I'm sending sympathy to the family. I remember Brent from growing up with him at Pilot Rock as we were cousins. I followed him through his high school athletics and his 4-H events. He excelled in both.

So sorry that Brent suffered his last 20 yrs. I remember him from Pilot Rock when I was in first grade. He was a friend of my brother Joe way back then. He was a caring and accomplished fellow! My condolences to the family.
