This GoFundMe page is to support the young family of our dear friend, Bradford (Brady) James Entringer, who passed away at 31 years of age on Thursday, December 20th. With his unexpected passing, Brady leaves behind a wonderful wife (Mary), 2 Beautiful Daughters (Brooke - 2 1/2 & Maitlyn - 13), a Handsome Son (Madden - 10) & their family dog (Charles). In addition Brady leaves behind his parents (Gordon and Kathy) and younger sister (Erin).

They are all incredible individuals who deserve the very best care, love, and support in order to get through this devastating time. Although the Entringer Family would never ask for help, they are some of the most loving and generous people, so we are asking others to consider donating to support the family in the short & long term. With three kids at home, their family has many expenses that will quickly add up, and we want to make sure the Entringer family can focus on their health, happiness & love, rather than expenses for the foreseeable future.

To anyone who knew him, Brady was an incredible father, husband, son, brother, and friend. He was the sincerest man each of us had ever met. He was the kind of person who always had a smile on his face, tell you how much he appreciated your friendship and had a nickname for all those he loved. He would share anything with you — his time, his possessions, his love, and his support. As a father, family was number one in his life. Everything he did, he did for his wife and children.

In his early years Brady was a bright eyed and curious person. He was always the one asking the big questions and wanting to soak up as much knowledge as possible. Even at an early age Brady was well read and well informed. He always had a head full of tidbits of knowledge that you never knew you wanted to know. He was always the history buff and was always willing to sit you down and explain to you the politics of ancient Greece or the reasons behind the hundred years war. Brady attended grade school at Desert Valley Elementary. It was there that he made many lifelong friends and found his love for soccer. Brady was always athletic and played all the sports he could, but soccer was always his favorite. After Desert Valley Brady went on to high school at Ironwood. From the get-go Brady was always a popular and well sought out person to know. Whether he was roaming the halls with his freshly frosted spiked hair or he was tearing it up on the JV and Varsity soccer fields, Brady was always the one to watch. He made many friends and was loved by all. After high school Brady went on to NAU in Flagstaff where he made even more friends and found his calling for health care.

As an RN, Brady was passionate about what he did for his patients; always willing to go the extra mile for them to make sure they were taken care of in their time of need. Brady started his career in health care as a phlebotomist at John C. Lincoln. While working Brady studied hard and was accepted into the Mesa/Boswell Nursing Program. In school Brady was always in the top of his class. Even the instructors remember him has a tenacious and enthusiastic student. After graduating nursing school Brady went on to work at John C. Lincoln north mountain in the PCCU. There Brady cared for many acutely ill cardiac patients. After JCL Brady moved on to Banner Thunderbird Hospital where he worked in the PCCU as well. It was here that Brady met his now wife Mary. Eventually Brady wanted to branch out away from hospital work and went into home care. It was in home care that Brady really hit is passion and true purpose in life. Brady made a name for himself in the home care world and in a very short amount of time Brady was named the proud owner of Home Instead Senior Care. Brady truly made a difference in thousands of patients lives over his 10+ year span in healthcare. His passion and love for what he did was evident in the care that he brought to his patients. His skills as a nurse were truly second to none.

For those of us fortunate enough to know him, Brady was a true light in our lives. His million-dollar smile and contagious laugh will be forever engrained in our hearts. He is a part of all of us and for many of us, we are better people for having known him.

Brady’s passing is tragic not only for his loss of life but also for the devastating effects on his family. Please know that any amount — no matter how small — will benefit the Entringer family. Whether for diapers, extracurricular activities for the kids & forward thinking for their college tuition. Your donation will make a significant difference in the lives of Brady’s wife, 2 daughters & son. May they live long, happy, and healthy lives with the help of all of us.

With heavy hearts & gratitude,
We Love and miss you Bradford Entringer

Go fund me has asked that I include a little information about myself for transparency. My name is Shane Smith and Brady and I have been best friends/brothers since we were 5 years old. We went to kindergarten, grade school, high school, and even college together. We both grew up in Glendale, AZ just one mile from each other. I now live in Sun City, AZ. I am a nurse like Brady and am only one because of his amazing leadership and encouragement.

I offered to add her to the account but at this time she is unable to view the page due to grief. All money will be deposited into my secure savings account and will be held untouched until Mary is ready to receive the funds. No money will go to myself or anyone other than Mary Entringer. I spoke with Mary and she intends to use the money to help cover bills and living expenses to offset the loss of income from Brady’s passing.
