Respected Local Educator Mourned

October 5th, 2011 by Rich Jacobson

My heart was deeply saddened this past weekend to learn that longtime local educator/administrator Brent Anderson had passed away in his home late last week.

I first met Brent when he was Principal of Brownsville Elementary.  My wife Janice had been moved over from Clear Creek Elementary to teach 5th grade at Brownsville.

I liked Brent from the instant I met him. He was always friendly and had a contagious smile. He was genuinely interested and engaged when he talked to you. And he was extremely passionate in the support and encouragement of his staff.

I had the distinct pleasure of helping Brent buy his house in East Bremerton. It was truly one of most fun and enjoyable transactions I’ve ever had in my years as a real estate broker.

Brent was most recently serving as a counselor at Bremerton High School, a position that brought him great joy and personal satisfaction.

Brent’s passing is a tremendous loss to our schools, students, and to all of those whose lives he touched. His kind, generous, encouraging spirit will always be fondly remembered.
