  1. I had a great respect for Brad. When i met him at Carthage College he use to take alot of teasing for his profession of faith in the Lord Jesus Christ as his personal Lord and Savior. Rest in peace Brad. I will be seeing you in heaven. My condolences to his family. Dale Vanderpool

  2. I was so sad to hear of Brad’s passing. I know I haven’t seen Brad for years but I have so great memories of Brad from Moody. I know he will be missed. Praying for your family that you will experience God’s peace at this time.

  3. I knew both Brad and Ross growing up in the old neighborhood. We played a lot of baseball together and have many fond memories. So sorry to hear of his passing. Our prayers and thoughts for him and his family.. RIP Brad

  4. Your Dad played a very significant part in ours lives when we went to Bethel. He married Tim and I, dedicated our children to the Lord, officiated at my father in law’s funeral, and my Mom’s and Dad’s funerals. He was also in the room with us when our baby, David, died. He did David’s memorial service. He was a real shepherd to us. May the Lord give all of you comfort and peace.
