Brent Bohler, 55, of Beaumont, died Saturday, May 20, 2023.
Brent was full of life, love, joy, and laughter. He was liked by everyone that met him. He loved cooking and hosting get togethers for family and friends quite often. He was the kind of guy that you could count on if you needed anything. He would give you the shirt off his back if you needed it, even if you were a stranger. He loved his Indian motorcycle and riding with that sense of freedom. He loved to joke around and found the humor in everything. He loved eating boiled crawfish with a deep passion, and even won a crawfish eating contest a couple years ago. He loved and cared for his family and always spent time with each of them. Most of all, he loved his wife Lisa, his Darling Bride, with all of his heart and soul.
Brent was always willing to help with veteran fundraising events. He and Lisa attended “A Concert for Uncommon Valor” last year to help raise funds for a music video honoring Medal of Honor recipient, retired Army SSGT Don Jenkins. Brent was passionate about music and was making plans with a close friend to build a recording studio and provide sound for local events. Brent downplayed his time in the service, uncomfortable to have that kind of attention on him, but was always there to support other veterans in any way he possibly could. He understood the sacrifice made, and always wished he could do more. Being a part of different organizations that helped veterans was his way of continuing to serve.
Brent was always ready to give a positive word and a funny joke, usually in the same breath. He was ready to lighten the mood and make those around him feel safe and comfortable.
Music was a huge part of everything Brent did, whether it was riding or fishing, cooking or working around the house, the tunes were cranked.
Brent knew life was too short to wait around for something to happen, that’s why he was always on the move, always on the go.
He is survived by his wife, Lisa Bohler; children, James Bohler; and Kyle Bohler and his wife, Jennifer; Megan Bohler; grandchildren, Kayleigh, Barbie, Hadlee, Sandra Sasser and Joshua Sasser; mother, Nancy Reed; sister, Wendy Little and her husband, Scott Little, and their daughter, Paige; and brother, Clint Reed.
A gathering of Mr. Bohler’s family and friends will be from 5:00 p.m. until 8:00 p.m., Friday, June 2, 2023, at Broussard’s, 1605 North Major Drive, Beaumont. His cremation arrangements will be handled through Broussard’s Crematorium, Beaumont.
There will be a Celebration of Brent’s life beginning at 12:00 p.m., Saturday, June 3, 2023, at his residence, 5260 Margaret Lane, Beaumont. They will be firing up the pits and cranking up the jams to honor Brent!

my heart goes out to your family, Brent. I did not get a chance to meet them, but just knowing you, I know that they are wonderful people. I will always miss our crazy, hilarious conversations, but most of all I will miss my classmate, my friend, my Brent. Until we meet again, Rest in Peace.
