Weldon Brady, 76 years old, passed away on December 27th, after a courageous three year battle with cancer.
Weldon was born April 18th, 1942 in Sedalia, Mo. to Homer G. and Dorothy (Berry) Brady. He was very proud of his humble beginnings where his family farmed with horses, had no electricity or running water. He was also proud to have grown up with the fine folks in the Lincoln community. He always felt blessed to have had the most wonderful parents.
He graduated from Lincoln High School in 1960 and from the University of Central Missouri in 1964 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Economics. In 1964, he began his successful 30 year banking career at the Citizen’s Bank of Warrensburg. In 1966, upon returning from an active duty stint with the United States Army Missouri National Guard, he was given the opportunity to go to the Bank of Knob Noster. In 1967, he purchased controlling interest of the bank, where he became President and remained for the next 20 years. After banking, Weldon was instrumental in the development of residential and commercial projects in and around Warrensburg, MO as well as enjoying raising cattle.
Mr. Brady served 10 years on the Board of Governors of the University of Central Missouri. He also served many years on the UCM Foundation board, including two terms as President.
