I knew Bradley as Uncle B from the TAW gaming community. He was a dear friend and we talked on a daily basis. He was a loyal and true member of our community and a wonderful, caring human being. Uncle B was heavily involved with the managing of our tournament teams, and had many friends across multiple games, all over the world. He made a meaningful, lasting impression on all of us. His presence will be deeply missed. My heartfelt condolences go out to the members of his family. Please know that I, and many others, will never forget him.
