I'm just hearing about this...awful news. Such a great tribute Tim. BTW, the above photo was taken on January 5, 1986 as we headed to Soldier Field for the Bears-Giants playoff game.

Poignant. No doubt he would have appreciated your sentiments. Great flashback to the 80s!

Thanks guys.

Rich Beckman

I never heard of the guy, and now I miss him. A great tribute indeed.

Brad was one of the all-time, all-around great humans. Thank you for a beautiful reminder, Tim.

Dave Wilcox

What a wonderful string of recollections, Tim. For an art director, you're a pretty good writer. And thanks for the flashback... when we were all youngsters at NH&S. I hope I can make it to Schuba's for Brad's memorial.

Thank you, Rich.

Colleen! I can't quite make out what your glasses are in your photo, but you look like you're from the future, which reflects your thinking, which is good.
Thanks for reading.

Tim@Cubby Blue

Hey Dave, thank you and hope to see you there.


My condolences Tim.
Brad was a great guy. I never had the chance to grab a beer with him while I worked at DDB, but he always made me feel like I was a close friend when we spoke.
We need more people like Brad in the world.
May he rest in peace.
