Scott A. Brent – October 31, 2017

Livonia:   Unexpectedly on October 31, 2017 at age 58 years.  Survived by his wife of 38 years Joan (Roberts) Brent of Livonia and children; Michael (Donna) Brent of Wayland and Jenna (Zachary) Beason of KS; grandchildren, Xaiden & Axel Brent and Jackson & Leah Beason; and his mother Carole Brent Williams of Livonia.  Also survived by his godson August, cousins, and many dear friends.

Scott was born on June 16, 1959 in Harrisburg, Pennsylvania and married his high school sweetheart, Joan Roberts Brent, on June 16, 1979.  Scott served his country in the US Air Force from 1979-1987.  He was a loving husband, father, grampy, son, and friend.  He always said if he could make someone smile it was a good day.  He loved the Lord and was a member at the United Methodist Church of Livonia.

“Life should not be a journey to the grave with the intention of arriving safely in a pretty and well preserved body, but rather to skid in broadside in a cloud of smoke, thoroughly used up, totally worn out, and loudly proclaiming “Wow! What a Ride!”  Quoted by Hunter S. Thompson.

Scott’s Memorial Service will be held on Friday, November 10, 2017 at 11am at the United Methodist Church of Livonia, 21 Summers Street, Livonia, NY 14487.  Interment will be held privately.  In lieu of flowers memorial contributions may be made in Scott’s memory to the United Methodist Church of Livonia at the address above.  To send a condolence or share a memory please visit:

  1. Dear Joanie and family,
    What a shock to hear this sad news. Scott was always a friendly, caring man. I remember our days together at Hill-Rom well. The heavens have received a very special angel. Much love and prayers to you all.

  2. One of my favorite memories with Mr. Brent was sitting in their living room listening to “Alice’s Restaurant,” laughing to this 20 minute song while petting their cats! Haha, Mr Brent always had a smile on his face and could always cheer you up!

    I can picture him now, smiling down from heaven, telling us “everything will be ok (kid). Do what you gotta do.”

    Mrs, Brent, Grandma Carole, Mike and Jenna, you were blessed to have such a an amazing husband, son and Dad! Love you always!!

  3. Joan and Carole,

    We are saddened by Scott’s passing. We have so much enjoyed getting to know you at church, seeing you (Joan) and Scott become involved in choir and in other ways, too. Scott always had a smile and a good word. We always enjoyed talking with him, hearing about his motorcycle, fishing with family, and whatever that week. We will miss him dearly. We are praying for the Lord’s comfort for you, your family, children, grandchildren, and all who were close to Scott.
    Our love,
    Joyce and Ron Blowers

  4. We were very sorry to hear a great guy in our church family has passed. Scott always had a smile and was friendly to all whom he encountered. Our prayers are with you all.

  5. God bless you. Still reeling from the news. What a truly wonderful cousin. I have you all in my thoughts. Prayers and love abound. Gina

  6. JOAN and Carole,
    Selfishly I wanted more time with this new friend God put in the same path for VBS this summer. Positively willing to try whatever the curriculum asked us to implement. He was so cute aiming to bring in his military experience only to find the attention spans did not always flow as easily as conceived. You know what though, he still found a way to make friends and bring up the rear when I pulled in a modification to keep the game or participation high.
    His smile and countless stories buoyed my spirit but his too. The world was a can do place for him. He loved adventure. May his connection bring us closer Brent family as life marches on. He would love nothing less; I have no doubts! Rip Scott.

  7. I wept today… a lot. I wept for the thought of my 2nd mom having to bury her son. I wept for the loss of my best friend. I wept for Joanie & the family. I wept because the world lost a beautiful, gentle man! I love you all!

  8. Mom & Joanie – I’ve lost my brother! We grew up together, side by side. I want you to know I’m grieving with both of you & your family. Scott always had a smile & a way to cheer someone up! So many wonderful memories & stories of my best friend growing up. Be strong & smile – Scott wouldn’t want it any other way! I love you both!

  9. My condolences to Joan and family. Scotty you will be greatly missed. A beautiful soul, I would have loved to spend more time with you, your presence always made me smile. May you be blessed on your new journey. ??????

  11. I am shocked and saddened to hear of Scott’s passing. Had a lot of fun growing up with Scott, especially after the flood.
    May he Rest In Peace and May God comfort his family.

  13. Dear Joan, Jenna & family,
