My thoughts and prayers go out to the entire family. I will always remember Brad as a very kind classy guy. He always treated everyone with respect . Even though I am an average golfer at best Brad always invited me to play with him at Bayhill an other golf courses around Orlando. Always showing his patience and kindness along the way. A true class act who left us way too soon. I know Brad was and is a very spiritual man and that he is alive and healthier than ever in Heaven.

Having played a few rounds of golf with Brew in Winona was such a pleasure. The first was a match at the CC when he was 15yrs old. It was so much fun to watch him hit the ball. I enjoyed a few trips to Orlando and see him and meet Wanda. I had one lesson from him. He was such a god teacher

I was truly blessed to be able to know Brad for 6 years. He and his academy have played a big role in the success of the Lake Highland Golf Program. We learned through his wisdom. I witnessed countless children from grades 2-12 find the love of golf because of The Brad Brewer Academy. It is such a gift that I get to take so many of his teachings and memories and have them live on with the future of our junior golfers. Rest well Brad, a job well done.

I had the great opportunity to work with Brad at the Arnold Palmer Golf Academies. We have stayed friends for many years. His passing will leave a big void within his Family and in the Golf community as well.

"...the consummate gentleman..."

"...class personified..."

Just a couple of ways to describe Brad that come to mind.

I was fortunate to work with Brad and his then golf academy partner Dick Tiddy at Bay Hill in the early/mid-90's. For a number of years we worked out of the same office space above the men's locker-room --- being with those guys on a daily basis was SO much fun!

Brad was thoughtful and deliberate, he never rushed anything.

Brad was a great friend. 10-days or 10-years could pass, and nothing would change.

What a top bloke Brad was...

May peace be with the family.

It was a privilege and honor to know, work with, play golf, and teach with Brad. We worked together at Turtle Bay on the North Shore of Oahu. Brad was truly a class act. After many years later Brad brought a corporate group to Kauai for a golf school. He got a hold of me and asked if I would like to come over and help teach the group. He was such a true golf professional. He will now be in a better place along with his mentor Arnold Palmer. Brad will sadly be missed, we still kept in contact through social media after 35 years of meeting each other.
Aloha Brad ❤
