Bace was only in my life a short while but he taught me many lessons. Had such a big heart and never hurt anybody. For the past couple months he treated me, my sisters and my mother like his own family and I couldn’t be more thankful for the time we shared. I know you’ll always be here with us. Love you Brace.

Brace, thank you so much for all you have done for my mother, sisters and I. You were always there to lend your helping hand. I loved watching you and my mom together, you both made each other young again. Being around you both made me feel full of joy and happiness. With all your help, the baby’s nursery is complete now! I

To Brace’s loved ones, My mom and dad, Dick and Marilyn Stade and myself, Vickie Stade-St. Vincent are very sorry to hear of your loss. My mom and dad were very good friends of Les and Marion Bauman. My mom and I would go to have mom’s hair cut and there would be Brace coming in and out of his mother’s hair salon. My dad and Les did many things together and I can remember family fun time together. My folks watched Brace grow up.We, again are so sorry to hear about Brace. He will live along side of us in our memories and hearts.
Was so sorry to read of Brace’s untimely passing. I was such a dear friend of your mom’s and dad’s and remember all the times I spent at your home in the “Buckeye”. Remember you and Brace as you grew up. My sympathy to all of you at this sorrowful time.
My heart goes out to the family of Brace.I attended Gladstone High School with him so many years ago. I have always remembered him, but over the years I have lost touch. I wanted to say good bye to a friend, and wish his family my deepest sympathy and prayers.
Good Bye Brace , I hope your journey to heaven was beautiful .

My heart and prayers go out to Brace’s family. Brace had a great love that he shared freely. Brace was one of the first people who befriended me when I moved to Gladstone in my Junior year. He aided and abetted me in many adventures that we were still laughing about as recently as my latest move to Colorado in 2010, via Facebook. I’ll miss him. My heart hurts for your loss, Susan and Mariah, and you, Marion. I wish I could be there to give you great, big hugs.

I’m gonna miss you so much never thought you would ever go. You were the closest thing i ever had to a dad and i am more than thankful for getting to know someone like you. You were a great grandfather to Alexandria and Jordan. We will never forget you. You changed our lives in so many positive ways and you showed me just how beautiful a life of sobriety could be. Thank you for being such a great dad.

Rest in peace Brace, you will be missed. We met back in 2001, when Susan, Kelly, Heather and I lived together in your old Trailer in Mt. Pleasant. You were my best man when Heather and I married and will always be the best forever.
