Obituary for SPC Bradley K. Kirchoff
Obituary for SPC Bradley Kirchoff Every so often a young person is taken from us that just makes you wonder if the good folks on the other side needed a soul with a high fun factor to shake things up a bit. That's certainly the case with Bradley Kirchoff, known for his quirky personality and devilish good looks, who was taken from us on May 2, 2016. May 27, 1994 was a rare, cold day when Bradley surprised everyone with his early arrival. From then on he continued to be a spontaneous spirit with the ongoing ability to surprise from his uncanny knowledge of Rick Astley lyrics, unexpectedly knocking at your door at 3 am, and being one of the most caring, genuine people you met. If you knew Bradley, you'll most likely remember him as an avid gamer, Packers fan, and someone who would gladly give you the shirt off his back. Literally. A Vincennes native, Bradley graduated from Princeton High School in 2012 where he was well-known as a long haired skater boy. He joined the Army out of high school, becoming an outdoorsy guy who loved taking on adventure. Whether it be kayaking down the Wabash, or eating his weight in Doritos and gummy bears. Bradley moved through the ranks advancing to SPC Bradley Kirchoff, an Army Ranger in the Regimental Special Troops Battalion in the 75th Ranger Regiment at Fort Benning, GA. On Earth he will be missed by all, including his mother, Tammy McCoy; sister, Aerial McGill; Mamaw, Jackie Cochran; and multiple aunts, cousins and other family members. He will join his dad, Brad Kirchoff; uncle, Brian Kirchoff; Papaw, Dennis Cochran; and baby brother, Michael Brian Kirchoff in the after life. Bradley's carpe diem attitude and abundant love for all around him carried him through life. A service to remember and honor his life will take place Thursday May 12, 2016 at 10:00 AM at the Duesterberg-Fredrick Funeral Home with Capt. Brad Kattleman officiating. He will be laid to rest near his father in Memorial Park Cemetery with full military honors provided by the U.S. Army. The family will receive friends Wednesday May 11, 2016 from 5 to 8 PM at the funeral home. If you wish, donations may be made to the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention, or the charity of your choice. In honoring Bradley, we hope everyone can find comfort in memories of him. There will be a gathering following the service to continue the celebration at Blossom Hill, north of Vincennes, Indiana. The family invites all to be with them "There is a storm in all of us, some may never get to see it but we all feel it. Let the lightning strike down those that fought against you, let the thunder bring you home."
