Bradley Wayne Bybee, age 41, passed away Oct. 11, 2017 after a yearlong struggle with cancer. Brad was born on June 13, 1976 in Big Rapids.
During his illness, Brad continued to be a man of great faith and strength, and he lived his life devoted to his family. He ministered to others by his example.
Those who knew Brad admired his creativity. He was often seen playing silly songs on his guitar to his children, making them laugh with his funny voices and letting them know how beautiful and special they were to him.
Brad was the director of sales and marketing for Keen Technical Solutions in Traverse City. He enjoyed the challenge of his job and appreciated the support he received from his company during his illness.
