Brad Preslicka Memorial
Brad started “Double B Repair & Manufacturing” in 1990 when he converted a machine shed on the farm into his repair shop. He had a high school degree and taught himself the welding trade. He was a successful businessman, taking time to visit with and listen to his customers. He enjoyed sharing stories and telling jokes. Brad was devoted to his customers, often opening the shop after hours to help farmers during harvest. Brad enjoyed his work, not only doing welding repairs but also manufacturing some of his own ideas. Brad enjoyed fishing, hunting, playing cards, and flying his powered parachute plane. Brad passed away unexpectedly on March 15, 2014 at age 59. This scholarship in Brad’s name is awarded to Welding students.
