Brad’s Story

When you see the name B. E. Meyers and Co, that ‘B’ stands for Brad. Unfortunately, he recently passed away. This is a tribute by B. E. Meyers & Co, to their founder.

As many of you know, my father, Brad Meyers, the founder of B.E. Meyers & Co. Inc. passed away a bit over a month ago after an amazing life. We thank everyone for the tremendously kind thoughts and notes regarding his passing, and we were so happy that at the celebration of his life over 300 folks whose lives were impact by Brad joined us at his memorial. We miss him dearly.

We worked to bring together a small video of his life for the memorial, capturing his story and his vision, which we would like to share with all of you. Bringing this video together was a labor of love, and in the process of going through his old videos and photos, we found an audio interview that had been done with Brad by my sister, Rebecca, for a college project in 2010. We thought, “Who better to narrate the story of Brad’s life than the man himself?”.

On behalf of the Meyers Family and everyone at B.E. Meyers & Co. Inc., we hope that those that watch this will all take some inspiration from Brad’s infectious enthusiasm for life, his company, and helping the end user. He was always thinking about what could be, the quest for what’s next, what hasn’t been done, or what could be done differently. B.E. Meyers is a small company that fights the big fight. Our motto is – “Build it right, Save a life”. That’s us. That is our core belief. We are in this business to help good guys put down bad guys wherever they be, and we all take pride in that mission.

As you will see from Brad’s story, “crazy” ideas can lead you down a path you didn’t know existed. He would encourage us all to never be afraid to pursue what we believe in, never stop learning, never stop being curious, and never let anyone deter your dreams. Those were his Optics of Optimism.
