Ed Tapia says
Sorry to hear the passing of Brent. We worked at Fire Station 20 he was on the “B” shift there and had his hands full with the characters there on his shift and trying to take care of his Captain II John Nuttmann. Then there was Rick Villata his engineer. What I fun ride on Engine 20. At one time Rick I believed cleaned up the first end map but it wasn’t the liking for Captain Hogue and he was so frustrated the he threw it out of the cab while responding. All in all we had fun and my condolences to the Hogue family.
Rick Erquiaga says
Brent was a Captain on the B at 20’s and I often worked SOD from the A shift. I remember during “line up” Captain Hogue would lighten things up with his “Word of the Day”. Brent was always Professional but encouraged everyone around him with a smile on his face and twinkle in his eye. My Condolences to Donna, Chris, Jennifer and the entire Hogue Family.
Rest Well In the Lord, Sir!
Steve Hofbauer says
I was saddened to learn of your passing. We had some good times at 93s. I was looking forward to another Pismo trip, lunch at Splash. I guess we will never know if you got Big Bob to ever wear a watch!
Condolences to the Hogue family.

The first time I met Brent we were rolling up to a fire on T 29. A slumlord parked his BMW in front of a hydrant while he was collecting rent checks. That was the only water supply for that fire. Brent was the pump Engineer at 26’s. He blew out the side windows of the car and ran the supply through the car, supplying the whole incident. I had to meet this guy. I ran into him a lot after that and am a big fan. The amazing thing is that this hard-core pump Engineer finished up as an EMS Captain. That’s like cats sleeping with dogs or Rick Villata as a Paramedic.
What a treat it was working with Brent. To the Hogue family, he was a big deal and sorry for your loss.

I worked with Brent at 14’s and around him when he was an Engineer at 26’s. We were relief as captains at 20’s. One night Engine 20 returned from a run and Brent went to open the front door and an opossum had decided to invade the alcove. It scared Brent and during his escape sprained his ankle. Rest in Peace

I was just off probation when I worked with Brent at FS 11. He was bigger than life. Rest in peace my friend 🙁
Mike McMaster says
Although I was never assigned to a fire station with Brent, our paths crossed numerous times over the years. He always had a great big smile on his face and greeted me warmly. On several occasions as we talked about different situations that I was experiencing, Brent would offer suggestions. After listening to me his standard response was: “Really,…well have you thought about ………. I remember many times saying: “you know Brent, that’s probably a good idea”. Brent would almost always respond by saying “well yeah!” It was always a pleasure for me to spend time talking to Brent. He was and is a true gentleman. The world has lost a little of its sparkle with Brent’s passing but I believe that I will see him again in a place called heaven thanks to our savior Jesus Christ. I look forward to that moment and hearing him say again “Hey Mike, have you thought about…..

When I had only a few years on the job, I got involved with the Firefighter’s Association. Brent was on the committee also. He was fun, but sometimes he would baffle me. Whenever we had to vote on something, like attending a function, hosting an event, or backing a politician, and it was a slam dunk positive vote, Brent would vote no. On another issue, if everybody voted against it, he would vote yes. I finally asked him why he always went against the almost unanimous vote. He said, “Well you see, if turns out to be a positive thing, I can say “we,” the Relief Association, were behind that. But, if it turns out to be negative thing, I can tell the Association, I told you so. So, I’m always right.” Now that’s thinking outside the box!
