Rad was born on November 7, 1945 in Transylvania County to parents Hugh and Sybil Bramlett. He graduated from Brevard High School in 1964. Following high school he joined the United States Air Force, where he proudly served in Vietnam. He was honorably discharged as an Airman First Class. Following his service to our country, Rad was employed by Lockheed-Martin for a short time, then he began his 30 year career with United Parcel Service.

Rad was an avid fisherman, whether on a creek bank, on a pier, or on a boat, an honored member of the Wilson Boundary Bear Hunting Club, a proud father and papaw, an impressive story-teller, and an incessant jokester. Most importantly he was a true friend and blessing to everyone who ever crossed his path. He was loved and adored by friends and family, both far and near.
