After trying to reach out to Brad a couple of times over the past few weeks, I received a text from his daughter on Thursday.  He passed on August 5th.

I passed on our condolences.  Rest in peace Brad.

So sad. We've lost an outstanding Geek.
RIP, Brad.
You learn more by listening then you do from talking.


Sad news indeed.  Thanks for letting us know.  He will be missed.

Extremely sad...I never had the pleasure of meeting him in person, but he participated in all of my passes, and turned me onto some of my favorite cigars I keep stocked in my humidor now. We definitely lost an amazing geek! RIP brother

Rest in peace Brad.  He was an outstanding brother and I know no one could argue that.  Will certainly be missed.

     Lost a great guy. Really going to miss him. Very sad.
I am not concerned about what you think as I can tell you don't do it often.

I used to be a people person, but then people ruined that for me.

RIP brother ,you will be missed 


Praying for Brad and his Family. may he RIP. One of the best geeks.


Brad was truly one-of-a-kind.  Generous to a fault.  He will surely be missed by all of us.

This is really sad.  Never met Brad but had some dealings and interaction with him here on the site. Thinking of his family

Apologies if my original message seemed short. Brad and I spent a good bit of time together. We attended a lot of the same cigar events, I met his family, and he was all around a great guy. Even though he and I didn't see a lot of each other in the past few years since I moved further out of town, this news was tough. He will definitely be missed!

So sad to hear.

Will be firing up a Xiphos cigar in his honor.
