With great sadness I have to report that the Petroliana community has lost another great man. Brad Grabow has lost his battle with cancer today. He was the kindness man I have ever met. A riot to travel with. I know I am gonna miss him greatly. Anyone who ever met him would agree. I would like to thank all the Oldgasser's who donated for his benefit last year, it really made a difference in his life. RIP old friend.

Sorry to hear this news. Bradley was most certainly a unique character and will be missed by most all who knew him. I especially will miss hanging out with him at the various Matthews auction events we both attended over the years. Dinner at the Peotone beer stube was always an adventure with Bradley at the table. RIP my friend.

Thanks

RIP Brad. You will truly be missed. I want to say thank you to Rocco for introducing me to Brad last year at Columbus we all went out together and he a great dinner. I laughed the whole time with Brad and Rocco. He was truly a great man and a great member of the OG community.

I was at Bradley's bed side last night with his family at the time of his passing.It was very sad to see him suffer for the last 10 days.This was a man who could move a tokheim 850 on a hand cart by himself.A real fun guy with lots of jokes even though he'd forget the punch line most of the time made it even better.
We went to a lot of gas shows together over the years and i always helped him the best i could to set up and sell his stuff and i'm glad i did that for him.
He was a great guy who i think loved my wife more than i do.
I will miss him greatly.RIP Bradley

I knew Brad for two years and we bought and sold from each other on several occasions. A fair man who was easy to talk to and with a great sense of humor. My condolences to his family.

I still have the thank you card from Brads fund raiser last year. I've kept it on my desk all this time and think of him often. I didn't know him well but had met him at Iowa and really liked him. RIP Bradley!
