I was very sad to hear about Brad. I worked with him for a short time at GEO. He would stop into the records area from time to time to gather information he needed for work. He was always very pleasant to visit with and we looked forward to seeing him. He was a good person and that was very evident. Sending blessings and love to all his family at this sad time.

I knew Brad but I didn't have the opportunity to know him like my husband, they worked together at an ICE facility, however, I do have the honor of knowing his Sugar Bear Betty. I know their love was true and real. May a legion of Angles surround you Betty with peace, comfort and our Abba hold you in His hands. You will be missed, RIP Brad.

I only had a short time of knowing Brad from working at the same ICE Facility but during that short time we had many conversations and story's of our lives. I will miss our conversations and even though we didn't know each other very long you will be missed.

Many nights we would all spend together just enjoying conversations and having fun. Couldn't forget the night we all got together for,l the alabama/LSU game. A memory for the books. Brad you will be greatly missed. Our prayers are with you betty and we love you tons!!

I had the great pleasure to work with Brad in Brownsville in 1998 when we were both rookie Immigration Inspectors. Brad had a way to make his peers laugh either with his funny stories, funny attempt at speaking Spanish or Boudreux and Thibodeaux jokes. He was a very pleasant person to be around. When he left Brownsville in the early 2000s I was happy for him because was going back home but knew I would miss his antics. I kept in touch with him over years and when we spoke we always recalled some of our funny stories from the port of entry. We had a lot in common back then since we where both newcomers to the Rio Grande Valley who had young families so we hit it off right away. He would always speak with great pride of his family and displayed his admiration for them. My friend Brad, I hope you are resting with the angels and telling them jokes or teasing them with those Bubba teeth you used to wear in primary inspection. Your pal Joe Esquivel.

Brad, I will miss you! What a gregarious personality, I don't ever recall a person he would not help. He was a wonderful shoulder to lean on, an amazing guy to tell a story and laugh with. We travelled around the world together, creating special "life" moments that I will always treasure. This world could use many more like him.
