Wade Jonathan Ladely was born in Ord, NE to David and Patricia (Sokol) Ladely.

After graduation, Wade began his career as a truck driver and moved to Bridgeport in 1995, working for Bob Sterkel. He then started his own business, Ladely Trucking, transporting cattle from coast to coast. His business has resulted in many long-standing friendships across the country. Wade’s hobbies included hunting, fishing, and traveling, even though it wasn’t in the truck. He developed a passion for buying, selling and restoring trucks. He also loved the ranching lifestyle, building his own cattle farm. Wade was proud of his community, including becoming a Shriner, getting involved in many causes and always helping out. He didn’t have the ability to say no, especially to children or anyone in need.
