    I met Brent when I joined Interstate Securities in the 80’s. We worked together in the municipal bond department in Atlanta and enjoyed a successful working relationship all through the years. Brent was a kind soul and treated everyone he met with the utmost respect. His warm and friendly manner was felt by his clients, coworkers and many friends. He will be missed greatly. God Speed Brent. You will be remembered, and your legacy will live on.
