Brent and I would talk for hours on Facebook, and for a few years a day didn’t go by where we didn’t communicate. We talked about everything from work, family, music and even our fears and insecurities. It was this dialogue which helped me become the man I am today.

At our wedding in June of 2017, Brent travelled hours to come make a speech. Recited from memory, Brent flawlessly executed his speech with such kind words that I began to think he was talking about someone other than me. It’s this type of energy that Brent brought to the world which helped me gain confidence in myself.

I can only imagine that Brent is in heaven hitting up 2Pac and Biggie for a feature, or perhaps even XXXTentacion or Lil Peep since he was always up to date with current music. One thing for sure is that he isn’t stopping the hustle because he never did.

I may have lost a friend but I’ve gained an angel. You will always be there with me Brent, every step of the way.

RIP Brother <3

Jay, Barb & Jason;
We are so sorry to hear that Brent has passed. He was a wonderful young boy who grew into a wonderful young man. We remember many fun weekends together as the College Crew made some great memories with our families. Our visits to your Cottage were filled with Brent enlightening us with his amazing knowledge of his sports stats, seeing his passion for his music and many laughs. Our family was very excited to buy and listen to Brents CD when he made it. It was heartwarming to listen to his unique voice and his talent.
Please know that our thoughts and hugs are with you all during this difficult time.
You will be missed B-Flix.

My heart breaks knowing how sad you must be to have to say goodbye to Brent. Brent was a one of a kind person and I will cherish every memory I have of him. Oh, the things he had me do! Bologna faces, March madness, foot massages, poker games, waiting room antics, PlayStation, shopping, train rides! The list is endless. Everyday we spent together was filled with fun and nonsense. Brent, it was my honour. May you be centre ice, smiling as you hear me yell, 'skate ya fat lards'!

I had the great pleasure of knowing Brent during his years as a student at SCS, where I work. We crossed paths many times, chatted often, and one year for Halloween, I was Batman to his Robin (I believe there's a picture of us in the yearbook). Last year, I was part of the committee that recruited Brent to star in one of the Board's pro-diversity and acceptance-based videos, which was incredibly well-received and shown in numerous schools at both elementary and secondary levels (indeed, Brent will live on through that video, which will continue to be used in teacher-training and to foster and promote inclusion among our youngest thru teenage students for years to come). Please accept my condolences on his loss. Here at SCS, we are remembering and celebrating Brent's lasting impact on our hearts and minds. He will not be forgotten. ~Mr. Dale

I remember the first day Brent began his education at Boston Public School with Sandy McDonald as his teacher. Next he moved on to Grade one when I had the privilege of teaching him along with his EA Sherry Haviland. Brent was a unique force. He was brave and strong beyond all measure. I know how much you loved him. It should in his every day of life. May he RIP.
