Sad to lose someone so young.  My sincere condolences to those of you closest to Brent.  I hope you can find some peace in your memories of him.  Sending love and prayers.

Brent was a quiet and active in OSD sports. I happened to know him for a short time as our school's sports ambassador. He was approachable and well respected. His family missed him dearly...We will miss him physically, but his spirit will continue to inspire us.
May the good God rest his soul in Peace.
