Sitzman, Bradley G.

June 19, 1962 — September 6, 2022

Bradley George Sitzman, 60, of Gladstone, Missouri, passed away September 6, 2022, at North Kansas City Hospital.

Brad was born June 19, 1962, in McCook, Nebraska, the youngest of three children of Jim and Shirley Sitzman. His hometown was Culbertson, Nebraska.

In 1965, the Sitzman family moved to Kansas City from Culbertson through a work transfer of their father, Jim Sitzman. Brad remained in the Kansas City area all his life, growing up and spending the majority of his time in Liberty.

Brad graduated from Liberty High School in 1980. He served as a class officer for his senior class.

Brad started his career in auto sales in 1981 at Gary Crossley Ford, working with his brother-in-law Gary Flickinger. He worked in the industry at several Ford dealerships until his retirement. Brad won numerous top salesman awards, but his most significant accomplishment was being recognized by Ford Motor Company as one of the best, receiving the Master Salesman Award and ring.

Brad loved the Royals and the Chiefs. He and his wife Patty were long time season ticket holders to the Chiefs. He was also a diehard Huskers fan.

Brad enjoyed spending time with family and friends; golfing, hunting and softball; summer trips to Culbertson to visit grandparents on the farm and in town, aunts and uncles and cousins; summer vacations with family and business associates; attending Chiefs games with Patty, in laws Jake and Connie Pflug and Gary and Brenda. Brad loved kids and coaching his daughter Jesse’s basketball teams; watching his nephews’ baseball games. And, he and Patty loved their family pet Sheltie dogs.

We are grateful for the time God gave us with Brad, God using him to make a difference in others’ lives, to change lives. But we know and understand, with unwavering faith, this is only a temporary goodbye. We will see him again.

Brad's family thanks other family members and friends for the prayers, love and support during this difficult time. We pray you take time to enjoy the simpler things in life. They are so meaningful.

Survivors include his wife, Patty (Pflug) Sitzman; children, Jesse Sitzman (Zach Vilante) and Jimmy Sitzman (Lawrence March); siblings, Brenda Flickinger (Gary) and Brian Sitzman; nephews, Justin Sitzman, Travis Sitzman, Blake Flickinger and Eric Flickinger, as well as other family members and friends.

My condolences to your family, Jimmy.

Patty,Jesse,Jimmy and Brian; Words fail me with Brad’s passing. I’m positive that he’s getting a kick out of it as he was always telling us to shut up. Us and Joe Buck. Brad’s special gift in conversation was he could tell it like it is and throw in some Don Rickles to smooth things out. One of the best partners a sarcastic guy could have as he would say how much ammunition they give him. Brad was serious about family and the journey that brought him to all of us. Seriously loyal and generous to all. Brad, I’ll see you soon enough so don’t lock me out. Your Brothers at Prairie View.

Growing up in the neighborhood, only a few houses apart, Jesse and I became inseparable. Our families became friends and we truly lived the good ol’ life. Brad and Patty treated me like their own while growing up, teaching Jesse and I life lessons like don’t get caught with fireworks on the front step. My best memory of Brad is when Jessie and I were playing basketball in the driveway one night. The neighbor complained the next day, and Brad happened to be there. The next thing you know, here comes Brad down the street with his loud riding lawnmowers. Brad drove that thing in circles in front of our neighborhoods house. I am truly sorry for Patty, Jes and Jim. You guys have always had a place in my families heart, and Brad will always be remembered as the cool dad who drove cool cars home, always impressing us kids. RIP Brad. You did your job. You created an amazing and successful family who is strong. To all the Sitzmans and family, you are all in our prayers as we know how much Brad touched everyone’s lives that he met. With all our love- Roady family
