“It is with sadness that we have learned of the passing of one of The Empire’s owners, Brian Bradley, following a snowmobile accident yesterday.

While the Empire remains in the care of committed ownership, Brian’s touch will certainly be missed, as will his smile and wonderfully positive outlook.”
