I just saw the Steinmetz newsletter with the sad news. I knew Brad from the neighborhood in Chicago and he fixed and painted a couple of my cars (1965 Olds convertible and a 1973 Camaro- one of the best auto/body men around). My condolences

Brad was our cousin- he made us laugh, he was mischievous and took us on great adventures when we were little, fun we'll never forget! We thought he was the greatest! It was a shock to hear this news and with much sadness I send you our deepest sympathy. Brad knew us as Barbie, Davey, Lori, Ricky & Susie

My deepest sympathy to the family. I knew Brad and Randy when I was much younger. We used to hang out together with my brother and friends at a local bar called the Ginger Snap. Randy and Brad were both great guys. I was very sad to hear this news only today about Brad. Maryanne Humphrey (Kearney)
