Bradley “B-Rad” Warren Peach, passed away on June 6, 2020 in Orlando, Florida at the age of 46. Brad is survived by his wife, Cristy “Bink”; son, Killian; brother, Earl; stepbrother, Glenn; stepsister, Ramona (Peach) Johnston along with several nieces and nephews. He is preceded in death by his sister, Cynthia (Peach) Bradley; mother, Shirley; and father, Bert.
Brad was born on January 14, 1974 in Washington D.C. He met the love of his life, Bink (albeit without knowing it yet) in 1986 when they were just 13 years old. Brad graduated from Middletown High School; Middletown, Maryland in 1992. After high school he worked as an auto detailer for Dan’s Automotive in Frederick, Maryland. This sparked an enthusiasm for cars that would be the catalyst for his success, as he advanced in his profession from his first promotion to Painter’s Helper, all the way to Automotive Adjuster.
In 1993, Brad and Bink welcomed their son, Killian Mikal Peach into their young lives. Killian affectionately remembers his dad tucking him in “like a mummy” at bedtime. Killian also recalls the fun times of Volbeat Saturdays and Tie Dye Sundays. On February 2, 2002 Brad married his “sweet pea” Bink, and with this, Killian had the extraordinary opportunity to hand his father the ring that his mother so fondly wears. Brad also loved riding motorcycles, and was finally able to convince Bink to join him, which led to many hours together just loving the ride, the wind, and each other…..just cruizin along!
In 2002, the family moved to Altamonte Springs, Florida, where Brad worked for several businesses as an Automotive Adjuster. Since he loved going to the beach, he of course appreciated living in Florida. Brad and Bink would sometimes seize the opportunity to getaway and would go to Daytona and stay at Perry’s for their homemade donuts – which they enjoyed together every morning. Just finding time to relax, spend time together enjoying the sea breeze, and getting refreshed.
Bradley and Bink dabbled with cooking BBQ that started as a hobby. Over time, after numerous accolades from friends and family, a few successful freelance catering gigs, and also winning awards at various BBQ competitions in central Florida, they knew they were ready to kickstart a business that could showcase their new passion – and it was a passion they shared, which undoubtedly made it a little bit extra special, with common dreams of mobile catering, bigger festivities, and someday expansion….all slathered in Brad’s Secret BBQ sauce!!!
Let’s think of and celebrate Brad for all of the good stuff, and take it to heart that his personality would most certainly want us to honor him with recollection, reminiscence, and to share fun, silly, wild stories about who he was and what he meant to so many of us.
