In Loving memory,

He was preceded in death by his parents, Douglas and Sandra, and his brother Mark.
As a father, Brent’s wisdom, kindness, and sense of humor shaped the lives of his children. A man of integrity and compassion, Brent’s warmth touched the hearts of all who knew him. He leaves behind a lifetime of cherished memories, sound advice and his one dance move.
