Bradley Wayne Kendrick, a native of Baton Rouge, Louisiana and a resident of New Orleans, passed away unexpectedly on October 7, 2021, at University Medical Center in New Orleans. He was a graduate of Christian Life Academy in Baton Rouge, attended Louisiana State University and Southeastern Louisiana University where he received an IT degree. He was employed by Accruent, a global software company, where he was well liked and very highly thought of by his co-workers and bosses. Bradley came into this world on March 28, 1977. He spread laughter and love wherever he went. He loved to fish and hunt with his friends. Brad's crawfish boiling skills were legendary; he hosted many memorable occasions. He will be forever missed by his mother, Penelope Barrios Kendrick, his sister, Bonnie Adele Kendrick, his brother, John Harvey Kendrick, Jennifer Keen and their Bassett Hound Lucy, his aunts, uncles, cousins, and his many friends. Bradley was preceded in death by his father, Randy Wayne Kendrick, his maternal grandparents, Marcelle Neumann Barrios and Henry C. Barrios, and his paternal grandparents, Doris Morgan Kendrick, and John Harvey Kendrick. Brad's family and friends would like to thank the emergency and ICU medical staff and nurses at University Medical Center for taking such great care of our Brad. We especially thank Dr. David Janz, Director of Medical Critical Care Services at University Medical Center, whose kindness will never be forgotten. Brad has always been an extraordinary blessing to his family and as an organ donor he will also be a blessing to so many others as well. We would like to thank the exceptional people at LOPA who helped us through this process.
