I still remember meeting him a our first soccer practice (78'-79') when our coach quit after one practice. We we're probably 14-15 or so. My brother stepped up to coach us and Brad became a favorite of my brother and I, so we became close friends. Soon, in HS we ran cross country and track together. He was the kid to beat and I one time did. It was only once tho' as he was a fast sucker! Small and a thin. We ran together in a group when we trained. We clowned around together and had so much fun. Long miles we ran chatting about anything. We ran in many meets together at all the HS's in Orange County, Ca. We played on the same baseball teams growing up as well. He was one of the smallest guys on the team, and even though he lacked skill in baseball, he made it up in heart! He and I were about the same skill level in baseball, so we batted almost last. Sitting on the bench was full of fun as we joked and rooted on our teammates. Later in HS, Brad got me interested in photography. We spent many afternoons in the dark room... fine tuning the negatives and our pictures. Brad took the time to help me whenever I asked. He was super cool and always with a smile. He was our school photographer and took lots of pictures of me while running in football. He could always be found on the football field every Friday night Or on the basketball court and all the spirit week activities. I can say with certainty that his classmates and friends valued his generosity and time he spent taking this photographs. We lost track of each other after HS but recently on FB- became friends again. We shared stories and even chatted a few months ago. One of the last things he told me was that his fondest memories of our childhood sports together was him playing on our soccer team our first year. He paid a HUGE complement to my brother stepping up to coach that first year. I smiled so much hearing this. Brad was a true friend and a great kind soul. He was extremely liked by his friends and his teachers. Never a bad word did he have about anyone. His photography was his love and I admired his work. GOD, I'm so shocked to hear of your passing. I can't believe it. With nothing but respect for you Brad, I'll miss your kindness. Bless you and your family. I heard you have wonderful children you were proud of. A great family man and father I'm sure. God rest your soul and may he look after you. RIP brother. April 28, 2020 With a heavy heart, I can write only these words, everyone who ever met you was lucky. Gone too soon friend. Way too soon. See you forever later ♥️ Take some killer shots from heaven for us. April 28, 2020 Fly high sweet friend. You were a light and wore a smile that was contagious. I know Christie, Chris, Tom, and many others planned an amazing welcome home party for you. I’m sure your smile and theirs was an awesome sight to see. My deepest condolences to your family and friends. I hope they know how blessed they were to have you touch their lives. We all were. Rest in Paradise. I’ll see you when I get there. April 30, 2020 Deep condolences to Brad’s family. It has been too many years since I worked with a wedding with him, but Brad was a great friend and an artist. The world has lost a very bright light. He will be missed.
