In Memory

Robert Bryan Radenz

Our friend, Bryan Radenz , passed away on November 27, 2018.  Here is the official obituary:


Robert Bryan Radenz, 65, peacefully passed away in the early morning hours of Tuesday, November 27, 2018 at his home in Katy, Texas after a brief struggle with cancer. Born on June 6, 1953 in Houston, Bryan was the younger son of the late Robert and Doris Radenz. Bryan’s adult years were enriched by the special love of his step-father, Walter Weichel.

Bryan graduated from Spring Woods High School in 1971 where he enjoyed playing baseball, then went on to receive his diploma at the University of Houston. His early employment included selling drill pipe before he got into the construction industry where he moved on to become the construction foreman for Heartland Homes, a Texas custom home builder in Katy, Bellville, Sealy, and Wharton.

His favorite pastime was spending time with his friends on his front porch, attempting to solve all the problems of the world. He also enjoyed watching baseball, collecting coins, driving in the mountains, eating barbecue, going to the gun range, and had an uncanny knack for being late to most every event. But nothing compared to the love he had for his beloved dog, Ava, who was faithfully by his side every day.

Bryan is preceded in death by his mother Doris Weichel, his father Robert A. Radenz, his brother Michael (Mickey) Radenz, and his dog Sugar. He is survived by his stepfather Walter Weichel, his sister-in-law Kathy Barry and husband Rod Barry, nieces Lindsey Radenz and son Kyle, and Allison Barentine and husband Brandon, many loving cousins and friends, and his beloved dog Ava.

He will be laid to rest at Earthman Resthaven Cemetery in Houston at a graveside memorial service on February 9, 2019 at 1:00pm. In honor of the military service of his brother, father, and grandfather, in lieu of flowers, donations can be made to Folds of Honor, Department 13, Tulsa, Oklahoma 74182 in memory of Bryan Radenz.

One of the sweetest guys I ever have had the pleasure of knowing!  Bryan was a high school friend and also a friend through the youth group at FBCSB.  My nickname for him was "Poopsie".  No idea how that started but I still remember it, and when I last saw him in 2016 I called him by that and he loved it and remembered it also!  This wonderful human left us too early, but I know his legacy lives on in special memories that so many of us have.

Bryan we shared some fun times in junior and senior high along with the FBCSB church youth group.  I remember well the time in 1968 we all went to San Antonio and sang at Hemisfair (World's Fair).  What an experience for us 15-16 year olds!  Life has a way of moving on so quickly and though we lost touch some of the years in between, I'm forever grateful for the opportunity I had to speak with you last November 2018.  You were always a good friend and you will be missed by many.  Happy trails!
