Bradley Lyle Floberg, 60, of Hillsboro, North Dakota, passed away on Friday, September 9th, 2016 in his home. Born in Moorhead, Minnesota to the late Walter & Alvina (Koval) Floberg, he lived most of his life in Hillsboro and Caledonia.
Brad was a passionate man who enjoyed the simple things in life. He was a very hard worker and proud of what he did during his 37 years as a sugar boiler at American Crystal Sugar.
Brad was extremely loving and proud of his three daughters that he shared with his ex wife Kathi. Sherrie Mills and her husband Rich, of Fargo, Shannon Miller of Fargo, and Katie Nettum and her husband Brandon, of Cummings. Not only was he an amazing father, but he was an extradorinary grandpa to Reagan & Lane (Katie) who loved to spend as much time as they could with Papa Brad.
He is also survived by his sister Kay (Bob) Miller, of Alexandria, SD, Sandy (Darryl) Nohr, of Fargo, ND, and his brother Jerry (Sandy) Floberg, of Dilworth, MN. He was preceded in death by his mother and father Walter & Alvina, his sister Lois, his granddaughter Isabella, and his best friend, Buxton Bob.
In his spare time he enjoyed being with his 3 daughters and their families, being a grandpa, cooking, canning, gardening, and anything outdoors related. Brad always said he wanted a son, but he never knew that God would grant him 3 beautiful daughters who could outshoot anyone, fish like a fisherman, and give him the father/daughter bond he never even knew was possible. During the summer and fall, he loved to show his girls how to take fresh vegetables from the garden and can them so they could take them home to share with their families and friends. Not only did he provide canned goods and cooked meals to his family, but he loved to share it with his friends and neighbors as well. He loved to eat from his garden, but he also loved to fish and hunt to provide for his family and friends, and pass on his traditions to his daughters and grandchildren.
Brad was not only an amazing father, but an incredible father in law. He loved to teach his sons in law about fishing, hunting, shooting, cooking, how to fix things, and mostly, how to treat his daughters right. He was a family orientated man who loved to have his siblings and their families over for any occasion so he could cook for them and they all could tell stories for everyone to laugh along with.
During his lifetime on this earth, he will always be remembered for his generous heart, his warm hugs, his encouraging words, wisdom beyond anyones years, and how much he loved his family. He will be missed by so many, but especially his 3 daughters who looked up to him in every way possible.
To the man who taught us so much and made us who we are, this is not goodbye for now, but see you later.
