On behalf of the WI BAIID program, our deepest sympathies. I will always be thankful for the insight Brad shared with me while he was with IL SOS. As someone recently said in an email, the world lost a good guy. My thoughts and prayers are with all of Brad's loved ones.

I miss you already Brad. You were the best fraternity father I could hope for. What stared as an APO ceremony turned into an amazing friendship. I will never forget all the good times we had at your house and trough Alpha Phi Omega. Love you much and miss you already.

Brad and I worked together very closely during our time at the Secretary of State and became friends. I remember when he first started dating Stacey, we dropped off Dairy Queen while field testing a device. I will always remember our trip to OKC, and the Thunder playoff game we got to see. We also had a great time at a Bulls, Warriors game as well. We got a sneak peek at the Bulls front offices (below). Now that I think about it, I haven't been to an NBA game without Brad. My condolences to Brad's family, he will be sorely missed.
