Fishing 02

Jerry Lee Bradley

November 5, 1953 ~ July 24, 2022 (age 68)


Our best friend and father, Jerry Lee Bradley, 68, rode off into the heavens at sunrise on July 24, 2022. He was laughing and joking up until he took his last breath. 

Jerry Lee Bradley, loving father, brother, friend, was one of a kind cool dude with a huge heart, who loved fishing, hunting, being outdoors, country cruising and watching his grandchildren play sports. 

Jerry was born and raised in Zanesville, OH. He has traveled around the country but always said there is no place like home.  He loved working in his garden and showing off his beautiful flowers. 

Jerry went to Maysville High School and retired from Owens Illinois Brockway.  He was a wild free spirit and did what he wanted, how he wanted and did it with a smile. He was always cruising on his Harley Davidson Motorcycle, telling jokes around town, and fishing every chance he could get. He had so many friends everywhere he went, his sense of humor, love for life and friendship will be greatly missed by many. 

He is survived by his daughters; Jerra Sayles, Jody Bradley, Jamie (Garrett) Werkman: six grandchildren; Jayla, AJ, A’yonee, Leo, Paris and Bradley:  his brothers; Dave Bradley and Steve (Becky) Bradley: sister Ellen Barrett: many nieces, nephews, relatives, friends and his beloved cat Franky. 

He is preceded in death by his mother Lois Bradley Bost and father Bill Bradley, three brothers; Jeffery Leo Bradley, Michael Bost (Pooh) and Tom Bost and stepfather; Norman Bost.

As Jerry would say:

“I’ll see ya on the next ride… seeee ya”
