  10. Brad was a childhood friend until I moved to Florida. Our dads were buddies and played basketball together for the Land O’ Lakers team that Mike Reimers sponsored. He then became a life long frend when we remained in touch by telephone, then Facebook or my occasional trip back to Grayslake, or a Spring break in Daytona Beach. He Truly showed his heart when we spoke 2 weeks ago and he asked about and visited my brother Larry at his residence in Waukegan and sent me a selfie of the 2 of them. That was very special. I Will miss all our laughs and talks.🙏 Brad I know you’re Alive with the Lord. Love from all The Falknor family.

  11. Rest in peace Brad, God has it from here… Your smile, your laughter, your sense of humor will always live on in my memories! My deepest sympathy to his entire family, he was a helluva guy that would do anything for anyone. xoxo

  12. To a friend I shared my ‘wonder years’ with.

    It was just a short time ago we were playing catch, riding our bikes and getting into mischief together. My favorite school picture is the one you gave me a black eye[probably deserved] the weekend before picture day.

    Adulthood saw us drift apart but when we reconnected on FB we were just bigger versions of the little boys we were 5 decades ago.

    Rest in peace .
    Until we meet again,

    Stevie S
