‘Brad’ Case

Services for Rosse Braddock “Brad” Case II, 71, who passed away after being injured in fall July 2, 2024, are pending.

Brad was born May 13, 1953, in Marion to Rosse B. and Janice (Socolofsky) Case.

He grew up in Marion, attended Marion High School, and then attended Kansas State University, where he was a proud member of the Beta Theta Pi fraternity.

Brad graduated from Kansas State in 1975 with a bachelor’s degree in business administration (cum laude) with a major in accounting.

After graduation, he started his accounting career in Kansas City with Haskins and Sells as a staff accountant.

Soon, however, he was beckoned by the Colorado mountains, where he and his family had spent summer vacations and winter skiing trips.

He moved to Breckenridge, Colorado, in 1977 and lived and worked in Summit County until he moved to Denver in 1993.

During his time in Breckenridge, Brad worked for the Breckenridge Ski Corp. as an accounting manager and became an expert skier.

Brad then worked in Denver as an accountant for Boston Chicken Inc., McClain Finlon Advertising, American Life and Health Insurance Corporation, and the Gill Foundation.

Brad retired in December of 2021.

Brad became a member of Saint John’s Cathedral (Episcopal) after moving to Denver.

Over the years, he participated in many volunteer positions such as acolyte, dean’s verger, building and grounds commission, gardening commission, arts and architecture, flower team, and altar guild.

Brad met his husband, William, at Saint John’s while serving on the building and grounds commission. They received their marriage blessing August 9, 2014, at Saint John’s Cathedral.

Brad had a love for life. He enjoyed travel, outdoor activities, and gardening. He especially loved his family and friends.

Brad is survived by his husband, William M. McMechen; his mother, Janice Case; his sisters, Tammy Stone (and husband J.L.) and Teresa Nielsen (and husband Joe); and nieces, grandnieces, grandnephews and cousins.

He was preceded in death by his father.

Brad will be sorely missed by his family and the many kind, loving, and generous friends who made his life so very joyous.

A service will be held at Saint John’s when arrangements have been finalized.

In lieu of flowers, the family invites you to make a memorial gift to Saint John’s.
