Bradley Meredith Hanke, 69, relocated to a gated community on Jan. 12, 2018, after a 16-month battle with cancer. The gated community is beautiful and exclusive, but everyone is welcome. Just use the password "Jesus is my Savior" to gain access.
Born to Orion and Betty Hanke in Minneapolis, Minnesota, on July 24, 1948, he married Sandra Hanson on Dec. 21, 1968. They moved to Kokomo in 1971 when he took a job with Syndicate Sales. He worked there until his retirement in 2016.
Brad was a disciple of Jesus Christ and attended Cornerstone Lutheran Church in Carmel. He showed not only his family and friends but complete strangers what it looks like to live a life as a man of God. Brad would never take credit for his good works, but we are all blessed by them. Many generations know Christ because of him and because of his commitment to God and putting himself last. Brad had a positive impact on nearly everyone who knew him.
Brad was a husband, father, grandfather and friend. He cherished his four daughters and loved his family. He leaves behind his wife, Sandy; daughters, Shaun (Adam) Monhaut, Meredith (Eric) Carmack, Rebecca (Phil) Kopka and Jennifer (Carlos) Martinez; sixteen grandchildren; one great-granddaughter; two brothers and two sisters.
He was proceeded in death by his parents and his brother, Brian.
Services will be held at 2 p.m. Friday, Jan. 19, 2018, at Cornerstone Lutheran Church, 4850 E. Main St., Carmel, with visitation from noon to the time of service. The Rev. Daniel Schumm will officiate. Brad's care has been entrusted to Randall & Roberts Funeral Homes in Noblesville.
In lieu of flowers and donations, we sincerely ask that you simply take time to make a memory with your loved ones.
