Bradley J. Thacker was born November 11, 1958 in Wichita, Kansas to Tommie and Mary (Koop) Thacker and passed away Thursday, July 23, 2020 at the Weatherford Regional Hospital at the age of 61 years, 8 months, and 22 days. Brad was raised and attended school in Weatherford, Oklahoma and graduated with the class of 1977. After graduating from high school Brad joined his father, Tommie, laying bricks for many years. If you drive through town you will see many buildings they have bricked together. Brad would say with pride that his house was one of the last to be bricked by them. There were times Brad took a break from brick masonry to be a Weatherford Fireman, a SWOSU police officer and with Chesapeake Energy for several years. His heart was always laying bricks with his father. On June 5, 1987, he married Belinda Roles and they made their home in Weatherford, Oklahoma. Brad loved being outdoors, hunting, fishing, shooting guns, and camping. He loved motorcycles and owned his dream Fat Boy Harley. Brad always owned a dog or two. His furry faithful friend Toby will miss his loving owner.
Brad is survived by his wife, Belinda Thacker; mother, Mary Thacker; one brother, Tom Thacker; mother-in-law, Sue Roles, all of Weatherford, OK; one brother-in-law, Clint Roles, of Oklahoma City, OK; many uncles, aunts, two nieces, two nephews, many cousins and his sidekicks Tim and Sammy Entz. He was preceded in death by his father, Tommie Thacker; one unborn baby angel; and both sets of grandparents.
