On Saturday morning April 6, 2019, Brad Alan Hecht was escorted to Heaven on the wings of angels to spend eternity with his Heavenly father. Brad was born on May 5, 1972. He graduated from Kokomo High School in 1990. He was employed at the GM plant in Kokomo until he transferred to the GM stamping plant in Marion where he was a proud member of the UAW.
His mother Belinda Hecht, father Bob Roberts (step-mom Deb), half-brothers Rodney Butler and Greg Roberts, Daughter Brailey Hecht, stepdaughter Sanaa Carden, and the love of his life Misty Fawbush (daughter Kaylee and parents Lowell and Dianna Evans) along with his dog Jax survive him. Also surviving are his Grandparents Willis and Juanita Hecht and Ruth Roberts, Uncles Bill Hecht (Judy), Dave Roberts and Tom Roberts along with several loving cousins.
Brad enjoyed riding his Harley with Misty and all of their amazing friends. He loved boating, fishing and listening to music recorded on vinyl records. Above all Brad loved his family. He loved spending time with, surprising and spoiling Brailey, Sanaa and Misty. He absolutely loved his new puppy Jax. He loved helping his mother around her house and spending time with her. He enjoyed spending time with his dad and step mom at the lake. He especially cherished the time he spent going to the races and reminiscing with his Grandpa Hecht about old races and past racecar drivers thru pictures and videos. He loved his Grandma Hecht’s world famous pancakes but enjoyed the conversations with her while she was making them even more.
Brad enjoyed every minute of his life to the fullest. He never met a stranger. He always greeted everyone with a smile and his contagious laugh. He will be dearly missed by all of his family, friends and coworkers.
Funeral service will be held at 10:30 am Friday April 12, 2019, at Shirley & Stout Funeral Home & Crematory, 1315 W. Lincoln Road, Kokomo. Burial will follow in Kokomo Memorial Park Cemetery. Friends are invited to visit with the family from 4-8 pm Thursday at the funeral home. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made in Brad’s memory to Shirley & Stout Funeral Home for an education fund for his daughter, Brailey.
