Wade Jonathan Ladely was born in Ord, NE to David and Patricia (Sokol) Ladely. Wade graduated from Lexington high school in 1992, then went to tech school in North Platte, receiving a degree in auto body repair. After graduation Wade started his lifelong trucking career and moving to Bridgeport in 1995, working for Bob Sterkel. He then started his own business, Ladely Trucking, hauling livestock coast to coast. His business resulted in many lifelong friendships all over the country. Wade’s hobbies included hunting, fishing, and traveling, even if it wasn’t in the truck. He developed a passion for buying, selling, and restoring trucks. He also enjoyed the ranching lifestyle, building his own cattle operation. Wade took pride in his community, including becoming a Shriner, investing in several causes, and always lending a hand. He lacked the ability to say no, especially to kids or anyone in need.
Wade is survived by his fiancé Colynn Beaver of Bridgeport, mother Pat Soenksen of Pierce, father Dave Ladely of North Platte, sisters Amy (C.L) Bellew and Kristi Ladely of Sioux City, brother Wyatt (Stephanie) Ladely of Valentine, nephew Kyle Bellew and niece Audrey Bellew, both of North Platte and numerous extended family and friends.

My deepest sympathy to Wades family. I worked with Wade many times getting paper work in order for the bison being shipped out of Canada. His witty sense of humor and giggle always made my day brighter ...........Wade was an awesome friend and will forever be missed.
