We are deeply saddened to hear of the passing of Brad Kunce.
We just had dinner with him and Amberlee's family three weeks ago during the Christmas Holidays. We could tell he was a very kind and loving man.
He will be sorely missed by all who knew him.
May his love and kindness always be in the hearts of his family in remembrance.

I knew Brad as a second dad from the numerous slumber parties Amberlee and I had throughout middle school. I always remember Brad as a funny and loving Dad to his girls. He told me on a few occasions both as a kid and adult that he was happy that Amberlee had me as a friend. It was such a wonderful sentiment for him to share with me and I will never forget that. I promise to Brad that I will continue to be there for Amberlee in sad times such as these and when joyous ones return too. Ride a drop of rain in the clouds of heaven and we will see your smile again.
Sarah Law Eh,

To the 3 amazing daughters Brad raised. I am so sorry for your loss, you dad was kind, funny, loyal and always had a smile one his face. He will be greatly missed by anyone who had the pleasure to know him and way lucky to be touched by him kind and giving heart. I know there are no words to help you through this difficult time but know its okay to be sad and grieve. Lean on each other and your loved ones when your having a hard day or ask for help from friends. (That's what we are here for) Some of the best memories I have of your dad are when we were in high school. Let's just say he was the "cool" dad of the group. He always was such a good dad to all you girls and you could see how proud he was of each of you. When I saw him last at your wedding Amber he didn't look like he aged a bit from high school and still had that exact same friendly, warm and welcoming smile. I know its not going to be easy moving forward with life without him but know he will always be in your heart and he taught you each so much. I will be praying for you all. RIP Brad!
