Following his graduation from NHS, Brad followed his sister Alyssa to the Buffalo area where he attended the University of Buffalo graduating in 2017 with a Bachelor of Science Degree. Brad liked adventure. Following his graduation he and his girlfriend Hannah, loaded up the pick-up truck and camper and set out cross country. They eventually ended up in Arizona where they both worked for a brief period of time before deciding to return to the Buffalo area.

Over the years he had sung in several area talent shows as well as singing in the Park Place Idol night where he drew a standing ovation. He found peace and solitude in playing his guitar and spending time outdoors. Throughout his life Brad was mechanically inclined and it goes without saying he had a great passion for motorcycles.

Your family pictures are so beautiful. It is obvious Bradley was part of a loving close family. His loss will leave a hole in your heart forever, but the memories will bind you all closer together.

To our friends who are family, I knew when I married into the Burch family, it meant automatically joining the Robinson family too. I remember bewildering family holidays as I tried to figure out who was married to who and what kids belonged to what parents. I can picture Bradley best from these early years--a giant, perpetual grin on his face. My heart is warmed to see that same smile in all of the pictures you've shared here. Our sadness for you does not have words or wisdom for how you survive this....it is a feeling beyond what we will be able to convey to you this week or in the weeks, months, and years to come. We send our love and our prayers that Bradley will appear in the most unexpected ways and moments--that his smile will always shine in your memories and your hearts.

Judy, Alyssa, Ryley. Pat and John, Dawn and Kevin, Terri and Steve, Janet and Ross, Janelle and Scott, Troy, Tracy, and Tim (Karen and Carl please introduce Bradley to the rest of his family up there. And seriously, how much would Glenn have loved to know that Bradley would be a descendant?), all the cousins I can't keep up with, and anyone who loved Bradley, I give my deepest, most heartfelt condolences, I could not be sadder if he was my own child. I consider the Robinson and by association and marriage, the Chawgo family to be my own. In my too few visits to his house, Bradley always seemed to be focused and on a mission. With any luck at all, his true mission started Monday night. I love you all and mourn with you.
