Bradley Scott Crockett of Oakton, Virginia died unexpectedly on September 27, 2022. Brad was only 70 years old. The family is deeply saddened by his sudden death.
Brad was born on December 29, 1951, in Hagerstown, Maryland, to Doris and James S. Crockett, Jr. He attended Fairfax County schools, graduating from the old Fairfax High School and later from James Madison University. Brad held graduate degrees from Virginia Commonwealth University and Johns Hopkins University. He lived in and around Fairfax for most of his life, and in his earlier years, he spent lots of time in and had a deep love for Ocean City, Maryland and Rehoboth Beach, Delaware.
Brad spent most of his career engaged in commercial real estate, working with and at a variety of banks in Maryland and Virginia. Most recently he served as an independent contractor to the federal government and to private businesses related to the banking industry. He kept working because, as he described it, he loved what he did.
Everyone who knew Brad was well aware of his quirky sense of humor and his penchant for telling stories, and he had a slew of them. Brad rarely passed up an opportunity to engage in conversation, with anyone, about almost anything, but especially about commercial real estate. His friends knew well his signature sign off, “Cheers!“
Brad is survived by his mother Doris, of Fairfax; his sister Cheryl and her significant other, Boyd, of Salem, SC; his brother Mark and wife Kimberly, of Kents Store, VA; his brother Jim and wife Lou Ann, of Chantilly, VA; niece Michelle Crockett Morris and her son Sage, of Charlottesville VA; niece Ashly Dalton and her husband Alex of Denver, Co; and nephew Sean Cashwell, his wife Rachel, and their two children Olive and Eva.
A service will be held at 11 a.m. on Saturday, October 8, 2022, at Rest Haven Funeral Home 1601 Pennsylvania Ave Hagerstown, MD. Burial will follow in Rest Haven Cemetery.
