Justin Valckx Bb was my dads best friend. I could always chirp him about his love for the red wings and he would tell me how much the leafs suck. He was an inspiration for all of us and a person to wish we all could be like.
Becky Gach I never met Brian but had to pleasure of working with his daughter, Michele. Given the amazing young woman he raised, I know he himself was an amazing father, husband & man. Thoughts and prayers to the Bradley family, while distance prevents me from attending the funeral I will be there in spirit.

JOHN & TERRI LITTLEWe would like to express our condolences to Lyna, Michele, Andrew and Justin on the loss of such a wonderful man, husband and father. Brian was always a bright light when he came to our fitness centre, not only in regard to his incredibly focused work ethic, but also for the cerebral and engaging dialogue that always followed his workouts. These will be missed. There really are no words that will ease the pain his family is going through right now but we just wanted to relate how impacted we (and obviously many, many others) were upon learning of the news.
John & Linda TobinOur deepest sympathies to Lyna and the entire Bradley family. We were shocked when we received the news of Brian's passing.

Rod MitchellI first met Brian almost 28 years ago when we did our first retirement home development together through Community Lifecare. Looking back we were business partners for about 22 years. His intelligence and wit were well known to all that knew him. In more recent years Brian had become more content than anytime is in life. He had a great family and spoke of Lyna and the kids all the time, he was a Detroit fan which did make me question his decision making skills. He was a great business man that all in our company can attest to, and more to the point a great friend. I will miss Brian greatly, the breakfast meetings, marketing calls, trips to the homes will just not be the same anymore. He left us doing what he loved and without fuss which was his way. Good bye dear friend. Rod and Shirley Mitchell
