Our beloved son Brent Allen Foco passed away at his home in Greenville on November 20, 2022, at the age of 34. He had a very rare cancer that he battled since April of 2021.
Brent maintained his dignity, sense of humor, wittiness, and kindness up until his last days. His courage was and is inspiring to all who loved him. The courage he showed will help all of us through this heartbreaking loss.
Brent loved spending time with his friends and family. He had a love for playing video games and kayaking. During this past year he developed an interest in lego building, which turned into a sizable collection. One of his favorites is a 9000 piece Titanic ship.
We are so grateful for his girlfriend Jessica, who cared for him and never left his side. Without her and the wonderful hospice team Brent would not have been able to stay in his home as he wished.
Left to cherish Brent’s memories are his parents Brian and DeAnna (Fox) Foco, his brother Jeff Foco and Lily Sims, all of Ionia, best friends Kyle Pollock and James McGraw, Jessica Velchansky (the love of his life), and his long-time companion Ripley (a very mean cat), and numerous aunts, uncles and cousins.
Brent was preceded in death by his grandparents Merlin and Diana Fox, Don & Judy McEachern, and Fred and Jane Foco.
Brent will be cherished in our hearts forever.
