    A more genuine man you will never meet. Brent was a man who always had a smile on his face, took the time to shake your hand and give you more than just the time of day.

A kind and giving soul who will be sorely missed by everyone he touched in life. Rest In Peace my friend.

    Our deepest sympathy to each of you in Brent’s passing. I had the pleasure of being introduced to Brent by Cory Feaver way back in the late 80’s. I have very fond memories of the many good times we shared all together whether golfing, snowmobiling or at the cottage. Though time took us in different directions Brent was always a joy to bump into and you could always pick up right were you had left off. Brent was a good soul and a very much a gentleman too. My life was that much better for having shared time with him. He certainly was the type of man we all should strive to be. So sorry for your loss.
