Marengo- Brent Allen Strasser was born February 5, 1978 in Marengo, Iowa, the son of Roger Allen and Annette Kay (Moennich) Strasser. He was baptized February 26, 1978 and confirmed April 12, 1992 at St. John Lutheran Church, Homestead. He graduated from Williamsburg High School in 1996. On March 14, 2015 Brent was united in marriage to Carrie Ann Noe at St. John Lutheran Church, Homestead. He owned and operated Strasser Trucking. After graduation, his passion for the wheat harvest took him to Kansas. His nickname Strapper came from his early start in trucking with R.H. Hummer. Brent's dedication to his love of cattle and trucking led him to be a part of an Iowa convoy delivering hay and supplies to Kansas farmers who suffered major loss during the 2017 fires.
He also enjoyed coffee with the guys and spending time with his family. Brent looked forward to and enjoyed his annual fishing trip to Lake Erie with friends. Brent will always be remembered for his sense of humor and rarely did a song come on the radio that he didn't know the words to.
Brent was a lifelong member of St. John Lutheran Church. Brent died on Monday, October 4, 2021 at the University of Iowa Hospitals in Iowa City at the age of 43 years.
