Brenton N. Farmer Memorial Fund

This Memorial Fund has been set up in loving memory of our son and brother, Brent. All funds will go to support the Contra Costa chapter of the National Alliance for Mental Illness (NAMI).

Brent was devoted to animals and enjoyed close companionship from the family dog, Beau. He loved nature and was an avid fisherman. He reveled in besting his family members on the tennis court. He liked hanging out with the guys and listening to music.

Sadly, for the last 19 years, Brent struggled with a serious mental illness. When he was first diagnosed with schizoaffective disorder, we were overwhelmed by the magnitude of the situation. NAMI was a life-saving resource to our entire family. NAMI offered family-to-family peer counseling, legal and medical guidance, and invaluable emotional support through an exceedingly difficult journey. Brent’s father, Al, was the President of the Contra Costa chapter for many years and continues to serve as a Board member. We are deeply indebted to the NAMI community and will continue to be involved going forward.

We thank you for your donation. Any amount will make a difference for NAMI and for people, like Brent, who suffer from mental illness along with their families.

With gratitude, Donate here

I've known you guys for many years. I cut all of your hair. You are very nice. And your sister was fun to visit with as well. Brent God bless you. I had no idea you were in town. You could have come down to visit me. I would have loved that. I will see you again one day. My heart is heavy today. Take care Dad Mom and Siblings

There are no words we could say that could bring comfort…the anguish and grief you must be experiencing has to be excruciating.

We pray that God holds you both…and Brent…in His warm embrace and gives each of you the strength and endurance you’ll need to move through this, one day at a time - perhaps even one hour at a time.

Know that God is at your side…we are all at your side in person or in spirit from afar, weeping with you.

In Christ's love,

Hilde & Terry Clark
