Brady James Cullen age 33, of Denver, CO was called to his eternal home unexpectedly on Friday September 9, 2022. Brady was the third born child of four children, born on May 25, 1989 to Tom and Renee Cullen Jr of Weyauwega WI. Brady graduated from Weyauwega Fremont High School in 2008. He spent some time working in La Crosse before he found his home in Colorado.
His professional careers, of which he had many, allowed Brady to practice his ultimate skill, being in the service of others. Whether he was working in a bar, as a real estate broker, as a leasing agent or as an executive assistant, Brady was always putting his customers first. For the first five years of his Colorado adventure, Brady found himself working at the Four Seasons Hotel and private residences where he served as the resident coordinator, and formed strong bonds of friendship with his coworkers and residents alike, all of which he maintained to this day. Following the Four Seasons, Brady moved on to R Investments where he wore many, many hats including: design, property management, marketing, training and working as the executive assistant to the President and CFO of R Communities. Finally, while in Denver, Brady decided to get his Real Estate license where he excelled at staging homes for sale and catering to every need of his clients. Brady’s current venture was to live out his personal life mission, “To live a conscious life, guided by feelings, as an advocate for balance within it, spirituality within its wildness, meaning within its connections, and understanding within my own, recognizing rest as a primary fuel and Earth as synonymous with life.”
Growing up Brady was very artistic, poetic, and creative. He loved reading, going to movies (even if he went alone) and spending time with his friends and family. He was an officer in FFA, in which he won many awards. He participated in track, cross-country and was a percussionist in the band. While in 8th grade track he broke the middle school high jump record in 2004. He has always had a passion for growing plants, and empowered others to go GREEN. He saw the value in every relationship he had with people whether that was professional or personal. Brady loved to entertain, host parties and get-togethers and cook for anyone and everyone. Nothing made him happier than a perfect meal. He loved to travel with his friends, having adventures that spanned across the globe, including Mexico, Canada, Turkey and Seychelles. He knew every lyric to every song (and would sing then all)! He was an amazing writer and speaker who wasn’t afraid to stand up for his beliefs through which he inspired others. He could take the awkward out of any situation and had a laugh that was funnier than any joke he told. He was a supporter of many different organizations that he believed in and had a heart of a servant. Brady will be remembered for his grace and kindness, his passionate self and his adventurous spirit. He was an example to us all as he constantly made time for everyone. He would drop everything and answer your call to have that conversation or give advice, and if you were coming to town it didn’t matter what he had planned, it was rearranged so he could open his home to you and spend time with you. Above all his hobbies and interests, Brady loved his time with friends and family.
Brady was preceded in death by his older brother Thomas Cullen III (Tommy), grandparents Dee Lather and Thomas Cullen Sr. He is survived by his mother (Renee) and father (Thomas Jr); siblings: Westley Cullen (Krissa), Hailey Oehlke (Beau); nieces and nephews: Alexa, Fischer, Archer, Sawyer, Raelyn and Bronson; grandmother: Fran Cullen (Gary Weiss), 19 aunts and uncles, 19 cousins; his best friend/life partner Gina Milano; Gina’s parents: Pat and Debbie Milano; Gina’s siblings: Stephanie (Jesse), Annie (Rich) and Patrick (Megan) and MANY other family and very close friends.
Brady’s drive was to leave this world a better place with a lasting legacy. He certainly has accomplished that.
