Walter Lynn Bradley, 63, of Bon Aqua, Tennessee, died peacefully at his home on Friday, September 8, 2017, surrounded by his wife and two daughters after a long battle with cancer.
He was born August 4, 1954, in Little Rock, Arkansas to Ralph Lee Bradley, Sr. and Edith Minnie Mann. He was the youngest of 4 sons.
Walter married Katherine Marie Harper in Shirley, Arkansas on August 24, 1973, while serving in the United States Army. A daughter, Heather Elizabeth Bradley (Orange) was born in Landstuhl, Germany on February 1, 1975, a second daughter, Amber Marie Bradley (Holt) was born in Heber Springs, Arkansas on March 4, 1977, while living in Shirley, Arkansas.
Walter was a masonry contractor for 40 years. He and his family lived in Kansas, Oklahoma, Arkansas, and Tennessee. He also worked for the Nissan Corporation in Smyrna, Tennessee for 10 years.
While his daughters were growing up, they became great softball players. The family would travel on weekend so the girls could play softball. Either on the field or on the sidelines, Walter was ALWAYS there cheering and coaching Heather and Amber on.
Walter would tell anyone that who would listen that his 5 greatest accomplishments were his grandchildren; Dalton Troy Cotsar McGlasson, Samuel Bradley Ustigah McGlasson, Shelby Lynn Holt, Ellie Marie Holt, and Jackson Paul Harper Orange.
If a man’s worth on this Earth is measured by his family and friends, then Walter was rich indeed.
Preceding him in death were his father and mother, two brothers, Floyd Edward Bradley and Ricky Curtis Bradley.
He is survived by his wife, 2 daughters, 5 grandchildren, brother, Lee Bradley, wife Sue, 2 nieces ,3 nephews, and a host of family and friends.
