"Carver" was born October 10, 1954, to Gerald Wayne and Stella (Cockerham) Carver. He graduated from NESCO Community School in 1972. A life-long resident of Zearing, he worked locally as a contractor with his father at Carver Construction, carpenter with Rich Lepper Construction from 1988-1998 and independently as Brent Carver Construction. He enjoyed playing guitar for the band Sneaky Pete.
Many know Brent as an avid Hawkeye fan, guitarist, pet lover, good friend and a man of many words. We shall all miss his vivacious personality and overwhelming conversations.

Brent was preceded in death by brother Gregg Carver and parents Wayne and Stella.
