Hermes, 2 1/2|
Bradan James Hermes, age 2 1/2, of Hartford, went to the arms of Jesus
on Sunday, April 14, 2013, surrounded by his loving family at home.
Bradan was born July 3, 2010, in West Bend to Roy and Monica (née
Schoen) Hermes. In January of this year, Bradan was diagnosed with a
very rare cancer which he battled heroically. Bradan had the calmest,
sweetest, gentlest demeanor, with a twist of mischief, goofiness and
lots of giggles. His short life strongly impacted everyone around him,
including people he’s never met. He will forever be cherished and
Bradan is survived by his loving parents, Roy and Monica; his happy baby
sister, Livia; and his adoring grandparents, Theresa “Grandma T” Olson
of Beaver Dam, Kevin Schoen of Madison, Sue “Grandma Woo” Schneider of
Madison, and many first and second aunts, uncles, and cousins. He is
preceded in death by his Grandpa Jimmy Hermes.
A memorial service for Bradan will be Sunday, April 21, 2013, at 7 p.m.
at Northbrook Church, 4014 Highway 167 West, Richfield, with the Rev.
Bob Boerner officiating. The family will greet family and friends from
3:30-7 p.m. at the church.
The Shimon Funeral Home is assisting the family. Online condolences can
