Brent Elliott: A good friend to whom i didn't have a chance to say goodbye.  Brent was charismatic, talented, and athletic (and was an accomplished skier).  He was also more than adventuresome with a knack for finding or creating circumstances that created excitement, or, at times, a little danger, whether flipping off his roof into the snow, sneaking in the Hogle Zoo at night, or picking fights with people a lot bigger than he.   (he lived a little more on the edge than most).  He always seemed to be searching for something; excitement, the next adrenaline rush or...perhaps himself.  He was misunderstood by some, and was an enigma to others, but the complete Brent Elliott was a good man.  He was a good friend and lot of fun to be around.  May we meet again, friend, and may you find the peace you were seeking.

Your sidekick (sometimes reluctantly) in adventure
