I remember one night Brent picked me up from my parents house to bring me to town, and we laughed for a good twenty minutes because he told me the story of how we first met n I had completely forgot that’s how I knew him. He was an amazing friend and person. Being around Brent was always fun! We all miss him so much. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family. Rest Easy my friend, until we meet again♥️

I remember when I met Brent. It was him picking me up to give me a ride to the hospital because I had liver failure and before we went, he wanted to make sure that his clothes were dry at the laundromat so we sat there but if it wasn't for Brent I wouldn't be here today. Thank you buddy I love you you will be missed greatly

We used to sit on the bus together every day in high school. I was upset and crying on the bus one day, but when Brent got on the bus and sat beside me he played the song “Don’t Worry Be Happy” while singing, dancing and just being silly to make me smile. He was a great friend to me.

I knew Brent both as a student while I worked as a substitute teacher and while working alongside him at Bendix. He was enjoyable to work with and kept a good attitude. I will miss him.

Brent... He was my best friend, for so many years now. I can still remember the first day I met him, next door in the garage with his brother, we were young and dumb. They took Dave’s corvette to town and had so much fun. Fun that I’m more than sure that they later regretted lol. We’ve had so many good times that I’ll never forget, he was the kindest goofiest, best friend I have ever had, and I will always hold him close to my heart, I hurt for his family. As I hold them just as close. Brent has done more for me and helped me through more hard times in my life than anyone. He was always there for me no matter what it was that I needed no matter how small... and I’m sorry that I wasn’t there as much as I could have been near the end. But I know that you are you there watching over me and my boys. I love you brother, and you will be missed always. Fly high my friend, we will meet again.

I remember being in class with gage in high school and he was a good guy to be around. Years later (this year) brent came to work at transwheel. I got to talking to him and he was just as good as a guy as gage. We talked about bikes and what not. I told him he needed to get back on two wheels and ride with us when he got done dealing with his legal stuff. Just wish we could of made that happen. Rest easy bud. Prayers for the family.

I met Brent years ago as a friend of my grandsons. He was so nice and soft spoken and very well mannered. Whenever he came with the boys to help with yard work or any chore this kid worked his behind off. I knew he battled drugs. I cheered when he seemed like he was on the right path and wept when he back slid. I loved this kid like he was one of my own grandsons. My deepest condolences to his family. He will be missed badly.

For starters I just wanna apology for y’all having to go through this.. yesterday when I found out I left work bawling. Brent was literally always a kind soul to me. I’m terribly sorry he lost his battle to addiction. He’ll never be forgotten 🖤
