Bradley Wayne Kendrick, a native of Baton Rouge, Louisiana and a resident of New Orleans, passed away unexpectedly on October 7, 2021, at University Medical Center in New Orleans. He was a graduate of Christian Life Academy in Baton Rouge, attended Louisiana State University and Southeastern Louisiana University where he received an IT degree. He was employed by Accruent, a global software company, where he was well liked and very highly thought of by his co-workers and bosses. Bradley came into this world on March 28, 1977. He spread laughter and love wherever he went. He loved to fish and hunt with his friends. Brad’s crawfish boiling skills were legendary; he hosted many memorable occasions. He will be forever missed by his mother, Penelope Barrios Kendrick, his sister, Bonnie Adele Kendrick, his brother, John Harvey Kendrick, Jennifer Keen and their Bassett Hound Lucy, his aunts, uncles, cousins, and his many friends. Bradley was preceded in death by his father, Randy Wayne Kendrick, his maternal grandparents, Marcelle Neumann Barrios and Henry C. Barrios, and his paternal grandparents, Doris Morgan Kendrick, and John Harvey Kendrick. Brad’s family and friends would like to thank the emergency and ICU medical staff and nurses at University Medical Center for taking such great care of our Brad. We especially thank Dr. David Janz, Director of Medical Critical Care Services at University Medical Center, whose kindness will never be forgotten. Brad has always been an extraordinary blessing to his family and as an organ donor he will also be a blessing to so many others as well. We would like to thank the exceptional people at LOPA who helped us through this process. Family and friends are invited to attend the visitation to be held on Friday, October 15 from 5:00pm to 8:00pm and on Saturday, October 16, from Noon to 2:00 pm with service to follow at 2:00pm at Rabenhorst Funeral Home, 825 Government Street, Baton Rouge, Louisiana.

Brad,
A Louisianan through & through. Cousin, You Loved Family, loved all Holidays & Festivals, loved cooking Real Louisiana Food and sharing it, loved the outdoors especially fishing. Those fishing stories we shared with each other I will cherish and never forget. We were looking forward to getting our lines wet together in the Spring when Sheila and I were planning a long visit with you and all our family. We’ll so miss you!

You've taken a piece of our hearts with you Cousin Brad and left us with amazing memories that we will cherish forever. I will miss the twinkle in your eyes and your infectious laugh. Holidays will never be the same; no day will ever be the same; and saying goodbye to you today will be the worst.

I remember him showing up at my birthday party in the back room of Sammy's on Highland. It was then that I felt maybe I am not as disliked as I thought. Such a great guy. My heart, thoughts, and love go out to Bonnie and his family in this time of despair.

Dear Bradley,

I have known you since the day you were born. We were not blood-relatives, but you were family. The amount of childhood memories I have of being with you, Bonnie, and Johnny are endless. Just to name a few…the blow up jump-houses in your front yard for birthday parties, playing hide and seek in our backyards on summer weekend nights, dressing-up like Star Wars and running through the house with light sabers, eating delicious dinners our moms made together, eavesdropping on our dads talking about their younger years, your family visiting us when we moved to Florida, looking for seashells, jumping in the waves, going with you to my first house-party ever, the list goes on…

Over the years we grew up, lost touch, and then reconnected on social media. Your life seemed as full as ever. I could see the love Penny, Bonnie, and Johnny all had while being with you. Jennifer, Lucy and your friends seemed to love you just as much as your family. You never lost your love for life that you had when I knew you best as a child and a teenager.

“My heart goes out to the entire Kendrick family and loved ones. I pray each of you get through this deep period of sadness with the hand of God on your shoulders and Bradley in your hearts.”

With love and prayers,
Jessica Brown

Brad, you were the FIRST person to be nice to me and take me under your wing as a new server at Ralph & Kacoo's. When I was too embarrassed to admit that I didn't know how to open a bottle of wine, you showed me how. There was never an ounce of condescension in you. You brought light and laughter into the room and put people at ease with your open acceptance. You'll be missed by so many. Enjoy the next chapter, man! Lots of love xxx

My condolences to all for your loss. I worked with Brad at MICROS. He was such a wonderful person.. smart, witty and full of life. He always had a fun story to tell and was willing to lend a hand wherever it was needed. Everyone just knew he would go far. I'm so sorry that his time on this Earth was cut so short.
