Memorial Service of Dr. Aubrey Dent
Former Board Chair
Sunday, December 14, 2014 at 3 p.m.
Aubrey O'Neal Dent Dr. Aubrey O'Neal Dent, Jr. MD, 80, passed away on October 29 in San Francisco, California. Born on May 7, 1934 to Aubrey O'Neal and Lillian Gertrude Dent of Roanoke, Virginia, he was the eldest of four children. He graduated from Lucy Addison High School and went on to Howard University, where he became a proud member of the Omega Psi Phi Fraternity and received a B.S. degree. In 1963, he married Carol Hayden Johnson at All Souls Unitarian Church in Washington, D.C. That same year, he joined the Civil Rights Movement and was honored to be a part of the March on Washington. Dr. Dent served as a Major in the US Army at Walter Reed Hospital, and his drive to become a physician led him to enroll in Howard Medical School in 1964. His skills were put to the test as he helped emergency room patients during the 1968 riots. After obtaining his Medical Degree in 1968, Dr. Dent relocated with his wife Carol and young daughter, Gina, to San Francisco, where he completed his residency in psychiatry at Mount Zion Hospital. He then established a private practice in General Psychiatry, which he maintained for twenty-six years. Dr. Dent was an active reservist for the U.S. Army through the 1980s and worked at the Presidio in San Francisco. He later assumed a position at the California Medical Facility in Vacaville, from which he retired in 2009. Until shortly before his death, Dr. Dent served as Associate Clinical Professor of Psychiatry at the School of Medicine, University of California, San Francisco. He was a past president of both the Golden Gate Medical Association and the John Hale Medical Society and was affiliated with Black Psychiatrists of America and the National Medical Association. As a member of Omega Psi Phi, as well as an active participant in the Beta Upsilon Boule of Sigma Pi Phi Fraternity, the oldest predominantly black fraternity in the nation, Dr. Dent frequently mentored young students and professionals through the years. He loved to attend Howard Homecoming each year to reunite with pledge brothers and friends and to see new students celebrating. Until his death, he enjoyed traveling and led an active social, political, and cultural life. Dr. Dent is survived by three daughters, Gina, Judith, and Lisa; sisters Phyllis and Joyce; and numerous cousins, nieces, and nephews. He was preceded in death by his parents and sister, Doris. Memorial services will be held in San Francisco on Sunday, December 14 at 3:00 at the Church for the Fellowship of All Peoples (2041 Larkin Street, between Broadway and Vallejo), where Dr. Dent was a member. There will be an additional family memorial service in May in Washington, D.C. In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations be made to the Sigma Pi Phi Beta Upsilon Boule, earmarked for the Scholarship Fund, P.O. Box 88204, San Francisco 94188.
