I appreciated Brad for taking time for me and a small group of teenagers from my church when I was younger. He was kind and hospitable. Our condolences to Kate and Cynthia.

So sorry for your loss. I knew Brad through square dancing and remained friends through his Navy time. Gentle hearted soul. May he now jump for joy in Heaven in his new healed body.

I'm saddened by the news of Brads passing. He showed great kindness to me as a child when my mother was in an accident. His family took me in while my dad was working out of town. Brad went out of his way to make me feel welcome. Many time through the years this neighbor treated me so kindly!! As a child I'd wished he was my big brother. I'll always have a soft spot in my heart fro Brad and his family. While we will miss him, He is at home with his Heavenly Father in Paradise!!!

Brad was a very interesting guy! I worked with him occasionally at the Sheriff's Office. When our paths did cross and we'd start a conversation, I never knew where it was going to go or end up once we started talking. He had so much information stored in his head and could bring it out whenever the occasion called for it. Interesting tidbits you wouldn't necessarily think about -- which challenged you to dredge up stuff you didn't even know you knew, or never thought you'd use! He made beautiful jewelry too. My sincere condolences to Brad's family. I hope you all will find comfort in memories of happy times spent with him.

I am sorry to hear about the death of Brad Killip. It is truly our loss. I worked with Brad for many years in Custody for the Clark County Sheriff's Department. Brad was very knowledgeable and skilled. I last spoke with him for a few minutes at Archery World. Brad told me how much he loved working with the staff and especially teaching archery skills to children. Brad made beautiful jewelry and loved his parrots. Brad was a man of many talents and he will be missed! My condolences to Brad's family and all of his friends.
