    Alex and family,
    I am so sorry to hear this news. Your dad is my cousin and your grandma Phyllis and my dad Gordon were brother and sister. This just breaks my heart. I so much enjoyed the visits with your dad when we would come to Mnpls and also last year in Fargo. We got to meet Lucy and I took my picture with them. He texted me pictures of his new grandchild and was so happy and proud. Please keep in touch with us as we do truly want to keep a connection with your family. Gods blessings to you and your family at this time. Your mom and dad are together again and watching over your family all the time. Sending love from Rapid City. I know my mom sends her sympathy too, Phyllis Gilbertson. With love, Vicki and Gale Thompson

    My sympathy to Brad’s family.

    I graduated with Brad in 1969. We always had so much fun together and I’m glad we lived through those times so he could live a long life and become a husband, father and grandfather.

    I saw him at our school reunions and he hadn’t changed a bit from his younger years. He was so pleasant to be around still and I was looking forward to next year in hopes of seeing him again.

    You were blessed to have had such a loving father.

    I will definitely miss my good friend and high school football teammate.

  18. Jane (Rovang) Doane says:

    We are thankful for having known Brad in our teenage years. Our whole family remembers “Mr Jorgenson” as our English teacher at Ashby High School. His enthusiasm and dedication left a lasting impression, and made us proud to be “bookworms”. Our sympathy goes out to his family, and we pray that God will comfort you in this time of loss.

    Alex & Sarah,

    Joan & I just heard the shocking and heartbreaking news from my Mom, Christine Olson (Jorgensen (Donald’s sister)), that your Dad passed away.

Please know our thoughts and prayers are with you, Sarah and baby Lauren. We share your profound sadness and will miss him dearly.

    Dear Alex and family, Brad and I grew up together practically side by Sideas dear friends through many of life’s stages: Happy Corner, bus rides, 4H, Concordia, English teachers both, and so much more. You were blessed to have such a kind,loving, fun and funny dad and I have taken comfort knowing he had time to spend with you, your family and his Granddaughter. Im guessing they had a few giggles together. I was shocked and saddened to hear of his passing and now wish you peace and the comfort of love. Deb

  27. Jan (Thorkildson) Wills says:

    Alex and family,
    I am so sad (and shocked) to hear of Brad’s passing. Jorgensens lived across the road from us, and we loved them. Brad, my brother John, and I were “thick as thieves”, stealing crab apples from “Grampa’s” trees. We were pals, way back! Growing up in Happy Corner, we sang in the St. Petri choir, road the bus to Stephen Public School, and participated for years in 4-H. Over the past 1-2 years Brad and I reconnected on FaceBook. We were looking forward to our next All School Reunion so we could reminisce at our family’s farm. I will always remember Brad as my very dear neighbor and good friend.
