Bradley L. Karl, 77, of Neillsville, WI, died Wednesday, Nov. 8, 2023, at Turner Integrity Care in Thorp, WI.

     Bradley Louis Karl was born on May 10, 1946, to Brookes and Lila (Knoop) Karl in Neillsville, WI.  He attended school in Neillsville, graduating from Neillsville High School in 1964. He moved out to West Virginia where he worked in road construction for a few years. He also spent many years at Figi’s and finished working at Lynn Dairy.  

     Bradley was a little rough around the edges, but he had a heart of gold. He loved visiting his nieces and nephews and later his grandnieces and nephews. He loved to read paperback western novels, and he collected scale model tractors. He used to walk to Kwik Trip almost every day for snacks and his MelloYellow. He loved going to farm and model tractor shows.

     He is survived by two brothers, Russell (Susie) Karl of Neillsville and Roger (Debbie) Karl of Weston; two nieces, Stacey (Daniel) Tull of Washburn and Shelly (David) Schutz of Neillsville; and two nephews, Eric Sipes of Phoenix, AZ, and Chad (Cassie) Karl of Wausau. He is further survived by grand- nieces and nephews, Sierra (Noah) Osswald, Derrick (Jamie) Richard, Brendon Krueger, Kyle (Cat) Krueger, Alyvia Tull, Lilly, Lyla and Piper Schutz, Briella Siriani, Walter Osswald, Ava Richard and Maverick Karl. He is also survived by numerous cousins.
