugh. Everything was a joke with Kent whether you thought it was funny or not just didn't matter to Kent, as long as he'd get a laugh out of it. 
Another of Kent's favorite activities was switching jobs. Kent worked for more companies and people than anyone else I've ever met.

BLACKFOOT — The question is, how many choruses of "I've been working on the railroad" have the men and women who make up the two tie gangs and one surface and lining gang presently working in Bingham County endured?
Between Pocatello and Idaho Falls, two Union Pacific tie gangs, number 62 and number 65, are working to replace ties on the railroad tracks. One Union Pacific surface and lining gang, number 82, works tampering the rails.
Forty-two people are in each tie gang; 30 people are in each surface and lining gang.
