I am so sorry for your loss. I met Brad several years ago when he and his Father had a little dog named LeRoy. They both loved
that little dog so much. Brad was always so kind and loving to his animals, and had a big heart. Whenever I would see him in
town, he had the biggest smile ever. I shall always remember that. My thoughts and prayers are with his family!!!

Oh my gosh there are so many memories of Brad and his entire extended families. Camping, road tripping, or just hanging out listening to some of the most far fetched, yet true stories in the young adult life of Brad. Can you imagine if we had internet and Facebook back then? LOL! There was never ever a dull moment around that man and it seemed like he seriously knew everyone. We pray for his family that they can feel how much they were loved and that bond can get them through the tough times. We are all so blessed to have known such a great guy and we're so thankful to Kristie, Katlyn & Brandon for sharing him with us especially in these last few years. We love you and are here for you all.
