Brent Wayne Burleson

Brent Wayne Burleson, 62, passed away on February 3, 2021, at home with his family after a very brief battle with cancer. Brent was born on November 2, 1958, in Topeka, Kansas. He is survived by his daughters; Angel Urton (James), Adriane Stone (Jacob), Alicia Kolde; his mother Carolyn Burleson; 3 sisters Sondra Searcy (Kent), Cheryl Heverin (John), Lisa Ekstrom (Curt); 5 nieces Angie, Becky, Amanda, Hannah, Samantha; and 5 nephews, Obi, Joey, Danny, Matt, and Kaleb. Brent was a grandfather of 6 and was preceded in death by his father Emmett Burleson and his nephew Josh. Brent lived his life to the fullest! He served in the Navy, played guitar in his younger days, rode motocross, made the best wine, and ran triathlons. He was as wild as he was charming. He loved fast cars, loud motorcycles, and was always telling crazy stories with his friends and family. Brent's best friend was his Labrador Zephyr Mae. She was more than a companion to him; she was his everything. When Brent left this world to go home to his Savior there is no doubt that Zephie was there to lead him home. A celebration of Brent's life will be held at Bradley’s Corner Cafe on February 14th, 5pm. Memorial contributions can be made to Shawnee County Humane Society or St. Jude Children's Research Hospital.
