Bradley J. Barsness

Bradley J. Barsness entered into his eternal rest Monday, Jan. 24th, 2022. He had just turned 55 the week prior. The loss of Brad will be felt deeply by all who knew and loved him. Bradley was born to Allen and Lilla Barsness in Plentywood, Mont. on Jan. 17th, 1967.

Brad grew up in a farming community with siblings and cousins to have great adventures with! After graduating from Flaxville High School he attended Montana State University where he studied mathematics and computer science. While attending university he worked for Dorothy Kincaid at Stageline Pizza. Dorothy recognized what a hard worker he was and offered to help him start his own pizza restaurant in another state. Looking for a university town, he picked Cheney, Wash., and became a dedicated Eastern Washington University Eagles fan.

It was here in Cheney that he met the love of his life Syrie Hollen and her son Colton Wynn. They married and had 5 more children, and opened a second pizza restaurant in Airway Heights. At this time they joined the Kincaids and other Stageline owners in a new brand, Rosa's Pizza. Later they purchased the bowling alley and moved the pizza operation there to provide sit-down dining.

Supporting his children in all their various activities was his pride and joy. Additionally, he enjoyed hiking, water skiing, and his all-time favorite, Eastern Football. Eagle football just won't be the same without him on the sidelines cheering the "Eags" on to victory! He also loved supporting the West Plains community and feeding us all world-famous Rosa's cheese bread and Rosa's Ranch.

A funeral service was held on Jan. 29th.

He is survived by his wife Syrie, his children; Colton Wynn (Danielle and daughter Ainslee), Casey (Abbie), Kyle (Mykal), Rachel, Karl, and Conner as well as his sister Brenda Vathauer (Eric), Brent Barsness (Stacy) and Nephews Jared, Jacob, Jalen, Jordan, Hunter, and Dane. He is preceded in death by his parents, Allen and Lilla, and his brother Bryon.
