He taught his wife and daughters how to hunt, fish, operate heavy equipment, change a tire, dicker a deal, and to laugh.

Brent's work history included driving semis, construction (BZ Backhoe), working campaigns and selling Christmas trees around the family home for 16 years that he fresh cut with his beautiful bride. He was a great provider and protector of his 3 girls.

He loved to hunt big game and birds, fish off his boat, working on vehicles, fetching firewood and raising animals, always having dogs and horses.
