I was so sad to hear this over the weekend.
Rick was such a fun loving person. Never held a grudge.
so much fun to have around.
when I drove from St Pete to LA in 1981 with my brother and his (now) wife, we stopped in Boulder to see Rick. We drove through the territory, watched rafters floating along offering us beer, fed the chipmunks and laughed a lot! Lots of fun times together.
Rest In Peace, Rick. "Only you"!

Rick had such an entertaining personality and a huge heart. Whatever he did or wherever he went, he always brought joy to everyone. He will surely be missed by many . R.I.P. my sweet friend...
I'm so sad to learn of Rick's passing. Rick and I spoke many times about me as my mother's caretaker, giving me lots of great advice. He was very empathetic. I hold his family in my prayers as they have lost a very caring and smart individual. RIP my friend!
Rick and I grew up just a few houses apart it's been a lot of time together in the lake and after school we will hang out at his parents house we're good guy and he will be missed by all who knew him

Rick and I went back a long way. We were army brats and our fathers served in Vietnam together. We moved down from up north to St. Pete around the same time. We had some wild times together. I'm surprised that we didn't get shot by somebody. Rick's mother used to say, "You are not to hang around with that Evan Riley. He's trouble." Then my mother would say, "You are not to associate with Rick Bradley. You two aren't good for each other." Colonel Bradley, called us both horses asses. My father, the Colonel called us "pecker heads." Eventually, our parents realized that there was no keeping us apart. I could write a book about our wild days.
Hello fellow '71 Alumni..... I was able to find out that Richard S. Bradley will be interred at the Sarasota National Cemetary @ 9810 State Rd 72, Sarasota, Fl 34241.
Please keep your memories of Rick in your hearts and minds tomorrow. June 2, 2021, as he is laid to rest......
Rest in Peace, dear friend... We will miss seeing you in October.....
Fondly, Cheri Wix Hill
Rick was a track team mate, who specialized in the pole vault. But beyond his contribution to our successes on the track & field, he was a friendly guy with a sense of humor that was in the same league as some of the better stand up comics. He was genuinely funny, and easily found what was amusing in many situations...including when we were in Uechi-Ryu Karate classes together just a few years after graduating from Northeast. My prayer is that his family & friends are sensing the comfort of the Heavenly Father through Jesus Christ.
