Madison - Bradley J. Marlow, age 54, passed away unexpectedly on October 15, 2013.

Brad was born on June 20, 1959 in Madison to Dr. Gordon and Ina Marlow. He graduated from Madison West High School in 1978 and the University of Wisconsin-Madison in 1987. He was united in marriage to Kristin Woehler on December 29, 1993.

Brad spent most of his career as a self-employed builder and carpenter. He was a skilled woodworker and artist, and spent countless hours creating lovingly crafted pieces in his father's home workshop. Brad loved the outdoors and deer hunted with high school friends near Barneveld for many years. He also enjoyed fishing and passed many a winter Sunday out at the "shanty" watching the tip-ups and swapping stories.

Brad is survived by his three beloved children: James, 22, Maggie, 19, and Molly, 15; sister Jenelle (Don) Gors; brother Scott; both of Madison; brother John of New Canaan, CT and half-brother Tracy of Darien, CT; four nieces, four nephews, many other relatives and numerous friends. He was preceded in death by his parents, Gordon and Ina Marlow.

A memorial service will be held at a later date.
