IN LOVING MEMORY OF BRENT D. GERMAIN

BRENT DOUGLAS GERMAIN, BORN ON APRIL 7TH, 1957, IN NEWARK, NJ, PEACEFULLY

TRANSITIONED ON JANUARY 28, 2024. HE WAS A CHERISHED HUSBAND, DEVOTED FATHER,

BROTHER, UNCLE, NEPHEW, COUSIN, AND FRIEND- LEAVING BEHIND A LEGACY OF LOVE,

LAUGHTER, AND A PROFOUND CONNECTION WITH GOD.

BRENT GREW UP IN EAST ORANGE, NJ WHERE HE WAS A MEMBER OF MESSIAH BAPTIST

CHURCH. HE GRADUATED FROM EAST ORANGE HIGH SCHOOL. HE PURSUED HIS DEGREE AT

RUTGERS UNIVERSITY. BRENT EMBARKED ON A SUCCESSFUL ENGINEERING CAREER THAT

SPANNED DECADES. HIS COMMITMENT TO HIS WORK MIRRORED THE DEDICATION HE SHOWED

TO HIS FAMILY AND COMMUNITY.

BRENT SHARED 32 WONDERFUL YEARS OF MARRIAGE WITH HIS BELOVED WIFE, LORAINE.

TOGETHER, THEY BUILT A HOME FILLED WITH WARMTH, LAUGHTER AND LOVE. HIS SON, REV.

ANDRE COFFEE, ALONG WITH HIS GRANDDAUGHTERS, DESTINY, TRINITY AND AMBER, BROUGHT

IMMENSE JOY TO HIS LIFE. AS AN IDENTICAL TWIN, BRENT HAD A SPECIAL BOND WITH HIS

BROTHER BRIAN, ALWAYS REMINDING HIM THAT HE WAS THE ELDEST TWIN IN HIS WORDS, “I

AM THE OLDEST & OLD SCHOOL”. THEY MADE IT A PRIORITY TO COMMUNICATE REGULARLY-

REFLECTING ON THEIR LOVE OF SPORTS AND FAMILY.

BRENT'S FAITH WAS A GUIDING LIGHT. HE ACTIVELY CONTRIBUTED TO THE ANTIOCH BAPTIST

CHURCH IN SPRINGFIELD, NJ, AS A TRUSTEE AND DEDICATED CHOIR MEMBER.

KNOWN FOR HIS INFECTIOUS SMILE AND POSITIVE SPIRIT, BRENT APPROACHED LIFE WITH JOY

AND HUMOR. WHETHER ENJOYING FAMILY GATHERINGS, SPORTS, DANCING, OR DRESSING WITH

STYLE, HE EMBRACED EACH MOMENT WITH ENTHUSIASM.

BRENT IS SURVIVED BY HIS WIFE, LORAINE, SON REV. ANDRE COFFEE (SHAUNTEEKA) OF NEW

JERSEY, GRANDDAUGHTERS DESTINY, TRINITY AND AMBER OF NEW JERSEY, TWIN BROTHER

BRIAN GERMAIN (GRACE) OF CALIFORNIA, SISTER GAIL GERMAIN OF NEW JERSEY, UNCLE

HAROLD (MOLLY) OF NEW JERSEY, AND AUNT JOYCE OF MICHIGAN. HE WAS PRECEDED IN

DEATH BY HIS BROTHER STEVEN AND PARENTS, DONNA AND SAMUEL GERMAIN.

IN ADDITION TO HIS IMMEDIATE FAMILY, BRENT LEAVES BEHIND A HOST OF LOVED ONES. AS WE

CELEBRATE BRENT'S LIFE, LET US REMEMBER THE GOOD MAN WHO TOUCHED HEARTS WITH HIS

LAUGHTER, SMILE, LOVE, AND UNWAVERING FAITH IN GOD. MAY HIS SPIRIT LIVE ON IN THE

CHERISHED MEMORIES HE LEAVES BEHIND, AND MAY HE REST IN ETERNAL PEACE.
