Bradley Michael Smith, age 48 of Hendersonville TN went home to be with the Lord on August 31, 2021.
He is survived by his loving wife of 15 years, Pepper Elizabeth Smith, his dad Larry Smith, mother Pamela Cousins Smith, brother Chad Smith, sister Shanda Smith Moore (Jeff), son Travis Bright, loving and wonderfully supportive In-Laws, several amazing nieces & nephews, and his beloved Cornerstone Church family.
Brad was born July 18, 1973 in Anderson, Indiana, and moved to Nashville in 2000. He had a radical rededication of his life to the Lord on Easter Sunday 2001 at Cornerstone Church and was faithful as a servant leader until the Lord called him home. He served as Sunday School teacher, Elder, Usher, Life Group Leader, offering count team, Vision team, Mission Team, and countless other projects and committees. While he was known for his beaming smile and his teasing nature, Brad was also very well known for his incredible work ethic. He was always eager to donate his gift of creative craftsmanship to build numerous stages and projects around the church and used his talent to build beautiful things including a beautiful custom home for his wife in 2020. But most importantly, Brad built relationships with people. He never met a stranger and poured his vast knowledge of God’s Word into others. He was a light in this broken world and was blessed with a unique gift to present the Truth in such a way that pointed others to Christ and made them desire to live their lives for Jesus. Without ceasing, he encouraged and invested time into others to be sure they felt incredibly special and extraordinarily loved. He loved God and he loved people. Brad was a trustworthy loyal friend, a man of deep convictions, a fierce warrior for Christ, and a tireless promoter of the Kingdom.
A Celebration of Brad’s life will be Tuesday, September 7th at 1 pm in the Worship Center at Cornerstone Nashville, 728 W Old Hickory Blvd, Madison, TN 37115 with Pastor Galen Davis officiating.
