Frank was born on July 26, 1966, in Letcher County, Kentucky, son of the late John and Rosetta Watkins Jent. He was a graduate of Flemings High School in Neon, Kentucky, then relocated to South Carolina where he worked at Piggly Wiggly, Weatherford Aluminum. Rental Uniform and NanYa Plastics. Frank was a member of Dean Baptist Church in Whitesburg, Kentucky and attended Unity Christian Fellowship Church in Timmonsville. Best way to describe Frank was selfless and always thinking of what others people needed or wanted and ready to jump in to help. He was a devoted family man with a big heart and generous spirit who loved taking care of people. He also liked to "entertain" and make people laugh with his "original" jokes. He always enjoyed a good sporting event with lots of yelling, especially the Kentucky Wildcats, Miami Dolphins and his ALL-IN Clemson Tigers. His hobbies included watching car and cooking shows and his almost everyday drives through the local car lots.

Jent, and son, Spencer Jent, of the home; sisters, Sondra (Paul) Rose of Neon, KY, Mary Ruth (Randy) Simmons of Pikeville, KY, Debbie Eastridge of Whitesburg, KY, and Joyce Sergent-Ward of Effingham, SC; brothers John (Michelle) Jent of Hartsville, SC, and Mark (Rebecca) Jent of Whitesburg, KY; father-in-law, William (Diane) Clemmons of Effingham, SC; sister-in-law Karen his soul sister (Mickey) Toney of Scranton and brother -in-law Boyd Clemmons of Coward, SC; and so many relatives, aunts, uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins and wonderful friends.
Frank was preceded in death by a sister, Noreen Jent-Combs; three brother-in-laws, James William Clemmons Jr., Jim "Curly" Eastridge, and Richard Sergent, a nephew, Travis Patrick Lewis; his mother-in-law, Katherine L. Clemmons and a very special cousin and friend, Brenda Lynch.
