Graveside services will be at the cemetery in Texline, TX at 10:30 a.m., Monday, August 24, 2020.
Brent was born February 8, 1964, in Lewiston, ID to Larry and Nelda Koller.
Following high school, Brent earned a Bachelor’s degree in Animal Science and Nutrition from Washington State. For twenty-five years, he worked Cactus Feeders, retiring as Director of FED Cattle Sales.
Brent was an avid Washington State Cougars fan, going so far as to convince his NFL loving wife to enjoy college football. He loved to drive and had really great times traveling to North Dakota and Washington to see family. Brent also loved a good debate. He could talk for hours and had a clever and brilliant mind. But most of all, Brent can be best described as a force of nature who was fiercely loyal to his “tribe.”
Brent’s favorite things revolved around growing up on the Snake River in Washington, riding horseback with his cowboys night shipping, or hanging out with family and friends in his yard while beating them at Song Quiz. It can be said that everything he did was on his own terms, and he gave 100% of himself.
He was preceded in death by his mom, Nelda Koller, a brother, Monty Koller, and stepson, Jonathan Baca.
Survivors include his wife, Elizabeth Koller; a son, Jared Koller; stepson, Robert Baca; stepdaughter, Suzanne Nelson and husband Lucas; granddaughters, Kaegan, Elizabeth, and Veronica; his father, Larry Koller and Carol Wildman; brothers, Jim Koller and wife Terri, and Brian Koller and wife Jana; several nephews and nieces; and many other loving family members.
