On June 7th, our beloved Brad Zettler was called home to share his glory up in Heaven. Brad was an amazing Father, Husband, Son, Leader and Milton High School sports pillar who dedicated 110% of his boundless energy to his family and community. Spending time with Brad was truly a gift, as his positive and joyous mindset simply made the people around him better. His zest for life was contagious.
He generously invested his time in developing our children, coaching football, baseball, basketball and soccer for over 20 years. Brad passionately taught our boys lifelong lessons about character and competition and modeled what it looks like to be a good man and an outstanding human being. He loved all sports, but had a special place in his heart for Milton Football, where he served as the program’s Feeder Coach (“my boys” as he called his players) for 6 years and Touchdown Club President for 3 years.
The only thing Brad loved more than Milton football was his wife Dana, boys Blake and Brayden, and his parents, Shirley and Bobby. The family was ever-present at games and events, volunteering countless hours in support of the program. The Zettler family unit was one-of-a-kind, freely opening their home and inviting everyone into their world.
Though filled with tremendous sadness at his loss, we will focus on Gratitude and Positivity - because that’s what he would do. And the positive is this - we can be forever grateful to have called him husband, son, father, coach and friend and experience the joy of knowing him.
The outpouring of love expressed to honor this selfless man has been truly powerful. It is the reason we have established this fundraiser to give the Milton community an opportunity to honor Brad and support his family. These funds will also be used in support of the Brad Zettler “Live Loud” Scholarship fund.
You will always be in our hearts, we love you BZ. “Family on 3; Family on 3; 1, 2, 3, Family!!!”
