I just found out about this today and am heavily grieved to tears. I hadn’t heard from him in awhile so I did a search and found this tragic news. My company had a mentorship program and I picked Brad as my mentor, over others in more similar roles to me, because Brad’s and my personality tests showed higher compatibility than most. What a great and providential decision that turned out to be! I’ve only met virtually with Brad, and for only about a dozen mentoring sessions, but that was more than enough time to know what an awesome awesome guy he is. During our first “get to know you” meeting I mentioned I was raised in a Christian home and he latched on to that and asked if I was a Christian, to which I said yes, and he expressed how Christ is the center of his life. Over the course of our sessions I’ve learned so much and am so grateful and honored to have got to have him as a mentor. He gave so much more than just career advice, but life and spiritual advice as well. In the short amount of time I got to spend with him he gave lessons I’ll never forget. He encouraged me to keep trying and to not give up, (noting that he himself felt like quitting early in his career), but also to not be so hard on myself. I lost my father on August 16 2021 and he shared about the loss of his mother and encouraged me, and expressed about the hope we as Christians have to see our loved ones again. Once, he took the time to affirm me and my efforts and to pray over me in our session, what a blessing! One lesson in particular was a quote he shared from T. S. Eliot “teach me to care and not to care” his point for me was to care the right amount about the right things. And, Brad exemplified that, you could tell his priorities were God first and then his family, then the rest, and finally himself. Even in his voice and the way he spoke you heard his centered, calm, patient, understanding, and hopeful spirit. My heart and condolences go out to his family. I can’t fathom the loss. However, if he shepherded his family like he mentored, just keep moving forward like he taught and showed you and everything will be ok. There might be temptation to lose faith, but this is what faith is all about. One more reason to look forward to the next life, because God is not the God of the dead, but the God of the living. And, while he will be sorely missed, he is alive and well, and we will see him again. I will be looking forward to finally meeting him in person. God bless you. Your family are in our thoughts and prayers.

Katie and family, I was in immediate shock when Tori came to me about Brad’s sudden passing. Brad made such an impact on Tori from day one at Crawford Road Baptist Church. One year during summer youth camp in Florida, Tori became sick and Brad took her to the hospital and stayed in touch with me the entire time, even going back to the hospital to change her medications, as she was given medication that she was allergic to, but never once did he complain and in turn I knew Tori was in good hands!! Brad went on to marry my other daughter, Amanda and her fiancé’ approximately 12 years ago. Your entire family will continue to be in our prayers as you go through the days ahead. 🙏🙏

It is so difficult to express the sorrow we feel at your passing. You helped mold Derek into the man, friend, husband, and father he is today. We will forever be grateful for your guidance and wisdom during our pre-marital counseling and for the amazing words you shared while officiating our wedding. You were there to dedicate our daughter to God and gave her her first bible; a gift more precious than any! Thank you for always sharing God’s love and welcoming each one of us with open arms. With love, Derek, Sara, and Jacelynn
