Bradley Herrick Brinkerhoff, returned to his heavenly home
in the early morning hours of September 7, 2013. 
He passed in our home, surrounded by his loving parents, brother and sisters. 
He leaves behind his Mother and Father, Mary and Tom,
 beautiful Sister Madeleine, brave brother Jacob and loving Sister Charlotte.
 He is also survived by his grandparents Gay and Steven Sluder,
and Lori and Kent Brinkerhoff.

His Aunts; Jennifer Rubio, Laura Bunnell, Cynthia Sluder, Beth Sluder, Natalie Tappan, Tamara Hansen, Shalee Brinkerhoff and Kristina Brinkerhoff.

 His Uncles; Jose Rubio, Zwieba Bunnell, Steven Sluder II, John Sluder, Trampus Tappan, Joseph Hansen, and Paul Brinkerhoff.

 And his twenty-nine first cousins;
Emily, Jose Jr, Isabelle, Wendy, Juan-Steven,
Samuel, Sarah, Adam, Eliza, Benjamin, Alice, Naomi,
Megan, Haley, Brooke, Ryan,
Addyson, Kate, Luke, Jack,
Megan, Vesta,
Heidi, Kent, Benjamin, Samantha,
Aiden, Evan and Ashton.
In his short life,
he did not receive the opportunity to walk, talk, or see
but his spirit affected the lives of all he knew. 
 He suffered from many health problems but did not complain. 
His vision was not limited to his “earth stuff”,
 he could see the greater purpose of life,
to progress toward perfection and ultimately realize
his divine destiny as an heir of eternal life.

We appreciate you letting us serve you,
by humbly submitting your amazing spirit to a broken body. 
We learned from you, loved you,
played with you, served you and walked for you. 
We all love you and are grateful
for your enduring influence in our life. 
Until we are together again,
enjoy walking with our Savior in Paradise.
