On 23 September, Jeffrey "Bull" Braden was found unresponsive in the water at San Luis Beach, Naval Base Guam.

The Hawaiian Raptor community has lost one of our best...a promising young fighter pilot, a husband, father, brother, son, nonstop comedian, and loyal friend. He is survived by his wife Layne, their daughter Kenzie Beth, and their unborn child.

At this time, we are collecting donations for immediate travel expenses for his family and any unforeseen future expenses.

Thank you for your support during these trying times.

Please see the Facebook Memorial page for updates on upcoming events.

Layne's parents arrived yesterday afternoon, and Bull's parents arrived last night - a few more family and friends are arriving soon. Arrangements are being made for a family rental near Bull and Layne's home.

Jets will be arriving thru the weekend as they return home from Guam, and Layne plans to meet the first cell to collect some of Bull's personal property. We need to get our families back together to begin the healing process.

A draft schedule for memorial services has been built and we will publish it soon.

Your outpouring of support has been incredible, and thank you from the Braden family for your continued support.

I had the honor and privilege of working with Bull at the 199th and 19th FS. I will never forget his BIG smile, kind heart and mischievous "Whoooo!!!" before every take off brief. His lovely wife Layne has always been so wonderful and welcoming and I send hugs, aloha and prayers to all Ohana. God Bless you and keep you sir, you were taken too soon.

Hello to the sweet family. I would like to send my thoughts and prayers to you all. I am a friend of a friend, a grateful civilian, and as a new mother I can only imagine the heartache you have to endure. I wish that you can find comfort and solace in those surrounding you. It appears that Jeffrey was loved very very much.
