Brenton Patrick Moroney, Age :37
Apr 03,1983---Oct 10,2020

Brenton Patrick Moroney, 37, of Overland Park, was taken from his family by a tragic accident on October 10, 2020. Brent was born on Easter Sunday, April 3, 1983, to Kevin and Marcia Moroney. He was a devoted husband and father of three. Brent enjoyed spending time with family and friends.

Brent and Jessica have been together for over half of their lives. They were a team whose strong relationship helped build a solid and loving foundation for their family. For 21 years they still looked at each other as if it were the day they fell in love. Their relationship was always full of adventures; from taking Jessica riding on the back of his crotch rocket, driving cross country to purchase a new car, finding a last-minute concert to attend, or spending time at the lake. The unconditional love that they had for each other set an example for those surrounding them. He adored her, their children, and the life they built together. 

Brent was so excited to become a dad. He created a special bond with each of his kids. All three loved to help him on projects, run errands and “fix things”. He instilled a playful nature in them and made every day task fun. He always joked around with them and created silly stories to entertain them.

Brent graduated from Saint Thomas Aquinas High School. He was a member of Delta Upsilon Fraternity at Kansas State University where he was proud to be a Wildcat. He enjoyed going back for games and being a part of the Manhattan community. Brent was Vice President and Partner of Epoxy Coating Specialists. He played an integral role in developing the company in to what it is today. He accomplished a success that many dream of through his honesty with customers and by giving a thankless job purpose. He effortlessly related and connected to every employee and customer he interacted with.

Brent was everyone's best friend and brother they wish they had. His siblings thought of Brent as a mentor, father figure and sought his advice daily. He was a loving and devoted son; always a giving, committed, and compassionate first born; his moms “go-to”. When Brent was your friend, he was your friend for life. He loved gathering the ones he loved together. No matter the occasion big or small, he made sure each moment was celebrated. He left big shoes to fill but was unknowingly preparing everyone with the life skills to carry on.

Brent was preceded in death by his father Kevin Patrick Moroney and grandfather Donald Vincent Moroney. He is survived by his wife Jessica and their three children Eden Mae(6), Reese Irelynn(5), and Kevin Patrick(3). He is also survived by his mother Marcia Moroney (Chris Conway) of Leawood, and siblings Brittany (Brad) Werner of Denver, CO, Blakelund (Paige) Moroney of Overland Park, and Brogan (Madeline) Moroney of Kansas City, MO as well as his grandparents Jackie Moroney of Lenexa and James (Mary) Muehlberger of Hilton Head, SC. As well as a host of beloved aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, nephews, and friends.

The visitation will be held at Cure of Ars Catholic Church, 9401 Mission Rd, Leawood, KS 66206 on October 16, 2020, from 5:00-7:00 p.m. Mass of Christian Burial will be held on October 17, 2020 at 1:00 p.m. at Cure of Ars Catholic Church. Interment will be at the Resurrection Cemetery, Lenexa KS. Guests are encouraged to wear bright clothing to honor and celebrate Brents life.

In lieu of flowers, if you want to support what was most near and dear to Brent’s heart you can contribute to securing the comfort and future of his family.

It seems like yesterday I was sending condolences to grandpa Don, and then Uncle Kevin. Now Brent. What I can say with 100% honesty is at 37 Brent was every bit of an amazing man as the ones we lost before him. I’m so very thankful for the many memories I have of Brent. Not many have an amazing character at such an early age that follows them into adulthood. Brent did. A natural at getting and keeping all family together. A wonderful human being in every single aspect of the definition. My love and heart felt prayers go to Jessica, the kids, the siblings and everyone that knew him. I will forever hear his laugh in my head. -Elizabeth

Jessica and family, I am so sorry for your loss. Brent was an incredibly happy, generous, and lively guy! I will always remember his infectious smile as we passed in the halls at STA. Your family will be in my thoughts and prayers! Emily

I am so, so terribly saddened for Marcia and her family to learn of Brent's death. I was a teacher at Bishop Miege when Brent's parents were students there. Kevin was in my homeroom during his senior year, and I mostly remember that he enjoyed frequent naps-- not that I objected. Marcia was a few years younger and a student in my English class. What a tragedy to lose someone so young and vibrant. It is impossible to understand such a loss. I send my sincere condolences to his wife and children and entire family.

Jessica, I am so sorry for your loss. My thoughts and prayers are with the entire Moroney (and Rzeszut) family as you navigate another tragedy.

I still remember Brent as that quietly sweet boy sitting in my classroom, usually with a smile on his face. I also remember him as a hard worker and a wonderful older brother. He certainly made the world a happier place. I am so terribly sorry for his family and friends now bearing his loss. Rest in peace, dear young man. You are missed.

We were saddened to learn of the terrible accident that took the life of Brent. We remember Brent knocking on our door at a very young age asking to mow our lawn. He was about as tall as the handle of the mower but he had a belief in himself he could do it. He was part of the wonderful family that lived behind us in Wycliff. Brent was one of the kindest most thoughtful people on earth. Our heart goes out to all his family and friends. You are in our thoughts and prayers.

Jessica and Moroney Family, When I heard the news that Brent was tragically removed from our lives; it broke my heart. I am so sorry for your loss. I remember what a genuine, kind soul he was. His smile, kindness and love of life will what I remember the most about him. Brent and Jessica were students always in one of my first Christian Lifestyle classes at Saint Thomas Aquinas. At that time, my students worked with partners on a "marriage project". I had the distinct honor of putting the two together as partners. Who knew, they would go on to be married and have such a deep love for each other. One day Brent thanked me for bringing Jessica into his life. He said "I would have never asked her out, if I had not been assigned Jessica as my partner". It was the beginning of a beautiful relationship. My sympathy and prayers to all of you.

My thoughts and prayers are with Brent’s, wife, children, mother Marsha and his family/ friends at this sad time. I have fond memories of Brent and his family. I watched Brent growing up when I lived on Farley Lane in Overland Park. He used to cut my lawn and also for other neighbors as well. Lovely young man and will be missed so much. May he Rest In Peace.

Nobody should have to endure the loss and pain from losing a husband, father, brother, son, grandson and close friend. I’m deeply sorry for your loss. Although I only met Brent once at my office, he was delightful and endearing. My heart goes out to all of his family and dear friends. Mere words cannot describe what you must be dealing with at this time of grief and sorrow. May God give you comfort and consolation.

The Moroney's have been my neighbors for many many years. When my hi-usband and I moved to Wycliff in '92, Brent was almost 9 years old. And Brogan not born yet. Brent baby sat my boys when they were younger and mowed my lawn after my husband passed away! He was always kind, always considerate, always had a great smile and optimistic attitude when I saw him. My oldest son Keith was so happy to join the same fraternity at KState as Brent! What a role model for my sons he was! My heart is broken for the entire Moroney family and most epsecially his widow and children! I know Dale Schmidtberger greeted him in heaven upon arrival. God bless you all! Elaine Schmidtberger

Our deepest sympathy for the entire Moroney family. Brent was always the friendliest and most earnest person. He mowed our lawn when he was about 10 after we moved back to Wycliff in 1993. I think the mower was bigger than he was. It was such a pleasure to watch him grow up to be such a wonderful young man. Our thoughts and prayers are with your family.
