Ho-Ho-Kus NJ, Bradley W. Post, 46, of Ho-Ho-Kus, passed away on May 18, 2019 in a tragic plane crash off the coast of Roatán, Honduras.  He was off on another one of his adventures, this time to learn how to fly fish. Brad was born in Ridgewood, NJ on January 8, 1973 (he shared a birthday with Elvis; he would want you to know that).  Brad grew up in Ramsey and Saddle River and graduated from Ramsey High School in 1991. After earning a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration from Boston University in 1995, he would spend the next 24 years “insuring anything that had wheels and carried people – charter buses, school buses, limos, taxis and paratransit.”  Brad and his brother, Tom, were the fourth generation to own and operate Post Financial Services Group. Their younger brother, Garrett, later joined them at the firm. They purchased the family business from their father in 2003 and continued to grow it until they sold to Hilb Group in 2016. Brad had recently joined the Board of Directors and been named the Regional Leader for Hilb Group, Tri-State.
