Bradley Weinholtz


Bradley S. Weinholtz, 57, died Monday, March 18, at UCI Medical Center surrounded by family and friends.  He will be fondly remembered for his unconditional love of family, his humor and his extremely positive outlook on life every day.

He was born in Los Angeles, California to Harold and Linda Weinholtz on September 30, 1961.   Brad is survived by his wife, Deborah, daughter Lindsey Weinholtz, son Ian Weinholtz, sisters Marla (Mike) Zack and Rebecca (Aaron) Samson, brother Dr. Michael (Crescent) Carlish, Brother-in-law Mike Smith, Sister-in-law, Pam Smith, step sisters Jennifer Wetzel and Joelle Jarvis, twenty-one nieces and nephews, uncle Marshall Frey, step father Dr. Ronald Carlish and numerous cousins, and many, many friends.


He graduated from California State University Northridge with a degree in marketing.  He pursued a career in Sales and Marketing and loved his work.  At the time of his death he was a Senior Marketing Manager at Newegg, Inc.  During his career in Marketing, he also worked for Guitar Center, Inc., Bridgecraft, Inc., and Somma Mattress,Inc.  Besides working in corporate America, Brad was an entrepreneur and co-owned BradlyGold Home for almost a decade.  He was blessed to have worked for some amazing companies and made many friends within each industry he worked in.


He was very creative in many ways, a forward thinker always thinking outside the box. His creativity spanned from BradleyGold Home upholstery design to the Glen Burton Guitar line to writing songs and much more.


He was a great musician and was also a member of SAG and AFTRA and pursued an acting career in the early 90’s.  His love of performing started when he was in high school and continued throughout his life.  Recently his musical talents could be seen and heard annually when he and his latest band played at the Orange County Fair as well as the local Relay for Life.  Typically, on a Sunday morning you would find him playing at the local coffee shop.  A couple of years ago, Brad wrote, performed, produced, and self-published an original album titled, ”Alive at 55”.


One of his greatest character strengths was his sense of humor and the ability to make people laugh.  You could be having a very serious conversation and he could lighten up the room fairly quickly.  As an observational humorist he could see humor in everyday life and didn’t hesitate to share his observations.  Not only was he a fun-loving man, he was kind, caring and loved his family especially his wife and children.  He inspired and touched the lives of all who were fortunate to know him.


In lieu of flowers the family requests all donations be made to the, We Love You Brad, Go Fund Me campaign or the Orange County Relay for Life.

Entrusted to the care of Cremation Society of Orange Coast (800) 678-0669.
