Kevin T Harris & Pippin cast, Utah
A photo of Kevin T Harris (center stage) in 'Lead Player' role and the rest of the cast in the fall 1978 University of Utah's Pioneer Memorial Theatre's mainstage production of 'Pippin'.
I met Kevin when we were both cast in a musical theater production at the Univ. of Utah's Pioneer Memorial Theatre mainstage in Spring 1978. He then became a close friend for many years.
I believe his middle initial "T" stands for Trent.

1936 ~ 2008
Heaven celebrated the homegoing of Evangelist Jean A. Broner on April 5, 2008 surrounded by the majestic mountains of Salt Lake City, Utah.Picture this: She ran, laughing, her big hearty laugh, into the light of Gods love, into the arms of her lord and savior Jesus Christ, and her dearest friend Mama. Ecstatic with joy to see her loved ones, rejoicing in knowing that she held on to God to the very end. Blessed with a life of service to others, nothing was more important to her than God and his people.
The sunshine of her life were her children and her Faith Temple Family. Her fun, creative nature fed her passion for recipes, good food and good times.
Jean was born in Indianapolis, Indiana on August 9, 1936 to Troy A. and Francis I. Holland. She attended Shortridge High School and Steven's Henager College. The span of her career included nursing as well as office manager and professional cook for YWCA and TLC Daycare in Salt Lake City, UT.
Her most cherished and gratifying work consisted of 45 years as an active member of the Faith Temple Pentecostal churches, Salt Lake City, UT and Indianapolis, IN. Where she began her mission under Dr. Rosemary Redmond Cosby and completed her journey under Bishop Robert C. Cosby.
She is survived by her daughter, Rhonda Watkins (Wesley Sr.) Salt Lake City, UT; brother, Paul T. Holland (Sharon) Indianapolis, IN; grandchildren, Ava Cabey-Norman, Victoria Bacon (Kevin Sr.), Heather Jefferson (Demario), Wesley Watkins Jr. Cousin, Kaye De Weese; six great-grandchildren, a host of cousins, nieces, nephews and friends. Her son Kevin T. Harris precedes her in death.

"sweeping through the city", those who wish to celebrate her life are invited to on Sat., April 12, 2008 at Faith Temple Pentecostal Church, 1510 S. Richards St. Salt Lake City, Utah. Viewing at 10 a.m.-12 p.m. Services will be held at 12 noon. Interment at Murray Cemetery following Homegoing celebration. ...more info
