Louis Thomas Dent IIId, was born January 11, 1937 to Louis Thomas Dent Jr. and Eliza Jefferson Dent in Lusby, Calvert County, Maryland.  He attended and graduated from W. Sampson Brooks High School with honors with an interest in mathematics and chemistry. Later, he moved to Baltimore to live with his aunt and uncle, Rosetta and Wilbur Butler, to attend John Hopkins University where he studied chemistry.

He met the girl next door, Catherine Jones, the love of his life.  They were wed on September 8, 1962. And from this union a daughter, Tracey Dent, was born.

He worked for over 50 years at Cello Chemical Company/Sherwin-Williams as a chemist and plant manager.  After retiring, he spent time traveling and living a simple life. Louis enjoyed many sports, baseball and football being his passion, with the Baltimore Orioles and Ravens as his favorite teams.  Many years later he became ill and spent several years as a resident at Sunrise Assisted Living Facility in Columbia, Maryland.
