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.
