Brent Dwight Longtin was born April 28, 1959, in Cavalier, ND, to Dwight and Deloria (Verville) Longtin. He grew up in Walhalla, ND, where he attended school. He graduated from Walhalla High School in 1977. Brent attended UND and became one of the first men to receive a master’s degree from Texas Women’s University. On February 19, 2006, he met his partner Douglas Darsow in Minneapolis, MN. They moved around the country for years until they settled in Lake Las Vegas (Henderson), NV. 

Brent’s love was his family, spending time with them and having visitors during the holidays.  Brent found joy in music, with his CB radio handle being “Little Drummer Boy” and playing in a band to help pay his way through college.  After working hard he liked to travel.  He reached all 50 states and countless countries abroad.  With all the joyful activities, his true passion was helping others through improving mental health.  Supporting Alzheimer’s research, being on the board for the National Alliance on Mental Illness, and building care facilities across the country.

Brent is survived by partner Douglas Darsow, Lake Las Vegas, NV; his mother, Deloria Longtin, Walhalla, ND; and siblings: Brenda (Kevin) Lacher, Mandan, ND, and children Jennifer (Jon) Peterson, Kate Lynn Berg and Michael Berg; Mark (Amy) Longtin, Horace, ND, and children Brett, Brooke, and Alayna; Laurie, and children: Hailey (Ross) Aman, Taylor Longtin, Kaci Longtin; and many aunts, uncles, and cousins.

Preceding him in death was his father, Dwight Longtin and brother, Kevin Longtin.

Deloria, Brenda and Mark, I was in Brent's high school class. Such a big heart and kind person. One memory that I have of him is somehow knowing I didn't have a date to the senior prom, he found someone who also did not have a date. It was nice to be there and for him to arrange it. He left his mark on this world and we are better for it. Peace.
