He went on to graduate from the University of Utah with a degree in Chemical Engineering in 1970. That same year, Brent married Laurel Kunz and was the proud father to son David in 1972.

Ward, two brothers Doug and Kelly, sister Kathy Willis, son David, sister-in-law LaRee Ward, daughter-in-law Monica Ward, and grandchildren Simone and Nicholas Ward.
