Brent was able to do what he loved for a living and share his passion for hunting with hundreds of hunters that had the honor to share the blind with him.

He was a devoted father who loved his baby girl and never got tired of talking about her or her mother to anyone that would listen. All Brent wanted out of life was to be a father and God blessed him and Ashley with the most precious baby girl that is a perfect combination of the two of them.
