My condolences to Mary and the family at Brad’s passing.
I will miss a man who became my big brother during my college years at K- State. He became my brother in Christ for life. He loved to stop and talk to people.
I will miss our many meals and coffee together.
Lots of coffee! And the motorcycles!
Gob Bless you brother.
Thanks!

Brad will be missed is an understatement. Brad was always one to stop and spend time with folks. He never seemed to be in a hurry ~ always had a kind word or lay a hand on your shoulder and pray for you.

Yes, Brad was a man of deep faith. Indeed his smile and little 'wink' will be missed by all who knew him...

Happy Trails my friend ~ may the wind be always on your back...

May the Peace of the Lord be with you and your family..
