Brad grew up in Morgantown, WV and was a proud graduate of Morgantown High School as well as West Virginia University.  You could often find him at The Pines golfing, volunteering at the hospitals, and enjoying his collegiate days as a member of the Phi Kappa Psi Fraternity.  After graduating from the WVU School of Physical Therapy, Brad left Morgantown to join another WVU Alum as a physical therapist in Kentucky, but he always remained a faithful Mountaineer wherever he went.

Brad was a devoted father and grandfather who always beamed with pride over his children and grandchildren. In his spare time, Brad was an avid boater and loved to spend his Wednesday afternoons with his beloved life partner, Diana Hinkle, at the Clarke County Conservation Club.

Brad’s contagious smile and pleasant personality made him a friend to many. He deeply cherished his neighbors of Riverwood Forest, coworkers and patients from VNA, and friends from the CCC club, Redneck Yacht Club, and Admiral’s Anchor dock.
