Allen Bradley Cornelius

Brad was born to Brent and Candi Cornelius on August 18, 1982 in Arlington, Texas. He lived most of his life in North Richland Hills, Texas. He married Carissa Kozak on May 31, 2008 and had 1 child, Alexander Bradley Cornelius on July 29, 2014. Brad worked in the family business until starting his own successful business installing custom window coverings in hotels, office buildings and retirement communities.

He loved the outdoors, fishing, hunting and helping out on the family farm. Working with his hands brought him great joy; his true talents showed through his artwork, welding, building, or cooking for family and friends. He also shared a passion for classic muscle cars with his Dad and brothers.

He was preceded in death by his grandfathers A. B. Cornelius and James Nowonty.

He is survived by his Father Brent Cornelius and wife Tammie; siblings Blake, Brendan, Luke, Apryl, Cassidy, Heather and Sierra; Grandmother Brenda Cornelius; uncle Bryan Cornelius and wife Holly; aunt Becky Rainwater and husband Dallas; cousins Hayden, Jake, Katelyn and Joshua; nieces and nephews Hailey, Andrew, Anna, Breydan and Arley; his Mother Candi Zimmerman; Grandmother Jocelyn Thrasher; aunts Wendie and Brandi and many nieces and nephews.

Thank you to his sister-in-law Tiffany Cornelius for all your help with the arrangements.

My sympathy goes out to all the Cornelius family. While working
with IsaBel I saw Brad many times and thought here is a determined
young man. RIP and may God watch over your extended family.
