Bradley George Sitzman, 60, of Gladstone, Missouri, passed away September 6, 2022, at North Kansas City Hospital.
Brad was born June 19, 1962, in McCook, Nebraska, the youngest of three children of Jim and Shirley Sitzman. His hometown was Culbertson, Nebraska.
In 1965, the Sitzman family moved to Kansas City from Culbertson through a work transfer of their father, Jim Sitzman. Brad remained in the Kansas City area all his life, growing up and spending the majority of his time in Liberty.
Brad graduated from Liberty High School in 1980. He served as a class officer for his senior class.
Brad started his career in auto sales in 1981 at Gary Crossley Ford, working with his brother-in-law Gary Flickinger. He worked in the industry at several Ford dealerships until his retirement. Brad won numerous top salesman awards, but his most significant accomplishment was being recognized by Ford Motor Company as one of the best, receiving the Master Salesman Award and ring.
Brad loved the Royals and the Chiefs. He and his wife Patty were long time season ticket holders to the Chiefs. He was also a diehard Huskers fan.
Brad enjoyed spending time with family and friends; golfing, hunting and softball; summer trips to Culbertson to visit grandparents on the farm and in town, aunts and uncles and cousins; summer vacations with family and business associates; attending Chiefs games with Patty, in laws Jake and Connie Pflug and Gary and Brenda. Brad loved kids and coaching his daughter Jesse’s basketball teams; watching his nephews’ baseball games. And, he and Patty loved their family pet Sheltie dogs.
We are grateful for the time God gave us with Brad, God using him to make a difference in others’ lives, to change lives. But we know and understand, with unwavering faith, this is only a temporary goodbye. We will see him again.
Brad's family thanks other family members and friends for the prayers, love and support during this difficult time. We pray you take time to enjoy the simpler things in life. They are so meaningful.
