My life & many others were enriched by Bradley. He will be missed so much by us. Now to put into practice the positive examples that I feel he portrayed in his 'race' through this life.

Have known Bradley for so many years, from days on the farms in Kenoma, to him encouraging me when I played basketball and now Mayor and tough decisions. Few people I have encountered were more positive and encouraging, and that showed every week for YEARS as he and Donita set the standard as church greeters. Firm handshake, hugs, words of encouragement always started Debbie and my Sunday mornings and church off on the right foot.
Great family on all sides and I know he will be greatly missed by all of them but certainly by all the Harris family. My dad considered him a great friend way back in the day and I learned why as I grew up.
He will he missed by so many but also we are thankful for his witness and know he is greeting others in Heaven now.
Kent & Debbie
