Bio: Born in Smithville, Missouri, Brad was always committed to serving others before himself.

In addition to serving as a Platte County Sherriff's Deputy from 1998 to 2007, he was a West Platte Volunteer Firefighter. Brad has served the last decade with the Kansas City Kansas Police Department.

It was no surprise that as the Valedictorian Graduate of the Academy, he was a natural at police work and quickly rose to the rank of Detective. Brad was a huge Kansas City Royals fan and thoroughly enjoyed being outdoors. He was an avid outdoorsman who loved camping, rafting, kayaking, and zip lining. He excelled at barbequeing and smoking, and he liked it so much he even made his own smokers. He will always be remembered as a great dad, husband, son and brother, who loved spending time with his family. He loved the Fourth of July, and always entertained his family and friends with the stories he created. Brad could build almost anything, and was especially savvy with math and computers.
