Brad was a life-long learner; he loved music, reading, and enjoyed attending lectures and taking Communiversity classes at Concordia College. He had a variety of interesting jobs. He worked in Sun Valley, Idaho so he could ski after work. Brad also worked for the Lane County Fire Department in Oregon and had some harrowing experiences fighting forest fires. Brad was an avid outdoorsman and was happiest when outside golfing, running, camping, biking, hiking or mountain scrambling. His highlights were tackling the Appalachian Trail, Harney Peak, the Three Sisters, and Mount Rainier. Brad loved family gatherings and spending time with his nieces, nephews, grandnieces and grandnephews. He always wanted to know everything about their activities and loved watching them perform or enjoyed playing a game of catch or whiffle ball with them.
