Barry Bradley

This is the story of Barry Bradley. Barry was loved, is missed and will forever be cherished. Barry inherited his fathers sense of humor and had impeccable comedic timing that no one could resist. It was a rare encounter with Barry that did not include laughter. Barryisms became a common term among family and friends.

Barry was born on May 10, 1968, to Hunter (deceased) and Sue Bradley. He was the brother of Jana Keil (Mark), David Bradley (Tuesday Reese) and Jason Bradley (Gina Hatfield).

He was a favorite uncle and a beloved grandson.

Barry loved his daughters, 2nd LT Samantha Turner (Zach) and Sydney Bradley. Many hours were spent with them at Meemaw & Peepaws Place celebrating, playing, riding in the golf cart and swinging in the hammock. Barrys memory and legacy will live on through these two extraordinary young women.

Barry dearly loved his wife Arlene and she loved him the same. They were married for 12 years and created a loving home where family and friends were cared for and always welcome. Barry loved and was loved by his extended family, particularly Arlenemother whom he called Mother Bird.

Barry had a laundry list of careers and hobbies. He had an uncanny gift for numbers. He loved to golf and fish. He worked on boat propellers, was an EMT, a landscape artist, performed under water rescues, researched concrete additives, installed pools, travelled the country, repaired vehicles, drove tractors, raced go karts and loved camp fires. Barry was a storyteller who could laugh at himself and had a giving heart that continues to give even beyond his time here on earth.

Barrys faith in Jesus carried him through some of his darkest days. It was Barrygreatest desire to live a full life, to enjoy his friends and love his family. On July 7, 2018, Barry sought and found eternal peace in the presence of The Lord. Those who knew him, loved him.

Services will be held in the funeral home chapel on Saturday, July 14, at 3 p.m. with Reverend Alan Stewart presiding. The family will receive friends and loved ones from 12-3 p.m. on Saturday at the funeral home.
