RIP Brad.
He spoke at my FSA conference last year, and sat with us at the banquet. He was a very inspiring and motivating man!

He was 59? His pictures make him looks like he was in his 70s;I have never met him, but I voted for him, a big fan of him. RIP.

Rest in peace, Brad.
Agreed. He was definitely one of most eloquent SOA presidents when speaking in public. He really typified the qualities of an actuarial leader, and his influence will survive well beyond his years with us.
