He qualified and wrestled in the 1998 TSSAA Division/State wrestling Tournament. Brad's charitable heart was extended to many. Be it, helping someone move to building a wheelchair ramp for a World War II veteran. Whatever your need was he would show up. Brad never knew a stranger. His infectious smile would always lift you up. He had a great sense of humor. His quick-witted quips kept grins on many faces. He would always share a joke and loved to pull pranks. Brad shared his love of the outdoors with his family on trail rides, camping, fishing, hiking, and hunting. Brad adored his children and was an "Amazing Daddy".
