Brent was a 1965 graduate of Second Ward High school. He went on to become a first-class welder and was employed at Avondale Shipyards for 46 years. He was also one of the original members of the Killona Volunteer Fire Department. He was avid fisherman who could often be found talking smack about his beloved Dallas Cowboys. His favorite pastime of all was working in his garden. Many times, he was often seen, just standing there, literally watching his garden grow. He enjoyed sitting outside talking with family, friends, and neighbors. His greatest joy was spending time with his grandkids, driving them to and from school and making sure they got to practice.
