Not sure what to say?

I knew Brad from the time I was just a rookie
MPD officer. A few years older, he was always nice and very supportive to me.
I remember him fondly as the sort of
senior officer anybody
would be glad to have.

I regret that I was unable to attend the services.
Sorry for his loss. I first met Gene when he was Scoutmaster of one of the two Chickasaw Council troops that went to the 1981 National Scout Jamboree at Fort A .P. Hill. My sons attended with him.
His Scouting enthusiasm was without equal.

Patsy and Family: Just heard of Gene's passing. He was the "glue" that held the FOHBC together during some of its roughest times. He was personally very kind to me during my stint as Southern Region editor.

He served our (and his) hobby long and well and he will be missed. Please accept my sincere condolences.

I am very sad to hear the news of Mr. Gene's passing. He and his wife went to high school with my mother. I have been blessed to be able to attend class reunions and other Humes get togethers with my mother and get to know Mr. Gene and Ms. Patsy along with many other of mom's classmates from Humes. I adore Mr. Gene and his wife Ms. Patsy. They are the perfect picture of family and whenever i was around them, i would think about how i wished i could have grown up with them back in the...

Patsy. So sorry to hear of Gene's passing. Another Tiger gone to be with the Lord.

I am saddened to hear of the passing of Bro. Gene. I have known him for 45 years through our Bottle Hobby. He was a man of great character and will be sorely missed. The Federation of Historical Bottle Collectors are indebted to him for his leadership, guidance and hard work. My joy is in knowing Gene was a true Christian and I one day will join him in heaven. God Bless the Bradberry family at this time and especially Mrs. Bradberry. Rev. 14:13, "And I heard a voice from Heaven saying...
