Quinn David Brady

Brady, Quinn

    Quinn David Brady died suddenly on July 17 at home in Kansas City, KS. Quinn was born April 16, 1992, in Carbondale, Ill., to Anne Brady Bloos and Mark David Wiebe. He grew up in Overland Park and Roeland Park. 

     Quinn and his brother Noah were active in the LEARN homeschool group, where they formed many close friendships. When he was 16, he started taking classes at Johnson County Community College as part of his high school education. After graduating in 2010 he took a solo trip to Alaska, underwent EMT training and began taking classes at UMKC. He has worked at Johnson County Library since 2012.     

      Quinn loved his family, his friends, his work, all cats, the Royals, the Chiefs, the Jayhawks, extreme weather, Warren Zevon music, history, irreverent humor, facts about obscure diseases, and very sour candy. He could quote at length from episodes of The Simpsons and enjoyed exploring the Quindaro Ruins, tromping the woods of Swope Park with Noah, and camping in Colorado. In May, Quinn was engaged to Casi Bjorgaard and the two planned to marry next June. 

      Quinn was preceded in death by his grandfather, David Wiebe, and cousin, Madrona Hartford. He is survived by his parents, his brother, Noah Brady, grandparents Ken and Luanne Bloos of St. John, IN, grandparents Wanda and Hal Lowenstein of Kansas City, grandmother Leslie Young and aunt Katy Young of Kansas City, aunt Melinda Bloos and uncle Aaron Lisec of Anna, Ill., aunt Chris Wiebe and cousins Sorrel, Amber and Wren of Bellingham, WA, fiancee Casi Bjorgaard of Kansas City, KS, many beloved friends, relatives, colleagues, cats Salvy and Oso (of the home), and 18-year-old diabetic cat, Alice.  

      Family and friends will gather to celebrate Quinn’s life later this summer. For those who wish to honor his memory, we suggest a donation to your local humane society or animal shelter, the Arbor Day Foundation, or the Friends of Johnson County Library in his name.

    I first met Quinn when he started working at the Corinth Library and was happy to have him as a co-worker again when he moved over to the Antioch branch. I have always enjoyed chatting with him, he was such a kind person and I will miss seeing his smiling face.

    Quinn was such a great person, I will never forget the all of the jokes he had that made no sense but made the whole table burst into laughter, even though we didn’t spend much time together, the time we had I will never forget.. quinn, you will always be my brother in law and I will always cherish the time we spent together, just like when you showed up to the wedding in cowboy boots and by George you were sure bound determined to wear them and the way you walked up the stairs was unforgettable.. quinn, you may have “left” us but you will never truly leave us. We love you quinn..

    I worked with Quinn for the last two years at the Antioch library and will miss him dearly. He always had a smile on his face and kindness in his voice.
