Brian Rex Bradley, 57, of Davidson, North Carolina, passed away in the home that he built and loved on September 23, 2021.
Brian was born in Chicago Heights, IL, on Wednesday, May 13, 1964, to the late Donald and Arlene Bradley. His soul was pure. His heart was kind. The world was a better place with his presence.
Along with his parents, Brian is preceded in passing by his sister, Cindi; his father-in-law, Richard Natzke; and his mother-in-law, Charlotte Natzke.
He is survived by his wife, best friend, and soulmate, Kristin Bradley; his son, Jonathan Bradley; his son, Jaron Bradley and wife, Jenna Bradley, who was always seen as a daughter in his eyes; his dog, Miley; and his grand-dogs, Ranger & Sarge; his sister, Beth Callender (Ken); his sister, Amy Lesniewski (Ron); and Kristin’s sisters, Kim (Jack), Karyn (Craig), Sam (Bill), all of whom loved him like a brother.
Brian was completely and utterly adored by his family. He was the center of their lives, and he worked incredibly hard all of his earthly years to give his family the life he never had but always dreamt of. He never wavered with prioritizing his family over everything. Of all the things he accomplished in fifty-seven short years, he took the most pride in his wife and children.
There was not, nor will there ever be, a love more genuine than that which came from Brian. He was the epitome of goodness, the very best of the best. The light within him made the world a brighter place. He will be immensely missed and never forgotten. His love has left a legacy that knows no bounds. While no longer amongst us in the physical, his spirit will live through the hearts of those who loved him for generations to come. His light will shine forever.
A celebration of life will be held at 5:00pm on Friday, October 1st, at the place Brian cherished the most, his home (143 Burnell Pl, Davidson, NC 28036). The gathering will be casual with no formal attire as those who loved Brian know he lived in soccer shorts and a t-shirt outside of work. Those unable to attend the celebration of life are invited to share written memories and photos of Brian, which will foster continued comfort and peace for his family. Written memories can be mailed to Brian’s home at the address above.
**Guests should park at Shearer Presbyterian Church (684 Presbyterian Rd, Mooresville, NC 28115). There will be a shuttle service to and from the house beginning at 4:45pm.**
The Bradley family is under the care of Raymer-Kepner Funeral Home. Condolences and memories may be shared online at www.kepnerfh.com.
