February 1, 1912 – December 29, 2010

Bradley passed away peacefully on December 29, 2010 at Noric House in Vernon. He was predeceased by Lydia, his wife of 55 years, in 1991, his parents and five sisters. He is survived by two brothers; Jim (Audrey) of Winnipeg and Pat of Kelowna; one sister, Edith (Cliff) Graham of White Rock; sister-in-law, Rose Smith of Mildred, SK; two sons, Jack (Angela) and Jim (Dianne), both of Vernon; two daughters, Dorothy (Gerry) Sengotta of Vernon and Margaret (Frank) Salfi of Vancouver; six grandchildren, Randi Pattermann, Craig Shore, Darrin Shore, Kari Belanger, Nicole Sengotta and Tammy Pollock; eleven great grandchildren and numerous nieces and nephews.

Bradley grew up in Saskatchewan and moved to the Okanagan with Lydia in 1936, living first in Kelowna and then in Oyama where he worked for Vernon Ellison in the orchard. He was a self taught jack of all trades and he could fix almost anything that he put his mind to and also could operate any type of machinery. In 1957, Bradley and Lydia purchased an orchard in Vernon. Through the years he also managed orchards for other people until he retired.

Bradley and Lydia enjoyed many holidays in their motor home and visits to Hawaii. Bradley had a long and full life and will be dearly missed.

The family wishes to extend heartfelt thanks to Dr. Dippenaar and the wonderful staff at Noric House who were so helpful and caring and gave Bradley outstanding care.
