Bradley Aaron was born on February 13, 1969, to Frederick and Sandra (Reay) Holbrook in Prosser, Washington. His family moved to Fargo, North Dakota when he was a young boy.  Brad attended public schools and graduated from Woodrow Wilson High School in 1986. He enlisted in the U.S. Marines in April of 1986, and was stationed at Camp Pendleton, California. He served in the Gulf War.  After returning stateside, he met the love of his life Carolin Scheuch.  Following his honorable discharge in April of 1992, they remained in California.  Together they moved to Fargo where they were united in marriage on May 16, 1993, at St. Stephen Episcopal Church. Brad and Carolin were lucky enough to have a second wedding in December of that year in Germany with family and friends.  They moved to Alexandria in the fall of 1993, where Brad attended and graduated from the Alexandria Technical College in the Law Enforcement Program. Following his education, Brad began driving fuel truck.  Then he became an independent owner/operator trucking throughout the continental U.S. for over 20 years. In 2021, Brad returned to local fuel transporting work with Kane Fuel Transport of Sauk Centre until the time of his death. He thoroughly enjoyed driving fuel truck and considered it vacation after his many years on the road. He was a member of the Alexandria Gun Club. He enjoyed grilling and smoking meats, fishing when he had time, and friends he acquired through his online gaming.

He was preceded in death by his father, Frederick, on January 7, 2015.

Brad is survived by his wife of 29 years, Carolin; son, Frederick at home; mother, Sandra Holbrook of Fargo; brother, Martin (Tonya) Holbrook of Minot, North Dakota; father and mother-in-law, Klaus and Helga Scheuch of Mannheim, Germany; two nieces, Ariel (Isaac Morales) Holbrook and Grace Holbrook; nephew, Darius Holbrook; and great-nephew, Blair Morales.

I do not have the words to express how deeply sorry I am to hear about Brad's passing; he was truly loved by many. I pray the Lord will comfort your most tender hearts now and forever.
Semper Fi, Brad. May you guard the gates of Heaven now.
