Kirk Bratton Obituary

Kirk Douglas Bratton, 60 of Arnold, MO passed away Friday, January 5, 2024, at his residence. Kirk was born October 25, 1963, to parents Jerry and Gracie (Eads) Bratton, who preceded him in death.

Kirk was a loving Father and Grandfather. He was employed at Anheuser Busch for the past twenty-three years. One of his favorite pastimes was learning anything related to history. Kirk enjoyed hunting, playing golf and spending time with his family. He was especially happy going to the driving range with his children. On weekends, Kirk spent his time with his three children, their spouses and his grandson enjoying family meals. He kept everyone entertained by telling funny stories, jokes and spreading laughter. Kirk had a fondness for scary movie nights as well as preparing for an apocalypse of any kind. He was often found shopping for pocketknives to add to his collection. Most importantly, he lived for his kids.

Kirk is survived by his children: Kelsey Bratton-Ward and husband Gary, Whitney Bratton-Loud and husband Don, Mason Bratton and wife Michaela (Rempel); grandson: Augustus Bratton.
