We have so many fun memories of time spent with great neighbors on Spruce Dell Ct. I remember the first time we met Shasta when she and Brady were dating. Fun 4th of July’s, New Years Eve, cook outs, kids playing in the cul de sac. Brady was one of a kind and a wonderful
Man. He loved his family so much and will be sorely missed. Much love and prayers to Shasta and the kids.....

Brady had a huge personality to go with his smile. I was 2 years behind him in HS. We went to a small school so everyone knew everyone. My 1st car was his brother Chuck's 1979 MGB. Prayers for Brady's family and friends.

I went to high school with Brady. He was one of 4 guys in my graduating class. He was full of life and always kept us laughing! I’ll never forget while dissecting a mouse in HS, he creatively made it a cape from its skin! Lol I think I still have the picture of it! We also had several last minute pool/jacuzzi parties to study with friends at my parent’s house... always his idea! He will be missed! ❤️

Deepest sympathy for Brady’s family. I had the pleasure of knowing Brady in high school, graduating together. He was a one of a kind guy. So kind, funny, and smart. Will remember his family in my prayers.

I wanted to express my sincere condolences to Brady's family. Brady was in my small high school graduating class and he was one of the kindest, most accepting classmates that I had. I was able to keep in touch with him sporadically, and I really admired his audacity and his sense of humor. I am so sorry for your loss.

I would like to extend my deepest condolences to Shasta, Colton, Adeline, Kepler and Brady’s entire family with the incredible loss of such a great man. Brady was the funniest, kindest and most thoughtful person, with a smile that could light up the world. He was very talented both musically and artistically. I would just sit back in awe and listen to him play the most incredible music, the brief time that I got to be around him. Shasta, I never got the pleasure of meeting you, but please know that I am sending you and your family prayers of comfort and peace your way. I will pray for your family each and every day. Sending much love, Beth Berkeley Jones ❤️❤️❤️

Brady Thompson will never be forgotten …. I will always tell the story of how he met Shasta the night Ryne was born, how much fun the McNeese's & I had at his wedding, the countless Spruce Dell Ct stories where Brady & Scott brewed beer (Thomuta Brewing Co. was ahead of its time), how he introduced us to Netflix, how I ran over to the house to watch the kids when Kepler was born (fastest baby ever born), and how we were together to celebrate countless milestones with each other’s families. We became family … and even after we moved, we were still family. When Brady found his new house - he was so excited for the life he could give his kids - where they could play outside & enjoy all nature had to offer. We laughed a lot … I will think of him every time Pancho & Lefty plays on the radio - it will always be our inside joke. I can hear him now say “Futa’s” followed by his contagious laugh. He was such a great man and I’m so heartbroken that he is gone. I love you Brady Thompson and I promise to look out for your family, because they are my family too.

My name is Eric Blanchard, QA Consultant @Transunion. The camaraderie we share at Transunion is everywhere and always present, and it can be seen and felt everyday in the office, and even working from home. There is someone missing from among our ranks. That feeling is undeniable, and sadly painful, as that someone was a great and positive influence for each of us in many ways. That someone is Brady Thompson.
I was there when he started with us on the BDS/CORE Team. We were immediately impressed with his knowledge and even more how much of a good person he was. He spoke of his children and their accomplishments often as a proud father, including a recent military camp they attended and their success at that event. As much as his face lit up you could tell how much he loved each of them. And oh, what a lucky man he is to have such a loving wife as Shasta, who I had the pleasure of meeting at the Christmas Party a couple years back.
Since the day he started at Transunion I myself have gained so much from Brady's patience, his intelligence, and his positivity. One of the first things he would scoff at in the morning was his own issues with parking his car in the parking lot, often ribbed by the rest of us for his angular ineptitude as we viewed the obviously crooked car in the parking lot from our window on the 4th floor. And then, it was time for work to be done. He was a creative developer and very knowledgeable in his trade, and also a really great leader. He and I often went to lunch together, but mostly it was the walks after lunch that we shared. His energy was astounding, even around the time he got his hip replaced. I was pretty slow, but he walked with me and helped me get faster over time, and eventually on longer distances during our lunch time. Healthier lunches, great walks, awesome conversation...
He will be sadly missed as a great friend. I am proud to have known him, and better in many ways because of him.
Thank you Brady, and God bless!
