Brad was raised in the Roscoe area and graduated from Hononegah High School in 1983. He worked for Harder Corp until April 2017 and was diagnosed in May with stage 4 bladder cancer that had spread to his liver, lungs, and metastasized to his spine in two areas. Brad recently completed his sixth round of chemo this past August and his family is unsure if more chemo treatment or radiation is in his future. Brad and his wife Vickie live in Rockford and are the parents of two adult children, Kyle and Becca.
