Bradley N. Schrack
June 06, 1943 ‒ January 26, 2015
If you asked Brad Schrack questions about the history of Richland County, he would gladly share his wealth of knowledge in regards to local genealogy. Intelligent, Brad loved to read, study and learn about the history of his home town of Lucas, as well as the surrounding communities and local farms of Richland County. A historian who appreciated the hard work and dedication of his ancestors, Brad is now at peace after passing away Monday morning, January 26, 2015 in Riverside Methodist Hospital.
The son of Charles and Virginia (Harbaugh) Schrack, Brad was born June 6, 1943 in Lucas where as a child served as a boy scout. Brad was graduated from Lucas High School in 1961. Following high school, Brad became a certified carpenter. Hard working, he operated his carpentry business, L&S Interiors, and for 26 years worked for J&B Acoustical.
Brad was a walking resource of his family’s history. Proud of his family’s heritage, through searching and studying, Brad discovered that he was a great great great grandson of David Schrack, who built the Malabar Farm Inn, in 1820, over a century before Louis Bromfield purchased the property.
Brad loved to hunt and hunted during all seasons.
He was a member of the NRA, Lucas Historical Society, Mansfield Loyal Order Moose, and Ohio Carpenters Union.
