He was predeceased by his parents, the late Kenneth and Shirley (Thornton) Hossack.

Born in Toronto, ON, CA, raised and educated in Peterborough, ON, CA, Brad graduated with honors from the University of Guelph, where he received a Bachelor’s degree in Biological Science. He also lived in Africa from the age of 3 to 5, with his parents.

Brad began his extensive career of over 32 years in Regulatory Affairs, working in Canada with Baxter Healthcare Corporation. He was responsible for the regulations of hazardous goods and medical devices, before transferring to Baxter’s International Division and relocating to Plantation, Fla. His Baxter International career focused on regulatory affairs for the medical device business with global responsibilities in markets in Latin America, Pacific Asia, and the Middle East. Brad then joined Boston Scientific Corporation in 1998, continuing his international marker responsibilities and expansion as the Director, eventually as the Vice President of International Regulatory Affairs.

After 15 successful years at Boston Scientific, he joined Stryker Corporation as the Vice President of International Regulatory Affairs, before expanding his responsibilities to include both Regulatory Affairs and Quality for all global markets. While in Boston, he received certification from Harvard University and worked as adjunct professor for three Master’s RA courses at Northeastern University. Brad retired from his successful career in 2019 to focus on his health, family, and friends.

When he wasn’t working, he enjoyed reading, listening to podcasts, loved politics, real estate, the Great Canadian Outdoors, spending time in the sun, boating, camping, and gardening, especially. He loved the family farm, travelling, international cultures, food, and checking off his bucket list. Brad saved every animal he rescued, whether it was something he found or spared from a science project. He loved living in Shrewsbury, and also loved visiting Uberaba, Brazil, and the family farm near Peterborough, Canada.

Friends and family will remember Brad as loving, adventurous, rare, humble, successful, practical, loyal, a devoted husband, nurturing, kind, and generous; having a deep sense of humanity and a fabulous sense of humor. He was the king of sarcasm, quick wit, and self-deprecation.

Relatives and friends are invited to visit with the Hossack family on Friday, Aug. 6, from 4-6 p.m., at the Britton-Shrewsbury Funeral Home, 648 Main St., Shrewsbury, where masks will be required for all who attend, regardless of vaccination status.
