God took you to be with him but he can never take my memories of all the "things" we use to do. The next time I hear a thunderstorm with lightning and thunder I will know that it is you bowling with your buddies. I will miss you terribly "cuz". <3

Brad was a wonderful person to work with. We served on many Realtor Board Activities over the past few years. He had a gentle smile for everyone. Brad was a person that you knew you only had to ask once and it was done. At the Christmas Parade we would be all over the place with last minute details and come Monday after the parade would arrive all of these nice photos of the behind the scene that you never knew he was busy taking. Shelter Ohio he always pitched in and was there to help. Brad will be missed for so many reasons but most of all his kindness toward others...Friend & 2013 Past President of Lancaster Board of Realtors ...Fran L. Miller

Brad will be missed by all who knew him. My husband and I have known Brad for many years. He was a good friend, a fellow bowler, photographer and our realtor. Words can't express the loss we feel. He was one of a kind. Our thoughts and prayers are with his family and friends.

The loss of any loved one or just someone you knew can be very difficult. But Brad had a way of touching the hearts of everyone he came into contact with, and through his death we remember all of the heart-warming memories we shared with him. Brad was one of the many loved ones, I hold in my heart at the bowling alley, who watched me grow into the person I am today. When I told Brad that I would be bowling in college he wrapped his arms around me and told me that he always knew I would accomplish great things. When I last saw him he wished my luck and told me to do my best. Those words meant so much to me, and even though he is no longer here to tell me these thing I know that he will continue to watch over me as I accomplish great things. My prayers are with all of you in your time of loss, Brad was an amazing man with a heart of pure warmth and gold, he will be greatly missed! Keeping you within my thoughts and prayers.
