Bradley C. Harper, age 23, was a firefighter with the Phoenix Fire Department in Phoenix, Arizona. He was injured at the scene of a fire and died of those injuries on May 19, 2013.
Brad was a faithful Christian; a loving husband, son, and brother; and a loyal friend. He was a fitness and nutrition enthusiast, a junior high basketball coach, and a role model for his three younger brothers.
His dream was to be a Phoenix firefighter. He graduated from Northwest Christian High School in 2008, the Phoenix Fire Academy in 2011, and Grand Canyon University in 2012. After completing the academy, Brad roved until a permanent position opened up on Rescue 21, the station that had been his first booter assignment.
Brad’s first love was his wife, Lena. Although only his wife for a short time, she was the love of his life since they met in 10th grade. His life was full and without regret.
Well done, good and faithful servant. (Matthew 25:23)
