Last year, Don’s Bay Area Painting celebrated 15 years in business as a house painter in Brandon, FL. Don Murray, Owner and Operator of the family business, knows it would not have been possible to have his own business without the selfless service of Heroes that live and serve in the Tampa Bay area and in the utter most parts of the world. So, as a way to celebrate 15 years in business, Murray decided to honor and thank all military veterans and first responders by offering to paint the home of a local Hero in need.

Don Murray made a way for local Heroes to submit their story and their need for help painting their house. Many times family members or loved ones submitted on behalf of their Hero, because they knew he would be too selfless to ask for a free services from someone. Once all the applications were submitted, Don set out to find an exemplary Hero to acknowledge, honor and thank on behalf of all Heroes.

Meet Major Joseph Brod, USAF, Retired

Many residents of Brandon, FL may already know the local Hero by the name of “Mr. Brod”, because he has been a Physics teacher at Bloomingdale High School in Hillsborough County for the past 23 years. But his heroic service didn’t start there. In fact, Brod became a Physics teacher soon after retiring as a Major from 20 years of service in the United States Air Force.

Don chose to honor Major Joseph Brod, USAF, Retired with a free exterior house painting because of Brod’s commitment to serve his Country and his community. Brod, like the many other Heroes selflessly serving in the Military and as Police Officers, Firefighters, First Responder Paramedics and Teachers; has had a direct and indirect impact on many lives.

We were told the story of the last time Mr. Brod painted his house in Brandon, FL. It took him two summers to prepare and paint the house all on his own. Painting a home in Florida during the summer can be exhausting. Although he did a mighty fine job painting his home years ago, the Florida heat, humidity and rain took a toll on the paint which made it necessary to be painted, again.

Don Murray and his painters appreciated the opportunity to “give back” as a way to celebrate 15 years in business and to recognize Heroes like Major Joseph Brod, USAF, Retired that enable small businesses like Don’s Bay Area Painting. Don’s painters used PPG paint generously donated by Eammon Doyle of PPG Paints in Tampa to paint the Brod’s home.
