Bradley Ross Gutek was born on March 31st, 1985 in Kelvington, Saskatchewan to his parents Gerald and Cheryle. Brad attended grade school in Kelvington and as a child developed a love for hockey, sledding and farming. After high school Brad spent some time on the oil rigs. From there Brad's love of adventure and eagerness to try new things took him to Australia and the United States where he was able to excercise his love for farming.
Bradley's journey after that lead him to Alberta where he earned his journeyman plumbing ticket which he was very proud of. Throughout Bradley's adventure his love for people and God was very bright. He was close to his Uncle Tom (Dziadek) and Auntie Gladys and that is where he met as he described as "the girl next door" and " that worked out well for me."
Bradley married his beautiful wife Karla on October 27th, 2007 in Okotoks. They were blessed with two beautiful children, Charley Mae and Marshal. On May 10th, 2012 Bradley joined Partners Development Group where he was a cherished member of the Partners team. Bradley took pride, treasured, and embraced every opportunity he had to turn over keys to new home owners, by praying and encouraging them with hope and life.
Family was a big part of Brad's life and took them on trips to Mexico, Hawaii and Terrace B.C. He also loved spending time at the family farm. Brad's passion for dirt biking brought him and the family many places as well.
