Brad W. Rodrigues 48, of Old Forest Road, Marlow, NH, passed away at his home in Marlow, on Saturday, November 26, 2016, after a brief struggle, following a sudden diagnosis of cancer.

He was born in Attleboro, MA on October 24, 1968, the son of David and Linda J. (Sherman) Rodrigues. He grew up in Norton, MA and attended Norton High School.

Brad's love for automobiles found him learning the trade of auto body fixing, building, painting and detailing. He learned with hands on training at a very early age and worked many years of his life as an auto body technician. In later years he took his creativity to auto body painting. A few certificates he received were: the Sanel Auto Parts Co. Refinish Training course, PPG Refinish Training course, Devil Biss Refinish Solutions Training, among a few others.

A resident of Marlow for the past thirteen years, Brad worked in auto body painting, detailing and repairs with the Stan's Auto Body of Keene, NH, and most recently, with Garner Auto Body of Swanzey, NH.

Brad's creative talents spread far beyond the detailing of automobiles. He was an incredible artist, creating beautiful drawings, his favorites were bald eagles. Brad also enjoyed the martial arts, which he learned at a young age and kept up with throughout his adult life. He enjoyed building and detailing remote control vehicles, as well as putting together model vehicles. He was an animal lover, especially dogs and fish. Being great with his hands, Brad could fix anything mechanical as well as woodworking and building.

He will be greatly missed by his daughter, Katelynn E. Rodrigues, of North Attleboro, MA; Joshua Patterson of North Attleboro who he loved and cared for as a son; his parents of Swanzey, NH; his brothers and sister, Jody Duhaime and her husband, Mark, of Swansea, MA, Toby Rodrigues of Keene, NH, Lannie Rodrigues of Attleboro; and a niece, Nicole Duhaime.

A celebration of Brad's life will be held on Monday, December 5, 2016 from 11:00AM to 2:00PM in the Foley Funeral Home, 49 Court Street, Keene.
