With both sadness and peace we announce the passing of Bradley Virginillo after a long and courageous battle with cancer.

He graduated with a degree in chemical engineering that began his twenty-eight year career in the oil and gas industry. Brad enjoyed hunting, skiing, camping, gardening, boating and most of all, spending time with friends and family.
