He is survived by his son, Dillon, of St. Petersburg, Florida; his father, Wayne Mabe and step-mother Pat Mabe of High Point; his brother, Brian Mabe and sister-in-law, Angela Pearce Mabe of High Point; and his niece, Pearce Inman Mabe of High Point.

He was preceded in death by his mother, Carolyn Mabe; and sister, Lori Ann Mabe. Brad graduated from T. Wingate Andrews High School in 1979 and attended Appalachian St. University. After returning from Appalachian, Brad began his Real Estate career in the family firm at Mabe & Company, REALTORS, where, after years of learning the brokerage business, Brad and his brother Brian took over the ownership, and were named president and vice-president respectively. Having graduated from the Realtors Institute at Chapel Hill and being in the Real Estate business for over 37 years, Brad has served on numerous High Point Regional Association of Realtors (HPRAR) committees, such as finance, professional standards & the grievance committee. He was named REALTOR of the Year in 1996, Triad MLS Director & President in 1997, and Broker Owner Manager of the Year with his brother Brian in 1998. In 2000 he was elected HPRAR President and in 2018 he received the Life Member award developed by HPRAR to honor individuals who over their lifetime have served in a way that exemplified the highest level of dedication and service. Brad was an inspiration and will be remembered for his infectious smile by all who knew him. He enjoyed life, his family, and many friends and was always there to brighten the lives of others. As an avid golfer, he loved spending time with his fellow members of the Oak View Country Club (OVCC), aka The Little Club, where he served in many leadership roles including President, Secretary, and Board of Directors member. Brad loved riding his Harley, whether it was in Myrtle Beach, Daytona or at Belews Lake while enjoying the sunset. He was always the life of the party! While Brad loved his family dearly, he especially loved his brother, Brian, who was influential in guiding him in his relationship with God.
