What a wonderful friend and sax player Brad was! We've had so many great nights performing with him back in the day. Brad was such an upbeat guy who had a great sense of humor and made friends so easily. We will truly miss him and his beautiful music!

Brad was such a wonderful friend. He came to our house and played his sax several times. He was such an amazing sax player and cook. We enjoyed through the years going to see him at different places in Temecula. A couple weeks ago he made a comment on something I posted on Facebook he was so funny. He had such a great sense of humor.
He used to talk all the time about his kids and grandchildren and how much he loved and missed them. Brad our hearts are heavy you will truly be missed by Clint and Tari Perren. We love you
Rest In Peace our dear friend.
