Since high school (Calais, Maine) he was known to be tinkering with cars which led him cross-country after studying at the University of Maine, Fort Kent, working as a truck driver, heavy equipment operator and mechanic.
Brent was quiet and tranquil but also very quick witted. He had a big heart, helping many folks with their vehicles and whatever needed. His mechanic and engineering skills will be greatly missed.
