I will so miss walking into the PICU and getting the usual “hey boo!” I always got from Brad accompanied by a big bright smile. There is no one like him in the world and it seems a little dimmer without his light shining bright. My prayers are with his family and close friends whose lives will never be the same.

Brad always made me smile and laugh. Most important he helped me come out as gay. Was a very hard time for me but he stood by me. R.I.P. Brad. Heaven is going to enjoy your unique sense of humor. Avery

I worked at Ochsner with Brad for many years. Brad was always a bright spot who helped make working more enjoyable. He cared so much about his patients - especially the children and babies. I was so sorry to hear the sad news of Brad's passing. My condolences are with his family and his work family. He will be missed.

I loved looking at the pictures of Brad. He was one heck of a guy. He always had a way of putting a smile on the faces of those around him. He was genuine and had a heart of gold. I worked with him for many years at Ochsner in the PICU. Even after I left, he was one I thought of often. I am thankful our paths crossed in life. He will be missed by many.
