Some quick background on the infamous Brad Farmer? Well, he was born and raised in Casper, WY, where the Medicine Bow National Forest meets the Great Plains. After many years in the big cities, he finds himself back in Casper. Brad is the middle of five kids. (In order of age, they are Brenda, Brian, Brad, Brent, and Brittany… He’s the Brad in the middle.) At an early age his father taught him that “Farmers are out- standing in their field,” and Brad strives to be no exception. When he was young, Brad dreamed of being an astronaut. Now he tries to conquer gravity in a different manner. Once in his life, and only once, Brad went to a professional barber. (And that was when he was the ring-bearer in his uncle Mike’s wedding. Mom insisted.) Brad met Gene in seventh grade CCD class – who would have ever guessed then that the seeds were being sown that would eventually lead to the formation of APeX? Brad currently lives in Casper, WY with his beautiful wife, Joia, three superhero sons, Jack, Caedmon, & Simon, and “Daddy’s Little Empress”, Ava. Regarding his spirituality, Brad says, “God is my very best friend and I am constantly in awe of Him. I try to be conscious of His presence in every moment, and celebrate the abundant life He has given me.” As far as his dreams for the future and his personal goals, he dreams there is a future and his goal is to make it there someday. Brad is an avid student and huge fan of CS Lewis, GK Chesterton, Thomas Aquinas, Theresa of Avila, and Philip Neri.
