Kent Amos Barnett, the son of Amos and Helen (McAdon) Barnett, was born on June 18, 1937, near a farm in Little Sioux, IA. He grew up around the Little Sioux area until the age of 10 when the family relocated to a farm outside of Soldier, IA. Kent graduated from Ute High School with the class of 1955.

After high school, Kent worked as a commercial painter in Omaha, NE. In 1957, Kent married Francis Pithan, and relocated outside of Ute, IA, where the couple commenced in farming. Kent and Francis were blessed with six children: Randall, Richard, Ronald, Roger, Tana, and Rodney. The couple would later part ways.

In 1988, Kent married Zeta Richards and the couple retired to the family farm near Soldier, IA. Kent loved tinkering on tractors, remodeling homes, and spending as much time outdoors as possible.
