Brad was born on Sept. 12, 1957, in Manchester, Iowa, the son of Melvin and Shirley (Biederman) Spinler. Brad was employed by Comprehensive Energy Services as a chiller mechanic/technician and was a specialist in his field. He loved to watch John Wayne movies and enjoy an ice-cold bottle of Bud Light. Brad loved to ride his Harleys, had a huge personality and you knew when he walked into the room, you might even hear him first. He could capture everyone's attention with his great storytelling ability. Brad's greatest passion in life was spending time with his family and friends. He will be missed by all who knew and loved him.
