Brent was raised in Ansonia and was a 1993 graduate of St. Joseph’s High School, Trumbull and then earned his B.A. Degree from Fairfield University in English Literature. He worked as a real estate broker in the family business, Botti Realty, Inc. of Derby, for over 25 years, as well as working independently on property acquisitions, management and sales. Throughout his life, Brent appreciated the magic and wonder of all things Disney. Brent and Cindy were married in Walt Disney World on August 2, 2005. He shared this love with his family during frequent Disney vacations. He was a talented lacrosse player in high school and college and became a coach in his adult years.

He instilled his passion for lacrosse in his children and forever impacted the lives of the many youths he coached. A fan of music, he attended numerous concerts and festivals with his wife Cindy and friends. An avid skier, Brent skied the slopes of Vermont right up to his final days, introducing his children to the sport.
