Bradly ‘Dudley’ Einspahr
It is with much sadness that we announce the passing of Bradly Einspahr, on July 17, 2019, age 58, as a result of complications from surgery at Bryan hospital in Lincoln Nebraska.
Brad was born in Imperial Jan. 23, 1961 to Rodney and Lorraine Einspahr and was known to most by his childhood moniker “Dudley.” He graduated from Chase County High School in 1979 and attended Coe College in Cedar Rapids, Iowa before taking some time off to explore life.
He ultimately returned to Kearney State College where he received a degree in chemistry. He subsequently went to graduate school in Omaha where he earned a Doctorate from UNMC College of Pharmacy.
Brad was a chemist, mud jacker, construction foreman, cook, software programmer, IT specialist, fireworks manufacturer, Lyft driver and a lifelong critic of anything and everything. Brad explored and truly experienced life.
Though not always successful, he was never afraid to admit it. He was always blunt in his assessments, never pulled punches or sugar-coated any of his criticisms. He also never hid his own shortcomings or faults and frequently was the first to point these out.
Everyone that had the fortune of knowing Brad will be able to immediately smile or laugh at a memory. He worked his way into your life when you least expected it and often disappeared just as unexpectedly.
Dudley also had a knack for getting things done in either the most circuitous but interesting way or in the most complicated and unlikely way.
He enjoyed many hobbies and was an accomplished glassblower and photographer. He particularly liked taking photographs of people, catching them at their most candid moments.
He was skilled at computer programming and enjoyed writing programs in code. He also loved listening to music for relaxation and had an extensive collection of music on vinyl.
He will be remembered for many things, but his laugh and love for his family will be remembered most of all. One always hopes to depart this life leaving the world a better place. In that regard, Dudley’s crowning achievement was his Daughter Kali (Chase) Adkisson of Johnstown, Colorado and two precious grandchildren Elyse and Lincoln.
He is survived by his roommate of three years and mother of 58 years, Lorraine “ Momo“ Einspahr, his childhood partner in mischief, brother Daniel Brent “Joe”(Kim) of Doniphan, his beloved but mistreated sister, Tori (David) Klima of Willmar, Minnesota and many cousins, nieces and nephews.
His father, Rodney, of Imperial, preceded him in death.
A graveside service was held on July 20, at Mount Hope Cemetery in Imperial.
