Brad enjoyed spending time outdoors, you could always find him at the lake fishing, and boating with his wifey, children, grandchildren and close friends. Brad loved entertaining and making holidays, especially Halloween and Christmas, very special for his family. He lived for those moments of seeing the children and grandchildren's eyes light up. Brad knows he is the go to guy for the best Ukrainian food and burger joints in Manitoba.
As a long-haul truck driver Brad cherished his job at Penner Oil hauling fuel across Manitoba including ice road trucking.

You have touched many people's lives. You were a generous person. I will miss seeing your posts on Facebook. You surely will be missed Brad. R.I.P - Posted by: DeAnna Kern (My cousin Gertrude's Husband) on: Jul 19, 2021
My best memories as a child were hanging out at your house with you and your brothers. I have known you since we were just small children. I remember all the things that we built and broke. I always felt welcome in your house and with your family. I have fond memories of all of you and your brothers. I still drive by the house on Besant and think about all the things we had done as kids. I share some stories with my family and it is like living it all over again. Those were the best of times as a child. You will be greatly missed my friend. - Posted by: Ray Asselstine (childhood friend) on: Jul 19, 2021
A life welled-lived, my friend. We were friends growing up on Besant. Your love for Christmas Lights is something I carry with me every Christmas season. How we spent hours walking around EK looking at them. Every year I tag you in all the back yard toboggan video I see on Facebook. I’m going to miss you. You and your family are the heart of my memories on Besant. You are a good friend, with a big heart. I’m going to miss you. We both got busy with our lives. I always love those times when we would run into each other mostly at the LC -lol. We said we should get together, but life always happened. We share our family pictures on Facebook. My parents moved from Besant two years ago, must be my age there isn’t a day I don’t think about Besant. I was reading your kids memories and stories how you showered them with love. Yep that was so you. Rest In Peace my friend. I will miss you. - Posted by: Bonnie Asselstine Hay (Childhood friend ) on: Jul 18, 2021
So sad at the loss of my cousin Bradley. My heart goes out to my auntie Pat and cousin Darrell. Brad's dad's name was Sam. I always called him uncle Sam. Bradley will see his dad again and brother Rodney. God Bless all family members. - Posted by: Gail Post (first cousin) on: Jul 17, 2021
