On Monday, Sept. 30, 2019, Bradley Reese Haile passed away at the young age of 19 while stationed in Spangdahlem, Germany. He was born March 3, 2000 to Bradley Haile and Stephanie Brown and had an unbreakable bond with his sister Presley. He joined the Air Force out of high school and demonstrated his love and pride for his country with strength and courage.
Reese possessed a myriad of talents from hunting and tanning snakes to his ability to perform songs after only a half hour of learning them. He loved playing guitar, especially when performing with his sister, and appreciated music of all kinds.
Reese was one of the most accepting young men in the world. He could talk to anyone and everyone for hours without a problem and practiced kindness wherever he was. He was loved by many for his big personality, his big, goofy smile and dimples, and the way he feared nothing. He was an avid tinker and would make or fix anything, especially his truck, which he put so much work into. He was an outdoorsmen and full of adventure up to his last breath. There’s no doubt he still had quite a few adventures left in him.
