Rosse (Brad) Braddock Case II

May 13, 1953 — July 2, 2024


Rosse (Brad) Braddock Case II, age 71, passed away due to injuries following a fall on July 2, 2024. Brad is survived by his husband, William M. McMechen, his mother Janice Case, his sisters Tammy Stone (J.L. Stone) and Teresa Nielsen (Joe Nielsen) and nieces, many 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.


Brad was born in Marion, Kansas, on May 13, 1953 and was the son of Rosse B. and Janice (Socolofsky) Case. He grew up in Marion, attended Marion High School, and then Kansas State University, where he was a proud member of the Beta Theta Pi fraternity. Brad graduated from Kansas State University in 1975 with a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration (cum laude) with a major in accounting.


After graduation, Brad 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 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 Corporation 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 & 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 & 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 at Saint John’s Cathedral on August 9, 2014.


Brad had a love for life. He enjoyed travel, outdoor activities, gardening, and he especially loved his family and friends. A service will be held for Brad 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 Cathedral.
