Killen, Bradford L.


Bradford Lanier Killen, 18, of Dallas, Texas was killed tragically while studying in Prague on Saturday, June 23, 2012.

Brad was born to Dr. Kenneth and Ann Killen, August 5, 1993 in Dallas, Texas. He graduated from Highland Park High School in 2011 and completed his first year at the University of Texas studying Philosophy. Brad was a gifted individual, beloved brother, son and friend. A talented musician and scholar, Brad enjoyed discovering new music, reading a variety of literature, and exploring new places. But he especially relished his time spent around the people he loved. Honest and kind, unique and sincere, he was a rare individual positively affecting those he met. He loved in such a pure and visceral way that it was awe-inspiring, and he will be forever missed.

Brad is survived by his parents, brothers Bo and Jake, and a multitude of friends and family.

I received the email HPISD sent out about Bradford. We never met. In fact, I didn’t even know he existed until a few minutes ago, probably because he is six years older than me. I am so sorry for your loss. Please accept my condolences.
