Kent Joranlien

Kent Joranlien, (Poynette WI and Bellaire Beach FL) a beloved husband, brother, father, grandfather and patriarch of the Joranlien family, died unexpectedly and peacefully in his home on March 14, 2017. Kent was born on December 8th, 1937. He grew up in Waterman, IL, attended Northern Illinois University and eventually landed in Brodhead, WI. There he was a prominent shop teacher at Brodhead High School before beginning his long career at Knight Manufacturing, where he served as Senior Vice President and partner. He was an accomplished pilot, active member of the Experimental Aircraft Association (EAA) and was a regular contributor to the upkeep and improvement of the Brodhead airport. He retired in 1998, and has been enjoying golfing, reading, and sudoku. His favorite pastime, however, was spending time with his wife and family at his home on the Wisconsin River, by the beach in Florida and at any of his grandkids activities. He had an oversized, compassionate heart and will be missed by so many. Kent was preceded in death by his parents, Helmar and Willa Mae, his brother Wayne and his daughter Dawn. Kent is survived by his wife Sandra, a brother Paul, a sister Joan, his children, Ric (Teresa), Robin Miller (Allen) and Chad (Colleen) and his 6 grandchildren, Erik, Stephanie (Miller), Kirsten, Scott (Miller), Morgan, and Mackenzie. Kent will be remembered at a private ceremony at his home in Poynette, WI. A memorial fund has been established at EAA Chapter 431, P.O. Box 304 Brodhead, WI 53520, in C/O the Kent Joranlien Memorial Fund, All proceeds will be used for a memorial at the Brodhead Airport.
