My heart felt feelings go out to the family's loss. I also worked with Brad and Charles "Stick" Stickler. Brad was an amazing, superb "Craftsman" who always strived to do his best in what ever he took on. What else can you say about the caliber of an already great person? Other than he will be sadly missed.
Our thought and prayers for his family. Brad was my best friend. I met Brad the day he stepped foot aboard the USS DULUTH LPD-6. It was the year 1977, so long ago but feels like yesterday. We were both assigned to the #2 or known also as the aft engine room. Brad and I worked side by side on a lot of the equipment in the aft engine room. After 2 years in the hole as we called it we both wanted a change . We studied for the 3rd class petty officer Engine-man test, which we passed. We both went top side where I went into HVAC and Brad got his start in hydraulics. Him and I created many memories on and off the ship. We traveled together many times from Southern California to Northern California where he met my family of 12. Mom,Dad, my brother and 8 sisters. Brad was like a brother to me. Brad this is for you ! Thank you for touching my life so many years ago! Your kindness, laughter, sense of humor, friendship met the world to me. You will forever be my best friend and brother. I miss you buddy. Until we meet again ! Rest In Peace my friend

From the Jones Family 👐 we are sending comforting arms and shoulders and healing prayers 🙏 I met Brad at TRFKB NAVAL SUBMARINE BASE WATERFRONT CODE 302 as a Civilian Administrative Assistant 🙏 while employed from May 2002 to December 2013 my retirement 🙌 Brad was always eager to share knowledgeable wisdom training and patience 👐 another good friend now 🙌 HEAVENLY REST 🙌 MISS YOU MY CO-WORKER AND FRIEND 🙌
I was always happy to hear the words" meet Brad Lunt on the boat." Not just for his professionalism, but his enthusiasm and infectious smile. The only time Brad did not greet me with a smile was the day we learned of Steve Swan's passing. Two grown men, with tears in their eyes talking about life and loss
I remember when Brad cam to work at the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard. He was assigned to the same crew as I was and he fit in from day one. Everyone liked Brad and soon came to relie on him just as much as his TIF co-workers did when he moved to the Georga Base.

When I got to Shop 38 I was looked at as a long haired Harley rider and was put with Brad to work with and quickly learned a great deal from him as he was like a walking blueprint of knowledge of Submarine repair. Worked with him on several projects for engineering certain jobs on the Boats to make job easier and more efficent in time constraints we were un der to finish jobs. He was very much a skilled craftsman and as always there for anyone who needed or asked for help. He will be missed by all at TRF and community as Brad was the type of guy you always wanted to be around just to hear his stoies and his laugh! Rest in peace my Brother, as you will be truly missed.
I had the honor of working with Brad at TRF for many years and I am grateful to have been taught by such a talented and skilled craftsmen. Brad was always patient and had time to explain anything and everything mechanical as long as you were eager to learn. He was a treasure to the command, a gem of a friend and I will miss him dearly. His classic broad Brad smile is etched in my memory and I hope that it fills your thoughts too when your heart grows sad. His wit and humor were unmatched and I still chuckle when I think of him telling of the time he and Chuck took the rental car on the race track and wound up meeting the trace car driver. A real treat for them both, but hearing him tell the story was a super treat for me. Know that he was loved and you are all loved now in his absence. Big hugs!
He was my uncle, teacher, and friend. I looked up to him in so many ways. Ill miss him greatly.
I never met Brad, but feel like I know him through my daughter, Holly. I have been told that he was a very loving, caring and generous man. My condolences to Brad's family and friends. May Brad rest in peace.
Brad grew up with my family. Brad and my brother became best of friends when they met, both laid back until they got in those fast cars 😂 Tearing up the roads. Bra was well mannered and our grandmother loved him. We all loved him and always will. We will always have our memories to hold close until we meet again.

So sorry to hear of Brads passing. He was a great man and a true friend to all he came in touch with. The world lost a kind and giving soul in Brad. He cherished his family so much and my family sends heartfelt prayers and condolences to each of you. Rest In Peace.
Bradford Edward Lunt
Bradford Edward Lunt, 60 passed away on October 19, 2021 at his family farm in Callahan, FL. Brad was born in York, Maine October 21, 1960 to Robert and Marion (Morrison) Lunt. He attended schools in both Portsmouth, NH and Eliot, ME.
In 1977 he enlisted in the US Navy and served on the USS Duluth LPD-6 stationed out of San Diego, CA. He completed two WEST PAC tours during his active duty with the man that will forever be known as his best friend, Dan Hohn. He returned to Maine and served as a US Navy reservist for many years. He began his Department of Defense career at the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard as a machinist in 1981.
In 1990 he moved with his family to Fernandina Beach, FL to begin his legacy at Trident Refit Facility, Kings Bay, Georgia. He held many positions at TRF, each contributing to his pride and duty to maintain SUBSAFE standards. His career highlights were being named Craftsman of the Year, special trips to Diego Garcia to complete work on “the boat” and when he was selected to participate in a sea trial. He loved sharing his knowledge with co-workers and the apprentices to support the development of the next generation of DoD employees. He retired from the Department of Defense as a Chief Test Engineer in January 2018 after 40 years of service.
His love of fast cars began at an early age and with friends like Ronnie McNabb and Ray Smith, the streets of Eliot were never the same. Some of his favorite vehicles were his 69’ Chevy El Camino, various Chevy Nova’s and his pride and joy, “Vision Quest” the 1929 Model -A roadster (street rod) that he built from the ground up. He enjoyed many hobbies including sailing, horses and farming, especially all things John Deere. He was looking forward to revitalizing their recently purchased 30 acre farm in Callahan, FL.
He is preceded in death by his father Robert B. Lunt and brother Perry J. Lunt.
He leaves behind his mother, Marion Lunt and sister, Patricia Walsh both of St Simons, GA; wife of 25 years Julia Irwin Lunt; his children, James Lunt and Stephanie (Will) Holt of Fernandina Beach, FL; grandchildren, Avaree and Jace Lunt and Matthew, Lauren and Katherine Holt as well as many friends.
