Staff SGT Brent Barnett passed away and left this world for a better place on Wednesday, the 10th of October 2012. Brent is a beloved husband, a stepfather, a son, brother and cousin. Also an esteemed and beloved fellow soldier too many. Brent's boisterous deep laughter and amazing sense of humor will be missed by all that knew and loved him, he had a beautiful spirit. Brent was an independent and determined person. He left his hometown in California and joined the US Army at the young age of 18. Brent served two tours in Iraq and one in Afghanistan and was highly decorated in the six years he was in the army. Throughout his travels in the military he saw the world and touched many people's hearts. He used his short time on this earth to serve his country, to love and care for others and to put smiles on people's faces everyday. He cared for his friends like family and had an astoundingly open heart. He was social, witty, and easy to love and would quickly become the life of any party. He was a fun loving, easy-going person who loved to laugh. The light hearted energy he brought into this world will not be lost or forgotten but carried on through all of his friends and family and all those who were lucky enough to know him. He is survived by his wife Chelsea Ann Barnett Lamont; step daughters Venus Dias Johnson and Aaila Dias Johnson; his mother Lorelei Barnett; mother in law Tamerlane Johnson; brother Brian Barnett; brother-in-law Keith Johnson; sister-in --law Genevieve Gabbert; aunts Nicole Randolph and Jeannine Austin Fisher; uncles Don Randolph and Anthony Randolph; his military brothers Brandon Everett Luiz Torres and Blake Brown Erin Ngu, plus many, many other family members and friends, not mentioned but no less important.
