Brent Lewis Trueblood, 55, Barclay: Aug. 22, 1964 – Feb. 19, 2020

BARCLAY, Kan. – Brent Lewis Trueblood, 55, passed away Wednesday, Feb. 19, 2020, at Stormont Vail Hospital, Topeka, Kan. He was born Aug. 22, 1964, in Emporia, Kan., the son of Bill Trueblood and Shirley Betts.

Brent attended Osage City High School and graduated with the class of 1982. After high school he would begin his lifelong career in the agricultural world with John Deere schooling. He began working for John Deere in 1987 in Hillsboro, Ohio, for Five Points Inc. He then transferred to the Georgetown, Ohio, location, at Cahall Bros. Inc. In 2008 Brent decided to make the move from Ohio back to Kansas where he would continue his work with Prairie Land Partners, in Emporia. After 30 years of being employed with John Deere, in the fall of 2019 Brent took all of his experience to start his dream of working out of his own shop at Barclay, Kan.

Brent shared his love of farming with everyone that he came into contact with and was highly respected by all of those he worked with. He enjoyed a lifelong love of keeping farmers going in the fields, cheering on the Ohio State Buckeyes and Kansas City Chiefs, all things John Deere, and most of all family time.

He will live on in the hearts of his mother, Shirley Betts and stepfather, Roger Betts; fiancé, Dawn Andersh; two sons, Austin Trueblood and fiancé, Ashley, and Blake Trueblood; a brother, William “Scott” Trueblood; and a sister, Crystal Sixbury and husband, Dan.

A celebration of his life will be at 1 p.m. Sunday, March 1, at the Reading Community Center, 613 First St., Reading, Kan.
