Brent was an avid outdoorsman from early on. As a child, he would spend his days outside no matter the weather; hiking, camping, and exploring with neighbors and friends. Brent was also a talented musician and spent his life playing his bass guitar. He took an early interest in cooking from his beloved mother who predeceased him and he soon developed a passion for cooking which led him to amazing positions at restaurants in the greater Boston area. He was both a Sous Chef and an Executive Chef in multiple restaurants where he made many close friends. His dedication and hard work in the “back of the house” was one of his proudest accomplishments. As a mentor and teacher to those he worked with, he enjoyed sharing his passion and skills to his craft.
Brent was well-loved by his high school and college classmates, his coworkers, his family, and his friends. He rarely missed sending birthday messages to friends and his kindness will always be remembered in his life helping others. To be a friend of Brent also meant you ate well! The family welcomes donations to the Greater Boston Food Bank in Brent’s name.
