Bradley Long's family and the Sherrills Ford / Terrell Fire and Rescue accepted a check on behalf of the Bradley Long Memorial Fund for $4,000.00 recently. The check was presented to Bradley's family by Blair Cody on behalf of The Law Offices of Blair E. Cody, III; Patrick Laney on behalf of Catawba Insurance Agency; and Donald Robinson on behalf of the Catawba Fire Department.
Captain Bradley Long passed away in the line of service while attempting an underwater recovery of a missing person on Lake Norman on June 6, 2016. Bradley was named the Newton Elk's Firefighter of the Year in April 2016. In addition to his family, Bradley leaves behind a legacy of serving others. When asked, attorney Blair Cody said, "The Catawba Fire Department and Patrick Laney with Catawba Insurance Agency did a wonderful job putting this fundraiser together and seeing it through. We are happy to know that the dollars raised for the memorial fund will support the many projects and endeavors that Bradley held dear."
