Brad Poindexter Death, Obituary – Bradley Warren Poindexter, 55, a resident of Le Roy, Illinois, died away on Friday, June 2, 2023, at the OSF Richard L. Owens Hospice Home in Peoria, Illinois. He was surrounded by his devoted family at the time of his passing. On January 15, 1968, Brad Poindexter joined his parents, Joseph W. and Alma Darlene Poindexter, in the world in Normal, Illinois. He spent his childhood in Le Roy, Illinois, and when he was an adult, he began working at the Poindexter IGA alongside his father and great uncle.
These formative years were crucial for him since they were when he learnt the importance of virtues such as hard work, kindness, and service. In 1986, he received his diploma from Le Roy High School, and the following year, he attended Cincinnati Bible College. There, he fell in love with the woman he would spend the rest of his life with, Lynne. After getting married on December 8, 1990, they initially made their home in Cincinnati, Ohio, but eventually moved to Le Roy, where they brought up their three sons.
Brad joined the Carpenter’s Union in 1993, the same year he received his certification as a Journeyman Carpenter and began working in the commercial construction industry in the capacity of a Carpenter/Superintendent. On May 26, 2023, after a career spanning thirty years, he took his retirement officially. At the time of his retirement, Brad was working as a Carpenter Superintendent for CORE Construction, where he was widely appreciated for his role as an important contributor to the company.
Brad was raised in the Le Roy Christian Church throughout his childhood, and he made the decision to put his faith in Jesus Christ at an early age. He held in high regard the legacy of faith that had been passed down to him and endeavored to honor God via the manner that he conducted his life. During the course of his life, he volunteered his time in a number of different ministries.
Teaching in the KidsView Program at Eastview Christian Church in Normal, Illinois, where he had been a member for the previous twenty-two years, was one of his very favorite positions. He had been a member of the church for the previous twenty-two years. The faith that Brad had was genuine. He replied to the news of his illness in a way that not only demonstrated his belief in God but also helped his family carry on by saying, “God is either going to make me better, or He is going to make me perfect.” (When he heard the news about his illness).
Brad Poindexter was the kind of man who put the needs of others above his own. When he came upon a situation in which assistance was required, he never hesitated to offer it. He fixed whatever was broken while maintaining a humble attitude and beaming smile while mowing countless yards, plowing many driveways, shoveling kilometers of sidewalks, and fixing whatever else was wrong. He supported the sporting teams at Le Roy High School, coached baseball at the Little League level, and was an alderman for the City of Le Roy. He was an active member of his community.
Brad was an avid supporter of the Pittsburgh Steelers and loved watching a wide variety of sporting events, such as football, NASCAR, golf, basketball, and baseball. The simple pleasures in Brad’s life included activities such as going for a ride on his motorbike on a Sunday afternoon, playing a round of golf on a Saturday morning, savoring a cup of coffee that had just been brewed, and going jet skiing on the lake during family holidays. In addition to that, he was a skilled artisan.
He displayed his abilities by constructing and repairing homes, as well as by restoring family artifacts and producing one-of-a-kind pieces from them. Having a family, on the other hand, was more important than anything else. Brad was the epitome of a devoted spouse and a gentleman. He showed his wife respect and care by doing things such as opening doors, holding an umbrella for her, and extending his hand for her to hold.
He possessed a strong work ethic, which provided his family with stability and support for their needs. He was a devoted son and brother who held a deep appreciation for his ancestry. As a very devoted father, he encouraged each of his boys to pursue their individual passions and supported them in doing so. Not only did he take great pleasure in being a father to his three sons and a devoted father-in-law to his sons’ stunning spouses, but he also took great pleasure in being a grandfather to his five adorable grandkids.
His mother Carol Lynne Larson, his father-in-law Craig Whiting Larson, and his niece Hannah Soper all passed away before Brad. Brad was predeceased by his father, Joseph William Poindexter.
