Dr. Brent Ohl, of Eldridge, died on August 27, 2016 at Trinity Hospital in Bettendorf, surrounded by family and friends. Brent died after a very courageous battle with an extremely aggressive and relentless cancer. Brent was gracious and thankful to the very end. He was 48.
Brent will be universally remembered for his sense of humor, kindness, generosity, hospitality, and pride in his cooking. His laughter and larger than life personality followed him wherever he went; whether it was watching his sons’ sports teams, cheering on his beloved Iowa Hawkeyes, or hosting his family and friends at tailgates, holiday, and birthday parties. He especially enjoyed letting his personality come through while practicing medicine with colleagues, fishing with his boys, brother, father and friends, and writing his annual Christmas letter highlighting the many adventures of the Ohl family. As someone who lived life to the fullest, Brent would like to be remembered not only for his accomplishments, but also for his zest for life that may have included, but is not limited to, activities such as illegal fireworks displays on the fourth of July, several near death experiences at sea, and unintentional damage and quick escape with an RV on a family vacation. The party’s not over, Brent, it’s just been moved to Heaven.
