In high school (Watertown, NY) I lived two doors down from Brad but lost track of him over the years after I graduated. I remember him as a fun loving guy who had a lot of energy, a great sense of humor and a kind heart. When I was the new kid on the block he went out of his way to make me feel welcome in the neighborhood. He was a really great guy. I think he use to take Karate lessons or something because I have this funny memory of him running around in a white Karate suit throwing jump kicks in the air. I also remember he had a pet tarantula that would get loose in the house and that would freak out his mom. Brad was well liked by all of his friends and my deepest sympathies go out to the family.

I graduated with Brad and I'm saddened by his passing. He was always nice to me during high school. I enjoyed his posts on Facebook, and he was so proud of his family. He certainly enjoyed life. My husband recently passed away unexpectedly, so I understand what the family is going through. May God give his wife and family comfort and peace until they meet again.

Brad was my friend. I worked with him for about 4 years in multiple capacities at 2 different hospitals. It was a pleasure to work with him because he was an amazing nurse with great bedside manner and a broad knowledge base and skill set. He was always willing to help in whatever way was needed and seemed to always be moving about 20 mph faster than anyone else. His patients and coworkers will miss him fiercely. Farewell my friend.
