Ricky Dent William Evans Dent (William Ira, Rawley Evans, Enoch Martin, John) was born in May 1874 in Indiana. He died on Jan 24 1909 in San Jose California. Saloon Keeper William married Fannie Mossman on Jul 19 1892 in San Jose California. Fannie was born in Aug 1873 in Kansas. They had the following children: i. Vernon Bruce Dent was born on Feb 16 1895 in San Jose California. He died on Nov 5 1963 in Hollywood California. The cause of death was Heart Attack. He was buried on Nov 8 1963 in Forest Lawn Memorial Park,Hollywood Hills California. Vernon Bruce Dent was born on February 16, 1895 in San Jose, California and educated there and in Oakland, California. Before entering motion pictures in 1919, he was an accomplished song writer. Familiar to many as the frustrated cop, businessman or landlord in countless Three Stooges shorts, Vernon Dent got his start in show business as a member of a singing troupe traveling in Southern California in the early 1920s. Silent comedian Hank Mann, a member of the famed Keystone Kops, was impressed by Dent's girth (250 pounds) and comic know-how, helped Vernon enter films in 1919. . Mann thought that Dent was good comic material, and gave him a supporting part in a series of two-reel comedies he was making called "Folly Comedies" for the independent Pacific Film Company in 1921-22. In the early '20s, Dent was good enough to be given his own series of comedy shorts. After this series was over, Dent freelanced and worked for such top comics as Larry Semon. He found real niche when he was hired by Mack Sennett, and spent most of the rest of the 1920s at that studio. For such a large man (5'9" and 250 pounds), Dent was surprisingly graceful, and Sennett was enthused to discover that Dent could do some outstanding physical comedy, able to do a pratfall with the best of them. Dent really came into his own in Sennett's Harry Langdon series, which rocketed Langdon to stardom and brought recognition to Dent also. When Langdon left Sennett, Dent stayed and supported such Sennett comics as Billy Bevan and Ralph Graves. Dent and Langdon were reunited in a series of shorts for Educational Pictures in the early '30s, and his value in the series was such that Langdon insisted Dent always receive second billing after him. When Langdon moved to Columbia Pictures in 1934, Dent followed, remaining a mainstay of the Columbia 2-reel stock company until 1953. Here he was featured with such comic luminaries as Andy Clyde, Buster Keaton, Hugh Herbert, Vera Vague, and especially the Three Stooges. Among Dent's dozens of talkie feature-film credits were W. C. Fields' Million Dollar Legs (1932) and You're Telling Me (1934); in one of his rare feature starring roles, Dent played a boisterous, wife- beating sailor in the 1932 "B" Dragnet Patrol. Vernon Dent was in more Three Stooges episodes than any other supporting character. He was in 56 films, not including any remakes. Vernon Dent had no real trademark role. He played just about every type of person possible, from a cop to a chef. There was no character Dent could not play. He played roles both supporting and opposing the stooges. He was in stooges episodes from 1936- 1954. Dent worked especially well with Shemp Howard of the Three Stooges, and the two remained lifelong friends. Shortly after retiring in the mid-'50s, Dent supplemented his acting income by running the concession stand at Westlake Park. Vernon Dent retired in the mid-1950s, due to total blindness brought about by diabetes; the ever-upbeat actor was so well-adjusted to his handicap that many of Dent's close friends were unaware that he was blind. Vernon Dent died on November 5, 1963 in Hollywood, California. Although there were rumors that Dent died because he was a Christian Scientist and refused to take insulin, in an interview several years later Vernon Dent's wife stated that he was not a Christian Scientist, and died from a sudden, massive heart attack. Vernon married Eunice Muncy in Aug 1938 in California. ii. Melville Evans Dent was born in Dec 1898 in San Jose California.
