I remember the pork chop experience on the railroad track, I was part of the experience. I fell off the pony into their driveway when they lived on Elgin St. He had such a keen sense of humor. Brent and his brothers loved playing with the toy army men my brother had, when they came to our house, plus loved playing pinball machine, and shoot pool on my older brothers billiard table.

Brent Always had a Smile on his Face. We all had a good time growing up playing hockey and camping out down river years ago. God Bless you...

Every time I'm by rail road tracks I think back to my childhood growing up in Cherry Valley, running down the gravel alley to the Baxters house where we'd all meet up. Brent , Tim Hooker , Brad Baxter and a slew of others. We'd go through their back yard down a gully and up to the tracks ( game on ! ) we'd spend most of the day on those tracks and beyond. Those were glorious times and I will never forget. Rest in peace Brent and Gods speed.
