Brad Coverdell left us suddenly and much too soon on March 10, 2011 while traveling for business in Cranberry Township, Pennsylvania.
He was born to Robert and Jo Ann (Hill) Coverdell on July 22, 1962 in Kalispell, Montana. Brad spent his childhood in Columbia Falls, MT where he developed a passion for skiing on Big Mountain. His family moved to Spokane, WA where he attended Rogers High School and graduated with a degree in Mechanical Engineering from Gonzaga University (GO ZAGS!). When in high school he met the LOVE of his life, Aileen. We moved to Richland to begin our lives together. Brad worked for ARES Corporation as a Senior Engineer. During this time, a wonderful event happened when Gregory Coverdell came into our life. Brad was a good father being involved in his son's life as baseball coach, science partner but most of all, daddy.
He is preceded in death by his father, Robert Coverdell. Those left on this earth to remember him are his wife Aileen Coverdell, son Gregory and his mother Jo Ann Hill of Spokane. Aunt Carol Lee and Uncle Oystein Solheim of Shingle Springs, CA. Cousins that were more like sisters and brothers to him, Debbie and Dave Reynolds of Spokane, Beth and Ron Mainer of Sacramento, Eric and Helen Solheim of Adelaide, Australia.
Aileen's family considered Brad as the "eighth child" not the son/brother-in-law. He will be remembered by Frank Miley, Sharon, Robert, David, James, Benjamin and Edward. He was Uncle Brad to numerous nieces and nephews.
A memorial service will be held at 2:00 pm Saturday, March 19, 2011 at Christ the King Church, 1111 Stevens Drive, Richland, WA 99354 (509) 946-1675.
