Bradley “Brad” Klotz

Bradley "Brad" Klotz - Rochester Cremation

After a valiant battle with an aggressive cancer Bradley “Brad” Klotz (63) passed away, in the early morning hours of October 1st, at Rochester General Hospital with family close at his side.

In life there was no mistaking what Brad was enthusiastic about. Not only was he passionate about the great outdoors, he was also a music aficionado, a lover of good food and was always the life of the party. He grew up in Rochester and worked at Xerox for almost thirty years. A testament to the sentiment “work hard, play hard,” when he wasn’t focused on his work, he was a dedicated father to his sons and inspired common interests in each of them.

He is predeceased by his parents Robert & Betty Klotz and his sister Barbara Klotz. He is survived by his sons Brandon Klotz, Bryan Klotz and Robert Klotz and sisters Linda (Mike) Negich, Maureen (Michael) Ryan, Teri (Steve) Ross and Rebecca (Warren) Bours.

A private family memorial will be held at a later date. In lieu of flowers, a donation in Brad’s Name to the RexFoundation or the WaterWheelFoundation would be greatly appreciated.

    I am a friend of B rad as I called him at Xerox as he was in my test group and retired from it. He helped me and I helped him outside of work as well moving with his van he had at the time. I’m shocked as to his passing and I send my deepest condolences to his family and those who knew and miss him. We had a bet about gas going over $5 a gallon, but it never happened, should’ve had the steak dinner anyway. Terrapin Station is a Grateful Dead song I will always remember him by.

    Sad to hear about Brad, he will be greatly missed. I met Brad through camping with other Xerox friends. There was an enjoyment of the outdoors, nature, and music. Attended Peach fests with Brad and Connie, which is a music festival with several days of RV camping and music. There was also a sharing of good food while camping. I will miss the food shared and cooked from his garden that would bring his relatives and friends that were tenting off the top of the mountain side. Time spent with Brad enjoying the simple basic things in life was always valued with a desire for the next or another time. My condolences to his family and friends at such a time of loss
