Unhappy Passing of an Offshore Fan

As most of you know the Miss GEICO team spends some of our off time reaching out to our community. This past year in Biloxi we were fortunate to meet a special young man that loved Offshore Powerboats and Racing. While visiting the oncology ward we walked into a bleak hospital room covered in pictures of raceboats and poker run boats. There sat Brad Maxwell with a big smile and a loving family around him. "I can't wait for the race tomorrow" he said " they are moving my bed to the window of my room so I can watch ...next year I'll be down there again"

Brad passed away yesterday.... with his family by his side and all of your boats on the wall in front of him, dreaming of the day he would be back out on the water.

Brad Maxwell..... A true fan of offshore.

Godspeed

Marc and Scotty

That is sad news.

I am sure you can imagine how much your visit to the hospital brightened his days. Don't be discouraged and keep up the good work

Sorry to hear that. You all do put forth a fantastic effort and I'm sure that few moments made a world of difference.
