Brent Joshua Battle

Brent Joshua Battle entered Heaven at the age of 38 on December 14, 2022. Brent was born to David Matthew Battle and Phyllis Piper Battle on April 16, 1984, in Oklahoma City. He is survived by his parents and his brothers, Brian Battle (Carla) and Jeremy Battle (Kendra) along with his nephew, Joseph, and niece, Isabella, Brian's children. He is also survived by many aunts, uncles and cousins. He is predeceased by his grandparents, James and Ellen Battle, and Charles Bruce and Wanda Piper. Brent attended Harvest Hills Elementary and then Oklahoma Christian Schools, OCS, from the 4th grade through High School, graduating in 2002. As a youth, Brent introduced his family to roller hockey and played in a local league with both of his brothers. He was an avid swimmer, taught himself how to snowboard on family ski trips, and played the drums in his high school band. He created music with various instruments and his own vocals. He loved creative writing, drawing, comedy, many types of music, and watching professional and college sports such as basketball and football, playing fantasy football with his friends. His favorite teams were the Oklahoma State Cowboys and the OKC Thunder. In his senior year Brent's high school band was honored to play in Washington D.C. at the Thomas Jefferson Monument, Washington's Mount Vernon and a Veteran's home. On that trip he was selected to lay the wreath at the tomb of the Unknown Soldier. He attended college at Oklahoma State University earning a B.S. degree in Journalism & Broadcasting in 2006, where he wrote for the college newspaper and later for the Edmond Sun. He later returned to Oklahoma State University to go to the Boone Pickens School of Geology, earning his Bachelor of Science and Masters Degree in Geology. He performed landman and mud-logging work for independent companies after graduation. In 2005, he received 2nd Place from the Oklahoma Broadcast Educators Association for his Radio Commercial. He loved the outdoors and especially his geology field studies while preparing for his masters thesis. He was deeply intrigued by the study of the earth's physical structure and would often state his greatest academic accomplishment was publishing his research paper on the Cleveland Sandstone. This work was copyrighted in the U.S. Library of Congress. Brent greatly admired his graduate professors, especially Dr. Jim Puckette, who challenged him with his thesis topic.At a young age, Brent received Jesus Christ as his personal Savior and was baptized at Cathedral of Praise World Outreach Center in Oklahoma City, OK. He was a faithful member of Heritage Baptist Church and Henderson Hills Baptist Church. From childhood Brent had a very big heart, was generous, witty, artistic, a loyal friend and deeply loved his family. We are grateful that Brent passed away peacefully in the presence of his family and rests now in the arms of his Heavenly Father. Brent's memories will carry on in our hearts forever.
