Tribute & Message From The Family

Robert A Bradley of Meridian, Idaho passed away at his home in Meridian, ID on December 31, 2016 at 8:45pm at the age of 62. He was born in Adrian, Michigan December 13, 1954. Robert was predeceased by his father, Arthur Bradley and mother, Josephine Bradley, residing in Hamilton, Montana.

Robert is survived by his loving wife Kris Bradley of 44 years. They were married July 8, 1972 in Glen Avon, California. He is also lovingly remembered by his daughter Tonya Bradley, son Robert Bradley and wife Jennifer Bradley, their three children Kohlman, Ella, and Lily Bradley all presently residing in Meridian, Idaho. Robert is also survived by his sister Jo Lyn Kuser, Helena, Montana; brother Mike Bradley, San Diego, California; brother Alan Bradley, Riverside, California; sister Joni Palmer, Stevensville, Montana; brother Paul Bradley, Riverside, California; and sister Jeri Bradley, Helena, Montana.

Robert graduated from Norte Vista High School, Riverside, California in 1972 and played for the school baseball team that finished second in the 1972 CIF state finals. He also played on the championship team that won the Mickey Mantle World Series in 1971. During that final series Robert set a pitching record, striking out 15 batters in one, seven inning game.

Robert was a devoted Christian man who loved to study the Bible and teach it from the time he was born-again at the age of 23 until the Lord called him home.

He was gifted with a self-sacrificing servant's heart and used it to serve His Lord and fellow man in a variety of ways. One of his favorites was the time he spent as a volunteer physical education instructor at the Treasure Valley Baptist School in Meridian, Idaho. He also spent many years teaching Junior Church, College and Career, and the Oldies but Goodies Class. He would also spend many a Sunday afternoons preaching at local nursing homes. His favorite of all time was the years spent running the bus route with his family. The bus ministry was what led him to attend church at Florence Baptist Church where he received the Lord as his Savior and dedicated his life to serving in whatever ministry he was needed in.

Some of Robert's favorite things to do were study history, build something out of wood, especially for his grandkids, go for a drive in his 1949 Cadillac (The Ghost), travel with his wife Kris, spend time with his family and especially taking his grandchildren to Disney Land and Legoland. He also enjoyed decorating his yard Clark Griswold style, each year for Christmas because he knew it brought so much joy to his grandchildren and the neighborhood._

Burial will take place on Monday, January 9, 2017 at 1pm at the Cloverdale Memorial Park located at 1200 N Cloverdale Rd Boise, ID 83713. The funeral service and celebration of his life will follow at Treasure Valley Baptist Church at 2pm with Brother in Christ Joe Pesola officiating with a reception following immediately afterwards in the church gymnasium.

In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the Treasure Valley Baptist School in Roberts name.
