He married the love of his life, Danie Denise Hester on July 11, 2002. They started each morning in prayer and daily devotions.

Brent was a gentle, generous man known to some as “Mr. Potato Head” since he brought a truck load of potatoes in once a year for the community. He believed that the Lord put him on this Earth to do good to everyone and anyone around him. Numerous good deeds went undetected in not only Springfield but around the world of things that was done in the name of the Lord by Brent. He enjoyed to traveling to the families Condo in Aruba, working on farm and visiting the house on the lake. You could find him in the fall at the Robertson County Tractor Pull and traveling with his friends to different pulls across Tennessee and Kentucky.

His life was full of love, laughter and happiness that was shared by his family. His whole world revolved around his wife, girls and his beautiful granddaughter Carlee. Anyone spending time with Brent and his crew could tell in a matter of moments that Carlee Jade had him wrapped tightly around her little finger. Brent and Danie had fun ballroom dancing not only socially but also in a few exposition shows featured on YouTube.

    Our hearts are sadden for all this wonderful family. We’ve known the Edwards family all the way back to Brent, Lisa and Paul’s Edward grandparents. They have a very special place in our hearts. I know he is having a great reunion in Heaven with his sweet Mom and Dad. But most of all he his thanking Jesus Christ for being his Savior. You will be in our prayers for the days and weeks to come. I know you will find comfort in God’s loving arms of grace. Love to you all,

    Another cousin gone too early. I remember Brent so well as the oldest of Jr. & Sue’s, those Edwards Reunions way back when. Though I hadn’t seen him in years, loved him & thought of him fondly.
