i worked with brad on the turn pike in swanton for many years and he would always talk of his mom and grandparents and of the dogs. He will dearly be missed by all who knew him. He has left this life to young but was needed else where. My deepest condolences to his family and all who knew and loved him.

May I offer my sincere condolences. May your hearts find comfort in God's Word where it states: "He will swallow up death forever, and the Lord will wipe the tears from all faces." (Isaiah 25:8) May your loved one awaken to a world where there will be peace, no sickness (Isaiah 33:24), and no more troubles (Revelation 21:4) throughout eternity (Psalm 37:29). May your hearts find comfort and hope in God

I had the pleasure of being a co-worker with Brad. He always had a great smile. I always enjoyed discussions he would lead us into on mythology, which he was very knowledgeable about. He was a very good hearted man and we will all feel a void from his having passed on so early in his life. Deepest sympathy is extended to his Mom and other family members.
