I thank Bob Israel for reconnecting Brad and me during the pandemic after Brad and I last saw each other in 1978. Brad and I then talked for over two hours by phone and it was like we had only been away for 42 days rather than 42 years. Brad's jovial nature was still pervasive even as he told me about numerous physical challenges. We planned to meet up for dinner in May 2021 but Brad was ill so we planned to meet August 2021 but it didn't happen. Brad's handling of his health issues was an inspiration. I'll dearly miss my friend of 60 years. Rest in peace, Brad.

I am so sorry to hear this news! I worked with Brad in the mortgage industry and he was always the most kind and sweetest man. Never had a mean word to speak. I would often go to Sunset Grill to hear his music talent. RIP -
My thoughts and prayers to Kasey, your wife and family.
