Kenneth Lynn Bradley
March 09, 1935 - March 25, 2008
Fun-loving father, grandfather, neighbor and friend
Kenneth L Bradley was a very loved man. Even as ornery as he was, we all loved him. He lived in the same house with his wife Diane C Bradley (Kangas) and his two boys Jeffrey and Richard for 41 years. He was a hard working man until he was forced to retire due to Diabetes, but it never stopped him from doing all that he loved, especially telling others how to do things the ''right way".
He loved his wife Diane very much and they enjoyed going on many vacations, the last of which were to Australia and a cruise to Alaska. Those were the last trips that Ken and Diane went on before we lost Diane to Cancer in 2004. Since the death of his wife he then devoted his time to his children and grandchildren, which were the apples of his eye. He loved to tease with his grandchildren and spoiled them rotten.
His family was always important to him and he liked to entertain and be around family and friends. He loved to go to his summer property, which was lovingly called "The Lot", every chance he got. He had many hobbies and interests some of which were electronics, computer games, movies, and animals.
He is survived by his two sons Jeffrey and Richard Bradley, his daughter Javida, son in law Drew, daughter in law Kimberly and his grandchildren Daniel, Christopher and Amber, and numerous other close friends.
We are sad to see him leave us but rejoice in the fact that he is reunited with the love of his life, his wife and our Mom, Diane.

Memorial services will be held April 5th, 2008 at University Lutheran Church in the main sanctuary at 11:30 A.M. 1604 NE 50th ST Seattle WA 98105.
When I'm Gone
When I come to the end of my journey
And I travel my last weary mile
Just forget if you can, that I ever frowned
And remember only the smile.
Forget unkind words I have spoken;
Remember some good I have done.
Forget that I ever had heartache
And remember I've had loads of fun '
Forget that I've stumbled and blundered
And sometimes fell by the way.
Remember I have fought some hard battles
And won, ere the close of the day.
Then forget to grieve for my going,
I would not have you sad for a day.
But in summer just gather some flowers
And remember the place where I lay.
And come in the shade of the evening
When the sun paints the sky in the west.
Stand for a few moments beside me
And remember only my best.
