Brent was born on Nov. 6, 1966, in Moline, the son of Thomas and Delores Versluys Laleman. He graduated from Orion High School in 1984. He was a well-known Quad-Cities car salesman at both Hiland Toyota and Lujack Lexus before he opened his very successful bar and grill in The District of Rock Island called "Lollies Irish Pub." He later sold his business and moved to Cape Coral, where he worked in sales for Solar Tek Systems.
Brent always lived life to the fullest. He loved the ocean, boating, hunting, fishing and spending time with his friends and family. He had a contagious smile, big heart and infectious personality. He devoted everything to not only his children, but to his friends. He loved his five children, Morgan, 18, Bronson, 18, Jayson, 16, Tayiah, 14, and Korbyn, 12, very much.
Survivors include his five beloved children; loving parents, Delores and Thomas; three dear siblings, Brenda (Don) Kabel, Bruce (Trina) Laleman and Kelly (Brian) Morrison, all of Orion; special nieces and nephews, Kyle Conway, Kaitlyn Conway, Michael Morrison, Branden Morrison, Emiliah Morrison, Andrew Morrison, Gabriel Laleman, Mason Laleman, Erica (Dereck) Kaiser and Jennifer (Ryan) Flockhart.
