Our condolences to all in the Morgan family. I met Brad at Monsanto early 1974 in the Canning Plant at Monsanto. He was a Senior Operator & I was a rookie. He was a big guy but always helpful to everybody and worked hard at Monsanto and other ventures he was involved with. I knew brother Bruce & his wife Karen as well as brother-in-law Steve Cochran & his wife Carol very well over the years. But this was sad news to hear. Words can't express how sorry my wife Kathy & I are with Brad's passing. It is a good time to remember how Brad had a positive impact with everybody he made contact with. I'll remember Brad and how he treated me and others around him as well as how hard working he was.
