Thank you for your generous GoFundMe donations in honor of my sweet husband! We are overwhelmed at your support! Because of you, the Zettler Family  is able to provide seed funding for four years of the annual “LiveLoud” Brad Zettler Scholarship award.

But I want to keep going, so I share the following with you.



In June 2019, Brad decided to step away from Takeda pharmaceuticals after a 20+ year career and became a franchise owner at IceBox cryotherapy.   He sought flexibility after countless years of travel, wanting to be home for Blake and Brayden and pursue other interests aligned with his personal values and desire to serve the community.   With Icebox, Brad found the unique ability to do both.  He could channel his energy into developing the youth in our community through coaching and lend his natural talents as the visionary leader of the Milton Touchdown Club, serving as its President. For a servant leader like Brad, it allowed him to live out his values. It allowed him to “LiveLoud”.


For the last three years, Brad spent countless hours and most days, every Thursday and Friday night on the football field.   He shared in the vision of making Milton Football a national powerhouse while creating a unique experience for each member of the Milton High School football team.   He dreamed big!  One specific project that Brad envisioned making a reality is the installation of a team meeting room in the field house.   This room would be capable of sitting the full team and offering an ideal environment to teach and reinforce the culture of Milton Football  (BET: Brotherhood, Effort, Toughness).


Many of you have asked me what you can do to honor his legacy.  A donation to the Milton Football Touchdown Club (a non-profit, tax deductible 501c3), would help make Brad’s dream a reality.   A project of this nature cannot be done with Fulton County school funds and would need to be supported through the Milton Football Touchdown Club.   Your contribution would provide critical resources that would be dedicated solely to the construction of the field house meeting room.   

Our goal is to raise $90,000.

I’d like to share some of Brad’s own words in a message to his football family (“his boys”) in March 2021 regarding his battle with ocular melanoma.

Happy Saturday. This is not a football-specific note but one I’ve tried to type a few times. And today is the day. What it isn’t….a sad or poor Brad post. Or a request for anything (beyond thoughts and prayers). We are good! What it is. A reminder to frickin' Live Loud and go aggressively towards anything that we want. I think about “my boys” daily (actually more) and I want to make sure they understand a sense of urgency to set crazy goals and work daily towards them! Aggressively attacking them…….Do not sit on the sidelines of life. Frickin go!

Please join me in honoring my husband. Let’s go! Let’s LiveLoud! Let’s make the meeting room a part of Brad’s legacy and bring his dream to life!
