Bradley W. Riemenapp

September 24, 1971 — May 25, 2023

Bradley William Riemenapp, 51, the man with a zest for life and a golf swing that could make even the most seasoned pro jealous, passed away on May 25, 2023, after a remarkable and courageous fight against cancer. Born on September 24, 1971, to Bill Riemenapp and Nancy (Zahler) Riemenapp of Mount Horeb, Wisconsin, Brad lived a life filled with laughter, love, and unwavering determination to conquer the world-both on the golf course and in the business arena.

Brad was a man of many talents and his journey to greatness began at Mount Horeb High School, where he was an integral part of the first ever Mount Horeb team to win a state golf title. Upon his graduation from high school in 1989, Brad was on a mission to be the best at everything he did. Armed with his trusty nine-iron and infectious grin, Brad set his sights on becoming a professional golfer by attending San Diego Golf Academy. His relentless pursuit of birdies and eagles eventually landed him a spot on the Ben Hogan Tour, where he showcased his skills to the world of golf. His time on the Ben Hogan Tour even led to his short-lived roommate arrangement with the legendary John Daly. Something that all of his friends and family were very enamored with, especially the stories Brad would tell about living with one of the most entertaining golfers of all time.

While Brad’s golfing prowess was undeniable, he soon realized that the putting greens didn’t always translate into dollar bills. Determined to conquer the business world, he shifted gears, never one to back down from a challenge. With the same tenacity that propelled his golf game, Brad embarked on a quest to leave his mark on the corporate landscape. Attaining degrees from the likes of The University of Wisconsin and Northwestern University, Brad instantly became successful in the business world. As Brad venturned into the realms of business, he displayed an unparalleled work ethic, charming colleagues, and clients alike with his infectious enthusiasm and persuasive skills. His friends and family were constantly in awe of where Brad was traveling, what company he was buying up at the time and how well he helped numerous companies grow and make an impact on the world.

Brad’s life forever changed when his title went from being golfer, businessman and friend to the title of “dad.” His daughter Alivia and son Will were the pride and joy of his existence. Brad constantly would talk about their successes on the soccer field, volleyball court and later on in their academic careers. The privilege of watching his kids grow into young adults, while being their biggest fan was Brad’s undeniable source of pride and joy.

Outside the office, Brad’s life took an unexpected turn when he met and fell in love with Kimberly Gordon. After being together for 13 years, their whirlwind romance culminated by uniting in marriage on May 16, 2023, as a symbol of their love and commitment to each other. Together, Brad and Kim built a life of joy and solitude while traveling around the globe and spending precious time at their place in Florida. During this romance, Brad also spent a significant amount of time with his childhood best friend Scott Prochaska…SIGNIFICANT! The two of them shared a friendship unparalleled to any other friendship out there, even making it difficult for “Kimmy” to get her time with Brad as well. Along with Kim, Scott was by Brad’s side throughout the good times and tough times and both forever had a place in Brad’s heart.

Brad’s contagious laughter and jovial spirit will be sorely missed by all who had the pleasure of crossing paths with him. He is most infamously known within his circle of friends for stating “you can’t cage this possum!” He was a friend to all, a mentor to many and constant reminder to embrace life with lightheartedness that only those that knew him could truly appreciate. Whether it was his love for burning bonfires, or his neverending passion for watching the Packers or Badgers, nothing prevented Brad from taking full advantage of all that life presented before him.

Brad is survived by his wife Kimberly (Oshkosh, WI) his daughter Alivia (Madison, WI) his son Will (Oshkosh, WI), his father Bill and Stepmother Kim (LaCrosse, WI) his mother Nancy (Mount Horeb, WI) as well as many friends and family. A celebration of life will be announced at a later date.

Gone, but never forgotten, the legend of the “Possum” lives on!
