To the family of Brad - our DEEPEST sympathy to you. We were very shocked and sad to hear the news. What a great loss!!! He will be missed by all!!! We will never forget all the memories we had of Brad at the Rock County Fair. He had a heart of gold and was always there to help us! Every morning he would stop by and have coffee. We would talk and catch up on the day until we were too busy making mini-donuts. He would always stop back later to see how things were going. The last time I spoke to Brad was to tell him that we would not be coming to the fair due to the way we had been treated by our boss. He was so very sad! He told us,” It is people like you that make the fair!” I replied back, “No Brad, it is people like you that make the fair!” We will never forget you Brad and all the times we had together. Rest In Peace. With love and sympathy, Ted and Nancy Boecher

To the Whitford family, our sincere grief, shock and sorrow in the death of Brad. We had never really had a chance to see the wonderful things that Brad was able to accomplish in his life but through this site, its associated pictures, and the internet research which Brad's death triggered, it was a wonderful experience to share in what had been Brad's life. I thank Brad for the many years that he spent as part 'our family' in the Green Beret Marching Band. He always had a smile on his face and was full of 'adventure'. Along with Kim and Wayne, the Whitford family created a very positive presence within our organization. I thank you for being part of my life Brad - and for the smiles which I will exhibit as I remember who you were and what you meant to me. Steven Geisler .......
