DHS Grad, Former Resident Brad June Passes At 56

Former Dorchester resident and 1976 DHS graduate Bradley Dean June, 56 years of age, of Concordia, Kan., and formerly of Pilger, Neb., passed away peacefully surrounded by family on Monday, July 28, 2014 in Concordia. He was born on May 31, 1958 in Concordia to Boyd “Toby” and Patricia (Cassel) June. 

UPDATE: The June family is having an open house to celebrate and remember the life Brad June on this afternoon and evening, August 1, from 4 p.m. until 8 p.m. at the Dorchester Community Building. Please join the family in remembering good times and treasured memories.

Brad graduated in 1976 from Dorchester High School in Dorchester, Nebraska. He loved agronomy and worked at several different co-ops in both Nebraska and South Dakota. Brad’s favorite time of year at work was during the spring/planting season when he put in many hours in the field. He married Brenda Fees on March 6, 2012 in Stanton, Nebraska. Recently, Brad showed his strength once again as he survived the direct hit from the tornado that hit Pilger, Neb. on June 16, 2014. Brad enjoyed fishing, riding his Harley, his dogs, and especially spending time with his grandchildren.

Brad is survived by his wife, Brenda; four children, Josh June and wife Becky of Milford, Sarah June of Lincoln, Spencer June and wife B.J., Hannah June, both of Dorchester; five step-children, Brendon Hauder of Lincoln, Breanna Zavalaga and husband G.C. of Vista, California, Brandel Hauder and wife Taylor of Milford, Broderick Hauder of Pleasant Hill, Brittani Hauder and fiancĂ© Richard of Lincoln; seven grandchildren; mother, Patricia June of Concordia; two brothers, Brian June and wife Lynette of Columbus, Jason June and wife Jody of Malmo; 2 sisters, Cindi Etten and husband John of Fort Collins, Colorado, Laurie Heise and husband Tim of Lincoln; and several nieces and nephews. 

He was preceded in death by his father, Boyd “Toby” June on May 20, 2007.

Private Memorial Services will be held at a later date. There will be no visitation. Memorials are suggested to the American Cancer Society in care of the funeral home. Chaput-Buoy Funeral Home in Concordia is in charge of arrangements.


  1. I'm very sorry to hear this, passing at only 56 years of age with such young grandkids.

    Brad and his wife raised very good kids. I'm glad Spencer in back in Dorchester. He's a real solid person and father.

  2. My sympathies to the June family and the kids. So sorry.

    It's sad to think Brad passed at a young age due to pancreatic cancer, the same horrible disease that took the life too soon of Shannon Wenz a few years ago, who lived only a block or so away from Brad when he was in town.
