He had a long and successful career as a teacher and coach that began at Sacred Heart High School in Indianapolis, Central Catholic High School in Fort Wayne, Clinton and South Vermillion in Clinton, and retiring from Sarah Scott Middle School in Terre Haute, in 2005. In 2010, Brent was honored by being inducted into the Indiana High School Football Coach Hall of Fame. He was a passionate supporter of Indiana State University Athletics and took great pride in watching his grandchildren play sports ranging from youth events all the way up to college football. In his spare time Brent loved working alongside his wife Judy supporting her in her political career, especially during her term as the first female mayor of Terre Haute; he also enjoyed working outdoors in the yard of their Terre Haute home.

Brent is survived by his beloved wife, Judy Mars Anderson; two daughters, Debbie Anderson Sullivan and her husband Jay Sullivan and Jenny Anderson Bean and her husband Brian Bean, both residing in Noblesville; two sons, Matt Anderson and his wife Michelle and Luke Anderson and his wife Brenda, both residing in Terre Haute;  one brother, Joe Anderson and his wife Gloria of Terre Haute; and a twin sister, Eleanor Robling also of Terre Haute. Brent had nine grandchildren, Conner, Keegan, Cody and Anna Sullivan, Caleb and Cooper Bean, Trevor Anderson, John Henry Anderson, and Noah Rollins; nieces and nephews, Joe Anderson Jr., Mark Anderson, Lisa Anderson, Matt Robling, Jane McCain, Julie Potee, and Vicki Sordean. He was preceded in death by one sister, Lucille Coffman.
