Brad Still

The service on Tuesday is open to public attendance and those in attendance will be encouraged to practice social distancing. You will be able to sit in the bleachers or stay in your car and park in the rodeo arena.

Brad Eldon Still, 55 of Mt. Ayr, IA, passed away at Greater Regional Hospice House in Creston, IA on May 9, 2020. Brad fought a short but valiant battle with anaplastic thyroid cancer. Brad was born January 18, 1965 in Mt. Ayr IA, the son of Eldon and Frances “Anne” (Garrity) Still.

He graduated from Grand Valley Community School in 1983. Brad married his high school sweetheart Cherrye Woodard on June 11, 1983 and to this union was born three boys whom he was incredibly proud of:   Brandon James (11/26/87), Brock Eldon (3/18/90), Brian Carroll (10/2/91). Brad married Christina Shields on October 28, 2012 and welcomed three stepchildren to his family: Trevor Michael, Charlcey Ann and Macey Kay.

Brad loved his family, farming, gardening, being a dad and grandpa. He will be remembered by his boisterous voice and laughter and sharing his belief of the word of God. At his passing, Brad was an active member at the Family Worship Center in Kellerton, IA and was baptized at Little River.

Brad is survived by his wife Christy, sons Brandon (Danielle) Still, Brock (Makenzie) Still, Brian (Tessa) Still; stepchildren Trevor Gooding (Mady Henson) and Macey Bowen; six granddaughters Kambreigh Shae, Aspen Celae, Collins Caroline, Isabella Sue, Whitley Grace and baby girl 2020. Brad is also survived by his sister Beth Combs of Marion, IA; stepmother Janice Still; his father-in-law Bart Shields; sister-in-law Lanette (Vince) Schaller; brother-in-law Joshua (Julie) Shields; stepbrother Randy (Athena) Simpson of Franklin, TN; step sister-in-law Christi Simpson of Corning, IA; and a host of nieces, nephews and extended family and friends.

Brad was preceded in death by his father (2017); mother (2009); stepfather LeRoy Wilmes (2019); mother-in-law Barb Shields (2012); stepdaughter Charlcey Bowen (2011); stepbrother Tim Simpson (2011); and brother-in-law Mike Combs (2018).

A memorial fund has been established in his name to be decided later.

"For I reckon that the sufferings of this present time are not worthy to be compared with the glory which shall be revealed in us. For I am persuaded, that neither death, nor life, nor angels, nor principalities, nor powers, nor things present, nor things to come" Romans 8:18, 28 kjv

My thoughts and prayers are with Brad's family. I had the privilege of meeting Brad and he will be missed by everyone who knew him. Brad endured and kept the faith until the end and I know he has been welcomed into heaven. I am so sorry for your loss. May God comfort you in this time of trial.
