The best memories I have of Brad relates to his kind hearted nature. I have seen and heard how well he treated his sister Katie. I could also tell, from the way she talked to us about her big brother, that she looked up to him and adored him. His kind heartedness also expressed itself in the way he treated my son Zach. I remember one instance in particular, when Brad was a teenager and 10 years older than Zach. He included Zach in on whatever he and others were doing at that moment; I'm sure it had a great impact on Zach at such a young age. The smile on Brad's face, as he sort of mentored Zach, said a lot about his character. He enjoyed spending time with someone so much younger when many teens would not. He will be missed and his memory will live on for a very long time.

From the short time I knew Brad, I felt like I knew him for a lifetime. That’s the kind of friend he was. Even though I was a grade younger than he was, he would always make sure to look out for my friends and I. His love for his family and friends was genuine and uncompromisable. My favorite memory of Brad was of course all of the neuroscience classes we took together. I didn’t know too many people in that major yet Brad was the one to always sit next to me in class and save a spot for me if I was a few minutes late. We would study all night for those tests in the basement of the building to try and get through the brutal exams and homework assignments given to us. No matter what was thrown at us, Brad still remained passionate to neuroscience which I admired about him. Besides school, Brad remained a close friend of mine. Always checking in on me, wishing me happy birthdays, and always down to grab a couple “beer” with friends. We will miss you and love you Brad!

When our granddaughter, Madison, asked if we could have a cookout 3 yrs ago for her “best guy friend’s” 21st birthday, we agreed. Tho we had never met Brad, it was obvious he never met a stranger and was a friend to all. We bonded over both being Geminis and a dislike of frogs - so we put a glass frog on his cake! He was a pleasure to be around - he made people happy, made people laugh and made people think, as evidenced by the grammatical debate he initiated that night…”is it a case of beer? Or a case of beers?” Such a loving, endearing, remarkable young man who could draw people in with his contagious energy. No eulogy can adequately portray Brad, or what he meant to the many people who loved him. New words would have to be coined to do that. He will always be profoundly missed and lovingly remembered. Even to those who barely knew him, he was unforgettable.

I didn't get the opportunity to spend much time with Brad. When he joined the AT&T B2B Sales Development Program, I was on my way to starting my new role after the program. I had the opportunity to briefly coach and mentor Bradley, as our manager strongly believed in peer to peer coaching. I instantly thought Brad was a bit of a shy person. He kept to himself, and had a slight passive approach compared to the other new members of our team. Brad was a great listener and amazing at digesting information and asking very insightful questions. During a conversation, Bradley shared his passion of sports and pets. We had a detailed conversation about dogs and I realized he had a very big heart. I was very happy to see he was excelling in the B2B Program and that he had made a name for himself amongst his peers. I will always carry that memory of Brad with me and I hope he rests in eternal glory.

Brad was a very energetic and nice friend. He always brought a smile to my team at work and made sure he was always there if anyone needed him. He helped me grow as a working professional and as a human being. He never stopped from being that funny and nice man even when his day didn't go as planned. He was a huge part to our team and he will be missed.

How do I even pick a favorite memory of Brad? Every moment with him was even better than the last. He was like the big brother I always wanted, especially seeing the brother he was to Ben and Katie. While most of my memories of Brad are of us in the library studying or in his room in Phi Psi, some of my most favorite memories was being with Brad at his house in Fishers. After all, that was his favorite place to be. I could see how happy it made Brad whenever we would decide to stay in and hangout at his house, he had his Bossie and his Katie and his Ben and his family right around with us. That’s when he was his happiest, surrounded by the people who love him most. One of my favorite memories was when I asked Brad to hangout one summer day and he literally dropped everything took his Dad’s jeep (infamous) and drove 40 minutes to come pick me up. We also almost got in a car crash immediately after which had us both speechless and crying laughing at the same time. There was never, ever a dull moment with you Bradley. You were an expert at keeping things interesting and keeping everyone around you smiling and feeling good. I know you knew but I still feel like I never told you enough how much you meant and always will mean to me. I can only pray you’ll never be too far from me, as a life without you being just a FaceTime away is a pretty shitty one. I hope to see you in little ways and remember you in songs or countless music videos we streamed together. I know you’ll always be there like you always were.
