Bradley Alan Bennett, age 52, of North Platte, Neb., passed away at his home June 13, 2013, after a lengthy battle with cancer.

Brad was born Dec. 10, 1960, in Garden City, Kan., to Harold and Barbara (Griffith) Bennett. He grew up in Scott City, Kan., and graduated with the class of 1978. He joined the Marines right after high school. After his discharge he returned to Kansas and worked in construction, IBP and manufacturing.

On Aug. 18, 1987, he married Amy Morgan in Scott City, Kan. Brad managed a feed mill before the family moved to North Platte in 1992. He worked for Ron Stahla Construction, then North Platte Feeders as a feed mill manager and the family moved to Wallace. In 2006, Brad hired on the UPRR as a switchman and the family moved back to North Platte. He had to quit work at the UPRR due to health reasons.

Brad was an avid fisherman. He later enjoyed auctions and trading on EBay. He liked watching NCIS and the Huskers on TV. Brad was a man who could have a strong will but would do anything for his family and friends.
