I’m so very sorry for your loss. Brad was truly, one of a kind. He was a neighbor and a good friend. Brad was always there to help. Whenever a hurricane or tropical storm was coming Brad would bring over a generator, without being asked. I could always count on Brad. Tough and gruff on the outside, he was a caring gentle soul inside. I’m proud to have been Brad’s friend!

So very sorry to hear about Brad’s passing. He and I went all the way through school together and had many good times growing up on Isle of Hope. I never could figure out when I spent the night with him why we had to go frog gigging in the school yard at four or five in the morning when I would rather have been sleeping but that was Brad. Had many wonderful camping and hunting trips with him throughout the years. He was a true friend and will be greatly missed. God Bless your families. Buddy Bacon
