Bradley McKaig
August 29, 1954 - August 26, 2021
Olathe, Kansas - Bradley Hoyt McKaig of Olathe entered his final rest on August 26, 2021, just three days shy of his 67th birthday. Born on August 29, 1954, he was the beloved son of Eldon Hoyt and Mary Sue McKaig (McIntire), who preceded him in death. Brad leaves behind family and friends who will remember him as a truly gifted athlete in track, baseball and basketball. Brad was a kind and thoughtful man who loved to make people laugh with his quick wit and wonderful sense of humor. He loved to entertain with clever impersonations and with stories of his adventures in Alaska. His laughter filled a room and drew people to him. Brad's three Australian Shepherds were his pride and joy. He was often seen around town, showing off their many tricks. Brad passed away peacefully in Overgaard, Arizona, in the home of his dearest friend, who was by his side during his passing. Brad is much loved and will be sorely missed. A rugged, hard working man, his labors are now done, and he rests safely in the arms of Jesus.

My parents met through a blind date set up by Brad's parents. They remained friends their entire lives. I grew up at the ball fields watching Brad or my brothers. He had a contagious laugh. I hope he is at peace.

I had known of Brad and knew his folks for years. But only become friends last few years over drinking coffee at our favorite coffee shop and restaurant. I learned things about him that made him the man him was. His first job was paper boy,he rode dirt bike ,played sports in high school,when went to college on sport scholarship ,trained for the Olympics before it got cancelled. Went on to work in oil fields Wyoming and Alaska ,as a rough neck ,of course. He was a great carpet and floor layer and his longest job of upper 20+years was working for a business in Lenexa. As I understand with out taking a sick day. I will miss Brad Greatly. I always thought of him as a man's man. I'm thankful he decided to spend eternity in Heaven. Love you Brad my friend

Brad was one of my Dad, Frank's poker buddies when I was growing up. He was at our house most Friday nights in the late 80's and early 90's. Condolences from our family.
