Brad was taken from us, at the hands of another man,at the young age of 44. Dreams and future plans have been shattered by our loss of this man. Treasured memories are all we have left. He is now a guardian watching over us and is deeply missed by all of us every single day. Fat Pig BBQ Sauce was his baby and in his memory, we are continuing this with family and friends, as he would want us to.

Brad's personality was love, wit, humor & loyalty. The love of my life for 20 years until forever with love, laughter, cooking, entertaining. We survived our struggles through the years because I married my best friend. Not a day went by without giggles... if any situation got too boring or serious, you could count on him for some shenanigans to make you laugh. I miss my guy more than words could ever express!

Brad had a definite love of sports, especially his Minnesota Vikings, Wild & Twins. We annually tailgated the Vikings games with family & friends. Many great sporting event memories with his daughters, Brothers Bob & Brian, nephew Tyler, Cousins Scott & Emily, best friends Barry, Brenda, Annie & Chris!

Brad loved entertaining! "Host with the Most" was definitely him. He loved to have company, grilling, slow-smoking, cooking. The Grill Master for sure! The best sous chef ever! He made all of our pasta & ravioli from scratch! (Heck, give him a vacuum cleaner and he would be moving furniture and getting every corner! He could put me to shame.)

The best ~ Brad & His Mom (AKA Reg, B'geen, Chink, Rose). I always knew when he was calling his mom because it started with HIIIIII-LOWWWWW. I miss hearing that! I know she does too. Bless her broken heart. I love you Reg! You're the best Mom, Mom-In-Law, & Grandma!
Miss our Brad so much! Life will never be the same without you. Please God bless you and please God help us endure this loss. Love you my love!
