Condolence: My husband Dave and I would like to express our sincere condolences to all the members of Brad's family especially to his wife and children and to his mother (my first cousin Barbara Jo). We were so sorry to hear about this terrible tragedy. From what I've been reading, Brad was one of the givers, one of the "good guys". He was loved and will be missed by all who knew him. You're in our prayers and thoughts.

Thank you all and bless his soul

Condolence: Family,

My deepest condolences go out to you and the community. I have worked along side Brad many times at Clinton Elementary School. He was always willing to come in and help out with any activity that was happening. I truly appreciate the many times he took time out of his day to talk to different boys that would question him about his Boy Scout uniform or Camp Avondale. The boys would ask him when Scout Camp was going to start, and as if they were not excited about it, he would get them even more excited. Brad always had kind words to say about everyone he knew. I never knew him to talk bad about anyone. He is going to be missed by everyone that knew him. May God rest his comforting hand on you during this truly sorrow filled time in your lives.

Condolence: I was so saddened to hear of this tragedy. I last saw Brad at the Clay Shoot at Avondale in May where he was out cooking a big pot of jambalaya for all of us I asked him if he was going to get to shoot with us to which he replied no, l’m working today, and he smiled and kept stirring the pot. That was the Brad I will always remember, he loved to cook and he always was willing to work for others. He was a great example to my three Eagle Scout sons that all knew him and benefited from his work. My condolences to his family and prayers to all.
