I had the pleasure to work for and to get to know Brent while driving part-time on his advertising truck a few years back during that time we became friends and not just in the business sense either. He was a man of great Ideals and integrity a joy to be around, his spirit was full of love and faith that showed through when you were around him. Farewell my friend God speed and to your family my prayers and blessings are with you may God give you all peace during your loss
