Kwentin Jernigan

It is with very heavy hearts that we announce that Kwentin Hoyt Jernigan entered into eternal rest on March 26, 2020.

Kwentin was born on September 11, 2007, in Safford, Arizona, to parents Evan and Cecilia Jernigan. From the moment he joined this world he began spreading laughter and joy to all that came to know him. He was not one to enjoy being the center of attention, yet he was always one to be involved.

Kwentin loved sports and enjoyed his first year to be able to compete as a Duncan Wildkat. He will most be remembered for his big heart, half smile and sense of humor. His quick wit and creativity will long be remembered, whether it was stories of Jeffrey Jeff Jefferson, Pizza Burgers, or his many songs that he would create; if a laugh was needed or sometimes even if it wasn’t needed (or appropriate) Kwentin would easily provide that laugh.

Kwentin was preceded in death by: his great-grandparents and maternal grandmother.

He is survived by: his dad; mom; sister, Ella; paternal grandparents, Marcia and Richard Jernigan; maternal grandpa, John Berney; multiple aunts, uncles, cousins, close friends and his Wildkat family. At this time the family will conduct a private burial service at the Duncan Cemetery.

A Celebration of Kwentin's Life will be conducted Friday, March 26, 2021, at 10:00 a.m., at the Duncan Stake Center of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. The family wants to have an opportunity to celebrate Kwentin’s life with everyone that knew and loved him and their many supporters during this difficult time. The family asks that you consider a donation to the Duncan Athletics. Kwentin would want to make sure his teammates are taken care of.

I can never forget him because he gave me so much to remember. So he will stay in my heart where he has been since I met him in third grade.

I grew up in Omaha with CeCe. It was so nice to meet her family March of 2019 in Maricopa when they came to stay with us. We had so much fun playing games with Kwentin and Ella and reconnecting with CeCe. The kids were so well behaved and polite. My heart aches with your family. I love that we got to meet him and took some fun pictures. May God lift you up and know you have a beautiful angel above.
