In Loving Memory

Baum, Brady M.

April 12, 1962 - January 15, 2024

Monday, January 15, 2024.

Beloved father of Toni (Robert) Zlatic, Taylor Baum and devoted pup Hazel; loving grandfather of Jack and Amelia; adoring son of Susan Coleman and the late Glenn (surviving Barbara) Baum; cherished brother of Glennon “Joe” (Patricia) Baum and Tracy Baum; dear uncle of Giuseppe, Xander and Devonta. Our dearest cousin, relative and friend to many.

Brady enjoyed his annual fishing trips to Canada with the Steffens. Brady looked forward to many outings down at Bass River resort and loved to hang with the Bass Crew. Brady was involved with Bass from the very beginning and loved helping with anything he could. 

Brady was one of the original sickfest crew who couldn’t wait for that first weekend in March to be out in the elements with his buddies. Rain, sleet, snow, the worst the conditions the better. 

Memorial Day and Labor Day trips to the Black River with family and friends catching crawdads with the kids and kayaking. Papa Brady taught his grandkids, Jack and Amelia to appreciate the outdoors by taking them floating, canoeing, fishing, rides on the 4wheeler and teaching them to catch crawdads. 

Brady loved his dogs, his loyal Dobermans and Hazel who knew how to drink a beer and ride next to him on the 4wheeler. 

Brady truly was a jack of all trades as he designed and practically built our house in Columbia as well as the addition to his cabin in the country. Brady was always the first one there to help his friends and family with anything we needed and even anything he thought we needed help with. Brady always offered his advice and opinions whether solicited or not. 

Brady Baum lit up every room he walked into and never left that room without making a friend. Anywhere he went everyone loved him. Shout out to “Shady Brady”. 

Memorial visitation at Kutis Affton Chapel 10151 Gravois Rd. 63123 on Saturday, January 20, 2024 from 1-5 pm. Interment will be held in private. In lieu of flowers contributions to Ride For A Reason https://ridingforareason.net/donate/ appreciated.

  9. I’ve known Brady ever since he was a kid. He was a great guy. Always a smile and would help anyone without question. You will be greatly missed Brady. RIP, glad you are with your dad now.

  10. I will miss you Brady, we always seemed to bump into each other on so many jobs over our career. It was always great, every time..

  11. Brady was one of the most genuine journeymen I had the pleasure to work under during my apprenticeship. He was the brightest spot during a tough time for me, and found a way to lift my spirits at some of the most miserable jobs I worked. Brady, you made an immediate and lasting impression on me, and I’m thankful for having known you.

  12. This still is not sinking yet. We went to high school together and then worked in the IBEW for almost 40 years. Your were a true and genuine brother and friend. If you didn’t like ‘Shady Brady” then I guarantee you didn’t like me. When Brady passed so did a part of me. Love you my brother, till we meet again…
