I would like to give my condolences to the family. I first met Brad when his Father and his Company came to Syngenta in Greensboro NC on April 1st of 2001 that is the date I started working for Brad and his Family. Brad was always very up best and a very personable and Everytime he would come to Greensboro he always had time to speak with you and he also knew who you were. Brad was a good person to work for and always wanted the best for everyone. RIP Brad and my God bless you for ever.

Brad will be missed dearly. I remember so many precious memories of all the “Granchildren” fun gatherings at Memaw and Granddaddy’s when we were younger...especially the Christmas times! The picture of all of us at the table on the movie brought these special times back. What fun we all had! Brad was one of the quieter members of our group but he knew how to join in on all our mischievous plans while we were together. I only wish we all could have stayed in close contact as we got older but as life has it with our own precious spouses and children, along with work responsibilities, there is only so much time. One of my last memories of Brad is how he thanked me for a memory post I made for Jo Lyn after she passed. It meant a lot to me that he made a point to come tell me that he appreciated it. I pray God will wrap his arms around his beautiful wife and daughters, father, sisters, brother, nephew and nieces and give them strength in the days ahead. Brad really made a difference in so many lives and the memories he created will remain.
Love and Prayers,
Krystal

The sadness I feel is nothing compared to those who are family. However, since I first learned of the fight Brad was facing there was such a hope and fear in my heart. This man that had such an easy smile, a gentle manner, and a personification of what I often said to my son when he was young - 'it is better to be real than to be cool'.
To me Brad was real as a human. People could count on him even though they might not hear from him what all he was thinking. The people he built relationships with are better because he was there and are grieved now because he is gone.
The fog of grief will be with me and I'm sure with others for quite awhile.
I have felt a part of the Wood and Greenwood families for many years and am grateful.
To Leigh and all family my heart is with you. To Greenwood, Brad is physically no longer there but the clocks and the business will, I'm sure, keep on ticking.

Brad Wood was quite simply one of the best people that I have ever met in my life. Period. You could not spend two minutes with this guy and not quickly grasp that this was a caring, authentic man who had a core of goodness. I can still recall my first meeting with him; my thought: "You may be too nice to be in business." :) He was completely without guile; what you saw was what you got. Honest and sincere every time. I enjoyed every interaction with him. One of the all-time great fellows. My heart is broken for his family and friends.
With much affection and respect, Bryan Cokeley (Charleston, WV).

Brad, you will be sorely missed. It was obvious from the first time meeting you , your dad and your sister that it was all about family. It was a privilege working for you and being part of the GreenWood. family.

I would like to send my condolence to all the family and close friends of Bradley. I have known this family since 1995 when I came to work for Greenwood at the Merck site in Elkton Va. From the first time I met with Brad's father John, I knew how kind and wonderful this family would be to work for...….I have worked for Brad's company almost every year since that date, and have always been amazed at how family oriented they are. The wonderful smiles they carried was an inspiration each time they visited, and as they left, I always had the feeling that they really cared for each of their employees, like they were family as well. Brad was a very cheerful person, and had a way to bring smiles to others faces in just a short conversation. Words cannot express the hurt and sorrow this brings to me, and all the guys at our job site (Elkton), But as a Christian I know that Brad is in a better place than we are, and pray to see him in the future...….As I said before, I do send my deepest sympathy to all the family, and that all the great memories will be able to shadow their grief at this time in their life...…..With my Love and Great memories,

Manuel Lam and Family

It breaks my heart to hear about Brad. I worked with him at the Elkton, VA job site. Always very kind, polite and wore a pleasant smile. Prayers for the family that they will be comforted by all the precious memories they shared with him. God bless!

My heart aches for Leigh and all the family. I lived across the street from Brad's parents and we were close friends so I have so many memories. Mostly I remember Brad as "Fred," a handsome, quiet young man who smiled shyly and always had his bulldog with him when he came home to visit. My thoughts and prayers are with the family as they deal with this heartache and grief. I pray that each of you will find comfort and peace.

Much Love,

Linda McNamara

Brads kindness and generosity make me proud to be part of the Greenwood team here at Caterpillar. Thanks to his company I am in a good place to provide for my family. I am so very sorry he has left us way too soon. I have only met and spoken with him a few times and regret I did not know him better on a personal level.
