His kids and granddaughter were his pride and joy. He was happiest when surrounded and making memories with those he loved.

Brad had a strong work ethic (which he credited to his dad, Don, that led to the creation and ownership of multiple successful businesses.
As an avid sports fan, Brad spent much of his time watching sports, collecting autographs, coaching his kids, and playing with them. Other hobbies included umpiring/playing softball, listening to music, motorcycling, hunting, boating, drinking Dr Pepper, and all things outdoors.
