The man. The myth. The legend. Men wanted to be him and women wanted to be with him (or so he’d tell you). Brad was born May 19, 1975, to John and Nelda Martens Schreiman. He grew up in Alma, attended Trinity Lutheran school, and graduated from Santa Fe High School in 1993. During high school he was a basketball star, an average student, the popular guy, and a budding Coors Light connoisseur.
Brad loved being with family and friends, spending time at the Lake of the Ozarks, being on a golf course, the Kansas City Royals, the Missouri Tigers, Arizona for spring training, country music and a great meal.
During his career he founded, built and ran a successful automotive transportation company. Brad was adored by his work family and business associates … “Heaven gained the best boss a man could ask to work for in my life” … “he was an awesome man and one of the nicest people I’ve had the pleasure to work with” … “he was a great boss and friend and brother to me and my family.”
Throughout his life Brad created an amazing legion of friends. To know Brad was to love him. He truly made our world a better place. No one else could walk into a room, start throwing insults, and then be embraced with love, laughter, and hugs.
Brad is survived by his loving and loyal girlfriend, Jessica Hill; his dad, John Schreiman and wife Judy; two brothers, Dave (Jenny) Schreiman, and Scott (Rori) Schreiman; two sisters, Beth Brackman and Jenny Fisher; a step brother, Eric (Jeri) Long; a grandmother, Estherlene Schreiman; several nieces, nephews, aunts, uncles and cousins.
Brad was preceded in death by his beloved mom, Nelda Schreiman. They embraced at the pearly gates and Brad proceeded to start razzing her, again.
If you would like to contribute in Brad’s memory, sign up to be a bone marrow donor or, get this, Brad would be honored if you donated to the University of Kansas Cancer Center Blood and Marrow Transplant team. The life-long Mizzou Tiger fanatic received world-class care at KU Med. He told Jessica, “these folks are taking such good care of me I guess I can’t hate KU as much anymore.”
