We met He and his wife at the State Fair of Wv this year 2018 for the first time. We sat at a table together at the Ice Cream Boothe above the Barns. We sat and talked for probably 30 minutes. Nice people to talk to and am sure they brought joy to their family and friends. Our sympathies to the family and friends.

I first met Bradley at the Eastern National at Timonium, Maryland in 1966. He as helping Fred Smalstig with his Shorthorn string. I had come from Scotland in 1965 to work for McKenny Willis with his Shorthorns in Maryland. I immediately recognized Bradley as a fellow Shorthorn fanatic. Julie and I were privileged to get to know he and Shirley over the years, and when we later got into photography in 1999, we pictured their fine cattle at the West Virginia State Fair every year for 20 more.
Bradley was a real stockman and trusted counselor, and we traded many tales about people and bulls we enjoyed recalling.
One of the great rewards we have been blessed with through the livestock fraternity over the years, is the fellowship of rare and genuine folks like Bradley, and we will surely fondly remember him and his friendship.
Our love and best wishes to Shirley and family.

I remember Bradley as an individual who helped us establish a Shorthorn herd at the Masonic Village and who had a wealth of knowledge on the breed. But most of all I remember him as a man of character, integrity and trustworthiness. His advice and guidance was respected. My condolences and prayers go out to Shirley and the family.

We have known Bradley for only a few years but his knowledge and love of Shorthorns was unsurpassed. Through many long phone conversations and visits to the Waynesburg farm we became friends and he was a great help to us. We will miss him. Condolences to Shirley who was always at his side with support and encouragement.

I met Bradley through Pat Stalnaker, my boyfriend. Pat raises Shorthorn cattlle and has known the Eisimingers for several years. We had many great times with Bradley and Shirley as memories were made at their farm looking up cattle, washing and working cattle, discussing cattle, and getting to know more about their area and family through time spent together. Many years of showing the Shorthorns together at the WV State Fair and our trip with them to Canada for a cattle sale will always be cherished. Numerous calves and bulls have been purchased from their farm and at their annual Shorthorn sale. These are now reproducing on Pat’s farm in Glenville, WV. Bradley will be greatly missed.
