Cullen Bradley "Brad" Rasberry, 73, Vinton

Cullen Bradley "Brad" Rasberry, age 73, of Vinton, Louisiana passed away on Saturday, June 29, 2024 in Orangefield, Texas. He was born on June 29, 1951 in Acadia Parish, Louisiana to the late Amos and Euna Rasberry.

Brad worked as a Union Pipefitter for Local 195 where he graduated the five-year apprenticeship program. His passion was breeding and raising race horses. He loved a night out of country dancing or time spent at the racetrack. He was an avid collector of Roy Rogers memorabilia and enjoyed spending his free time browsing flea markets and seeking out cast iron items and items that brought back memories of his childhood. Willie's Roadhouse was his favorite channel for old country and western music and would spend hours discussing classic country and old time rock-and-roll music with anyone willing to listen.

Brad fought diligently for one year and five months against terminal cancer diagnosis. Todd and Judy Longron, Donnie Bush, and Bubba Hogan would like to send a special thanks to Dr. Fay Johnson (colleagues and staff) of MD Anderson for their patience and assistance with Brad's cancer battle. As well as Southwest Texas Home Health and Southwest Louisiana Home Health staffs for their assistance.

His presence at the race track will be missed along with his phone calls checking in or arguing with friends. He will be dearly missed by those he chose as friends and family.

Brad is survived by his sister, Bridget and her husband Dennis, son, Lane Rasberry and his Aunt Rosie.

Bridget wishes to gratefully thank Judy and Todd Longron of Orangefield, Texas, for the gift of the loving care they generously gave to Bradley while he lived in their home for the duration of his seriously declining health and ministered to his varied needs. "Their help was immeasurable."

Honorary Pallbearers are Todd Longron, Todd Longron, Jr., Donnie Bush, Lewis “Bubba” Hogan, Dalton Hogan, Duane Domingue, Armon Gill and Roxanne Davis.

In lieu of flowers please consider making a donation in his name to a cancer foundation of your choice.

Celebration of Life Services will be held at a later date.
