Brad Robert Lasher, 45, of Jackson Springs and formerly NY, passed suddenly on Saturday, July 4th.
Born in Auburn, NY, in the fall of 1974, he was the son of the late E. Robert & Margaret Ann (Coleman) Lasher. Brad, affectionately known to his friends as “Gump”, was a graduate of Auburn High School, class of 1993. In December of 1993 he met Jayme Seacor, the two started dating and in December of 1997, the two married. As a young man Brad had worked on his godfather’s Tree Farm. He had served on the board for the Central New York Tomato Festival, an event held each year to raise funds for local food pantries. In 2017, Brad, Jayme and their children, moved to the Sandhills where they settled in Jackson Springs. He had worked for Pate’s Hardware and later joined the team at the Village of Pinehurst.
Brad enjoyed golfing, baking, grilling & he was the life of the party; one of the first on the dance floor for the electric slide. He was the type of person who was the first to give a lending hand to help with whatever needed to be done from flooring to volunteering at the clambakes & chicken BBQ’s. Brad was a member of the Sons of the American Legion and enjoyed spending time at the S.K. Post.
He loved spending time with his family & friends, friends have always been his family. He knew no strangers. Brad loved teasing, harassing and bear hugging his children & nieces Courtney, MacKenzie & Danica, nephews Chuyler & Lucas & Goddaughter Julianna.
Brad was the loving husband of Jayme Lasher. He is survived by their children: Robert, Nathen and Madyson Lasher. He was the brother of Todd Lasher, wife Breta, of Laurel Hill and Chris Lasher, wife Tonya, of NY. He is also survived by his mother-in-law Carol Peters who lovingly called him Bradsky and sisters-in-law Alison and Taylor Madill. Brad leaves behind many caring Aunts, Uncles, nieces, nephews, cousins and friends. He was predeceased by an infant son, Robert E. Lasher; paternal grandparents Ernest (Ernie) R. & June Morris Lasher; maternal grandparents Chuyler (Bus) & Margaret Bachman Coleman and his Godfather, William Forbes.
Brad’s family would like to thank the Village of Pinehurst, the many family & friends that have reached out to them to provide endless support and meals. Jayme expresses her heart felt gratitude for all the love and support from her work family at Moore Regional Hospital’s Women & Children’s unit.
The family will be holding a private butterfly release in celebration of Brad’s life.
Those who desire may make memorial donations to Hospice, they were very near and dear to Brad’s heart as they cared for his father.
