Thinking of you and your family. Sorry I missed posting a note at the beginning of the year.
A great friend who I will never forget.
I love you. I know you would do whatever it took to find Ginny. Please remind God to watch over her and keep her safe. You are closer to him than me.

BRAD,MISS YOU,THINKING OF YOU,A GREAT NEPHEW AND IT WAS FUN OUR VACATIONS,GREAT FUN IN COLUMBUS AND YOUR TRIPS TO FL.I LOVE YOU!!! UNCLE JIM
I just learned of Brad's passing thru the UGA Terry college obituary. I knew Brad in highschool and all throughout our years at UGA. My thoughts and prayers are with his wife and four children. We will never forget you Brad.
I can't believe you have been in heaven for 6 months. I look forward to our talks more than you know. I love you Big Brother... :*
I was just just lucky to know you.
I met Brad when we worked together at Systems Center in Irving, TX. He was truly the epitome of a Southern gentleman. He was funny, and charming and underneath that was a brilliant and smart mind. We had recently reconnected and enjoyed a long phone chat and reminisced about good times at work and had planned on a reunion. I am saddened beyond words - for his beautiful wife & children - they have lost an amazing husband and father. His family was his world and priority. I am heartbroken for our loss - he was a wonderful friend and coworker. Rest in peace dear friend, you were one of a kind.
What Id give to see that smile once more .
I miss you sooo much. I have so many things to tell you. I hope you can hear me. I love you. Julie
I love you, and I miss you. I cannot imagine my life without you...
We are missing you Brad...but remembering your huge smile and great laugh is such a comfort. Your beloved DAWGS are playing today. I will be thinking of you and your family a lot.
I am so sad to hear about Brad. Words cannot express the deep sorrow I feel for Brad's family. Please know that you are in my thoughts and prayers and that Brad is in a better place.
Although I had not seen or talked to Brad in many years, I will always remember his great smile and sense of humor. He was fun to be around and will be missed.
Sadness doesn't even begin to describe how I feel about your loss of Brad. We worked together for several years at CA. I learned so much from him. I was a much better sales manager (and still am today) for the insight that he would give me after each sales call. He was a wonderful teacher. He always tried to see the positive even in the most difficult situations. We had a great Cardinals/Braves rivalary (and he loved it when his trips to St. Louis coincided with a sporting event).We had many wonderful converstations about family and life in general. He was committed to being the best dad that he could be. I will never forget his excitement on the day Zoe was born. He just couldn't contain himself. Each conversation we had would begin "let me just tell you what the 4 Z's have been up to.." His technical prowess was unparallel. His friendship: priceless
May the Lord bless all of you during this time. I will miss him!

The Yurchuck Family,
I am so sorry to hear of your loss. I worked with Brad when I was at TSYS and he has been a great business friend of mine through the years. Brad was such a great person and a gentleman. I have the highest regard for this work ethic and the way he treated people. I always enjoyed seeing his smile and I will always remember that when I talked to him on the phone I could still see that smile on his voice and it always made my day. Your family will be in my thoughts and prayers.
May the love of friends and family carry you through your grief.
Dear Vicki and family,
My thoughts and prayers are with you all through such a difficult time of great loss. Although I never had the honor of knowing Brad, the many tributes and testimonials to him let me know what an outstanding person he truly was, and just as his Mother is.
My deepest sympathy to you all. I hope your many treasured memories help keep him with you always.
Carole Harberson Gill
Susan, Zach, Zoe, Zia, and Zane: Sorry it has taken me so long to offer my condolences but I have been too shocked to put my feelings into words. I will always have fond memories of Brad. He was an awesome next-door neighbor and became a friend as well. He always had a smile on his face and a great southern sense of humor. He was always proud of his family and a lot of fun to hang out with whether at the neighborhood pool, or having cookouts, or mowing our yards at the same time, or just talking SEC football. My last conversation with Brad was during the UGA - Arkansas football game last year. We made a wager that if Arkansas won, you guys would come to visit us but if UGA came back to win, we would make another trip to Georgia. Brad was a truly great guy and I offer my deepest sympathies to you all.
May he rest in peace.
To all of the family and friends,
I hope you find strength in the memories of love and joy you shared with Brad. My heart goes out to you all.
My thoughts and prayers are with your family. I know you have lost a wonderful man whom will be missed tremendously by all. I pray God will grant you strength and understanding during this difficult time in your lives.
Just a terrific person! I loved working with Brad- always with a smile. As a prior entry stated: you cannot say a bad thing about him. My deepest sympathies to the family.
When I rejoined CA 2 years ago after 6 years with another company Brad was one of the first calls I made. When we met for lunch soon after it was as if I had just seen him the day before, not for the first time in years. Brad had that affect on everyone...once a friend always a friend. We laughed about the trials and tribulations of teenage kids and while it was easy for me to remember the Zkids I was amazed how much he remembered about my kids. Brad understood the importance of family in everyone's life. I will truly miss my friend and pray that his family will find comfort in God.
All my love, thoughts and prayers are with the Yurchuck family. Brad was a part of my "back in the day" life, he always had a special place in my heart. .He was an awesome friend~ always there when I needed him.
Thank you Yurchuck family for sharing Brad with us- yesterday was a wonderful snapshot of who Brad was...a smiling, joke-telling, proud dad and husband who never missed a beat. I got a kick of the Mr Lonely story and being a fellow Bulldog, we had to team up together against the Gators in the office. I will certainly miss the banter. By the turnout at the service yesterday, I hope you all could see how many people loved Brad. Sending all the angels your way
The Yurchuck Family,
I had the pleasure of working with Brad at CA a few years back. His love for his family was so evident then...and now reading these testimonies. Brad's smile was so genuine and he lit up the room. I pray that God will strengthen and comfort you always. God Bless You All.
The Yurchuck Family-
God bless you . My family's and my thoughts and prayers are with you. Brad was a long time friend , a worthy competitor when I was at IBM and instrumental to my returning to CA last year . I socialized with him in the pursuit of all things that swam in the sea, and boy did he love fishing! I hope you will reach out to God and his infinite wisdom and plan he has for all our lives, and know that that plan truly is beautiful and includes a great future. Never give up!
I will deeply miss Brad, I had the privilege to work for and with him almost 10 years ago when I began CA in the Alpharetta Office in Oct. 2000. He was so inspirational to me and my path at CA. My thoughts and Prayers go out to Susan, Zack, Zoe, Zia and Zane as well as my deepest sympathy. May peace be with You all and to our Families & Friends. Love, Erinn Jessen-Lincoln
Zach, Zane, Zoe and Zia...what a BEAUTIFUL tribute to your father yesterday! He is PROUD!
PARTY ON BULLDAWG
Unknown to the world a baby BullDawg was born, his name was JBradley…
Who would have thought that he would love those Georgia Bulldawgs so madly?
He became a DAWG followed and followed them with all his might…
Letting all of the SEC fans to know the Dawgs would WIN the fight.
With a chew in his lip and a beer in his hand, JBradley was a HUGE BullDAWG fan!
Although the competition was tough, he took the wins and losses without a fuss.
A fare weather fan, he was not....just like his friends and forever his fans we are not.
'' I got a hall pass'' he would say.....and then all of us BullDawgs would go out and play ?
Just like all of the other UGA Dawgs, God wanted them home,
So we know that JBradley is not a BullDawg alone.
JBradley, the biggest BullDawg we've known....
Don't stop smiling - Don't stop cheering- We've got your back!
We promise you a permanent hall pass so that you can sit back!
In love and memory to our wonderful friend Brad, please accept this UGA car flag in his memory. Fly it today in his honor and every time you think of and celebrate Brad, proudly insert it into your window. I know we will.
Cindy Stephens & Laura Folsom
Susan and family,
Sorry to hear about your loss. You are in our thoughts and prayers. Uncle Loren and Aunt Danielle
Zia... I never had a chance to meet your dad. However he raised a sweet, wonderful little girl. My heart is so heavy for you and your family. We will keep you in our prayers.
Dear Yurchuck Family,
I am truly sadden to hear the news of Brad's passing. He and I went to elementary school together and I must admit he was my first 'boyfriend'...in the 2nd grade! The thing I remember most about Brad was his great smile. With what I read, I'm sure Brad has been doing a lot of smiling over the past years as it seems he had a wonderful, loving family.
Susan, though we have never met, my heart breaks for you as I can only imagine what you must be going through at this time. I pray you find peace in our Lord and comfort in His arms. I pray your children will know their father has heard the words from our Lord and Savior..."Welcome home, my dear and faithful servant."
Peace be with you.
Dear Vicki and Family,
We are so sorry for your loss.
You and your family are in our thoughts and prayers. Please accept our deepest sympathy.
Dear Yurchuck Family,
My heart is saddened by the news of Brad's passing. We went to elementary school together and I have to admit, he was my frist 'boyfriend'...in the 2nd grade. What I remember most about Brad was his smile. I know that he has been smiling a lot over the past years as it sounds as though he had a wonderful life with a loving family. Susan, though we have never meet, my heart breaks for you, as I can only imagine what you must be going through at this time. I pray you will find peace in the Lord and your children will be comforted in knowing their father has heard the words "Welcome home; My good and faithful servant." Peace be with you.
Elementary School Classmate
I am sorry that I did not get the chance to know Brad but I know his sister Julie and niece Ginny and if he was anything like them, the world is a sader place without him. I send my condolences to all of the family and will continue my prayers for strength.
My thoughts and prayers are with you all. Sending you strength and lots of love.
Dear Yurchuck family I was saddened today to hear of Brads passing. I grew up with Brad and Julie here in Columbus. Brad and I worked briefly together here in Columbus when he was a consultant. I remeber with fondness Brad's infectious smile and unique sense of humor. I shall always remeber him like that. My prayers will be with your family.
I went to grade school with Brad. One of my fondest memories is from 6th grade. I had a terrible crush on Brad and we had made autograph books at the end of the year for our friends to sign since so many of us would be going to different schools the next year. A friend had made comment of me liking Brad in my book and he got wind of it. Next thing I knew, Brad had my book and I was chasing him the length of the school trying to get it back, mortified he'd read what my friend wrote. Well, he outran me and did indeed read the entry. He looked at me kind of funny and said something to the tune of "why would you like ME?" He then proceeded to write something silly in my book and handed it back to me. I've run into the book time and again over the years and it always makes me smile at the memory. I also remember how many girls were terribly disappointed when we found out Brad WASN'T going to be attending our jr. high.
From what I've read, it sounds like Brad had a wonderful life and family. I am sorry, especially to you children that your Dad was taken from you far too soon. I know things are too fresh now, but I hope sometime down the road you will be able to enjoy these memories people are leaving about your dad, husband, son and brother. My thoughts are with you all.
Brad was one of my closest friends and confidants. I admired and respected him for so many reasons. His love of family, the way he was revered professionally and his friendly, good ol' boy demeanor. He was a great mentor who left a mark on my life that will forever make me a better person.
Susan, our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family in this time of sorrow. You are in our prayers to continue lean on your faith and strength. God bless you and your family!
Dear Yurchuck family,
I was so very saddened today when I learned of Brad's passing. I have known the Yurchuck kids for a long time. I first met Joy in Jr. high school and then in high school I met Brad and Julie. All of them just as nice as they could be. Brad was the type of guy that always made you smile. He had an infectous laugh and again...smile. One could not help but be happy around him. The last time I saw Brad was in Athens at school. And he was still in a constant smile. We did not keep in touch as life tends to take folks in different directions but as soon as I read about Brad nothing but good thoughts and memories came back to me. I pray for God's peace to be with you and for you to rely on Him for comfort. May god bless you all during the very sad time.
Susan and Family,
I was saddened to hear the news of Brad's passing. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family in this time of mourning. I was blessed to know Brad. We were fellow bulldogs albeit 3 or so years apart. I worked with Brad at CA and he was always someone that I looked forward to working with or even just bumping into in the hall. He was a genuine person, always with a smile on his face. If you spent more than 20 minutes with him you knew how much he loved his family and that they were the center of his world.
He had a focus and determination professionally, but also an easy going likeable good nature about him that always put every one at ease. He touched so many people in his life cut way too short. He leaves an indelible impression of those of us fortunate enough to know him.
Amid the grief of losing a loved one, I pray that in time you are able to celebrate his life and his legacy. May God bless you and give you comfort through this difficult time.
There is nothing I could possibly say that could comfort you and the "Z"'s, but please know that my heart goes out to you. I will miss Brad being part of my world. Everyone that knew him was the better for his having been with us.
I always respected Brad for his humor, his dedication, his cussed, hard driving work ethic, "Good Enough" was never good enough for Brad. But most of all I always admired his deep and abiding love he had for his family. It showed in everything he did. It is Brad that is one of my best memories of being in Atlanta.
I will always smile when I think of Brad, and I will miss him.
May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.
Sunny, Happy Brad. That is how we will remember you. The time we spent together at CA left a life long impression and we will forever be grateful for the time we knew you. Our deepest sympathies to your family. The world is less brighter without you in it. Kasie Scott & Chris Palmer
"I met Brad in 2004 wen I joined CA. He had an immediate impact on my life due to his incredible sense of humor, dedication to his job, and obvious importance to his colleagues and customers. He always had a smile on his face and we could count on him to bring high energy and enthusiasm to the office regardless of the situation. A totally dedicated father and husband for sure which was always exhibited by his pictures and stories. Nothing meant more to Brad. I am honored to have known him."
It has been an honor and joy to work with Brad, he always had a
great sense if humor and would bring a smile to everyone's face. My deepest thoughts and prayers go to his family.
"Then I heard a voice from heaven say, "The righteous perish,
and no one ponders it in his heart;
devout men are taken away,
and no one understands
that the righteous are taken away
to be spared from evil. Isaiah 57:1
R.I.P. Bradley ...
I am so saddened to hear of Brad's passing. Brad and I went to elementary school together and then our paths crossed again in high shool when he was going to Columbus High. My first road trip to Athens was to visit Brad at UGA. He had a kind, beautiful, funny, sincere spirit and I was always lucky to call him my friend. We lost touch over the years until I ran into him again in Columbus a few years ago and I recognized him immediately by that award winning smile. It was so nice to see the man Brad had become. He talked about his family and you could see the love in his eyes when he spoke of his wife and kids. I don't think he ever met a stranger and my life is better, richer for having known him. My prayers go out to his family as they greive but hope they get comfort in these testimonies from all the people and lives he has touched. Godspeed my friend. Heaven will be a better place because you are there!
Those who worked with Brad knew him to be a consummate professional with great people skills, and a knack for winning. He made it all look so easy, and knew how to command attention from an audience, respect from his peers, and admiration from his friends. My deepest condolences to his family.
Vicki, It has been awhile since we've seen you but you are in our thoughts often.I am so sorry to hear that your son passed away. Our thoughts and prayers will continue to be with you and the rest of the family. Pat & Henry Barfield
Dear Yurchuck Family,
I met Brad about 7 years ago when he would visit our CA office, but started working with him virtually the past couple of years. He was always very kind and selfless in helping me. I felt he was the epitome of a Southern gentleman and I will miss talking with him.
I hope the knowledge that he was cared for by so many friends and co-workers will bring you comfort during these very difficult days. May God bless your family.
Jane Miller, Raleith, North Carolina
Susan, no words can express the sorrow we feel for you and the children. Your family remains in our thoughts and prayers. God be with you through this difficult time.
Susan - I am so sorry for your loss. Met Brad when CA acquired Platinum many years back. I was on the team that decided who would stay and who would go. Somehow Brad had been put on the 'cut' list but he sure didn't stay there. As soon as we met and talked with him we knew Jay Bradley was most definitely a keeper!
I always enjoyed working with Brad over the years, and I considered him a friend. I already miss him. My prayers are with you and your beautiful family.
We all go through pain and sorrow, but the presence of God, like a warm, comforting blanket, can shield us and protect us and allow the deep inner joy to surface, even in the most devastating circumstances. My thoughts and prayers are with you Susan and family, may you find peace amidst the storm. God Bless!
Ebony, Vonnisha and family
We have such great memories of Brad as a loving Husband and Father. It was very obvious to all that he adored his beautiful family. Susan and Brad, you guys are model parents. And you 4 "Z" kids, you are terrific! We love you all! May the Lord bring you comfort and strength today....and always.
It is a privledge to call Brad a friend. I have shared many laughs with him over the years and am thankful for that. God bless Brad, Susan, and their family.
I have had the privilege of working with Brad at CA. He had a genuine sincerity about him and I always enjoyed the chance to work with him. His smile and sense of humor were infectious. I enjoyed our conversations and jokes. He had a way of making you feel good even when you did not always enjoy the job. I will miss you Brad. The World has lost a special person but Heaven has gained a great one.
My sincere condolences to the Yurchuck family. I Pray that God will bless you during this time.
Brad will be missed. He loved his family and I feel like I know Susan and the Z Team because he spoke about them constantly. The world is better place because of Brad's time here.
Susan, Zach, Zoe, Zia, and Zane,
We are so sorry to hear about Brad. The Yurchuck family were our first friends when we moved to Georgia in 1996. Brad the Baseball Coach and Susan the Team Mom. You took us under your wing, always so generous and kind.
So many good memories baseball and halloween parties!! Brad was always one of the biggest kids at the party. Always making everyone laugh! His big smile and kind heart will be missed! Susan you and Brad created such a wonderful family. I know how much Brad adored you and the kids. Family was always first with Brad. I know his spirit will always be with you. We love all of you and our prayer is that God will bring you strength and comfort during your time of sorrow. We feel blessed to have known Brad.
I am saddened by the loss your family is experiencing. I graduated high school with Brad and Im a friend of Julies. I remember Brad as someone who was everyones friend. As I have read some of the entries I see that he is still the same.
I pray for peace for all of you in this painful time. I pray that God will be your strength when you dont think you can make it through. You all will continue to be in my prayers. I know Brad will be truly missed by all who know him.
Dear Yurchuck Family,
I am so sorry for your loss. Susan, I've known you and Zane for the last 3-4yrs, and had the pleasure of meeting Brad during Zane's Reptile party and other school events. It was so obvious. Brad loved you and his family. Please know that you all are not alone and God is with you and your family. (John 14:1) Do not let your hearts be troubled. Trust in God. He will give you the strength to get through this difficult time. Please do not hesitate to call on me or my family.Keeping you all in my prayers.
Brian, Jennifer, Brian, and Briana Bradley
Susan, family and friends...I know that I have written a serious note but let me tell you a little story....some of you may recall the 'senior skip day' at the lake a few years ago. Maybe not, but that's ok because that is what our memories are from. When Brad was leaving...(and he called Susan at least twice)...he came back to the house and said ''do you have a paper towel?'' I said ''sure.'' Well, he left his sunroof open on his black Jag and a bird decided to ''go'' on his arm rest. Brad said...''can you imagine the little guy, flying over and seeing the sun roof open and saying to himself....I think I can hit it, I think I can.'' So I guess the little birdy made is goal and hit the open sunroof and right on the arm rest!
You NEVER stopped making us laugh JBradley!!
I am a Customer of Brad's at SunTrust and I must say to have never met any of you in person I felt I knew you all. He was so proud of each and everyone of you! Brad was such and easy going person when negotiations got tough he would just smile stretch back, relax and put everyone in the room at ease. He was one of a kind and will be missed by all!! May God continue to Bless each of you as you go through this time and try to put your life back together without him.
I am so so sorry for your loss. I am praying for each of you that God will bring you comfort and healing. Know that you are in our thoughts and prayers.
Susan, and family, I am so sorry for each of you at this very challenging time. I had the pleasure of working with Brad, and he always had the ability to put a smile on everyone's face when he was in the room. Truly a genuine and wonderful person, who will be greatly missed. I feel fortunate to have had Brad share part of his life with me.
Susan, Brad was an amazing father and husband. He would always attend all school functions and come to the ball games to watch his girls cheer. He would be the first dad to jump up and do the cheers along with the girls. When I could not get my husband to wear, let alone buy a Knights Cheer Dad shirt, here comes Brad to the game proudly wearing his shirt. Ball games were alot of fun sitting with the two of you. Even though a few times we thought he would get thrown out for yelling at the refs. It was always fun and I will miss him! Tell Zia, Emily loves her and can't wait for her to get back to school.
I am so sorry Zia. I am praying for you. Love Jenna from Teal
Ill miss that smile, that heart..that beautiful person you were..
Brad, what an honor knowing and working with you the past 10 years. You will be truly missed. Rest in peace my friend
Your family is in our thoughts and prayers. We hope you find peace and love in the memories you cherish.
I have known Brad for 7 years working at CA. Over the past 15 months, I had the privilege to work closely with him and get to know him like a brother. And, if you know Brad, that is very easy to do. He is and always will one of my closest friends. I will never forget him. God Bless Brad!
Dear Yurchuck Family,
I had the pleasure of working with Brad while at CA from 1996-2003 and always enjoyed his laughter and passion in his job. He literally lite up a room as he entered, encouraging and infusing the task at hand with his passion and drive.
Please accept my most sincere sympathies at this most difficult time. Words are not enough to heal the pain but time, love and prayer will slowly bring comfort. May God put His loving and protective hand upon your family.
Brad was our friend, our neighbor our pool/camping/poker/all-around buddy and a great individual to have around. We will miss you.
Dennis, Shelley, Jeremy and Jackson Besco
I love you Ziaaa! (:
Susan and Family:
I was deeply saddened when I learned about Brad's passing. As you grieve know that Brad's memory is being honored by so many who were lucky enough to have known him. I worked with Brad for the past four years at CA and I always looked forward to running into him at the office. He always had a smile on his face. He will be greatly missed.
I was so blessed to work with Brad at CA, and he was nothing short of a true gentleman. One that always offered a genuine smile, a good laugh and truly loved his family. He spoke of you and the kids OFTEN, always filling me in on the latest adventures! As a new mom, he gave me lots of great advice and encouragement.
I know this time of separation is painful beyond words for you and the family. But please know that he is not far away and in time, and in God’s presence, you will see your wonderful Husband, Father, and friend again.
My prayers are with you now and always. I hope you find comfort during this painful time in your memories and the stories told here.
I truly enjoyed knowing Brad and I will miss him dearly. I always enjoyed Brad's sense of humor and was impressed with his leadership abilities. He had a way of making work fun and amazingly productive. It's funny how work goes by so much faster when you're having fun. I used to get a kick out of it when he would start off one of his conference calls by saying "Ok everybody, I am going to be brief today" and we all knew that just wasn't going to happen. God Bless...
To the Yurchuck family,
My mother and I had the pleasure of working with Brad at CA, we worked for American Express Travel. We will always remember Brad coming up to us and he always had a smile on his face. The way he spoke of his wife and children were so endearing. We enjoyed getting his letter at Christmas to see what was going on within his family. You will be missed.
JoAnn Baldwin Sabater & Dorothy Marasco (Marietta, Ga)
Although I only knew Brad professonally, he always impressed me as knowledegable, fun loving, a caring individual and really great guy. He will truly be missed. My heart goes out to his family, friends and co-workers as they deal with this tragic loss.
Dearest Yurchuk Family-I was so very saddened to learn of Brad's passing last evening. My heart breaks for all of you and prayers are lifted to God so that you all may feel HIS abiding peace, comfort and strength at this time. Many other prayer warriors are praying for you, too.
May God wrap you all up in his arms and keep you all so very close to HIM.
I Thessalonians 4:13-18
I remember Brad when he was a young 16 and 17 year old working for the Steak and Ale restaurant and he became a dear friend that would leave a lasting impression. I will always have those wonderful memories. May God bless you and give you comfort through this difficult time.
Our thoughts and prayers go out to the Yurchuck family.
"Little Brad" and I worked together at Steak and Ale Restaurant in Columbus, GA for many years, many years ago. He was a great person and dedicated and loyal employee. We had many laughs and good times at the restaurant and those memories will be cherished. I saw him at a wedding in Columbus a few years ago and he was so proud of his beautiful family. To his family, you are all in my thoughts and prayers and I hope you find comfort in your faith at this difficult time. With love and respect,
Brad was one of first people I met at CA and I knew immediately I had a friend and ally in him. Maybe because I am a fellow Bulldog, but he was unselfish with his time and always provided sage advice as I navigated through the technical aspects of the organization. He was always quick with a joke or to share a recent family story that helped maintain levity around the office. One of my fondest memories of my time at CA and with Brad was our group fishing trip to Orange Beach, AL. The lot of us were a fraternity of sorts and as usual, Brad had us laughing the entire time. I pray that the good memories will provide some strength for your family during this sad time. Brad will be sorely missed.
I have the pleasure of being one of Brad's customers, and there are few people in the business world that can garner the love, appreciation, trust, and respect that has been expressed by all of his friends, family, and business associates. Brad wasn't just a "vendor", he was a friend, and my heart is so sad to think that he is gone from this world, and gone much too soon. With a ready smile, a hearty laugh, and his gracious, big-hearted personality, he made doing business a pleasure. Brad, you were a fine man, and will be missed by all who knew you. My heartfelt sympathies, thoughts, and prayers go to all the Yurchuck family and Brad's work family at CA. Blessings and peace...
Words cannot express how sorry I am to hear of your family's loss. Please know you and the children are in my thoughts and prayers.
Susan & Family,
I worked with Brad the last four years at CA and the day's when I came into the office the one person I was hoping would be there was Brad. He would always brighten up a bad day and put a smile on your face. There would not be a conversation with him without Brad bring up the family and kids, they were everything to him. We will all miss Brad and the joy and laughter he bought to all of us.
Dear Yurchuck Family,
It is with profound sadness that I read about Brad's passing. I have known Brad for more years than I can count. Our moms were friends when we were young and we went to high school together. We also spent time working together at Steak and Ale. I never knew the grown up Brad, but did know the young man. He was always quick to laugh and almost always mischievious. I can even now remember his big smile. My prayer would be that God's peace would rain down on all of you in the coming days and weeks. May you draw strength from the love of our heavenly Father. You will be in my prayers.
Susan and Family, I am so sadden by this news. Please know our family will be keeping you in prayer. If there is anything I can do to help please hollar. I will miss seeing him at the pool and flashing that smile inquiring about "his girl Paige". Brad was so proud of his family and charmed all he met. Brad... You are very missed!!!!
My family is better for knowing the Yurchucks. We have so many fond memories of are times together. We will cherish those memories and smile knowing that Brad's loving dedication to his family and friends was often the reason for those good times. Susan, Zach, Zoe, Zia and Zane...your dad was and remains a wonderful man who I am honored to have come to know. Please know he is at rest and we forever love his angels here on earth. God bless the Yurchucks.
Dear Yurchuck Family:
There is a saying that "The measure of a man is one who lends a hand". Working with and knowing your father for 4 years, he was always there to lend a hand. He was always in an unselfish giving spirit. He gave daily to those he worked with by helping any way possible. He gave to the customers he served with integrity and sincerity. He gave the world 4 children that he was immensely proud of. Even though a lot of us have never met you, we feel like we know you just by the proud stories he would tell us about each of you; Zach with the jeep, Zane with the motorcycle, Zoe and Zia with cheerleading and gymnastics just to name a few. Brad was full of love and it showed everyday of his life. Sometimes we do not understand why things happen. Sometimes it just does not seem fair. Things do happen for a reason. We have to trust God and keep the faith.
I define a man as someone who leads courageously, rejects passivity, and holds out for God's reward. Your father lived a life that served as the model for a man; always courageous, never passive, never selfish. Be proud of him, just as he was proud of you. Don't let moments of weakness prevail; be strong-stay strong, but be humble.
Brad was one of those very special people that come along every so often in life. I had the pleasure of working with him for a few years and he always provided such levity and laughter. He had a habit of simply lighting up a room. Brad was so very proud of his family. Time and again he shared stories and pictures of vacations and activities with you, Susan, and the kids. He will be sorely missed. I will always remember him for the smile that was everywhere he went. May God bless you and keep you during this very difficult time.
My thoughts and Prayers go out to the Yurchuck Family. Brad will be deeply missed. He was the heart and soul of the CA Office and without him leaves a huge hole. I was so fortunate to know and work with Brad for the past 10 years. He was like a big brother to me at CA. I will miss his infectious smile and friendship.
Vicki, Susan, Zach, Zoe, Zia & Zane: It is quite evident that Brad left his 'mark' all over this country, with the multitude of friends he made. There's nothing we could add to what has already been said about Brad, simply because we were not blessed to have known him. I met you all one time, while picking up Vicki from your beautiful home, when I made a trip to Woodstock. I can honestly say, the words of tribute to Brad & your family,exemplify the person his mom is. Our love for Vicki overflows to you all. Our deepest condolences are with you; our prayers are offered up daily for each of you. We are left with the desire to have known him, but feel blessed to know Vicki. Her friendship to us, is truly like Brad's was to his friends. He learned from the best. Our love to you all. Libby & Terry Jones
To Susan & family:
I will miss Brad's wonderful smile each time I saw him in the office and his good nature. I will miss too the annual family newsletter which he delivered with such pride and I might add that it was the only one of its kind around the office. I met the family back in the days when the company held its summer picnics and holiday dinners.
I remembered how proud he was when he received his Rolex watch for his years of service with CA...
My deepest sympathy to the family - Brad will be missed by all and may he rest in peace.
Susan, Zach,Zoe,Zia and Zane
Our thoughts and prayers go out to all of you! We are so sadden by your loss. We remember your dad always being at every Cheerleading competition always supporting you!!! So much love was in his eyes. Also carring Zane on his shoulders on those long days when he was just to tired to walk. His strength and love will grow though each and every one of you!!!!
We love you all Kami Christian and Keaton Taylor
Susan, Zach, Zoe, Zia, and Zane-
Words cannot express how absolutely stunned and saddened I am about this news. It has brought back a flood of wonderful memories of the time we shared as next door neighbors. For 6 years, our kids grew up together, we spent weekends hanging out, eating good, drinking good, helping each other with yard work, and laughing. All those Georgia games, yelling at the TV, joy one minute and exasperation the next. I remember the Halloweens- trick' r treating was never so fun as it was with you guys and our kids. Did we ever need an excuse to party? Over those years, we spent as much time in your house as our own. My parents, my children, especially Michael, are just devastated. I am so sorry for you all. Brad was a good man. Simply put, life isn't fair. You are in my thoughts and my prayers. I wish I could scoop you all up in my arms and make this go away...take us all back to better days.
Love to you all,
I am priveledged to have known Brad during our teenage years. Baseball, football, and and hanging out. Although I had not seen him in almost 15 years, my memories of growing up will always include him. As I told my father about Brad's passing, he told me a story of Brad that says it all. While 15 years old, my father coached Brad in baseball. After a game one day, a small child was being picked on by some older kids at the ballpark. Seeing this, Brad made his way over to the group and confronted the older kids. Needless to say, the bullies left and Brad walked the child back to his parents. My Dad witnessed this and spoke to Brad about it. Out of all the memories dealing with sports, this one stands out for my Dad. He said he always remember Brad and how caring he was. Thats the way I will remember as well! Brad, you are missed. God bless and Godspeed!
We were so sorry to hear of your loss. The thoughts of many are with you at this time of sorrow.
My thoughts an prayers go out to my beautiful friend Suzie and her family. Suzie... my prayers of strength for you from the deepest part of my heart.
Although I left CA in 2004, I enjoyed working remotely with Brad from North Carolina for several years. My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.
Sometimes life just doesn't seem fair and this is one of those times. I will never forget working with Brad at CA for 6 years. Brad always had a smile and made work enjoyable and interesting for all. Rest in Peace my friend.
I don't personally know this family, but know of them through the cheerleading world. My thoughts and prayers are with you all, and know that he will now be your angel watching over all of you at all times.
Susan, Zack, Zoe, Zia, Zane, Vicki (my dear friend and sister), Joy, Julie and families, we wish to extend our heart felt sympathy to each one of you. In the days ahead our prayer is that God's loving grace will comfort you. Time will ease the pain you feel at this time but missing the Brad that we all know so well will never go away. Hold close all the wonderful memories we all have in our hearts and smile just as big as Brad's beautiful smile that brightened up a room like the sunshine outside. We love you all so very much and share in your loss. See you soon.
Susan, Zach, Zoe, Zia and Zane..........Where to begin? What to say? My heart breaks for your loss. Our families had so much fun together, the cruise, Six Flags, stunting in the pool, barbeques, cheer competitions. We all have many wonderful memories. Brad was a wonderful husband and father. He was funny, he embraced life. Please know that Dylan, Chelsea and I will walk through this journey with you. We can help each other get through the loss of a husband and father. Remember the good times, let those memories carry you through. Lean on the Lord, even though you don't understand why this happened, know that The Lord has a plan for you, have the faith to believe that even though you can't see the plan. We love you dearly and will pray for you continously. Love, Teresa, Dylan and Chelsea Downey
Susan and family, I am so sad to hear of this terrible loss. Brad was an amazing person and I am thankful I had the pleasure to know him. He loved you all so much, you were the joy in his life.
My family first meet Brad and Susan when my son, Michael and Zach played ball together. If I can remember correctly the boys were all of 4 or 5. Brad was the first baseball coach Mike ever had and he taught Mike all there was to know about baseball and being a good sport. My daughter Kristi and Zoey had a wonderful time playing in the dirt and cheering on their big brothers as they got up to bat. Brad and Susan will always be a part of my families memories.
My thought and prayers go out to Susan and the children. Thank you for all you and Brad have done for my family.
My heart is so sad for you. I am praying for you and your whole family and I know your Dad is with Jesus now.
Your friend, Mathew Meyer
I met Brad many years ago it was around Christmas and we talked quite a bit and soon there after I received his Family newletter - and annually I would periodically get a new volume. What a joy to see him and his family interact. What a wonderful man - who always had a smile on his face and a nice word.
Our family prayers go out to the entire family.
Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Love Jim & Joyce (Casoria) Rose
I first got to know Brad about 20 years ago, just shortly after he and Susan married. We were both working at CCIS in Grand Prairie and quickly became good friends. I remember being at the hospital when their first "Z" child Zach was born. They were both quite young, but very proud parents. It became evident right away that Brad was a simply a natural loving father and devoted husband, just a few of the many qualities I admired in this wonderful man. Brad's sincere and warm personality always made every gathering all the more special. He and I spent some time together on several
hunting trips with other friends and I have many fond memories of those trips that I'll always carry with me. His stories told around the campfire in his ol familiar Georgia drawl were always priceless and kept us rolling in laughter. I can still hear his voice as clearly as if we spoke today and I pray as time passes, I will never forget the sound as it brings me comfort just to hear it.
Susan, your husband and Zach, Zoe, Zia and Zane your daddy was simply one of the finest men I have ever had the pleasure of knowing. I am a much richer person for having known Brad
and will always be reminded of his love and devotion to you all. I pray until we are all together again with Brad that the love of Jesus Christ will sustain you and bring you comfort during this difficult time.
Love you all
Rodger & Sharon Barton
Susan, Zach, Zoe, Zia and Zane,
Brad spoke of each of you with such pride and joy. Sharing stories about your accomplishments truly brought a sparkle to his eyes. Zach and Zoe were little when Brad and I first met. In between visiting customers (where Brad could transform a dull technology demo into an hour of humorous entertainment) he would talk about how blessed he was with an incredible family - always praising Susan as a wife and mother.
Brad was smart, patient, and generous. He was a loyal friend who cared about others and truly took the time to listen and get to know those around him. He touched so many people and we are better for having known him. He lives on in each of you. You are a beautiful tribute to his life. My deepest sympathy on the loss of your husband and dad. My prayers are with you all.
Rest in peace, Brad.
My brother is the best big brother ever ever ever. He taught me to walk. Walked me to school. Walked me down the aisle. Walked me through parenting my daughter. Made me walk again after my stroke. How am I ever going to walk without him.
Brad, I never got a chance to say, "Thank You". So...
Thank you for showing me how someone can make a friend with everyone they meet and never have an enemy.
Thank you for showing me how to make people laugh and smile when you walk in a room.
Thank you for showing me how to be a good business partner to my customers.
Thank you for teaching my son and me about "Boys Night Out" where we could burp, poot and get real loud.
Thank you for showing me how dedication to the family is so rewarding.
Thank you for showing me humbleness.
Thank you for being such a great and loyal friend.
But most of all, thank you for showing me what a great father and husband you were. It has helped me be a better husband and father to my wife and boys.
I will miss all the great times we had together in and out of work. I feel so blessed to have had those times.
We will truly miss our Fishing Buddy; those offshore trips in the Gulf and a few GA-FL weekends created fond memories of Brad which will last a lifetime. I know he would want us all to celebrate the great moments we shared, as Brad truly was the salt of the earth. Our thoughts and prayers for his family during this time and beyond…“Trust in the Lord with all your heart, and lean not on your own understanding” - Proverbs 3:5
My thoughts and prayers are with you all.
Just Know that everyone's prayers for you will keep you strong.
I wish to express heartfelt condolences from our family to yours. Our thoughts and prayers are with you.
I had a virtual acquaintance with Brad, Sue and their four children through his loving mother, Vicki. Vicki and I were co-workers and shared many intimate stories about our family members. Since 1998, the Yurchucks have been a part of my life, and it hurts me to know that a fine son, father and husband is no longer with us...physically, but spiritually, he will always be with us. My family and I are praying that you will have God's peace soon.
Susan, Zach, Zoe, Zia and Zane ~ It is with an extremely heavy heart that I am writing to you. Even though we didn't live close to you, the times we've spent together are unforgetable! Who else besides Scott & I knew how to run a house with 4 Yurchuck children? Brad & Susan! I wish I had a "magic wand" to ease the pain in your hearts. Please know that I am sending our thoughts and prayers to be with all of you through this most difficult time. We will always be here for you ~ we are just 1 state away! All our love, Scott, Karen, Kyle, Alison, Laurie & Lindsay
Brad's infectious laugh and quick wit are something I will never forget. He was such a wonderful father, husband and friend. His knowledge of GA Football and competition cheerleading was amazing!
I will miss you Brad! I love you Yurchuck family and will always be there for you.
Brad, you were loved by so many people and you loved so many people. I remember the good times we had at your house. This breaks my heart. You were always there for Becca and Ashley. Becca loved you very much and always wanted to go to the Yurchucks house. We will miss you lots Brad. Susan he loved you and if we can do anything for you or the kids please let me know. Love you guys. Anytime he would see Becca or I he would ask us how we were doing and if we were holding up ok - he was always thinking of others. You are in my thoughts and prayers.
Lorri Marie Coker Lesperance
Dear Yurchuck family,
I am soo sorry for your loss. I know Zoe and she is an amazing girl with an amazing spirit and an amazing heart. I know that you guys will pull through because of your amazing family structure. Please stay strong. Please stay with Christ. You always have people here to support you and to love you.
Sincerly, Iyabo Erinkitola
I offer my deepest heart felt condolences, Brad will be missed greatly! Brad you were such a great example for other fathers and hussbands to follow. my prayers go out to Susan and the kids in this trying time.
My thoughts and prayers are with your family. I had the pleasure of working with Brad when I started at CA. He was always willing to help or sit down with me to review solutions, discuss opportunities, etc... I moved away from Atlanta but would run into Brad at various CA Events througout the years. He would always go out of his way to talk to me and catch up (he was genuine). God Bless you all.
I had the pleasure of meeting Brad and the Yurchuck family 5 years ago with my first introduction to cheerleading. Zia and Lexie were on the same team and we all had a good many laughs that year sometimes watching our little ones fly through the air or sometimes just never quite making it up. 7th place seemed like a win!! What will I miss about Brad? Hanging out when it was late at a competition smooshed in front of a tiny TV trying to catch a glimpse of a football game and laying on the floor just talking about whatever comes up after 9 hours at a cheerleading competition. Usually how great our kids were and that we just assumed they would bring home a National Championship after the weekend was finally over!!! :) Rest in Peace Brad. You more than anyone know what capable hands your kids are in with Susan at the helm!
My deepest condolences and prayers to Brad's family. It was a pleasure working with him. He be will be greatly missed.
Susan, Zach, Zoe, Zia, and Zane, you all are in our thoughts and prayers. May the love of friends and family carry you through your grief. God Bless you all, The Irtenkauf Family
Our thoughts and prayers are with your family in this time of grief. May your memories bring you comfort. God Bless your family!
Susan and the Yurchuck family,
My heart cries out for you all. A truly wonderful man was lost on Sunday. I had the pleasure of working with Brad at CA for 4 plus years and getting to know how much he truly loved his family.. It were the days of coming into the office and talking about cheerleading as I have 3 cheerleaders as well. We would compare tumbling notes.. marycate just got her two to a layout.. well Zoe has her full.. I am sure people thought we were idots talking about cheerleading everytime we crossed paths. I will take his memory with me for where ever I go.. I so very sorry for your loss..
Hey Yurchuck family,
We love everyone of y'all. Stay strong through this and if you need anything at all, call us. God will get you through this, stay faithful.
I am so sad to hear about the loss of Brad. I remember working for him early in my career at CA...he was a great leader! He always made you smile and demonstrated the importance of family to those around him. He will truly be missed. To his famiy, you are in my thoughts and prayers. May God bless you during this very difficult time.
Susan, Zach, Zoe, Zia and Zane
the Kurz family loves your family so much. We loved Brad and were so lucky to have him in our lives. We are here for you for as long as you need anything.
Susan and Family,
I would like to express my deepest sympathies and condolences for your loss. Knowing and working with Brad for the past 15 years was a wonderful experience. His commitment to his family and his job were deeply admirable. Brad always made me laugh, especially if things were getting difficult with a client, and his experience and advice were always valuable. My thoughts and prayers are will you all.
It is with a very heavy heart that I write this note. Brad was one in a million and always treated people with kindness and respect. I feel so lucky to have known and worked with him during my time at CA.
He loved his family so much, may we all take the time to support them as they deal with this tragedy.
~ Robert Schimenti, Marietta, Georgia
Dear Yurchuck Family, my heart hurts for all of you. I had the pleasure of working with and learning from Brad when I worked for CA in Atlanta. His smile and good nature will always be with me. God Bless your family.
I am so sorry for your loss and I just wanted to let you know that my thoughts and prayers are with you and the kids.
Brad was such a great person, great friend, and great neighbor! Thanks for always being there for Chris and Amber. They have always loved being around you and your family. You will truely be missed.
Susan, If you or the kids ever need anything, i am only a minute away.
We love you all!
Dear Susan, Zach, Zoe, Zia, and Zane,
May the Peace of the Lord be with you all and your faith bring you comfort knowing Brad is in the loving arms of the Father. We love you!
The Swantek Family
Susan, Zach, Zoe, Zia, & Zane,
No words could express my deepest sympathy for the loss of such a great man. My heart goes out to you. You and your family are in my thoughts and prayers.
I met Brad, Susan and their kids for the first and only time last Thanksgiving Day when they graciously shared this special time of year with me. Brad had just finished deep frying a turkey – the centerpiece of our wonderful dinner – when I arrived. We all spent the next several hours that evening enjoying great conversation and one another’s company. In the brief time I was lucky enough to share time with and get to know Brad, it was very evident to me he was a very loving husband, father, son, brother – and friend. He will truly be missed. My thoughts and prayers go out to all those who knew and loved this fine gentleman.
To the Yurchuck Family,
You are in my prayers during this difficult time. I will be thinking of you and hope that your family's love will continue to give you strength.
Mrs. Gina Baldwin
AIM Teacher, Johnston Elementary
My thoughts and prayers are with your family. I could always count on you to answer my mainframe questions without hesitation and you always made work FUN. Some of my best times at CA were spent with you in Biloxi, CA World on on the Baltic Cruise where I finally got to meet Susan. You were always talking about her and your children so I felt like I knew each of them intimately. Whether you were riding motorcross, traveling to SD on summer vacation, or packing up everyone for a cheer competition you were excited about the time you were going to spend with your family. I loved everything about you except your preference for the Georgia DAWGS and that was even tolerable in November at the annual TSYS/CA Tailgate. Woof Woof my friend.
My thoughts and prayers are with you all.
There are few people that leave their mark on family/friends in the WWBD (What Would Brad Do?) way. It’s not fair and it just totally sucks that he’s gone, but I can only imagine he’d want his family and friends to focus on fond memories, raise a toast in his honor and continue to make him proud – the latter being an easy task for the awesome Z kids!
I, too, had the privilege of working with Brad at CA. During my 1st week, he kindly reached out and offered to give me the happy hour (shocker!) version of the CA Survival Guide. There was nothing in this for him (other than a beer); he was all about sincerely helping and supporting others – an admiral gift he unselfishly shared.
It’s been said that once you’ve done what you were meant to do, it’s ok to go. Surely Brad had an incomplete bucket list, but other than breaking hearts for leaving too soon and too suddenly, he should harbor no regrets in heaven – the comments in this guest book say it all.
My deepest sympathy and prayers go out to the Yurchuck family.
It is with a very heavy heart that I write this note. Brad was one is the million and always treated people with kindness and respect. I feel so lucky to have known and worked with him during my time at CA.
He loved this family so much, may we all take the time to support them as they deal with this tragedy.
To Susan and the entire Yurchuck family, you are in my thoughts and prayers. Brad was my mentor early in my career and my friend for the past 13 years. I learned a lot from him both professionally and personally. I know he loved his family and adored his children because he always talked about you. I will miss my friend but I will always cherish the good times we shared together. May God be with you all.
Through the years I have worked with Brad in three separate companies spanning over 20 years. I have Brad to thank for bringing me into CA and working with him for the past 11+ years. Brad has not only been a coworker, but was a close personal friend. I had the pleaser of seeing Zack a few hours after entering this world and seeing the joy that Brad had becoming a father. I saw this joy every time Brad talked about all of his children. Lori and I loved when we had the opportunity to spend time with Brad and Susan. I am sure they got tired of hearing Brad and I talk about all the “old times”, but that is what boys will do. Brad had the ability to walk into a room and start up a conversation that everyone could join into. The times in past that I was able to be with Brad on hunting and camping trips that include some other close friends of Brad, are memories that will be cherished for the rest of my life. May God bless this great family. Brad you are loved and will be missed, God's speed.
I am so very sorry to hear the sad and devastating news. Please know that my heart and prayers go to you and all your family, and I wish I could help ease the pain I know you are feeling.

My deepest sympathy to your family as you deal with the loss of such a wonderful person. I worked with Brad and he was always a kind, considerate and enjoyable person to be around.
Keota Golden (Atlanta, GA)
You are in my thoughts and prayers.
Brad, you will be sorely missed by all. People like you make our world fun. Thanks for that, and for your graciousness over the past 7 years we’ve worked together.
Rest in peace, brother.
It is with a very heavy heart that I write this note. Brad was one is the million and always treated people with kindness and respect. I feel so lucky to have known and worked with him during my time at CA.
He loved this family so much, may we all take the time to support them as they deal with this tragedy.
Zane, Ziah, Zoe, and Zachary, I just wanted to let you know that I am thinking of you and your family. You will be in my thoughts and prayers. I did not know your dad, but to have such wonderful children he had to be a really good man. Let me know if I can do anything for you.
Nurse Kathy from Johnston
Susan and family, my heart breaks for all of you and the loss that you've experienced. You are in my thoughts and prayers.
Susan and Family,
Words cannot describe how sad I am for your loss. I’ve had the privilege of knowing Brad for 5 years. He was a good friend. Brad always wore a smile and was willing to go the extra mile to help anyone. I have many fond memories of playing pool, eating very hot wings, laughing, and talking about life. He was also very proud of his family. My prayers are with you all during this difficult time.
Brad was an AWESOME father, husband and friend. He is easily one of the best men we have ever met. Introduced my family to low country boils, pork rinds and UGA. He will sorely be missed but will definately never be forgotten. The wonderful kids that Brad and Susan have raised is a true testament to the wonderful person he truely is. We love you.
Chase, Hilarie, Gage and Hailey Christensen
I have fond memories from the years we worked together. It was always a pleasure to have Brad's company while at work or enjoying time at a social event. He will be greatly missed. May God bless his family.
Rod Hovater (Roswell, GA)
I have known Brad for over 9 years and not only am I deeply saddened by the loss Susan and the kids must experience of losing a husband and a father, I have lost a friend who definitely touched many of his friends lives. Over the years when we spoke and saw each other, we always spoke of our wives and our children. Brad had such an incredible sensitivity to what really mattered in life and always remembered even the smallest detail of his friend's lives. I will truly miss him as a friend and a mentor.
Susan, as you know the Gasters all have a unique relationship with Brad, on one hand fierce but fun Gator/Dawg rivals, on the other hand, always loyal friends and teammates. Our thoughts and prayers go out to you and the Z team, simply said, Brad will be surely missed.
Susan, with my deepest regrets and sympathy for you and the family, I'm so sorry. I knew Brad for 15+ years professionally and personally. He made a difference in my life and those around him. He had a knack for always making the best of situations and encouraging those around him to do the same. A wonderful friend, colleague and very proud father. He was so proud of his kids and their accomplishments. Even though I moved from Atlanta 9 years ago, we stayed in touch and I always looked forward to the "Yurchuck Times" every holiday. Katherine and I will keep you and the family in our thoughts and prayers. A true friend whose time on this earth was way too short. He will be so missed!
I am so deeply saddened by the loss of Brad. I will always remember his laugh, smile, and how he could light up a room by just being there. We always looked forward to cheer competition in Dallas so we could catch up with everyone. You are in our hearts and prayers.
Knowing and working with Brad for the past 5 years has truly been a blessing. Seeing a man that was so proud of his family and career always brought a smile to my face. I always knew I could count on a laugh or some witty conversation that made Brad one of those people you just had to get to know. Whether talking about his kids accomplishments or the GA Bulldawgs, there was always a sparkle in his eye that made a lasting impression. Brad, we love you and miss you.
Susan, Zack, Zoe, Zea, Zane, family and friends...where does one begin? I worked with Brad for 5 years. I had the pleasure of HIM being my friend. I had the pleasure to spend some time and share some stories with Susan as well. What a beautiful person inside and out! Always willing to help...his slow southern ways made customers love him too. All I can tell you is how much you were all loved, how he beamed from ear to ear when Zack was going to UGA, Zea and Zoey and their cheerleading, gymnastics and school accomplishments. Oh, and all of the pictures of the bugs Brad took in South Africa to bring back for Zane! He tried to get me to catch a green tree frog for him one time but I thought it was poinsonous! He will be sorely missed but with the fondess memories...what a loss this world will have but Heaven will gain! Love, thoughts and prayers...Cindy Stephens
Through our childern's activities and school functions I met Brad. It was a pleasure to know him. He was the very proud dad of 4 beautiful and talented childern. He will be missed. My continued thoughts and prayers are with Susan and the kids. I pray that your faith, your family and your friends continue to provide you strength and comfort durning this time.
I am proud to say I had the pleasure of working on the same team as Brad. He was always ready to offer advice, go out of his way to help, and best of all, make me laugh. When I think of Brad, I think of his smile and his love of football, even if it was the Dawgs. He will truly be missed. You are all in my prayers.
Please accept my deepest sympathies.
I worked with and for Brad these past 10+ years. I'll miss his smile and laugh the most. He always brought a great deal of excitement to the workplace. He loved his family and was a great friend to me. God Bless..
I had the pleasure of working with Brad for nearly 10 years at CA and Brad, you will truly be missed! Thank you Brad for always being a consumate professional and truly thoughtful human being. My deepest condolences to the Yurchuck family. I feel like I know you all from the warm and wonderful stories Brad would share of your wonderful accomplishments. My thoughts and prayers are with you during this time.
My deepest sympathies to all of Brad’s family and especially all the “Z” kids. He was always a proud parent, and the only thing he spoke of more than his work at CA was his family. I will certainly carry many great memories of the time I spent working closely with Brad, and miss the opportunity to do so again.
My thoughts and prayers are with your family.
Our thoughts and prayers are with you all. May God keep you and give you peace.
Brad, I will remember your big heart and equally big smile. Your love for your family was such a big part of your life which is what I admired about you most. I will miss you and your family will be in my prayers.
I have worked with Brad since he came to CA. He was always so proud of his family and loved you very much. I will miss his funny ways We will miss your Christmas News Letters. We waited each year to find out about the kids. God Bless you and your family during this truly hard time. I will be praying for you.
Susan, you and your children won't be forgotten during this time..I'm lifting all of you up in prayer....as you walk through this valley of death's shadow...Susan Duncan
I had the great fortune of being a colleague and, more importantly, friend of Brad's. I'll never forget the day we (CA) were meeting with the employees of recently acquired Legent in Atlanta. Mike Maloney came to me and said "we have misinterpreted the job title of a really special guy that you need to meet RIGHT NOW". Thanks Mike, you were so right. Brad was cordial, highly competent, open and ready to give me and CA a chance. He made a difference for everyone he intersected with whether colleague or customer; without a doubt he made CA a better place.
More importantly, he became a valued friend. As the years have passed, a note or call with Brad always lifted my day. And while I enjoyed a little Dawg/Gator banter, I really looked forward to hear about his family and relished the annual "Z-Team" update, a wonderful testament to Susan, Brad and their family. I'm a better person for having known "Bulldog Brad" and will always miss him. To Susan and the children; Elise, Jenni, Jake and I pray that Jesus' love and mercy will comfort and sustain you in your loss.
Susan and Family, I am so sorry for your loss of Brad. It is hard to describe how sad I am and my deepest thoughts and prayers are with you all during this difficult time. I worked with Brad for 13 years and his genuine friendship meant the world to me. I could always count on Brad to brighten my day. Brad was so proud of his family. Deana and I always looked forward to the â€œYurchuck Updatesâ€ each year at Christmas so we could hear about everyone's accomplishments and hobbies. May your memories bring you comfort in the days ahead. I will miss Brad very much.
I am so deeply saddened by the loss of Brad. I had the true pleasure of working with him for four years in Atlanta. I will never forget Brad’s constant southern smile and his willingness to literally give you the shirt of his back if you needed it. Brad looked for and found the best in people, would help turn a negative person positive, and was one person who could always bring everyone together. On top of all of the tremendous qualities that made him an exceptional person and friend, Brad was also respected professionally by his colleagues and his customers alike. However above anything else, it was abundantly clear that Brad loved his family and was SO proud…He was definitely not shy about it and shared that pride often - with all of us. You all will remain in my thoughts and my prayers. I will miss him.
May your hearts soon be filled with wonderful memories of joyful times together as you celebrate a life well lived.
I had the pleasure of working with Brad for 10+years. He was an ansome husband, awesome dad and awesome co-worker. His only problem was his infatuation with the bulldogs. Ha ha. He was a gentleman in every way, a friend in every way and his love for his family showed in every thing he did. We will miss you Brad. Reast in peace. We pray for your family and hope they will get through this.....GRIP.
Brad was a wonderful person, husband, father, co-worker, and friend. I worked with brad for 11+ years and dont think I can think I can say a bad thing about him. Besides being a bulldog fan...He Loved his family, loved his football team and loved CA. I cant express how much we will miss him and feel for his family. Rest in peace my FRIEND.

Brad was very proud of his family and often shared stories of the accomplishments of his children. I understand this is a very difficult time for the family and my thoughts and prayers are with you. Please remember that Brad was loved at work and spoke of you often. I will miss him.
Brad, You will be missed by your family, and your whole community. Your mark on earth was far too short. Your family remains in our thoughts and prayers.
