Thomas Brenton Aaron Jr., 80, fondly known as "Cap'n Brent", of La Plata, Maryland, passed away on Sunday, June 27, 2021 at the Charles County Hospice House in Waldorf.
Born on August 22, 1940 in Baltimore, he was the son of the late Thomas B. Aaron Sr. and Jean Aaron. Brent raised in Baltimore and later on Hooper's Island. He spent his childhood weekends with his grandparents, living the "Tom Sawyer" life on the water. As a young adult, Cap'n Brent sold insurance for Monumental in Baltimore but the off shore life kept calling him back. He became a Union pile driver and later served as a barge Captain in Saudi Arabia in the Persian Gulf while building a liquid petroleum gas trestle. He and his family lived on Cobb Island for many years. Cap'n Brent then took up being a commercial waterman. He later then owned and operated two Fin and Claw Restaurants and Seafood Markets. The love for the offshore life not only involved Cap'n Brent's career, but his spare time as he loved fishing and cooking for his family and friends. He was widely known throughout Charles County for his seafood as well as his charming character.
In addition to his parents, Brent was preceded in death by his wives Jeanie and Mary; son Matthew.
He is survived by his wife Pat; three children; nine grandchildren Elizabeth, Atley, Jacob, Grant, Emily, Mary Jane, Barry, Chuck, and Maddie; one sister; his two golden retrievers, Harley and Davidson.
