Dear Sonya, Collette, Jay, Craig. I am so sorry for your loss. I have so many memories from growing up across the street of Brent in the front yard working on his motorcycle or playing with the dog. Or he’d walk over to tell me I needed to release the parking brake before I could back out the driveway! He’s gone way too soon and I know he will be deeply missed. .

I am from Jennings and knew Brent for a very long time. We rode motorcycles together. I lived on first Street and he lived on Academy. I also knew Collette. So sorry for his loss and praying for the family.

Brent was my oldest brother . We had wonderful parents and a great loving childhood. He was a good hearted selfless man and loved his family and
Friends. He left us all with a world of great memories. I’m going to miss him so much . He had a great smile and laugh that I’ll never forget. I was the only girl of three brothers, Brent, Jay, and Craig. They took good care of me ! I will cherish his memory and miss him dearly!💙🙏
