ALWAYS A TORNADO BROTHER-- GONE TOO SOON!
The Indianapolis Tornados are mourning the loss of another brother of the gridiron.
Aaron Jefferson “AB” Bridges, 34, Indianapolis, passed away September 2, 2016. He was born October 23, 1981, in Huntsville, Alabama, the son of David C. and Lynda (Thorp) Bridges.
Aaron was employed by Samsung as a product representative and was a 1999 graduate of Lawrence Central High School, lettering in football and wrestling.

He enjoyed spending time with his friends, going to concerts, working out, grilling out, gardening, playing Hilltop Sports Flag Football and being with his family and the family pets, and his chocolate labrador, Puzzle.
He is survived by his parents, David and Lynda Bridges; sister, Jamie Bridges; grandmother, Loretta Bridges; and several aunts, uncles, and cousins. He was preceded in passing by his grandparents, George Bridges and James Jr. and Katherine Thorp.
