Entombment: Greenwood Mausoleum. Sargent was born March 31, 1921, in Fort Worth. He will be remembered as larger than life, with a magnificent and engaging personality that lit up any room. He will be remembered equally as a true patriarch to his extensive family and for his transcendent and limitless love for his wife, children, grandchildren and great-grandchildren.

He was an excellent pilot with a multi-engine rating. He was also an avid golfer and loved to travel. Sarge read every Louis L'Amour book ever written. He was president of the TWC alumni association in 1971-72 and selected as Alumni of the Year in 1973. He enjoyed spending time at Hot Springs Village, Ark., with his family and grandchildren.
