FREDDIE RAY BRADLEY
1946 – 2021
How do you sum up a life in just a few words? He wasn’t just a husband, father, son or brother, “he was a brother like no other”. Friends described him as “quite an unforgettable character” and that sums it up! Always ready to great you with a smile, he welcomed strangers and was eager to engage everyone in a conversation. He was the most cheerful carhop that every worked at the Char Pit Drive In during the late 50’s early 60’s in Wurtland.
Freddie Ray Bradley was born in Ashland, KY on October 22, 1946. He grew up on the Boggs family farm in Warnock, KY.

Fred is survived by the love of his life, Regina, whom he married in 1966. They would have celebrated 55 years of marriage in March. He always said “God gave him an Angel to love” when referring to Regina.
