Lifelong resident of Oakland

Born in Oakland to the late Ed and Jeanne Lindorfer, Brent was a kind, honest man who lived his life joyfully and with integrity. As often as possible he was found in or on the ocean diving, fishing or sailing. A general contractor for more than 35 years he still liked to swing a hammer and loved working with his son, Ben. 

He married his high school sweetheart, Martha, and was devoted to their children, Jessica (James), Ben and Emily and to his grandchildren Andrew and Adriana. He is loved by his siblings Heidi (Ward), Erika (Rick), Kurt, sister-in-law Mary, brother-in-law Mark and by many uncles, aunts, nieces, nephews, cousins, and friends.
