He was a big, strong, and intelligent man, also a giant teddy bear. He gave the worlds' best hugs and if you were his friend, you knew it. He was the one person that you could count on, day or night, no matter what the circumstance. Brad is loved by so many and will be greatly missed. Brad made a huge mark on this life and will be the best guardian angel we could all ask for.
