I am so sorry to learn of Brent’s passing. Although I never met him, his father taught my family the Gospel and baptized all of us more than 50 years ago, so I have no doubt Brent was a special man. May our Heavenly Father enfold you and bring you peace, and may you find comfort in your many memories of Brent. We are so blessed to know that we will be reunited with our loved ones in the next life. Much love.
I worked with Brett at Synchrony for the last three and a half years and he was such a delight to work with. He was always so willing to help, reach out and get back to any questions I had. I was so very saddened to hear about your loss and my prayers and thoughts are with you all at this time. Limore Sass Practice Development Manager with CareCredit. Big hug to you and your girls.
We are so sad to hear of Brent’s sudden passing. I had the privilege to serve with Brent in a BYU ward several years ago. He is an amazing man who exuded genuine kindness, gentleness, and unconditional love to everyone he met. He was a true disciple of our Savior. He will be missed by so many people that love and respect him. We are praying that you and your family will receive the blessings of comfort and peace now and into the future. We are sending much love to you.
I was so saddened to hear that Brent passed away. He was so kind, well respected, and such a pleasure to work with. May his soul be at peace with our Heavenly Father. I offer my deepest heartfelt condolences to his family. I pray you all have hope and peace during this time. Let memories of Brent bring you comfort. He will be missed.
I have had the pleasure and honor of working with Brent and found him to be a man full of the Holy Spirit and always willing to serve with willingness and Grace. Lord God, Bless his soul and keep him family protected in your warm embrace.
You were truly one of our favorites when in Larkspur. We are deeply saddened to hear of this.
I am so saddened to hear of Brent’s passing. I worked with Brent for many years at SYF/CareCredit he was a great peer and helped me with anything I needed! His smile was contagious! He will be very missed! My condolences to his family.
Brent was a pure joy the four years I had him in my English classes! May he find eternal peace as he rests in the loving arms of God! Peace be with the entire Lacey family.
I am a Synchrony employee within the CareCredit organization but I did not have the pleasure of meeting him in person. My interaction with him was through email when he launched a new terminal pilot program for our partners who relied on terminal usage for their transactions. When I asked him to resend information to one of my practices, he was on it right away. That brief interaction made enough of a positive impact on me to recognize his name when I received the news of his passing. While I’m happy to hear he knew the Lord, I’m saddened to learn he left behind his wife and daughters.
To the family, especially Allison and his daughters, my thoughts and prayers are with you as you endure this season of grief.

Linda – so sorry to hear about your untimely loss. A comment I heard on one of the Doctrine and Covenants discussions was that sometimes people die young because the Lord needs good missionaries on the other side. I’m sure this was the case but it still makes it hard on the Family. Words cannot express and cannot take away the loss and pain. I send my love.
My deepest sympathies to you Allison, your beautiful children and Brent’s parents and family. I have worked with Brent for 10 years and could share so many stories of his selflessness at work, professionalism and integrity. But I remember him beaming with pride as he told me about a hike he completed with his oldest child and how proud he was of her. He talked about how brave and strong she was. He loved every minute of watching her hike that difficult trail. He even said she was more brave than he was. That is what I will remember when I think of Brent. Many thoughts and prayers to you all.
I was fortunate to know Brent and graduate from high school with him. He was a great friend and tremendous example to me. Though it has been some time since I have been in touch, I know that Brent has made a positive impact on the world. He will be greatly missed, and my thoughts and prayers are with the Lacey family. I love you all and know that Heavenly Father is with you during this difficult time.
I work for Synchrony as well, and was lucky to know and work with Brent over the years. He was one of the kindest, most genuine people I’ve ever had the pleasure of working with. My heartfelt condolences go out to Brent’s family. He will be missed.

I am heartbroken for you and your girls to hear of Brent’s passing. I had the honor and privilege of working with Brent. He was such a joy, kind, compassionate, always willing to help.

Mrs. Allison Lacey, Isla and Norah-my prayers and heartfelt condolences go out out to you and your whole extended family!

I am praying for an ever-lasting comfort and peace to hold you all as you walk through these hours, days, weeks, and months to come.
