On Monday night Benton County Sheriff’s Office lost a brother in Brent Iverson. As deeply as we mourn his death, there was one thing that fueled Brent. His family. Brent was an excellent deputy. He was a rock in hard times, stubborn as a mule and always courageous. Even more important than any service he provided the community or protection he provided his LE brothers and sisters, he was fiercely proud of his family.
Brent was young. He left behind three beautiful children and his equally courageous partner of seven years, Erin. They had just built their dream home and were finishing up projects prior to final inspection. He wanted to provide a home to build memories with Erin, the kids and his mother. Even when the night shifts were long Brent knew his priority and that was supporting and making a life his family could enjoy together.
No words could ever paint a true picture of this man. His laugh was contagious. His radio voice will never be duplicated. He hunted. He fished. He built a home. He decorated cakes for his children. He lost sleep caring for the people who needed him. He lost sleep caring for the people who let him down. He fought like a warrior and stood up for what he thought was right regardless of the consequences.
We are raising funds to be given directly to Brent’s family. Every donation is a showing of the love we can no longer give to Brent, but we can transfer to the people he loved the most.
