Brad Watson's Memorial Fund

Brad Watson's Sunday started like any other Sunday. He got up before anyone else with a list of things he wanted to get done. This particular Sunday was to pick up the yard after having some trees cut down the day before. Brad, as he was known to do, didn't take his cell phone with him as he was preoccupied with his to-do list. Around 10:30 this morning, Shelly (Brad’s wife) went outside to find him to see if he wanted to get lunch with family. Shelly found Brad laying in the driveway, unresponsive with a head wound from a fall. Shelly called 911 and performed CPR until the ambulance arrived. Shortly after arriving to Mary Greeley, the family was informed that Brad had not made it.



Brad passed away on Sunday, September 10, 2017 at the age of 56. He was taken from us so suddenly without any notice. The family is still in shock of the events.  This was so unexpected.

He is being sent to the state examiner for an autopsy to determine the cause of his untimely death. His spouse, Shelly, is currently in the hospital being assessed for heart issues as of that evening. Brad did not have a Will established. My goal is to raise money for Shelly during this difficult time and transition for the family as they work through this unexpected horrible loss.

Obituary, funeral arragements and details to follow. 

Please keep Shelly, her children, grandchild and family in your thoughts.
