Dec 13, 1952 -- Dec 28, 2019

  Brent A Harrison, 67, of Lenexa, KS, passed away Saturday Dec. 28, 2019 on his way back to Kansas City from his favorite home "The Lake of the Ozarks".

   Brent was born Dec. 13, 1952, in Kansas City, Kansas. He grew up in Kansas City, KS as a child and went to college at Kansas State University earning his bachelors degree in business administration. Brent went on to become a certified purchasing manager.  Brent married Patti Beckman Aug 10, 1974 and they lived in Olathe, KS until moving to Lenexa, KS in 1984. Brent found his favorite pastime in 1989 when he began going to the "Lake of the Ozarks" regularly with his best friend Jeff Allen who he now joins for endless lake adventures (We are not there to keep you two out of trouble, so be careful till we meet again boys).  

 

   The lake was his favorite place to be and where he could be found most often since his retirement. He has been the "Lake Dad" for his entire life to both Kimberly & Blake, but also to his favorite child, Kyle Douglas and all the "boys". Boys weekend was an annual event that often ended with stories that we all got to hear for years. 

 

Brent retired from Dairy Farmers of AmericaApril 1, 2019 and anyone who knew him was sure to have heard how great the chocolate milk was and how many gallons of milk  were used at the milk bar a day. Brent worked at Bendix, Marion, KPMG, H&R Block, and Dairy Farmers of America throughout his career. 

 

Brent is survived by his wife Patti Harrison, children Kimberly Harrison (Jon George), Blake Harrison, mother Myrtle Harrison, brothers Barry (Donna) Harrison, Brad (Judy) Harrison, grandchildren Angelina (Tyler) Hinnen, Maria Harrison, Brother and Sister in-laws Linda & Carl Newman, Monte Lynch and many nieces, nephews, and friends. 

 

Brent was preceded in death by his father Robert Harrison, grandparents Glenn & Bertha Harrison, and Elmer & Georganna Burchfield, and sister in-law Elaine Lynch. 

 

Brent is survived by close lifelong family friends Kyle & Alexis (Kaden & Karson) Douglas.

My deepest sympathy in this time of trial. Please find comfort in knowing that Brent was a very good man, one with honor, character and soul. I worked with Brent at Bendix and Marion and he was one of the best, always true to his convictions. I know Brent has his lifetime angel wings and is looking down on us, particularly his family and is keeping a protective eye on all. God Bless

I am so deeply saddened by Brent’s passing. He was such a great friend to not just my dad but to the rest of our family. Even after Jeff passed Brent made efforts to stay a part of my life, always reaching out to tell me happy birthday and to attend events like my wedding shower. I miss the days at the lake when we would all be together, hearing Jeff make obnoxious jokes and Brents infectious laugh that would follow. They were peas in a pod and I take solace knowing they can cut up together again in heaven. Patty, Kim, and Blake: My heart and prayers are with you all. I hope y’all can come together in this trying time, and please reach out to me if you ever need anything or just want to talk. I’m sorry I could not make it to the service but I send my love from Texas. We Allens know too well the pain of losing our father, the leader of the family. We will all dearly miss Brent, and will keep your family in our prayers always. With Love, Grant
