Brad was born on June 11, 1971 at Mercy Hospital, the son of Dale and Jean (Scott) Burkett of Milton, WI. As a young boy growing up in Janesville, Brad always liked to be outdoors.

While in school, he was a member of the wrestling teams at Edison and Craig. He was an excellent swimmer and took life-saving courses at the YMCA. Being very talented, he took lessons and learned to play the piano, and even had a short recital at the Janesville Mall.

Brad resided in Janesville his entire life, except for a few years in the late 1990's when he lived in the Denver, CO area, where he worked at various jobs. When he returned to Wisconsin, he worked for home-siding contractors before working at a local plastic forming company. He was also employed by Seneca Foods, and most recently worked for Simmons Mattress Company in Janesville.
Brad is survived by his parents, Dale and Jean Burkett of Janesville; his younger brother, Brent who also lives in Janesville; Brad's fiancee, Vickie Sorenson; and a special person in Brad's life, Vickie's 4 year old grandson, Kal, who resides with them.
