I coached Brad in football at Cumberland. He was my original and all-time best "wedge breaker" on kickoff. Whenever my current players ask me about my favorite all-time players, "Dozer" is high on the list. He was a wonderful young man who took life's adversities and built on them, rather than letting them tear him down. I am deeply sorry that I did not know he was ill. I would have driven across the country to see him and dearly wish I had. All of us here are so thankful that he was surrounded by people who loved him and cared for him. Please know that he will be remembered with love and pride.

My heart aches for all of you. Even when you know death is coming it doesn't make it any easier.

I think about the many bus rides with Matt and Brad and watching "Dozer" play football. Lindsay I never got to really meet you (WalMart doesn't count!) but from what I read and hear you are amaing and Brad was so lucky to find you.

Take comfort in knowing you will see him again and this is a "see you in heaven" instead of goodbye. Praying for all of you.

Lindsey, I am so sorry that you only had Brad for a short time but I know from the few times that we have been around your family that you all lived for our savior and he is no longer suffering. It breaks my heart that he had to suffer here. Your family is truly an inspiration to everyone you come in contact with. I think about you often and I definitely praying hard for you and your family to have peace. In God's love... Cathy Lundberg

So sorry to hear of Brad's passing. Brad, Matt and Jessica when their mother was sick spent almost every weekend at our house with my children. I loved them all very much and Brad will be greatly missed. I only recall meeting you once at Red's funeral but it was obvious Brad was in love. He told me then that he was going to church and active with youth group. He use to ask me about church and a lot about heaven. I know his parents and sister are rejoicing to see him again its just hard for the ones he leaves behind. We will keep you in our prayers.The McKibben Family.

I am so dearly sorry to hear of the loss of Brad "Dozer". I went to school with him at both Cumberland High School & Lake Land College and also got the privilege to play football along side him. Brad was truly great man with a incredibly BIG heart and will be greatly missed by all whom were lucky to get to know him. I will be keeping all of you in my thoughts and prayers during this difficult time. Just remember that number 75 is playing on God's team and is together again with his father, mother, and sister.
