Brad was a member of BAC Local 8, Bricklayers and Allied Craftsman for more than 25 years; making his mark on many buildings in Saint John and surrounding areas. He was a skilled tradesman who applied his trade as an art. Brad loved the outdoors, especially bird hunting and trout fishing. He enjoyed long drives - especially to visit his granddaughters, Abigail and Leah - with his partner, Mary, who rarely left his side. He also enjoyed tinkering in the garage on projects with his special helper, his grandson, Griffin. Brad loved his sons and his grandchildren more than anything in this world.
