Let the family know you care by sharing this tribute.
Brent Steven Cady, 34, of Kansas City, MO passed away on May 18th, 2022.
Celebration of Life will be held Friday, May 27th from 3 to 5pm at Heartland Cremation and Burial Society, 6113 Blue Ridge Blvd, Raytown, MO, 64133.
Brent was born on December 18, 1987 in Oxnard, CA. As a military dependent, he then lived in Thurso, Scotland where his atomic-like outgoing spirit began to develop; He lived in Lusby, MD and Locust Grove, GA before moving to Kansas City. Brent graduated from Winnetonka High School in 2005 and studied Auto Mechanics at UTI in Chicago, IL. Brent was a tremendous presence in every room he entered. His colorful antics and laughter demanded attention. He was the type of guy who had his hand in every sort of craft, from mechanics to writing cryptic prose to pottery to climbing trees. He managed to start his own business called KD’s Tree Services, where he worked to improve and grow. All the while he proudly took care of his children. Brent loved his pets. Those who knew him can never know a time where he didn’t have a variety of pets. He kept a tarantula, snakes, hamsters, lizards, dogs and cats…all at different times or at once. His inquisitive mind drove him to learning or dabbling in countless ventures. He became an accomplished trick skater, bicyclist, bowler and soccer player. He enjoyed video games of all kinds to the point of mastering them. He even touched on playing the guitar, archery, writing and welding. It’s impossible to list every interest he had but we can say he was never one to pass an opportunity to try. Brent had a sense of humor that evolved constantly, sometimes off color, sometimes corny. Either way, he enjoyed his own jokes fully whether anyone else did or not. He was a tough guy with a sensitive heart. When he hugged, it was a truly loving hug. Brent loved his family and friends and absolutely adored his girls. Many have felt that love and we are all blessed because of it.

To Bitsy, the girls and remaining family; I have knowing Brent since he was a little boy living in Parvin estates. He and my son Will Roberts remained best friends throughout all these years, never losing touch. I always saw Brent when he was coming to his treatment classes and he always gave me the biggest hugs and never left without telling me he loved me. he was quite awesome with that chainsaw. he did several tree cutting jobs for me on the properties I manage. He was always a kind, polite, respectful young man and I will truly miss him. I would like to offer my sincere prayers and condolences to all of you during this time of grief.
Jesse Hamilton says
I can honestly say, I truly did not get to meet him often enough. I will miss him. It’s a great loss for this world.

brent was my older brother. it’s going to be so tough to do things without him. especially family functions, like the 4th of July. he had a laugh that could fill a room. his energy carried us all to an amazing time, letting us share the beautiful moments together. i miss you, bro
Briana Avalon Dooley says
Oh Brent… I missed you before you ever even gone. Everything is just blurred. I just keep crying. That was a beautiful video though who ever put that together. That was a great choice of music wonderful pairing, and a song I never even heard before that was very suiting. Brent was captivating for sure. It’s from the very first day of meeting him it was memorable to say the least. That’s what was amazing about him each person that he held close to his heart he made sure to let them know that. Whatever bond it was that be made bring that bond he made it very prevalent. He made sure to have that with each and every one of you us. What is the type that enjoyed everything so he made sure to do what it was that you enjoyed while spending time together. And if that means you were a beautician he was getting a haircut or getting his nails done or waxing. If you were the outdoorsy type well that was right up his alley too he came with his gear suited up. If there was a time that Brent knew that you needed a friend or even if you didn’t know that he was there. I really like that photo of the hot sauce because I have a memory and a bond with him with Jim beam and hot sauce hard times and loss good times and bad he was a rock of a man he was solid in my book. I have so much love for Brent from very first meeting him years and years ago. I knew very early on in that friendship that he was a fan of chainsaws without a doubt. I know that there are many stories out there and I know that there’s many stories out there that are about him ticking you off for some crummy thing that he done and I know right alongside those stories are the stories of which he corrected it he didn’t like having a burnt bridge he definitely knew apologies and what they meant for both. He’s done some amazing things in his life. He’s more of a good man than many. I’m really quite shook. I’m going to miss him like I said I missed him before he was gone.
I’m so sorry for ur loss i pray for ur family, friends the strength to get through this tough time. Brent. Was an amazing person heart full of gold, he always wanted to make sure to smile always get that big bear hug, no more Sunday fun days.. my goodness no words can even express. God rest in peace you will always carry a spot in my heart. Rest in peace Brent. You will for sure be missed. Love courtney
