Mr. Bradley went home to be with the Lord Tuesday, April 23, after a short battle with cancer. Brad was a member of Trussville Church of Christ but attended Trussville First United Methodist Church. He graduated from Hewitt-Trussville in 1994. He worked at Williams and Associates in Birmingham.

He was preceded in death by his grandparents, Mr. and Mrs. Dewey Still and Mr. and Mrs. Curtis Echols.

He is survived by his wife, Laurie; his children, Katie and Jake; his parents, Teresa (Larry) Grizzard and Wendell (Wanda) Echols; his sister, Mandy (Daniel) Dixon; as well as nephews, in-laws, aunts, uncles and cousins, all of whom he loved dearly.

In lieu of flowers, the family requests donations may be sent to the Trussville First United Methodist Church Building Fund.

Visitation will be from 5 to 7 p.m. Thursday at the church.

The family would like to thank Dr. Conry and his nursing staff at the Kirklin Clinic on Acton Road for their special care throughout Brad's illness. They would also like to thank their extended family, the Seekers Sunday School class and other lifelong friends, for walking each step of this journey with them. Your calls, emails, visits, meals and most of all, prayers, have carried them through this difficult time.
