He was the second of seven children and grew up in Hooper, Utah and attended Roy High School where he graduated in 1975. He was a devoted member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints and held many callings throughout his lifetime of service. He was very instrumental in his family genealogy work.

Together they had six children and a home filled with a spirit of love and fun.
Brent was a general contractor by trade and earned a reputation for his dedication and quality workmanship. He enjoyed woodworking in all its forms. He was extremely handy and always the first to help someone in need. He leaves a legacy of hard work and generosity behind.
Brent loved his family and looked forward to time spent with them. He enjoyed watching his kids and grandkids play sports, even coaching them when he was younger. Some of his favorite activities included camping, fishing, ATV riding, and being outdoors. He was a loving papa to 15 grandkids, with one on the way, who all loved and adored him.
