Bradley Borud
February 21, 1969 - November 14, 2020

Residence: Stanley, North Dakota

Bradley Dean Borud was born February 21, 1969 in Minot, ND, to Arlo and Faye Borud. He lived in Carpio, ND until September 1981. Brad attended the first 6 grades of school in Minot, ND, through the Special Education program. He participated in the Special Olympics with swimming as his sport. The family moved to Stanley, ND the Fall of 1981. Brad was so happy to be able to go to the same school as his brothers for the first time!

He spent many years of his life at the farm in Hartland with his Grandpa Sam, Grandma Arlene and his older brother, Brian. Brad was THE HELPER! The farm was very special to him and it was his “happy place”. He loved every inch and kept the yard in tip-top shape.

Brad followed all sports: Stanley Blue Jays, ORCS Knights, Berthold Bombers, NDSU, Vikings, golf and bowling. He enjoyed his family gatherings. Brad loved to travel and was the tour guide in all history trips. Going to Arizona was on the top of his list and he was known for sending his Facebook friends pictures of the beautiful area and sunsets. If there was any down time, cards were in order. He loved camping at Van Hook and always did great fireworks shows at the lake. Brad enjoyed Sunday nights at the NoDak races with Jim Sundley. Saturday football time was spent with the Evans’ family and Sunday football with the Rice family.

He was employed at Pinnacle in Stanley for the past 13 years and was very proud of his job.

He was preceded in death by his grandparents, Sam and Arlene Norgard and Alfred and Bessie Borud; sister-in-law, Robin (Sundley) Borud; uncles Leonard Rath and Darrell Borud.

Bradley is survived by his parents, Arlo and Faye; brothers: Brian and Janel (Westby) Borud and their sons, Tanner, Hunter (Bety Aguilar) and Conner and Brent Borud and his children, Brock and Mya; several aunts, uncles and cousins.

We were blessed that God chose us to be his parents and that we were able to spend 51 beautiful years with Brad. God bless his memory.

So sorry for your loss. Our family only knew Brad for a short time as he traveled to many Blue Hawk football games with the Rice family. He loved to tailgate and enjoyed watching the games and of course the post game time on the field win or loss after the game. He was a wonderful reminder of how wins and losses will come and go but friendships leave a lasting positive impact on life.

So sorry to hear about Brad’s passing. I will always remember most about him was his infectious smile and always so happy beaming with joy. We were lucky to know him in this world. My heart goes out to you all, his family and friends. I know this is a sorrowful time for the whole community as he was such a pleasure to be around, everyone knew Brad and if you didn’t he was quick to politely introduce himself. May he be at peace in Heaven. Prayers and hugs to all.

My thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. I was one of Brad’s teachers when he was 6. I was Miss Anderson then. Brad was the cutest and sweetest little boy. We made caramel rolls and churned butter from fresh farm cream. They were delicious. I remember visiting with you Faye. I am so glad that he had so many wonderful times in his life with his family, grandparents and friends.

Faye, Arlo, Brian, Brent, and Borud Family,

I was deeply saddened to learn this week of Brad's passing. My hope is that these days of grief will pass quickly, to be replaced by warm memories of the smiles and laughter you shared with Brad. Faye, the stories you shared during the eulogy at the Brad's funeral were thoughtful and touching. You so perfectly framed Brad's warm and gentle nature. I can only imagine how much better the world would be if more people could match Brad's kindness, compassion, and strong work ethic.

If there is a farm in Heaven, I bet Brad and Sam are walking through a wheat field right now. Caesar is trotting along their side. Brad is carrying some colorful, oddly shaped rocks that Sam picked up from the field: soon to be additions to the collection around the back deck of the Hartland house. Brad and Sam are both in their “happy place.”

Sincere condolences and best wishes to you all,

Jeff Johnson
