“We will all miss his energy and passion, which we were so lucky to experience. Brad was a second-to-none creative mind, and we were so fortunate to have a had chance to work with him and get to know him for the truly incredible person he was.

“Our thoughts are with Brad’s wife, Debbie, his three daughters, and all of his family and friends at this time.”
