I remember, and pretty sure photos still exist, the time at Jane & Ken’s wedding when we both were standing on folding chairs and conducting the wedding band. No one else would do it with me but you, and I never forgot that. And I still wear the UM hockey jersey you gave me for Christmas 20+ years ago. More recently we bent many an elbow at wedding receptions and graduation parties, but much less frequently. Your kindness and humor will be missed, altogether far, far too soon. God grant you peace, and your family strength.

Dear Uncle Gary, Gary & Teresa, Greg & Kathy: There really are no words that I can say to help lessen your grief… We all agree Brad was too young, he loved to make people laugh, he will be missed by all who were fortunate enough to be touched by him and his happy go lucky style! Let’s all take a lesson from Brad, love life, love people, and tell those you love, how special they are! Time is so precious! Rest in peace, Brad!

Brad was one of my best friends. He always made me laugh and was the kindest soul. Not a day will go buy that I will think about his funny jokes, his warm smile and sometimes off color remarks. I will miss you Brad and love you always. To his family I send my deepest condolences.

Oh dear I am so sorry to hear Brad passed away. He was always so kind to me here at work or at Workhealth, and always ready with a joke. I could tell he was feeling pain however still managed to make those around him laugh. Brad will be missed. Rest in peace my friend.

So very sad to know you have passed far too soon, but entirely blessed to have had the opportunity to know you at all. You will be missed by many Bradley, but certainly never forgotten. I already miss your genuine, bright smile! Rest in peace my Peckham friend.

Uncle Gary, Gary & Teresa and Greg & Kathy,

We were stunned to hear of Brad’s passing at so young an age. Our thoughts and prayers are with you in the difficult days ahead. I know that at a tense time like this, you could always count on Brad to crack a joke to lighten the mood. We will miss his kind heart and bright smile! Be at peace, Brad.

So sorry to hear of the news from my parents recently… Have since reconnected with some of our former Eastern HS hockey teammates as a result, and though we were all devastated to learn of his passing, it was a time to reminesce and laugh about all of the good times we had. Though we have all gone our separate ways since those days, the memories of that team and the Masseau family will forever stay with us all. Sincere condolences to the family, amazing that I so vividly remember all the lessons and the laughter to this day.
