Lybren Brent Hart


Mr. Lybren Brent Hart, 53, of Onancock, better known as “Brent,” entered into the presence and glory of the Lord Jesus Christ on Saturday, Feb. 6, 2021.

Brent was loved by many and known for his quiet demeanor, integrity, honesty, and hard work. Born and raised on the Eastern Shore of Virginia, he owned and operated his own landscaping and estate-care business. His line of work was a blessing, as he found closeness to God working in nature.

They teamed to accomplish numerous building and business projects, which he continued to manage and maintain. Brent also provided encouragement and support to JoLynn as a ministry partner for many years.

Brent is also survived by his mother, Brenda Drummond Peffer (Dave); sisters-in-law, Betty Bralley (Richard) and Angie Ainsworth; and many nieces and nephews, as well as their spouses and children.

He was predeceased by his father, Lybren Brooks Hart Jr.; and his brothers, Kenny and Keith Ainsworth.
