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.

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.
