ForeverMissed

This memorial website was created in memory of our beloved husband, father and grandpa, Michael Bradley 62 years old , born on March 24, 1955 and passed away on November 22, 2017. We will remember him forever.

A graduate of Parkland High School in 1974, he served 2 years in the U.S. Navy then later was the first in his family to receive a Bachelor's in Education from The University of Texas at El Paso. He was known as "Coach Bradley" to those that he influenced over his 16 years teaching and coaching for Crosby elementary as well as Magoffin, Canyon, and Bassett middle schools. 

He can easily be described as a kind man with an open heart who never hesitated to help people out. He would go above and beyond the call to make sure the job was done, and done correctly. Intelligent, charismatic and a jokester there was never a dull moment. Words cannot explain how much he will be missed, whether small or large, his impact will be felt. He is survived by his lovely wife Barbara, two sons Christopher and Brian, grand-daughter Abigail, and sisters Susan and Betsy.

Happy birthday Dad! I miss you so much, and I wish I was celebrating with you today and watching our favorite shows together. Mom and I talked about the Elton John concert and how much fun that was. Every birthday that is what I think of now because of how happy it made you to go together. Elton played up here yesterday, I wish we could have gone to see it. I hope you went to it and enjoyed the concert again. I love you so much and miss you even more.

I love you dad, and I miss you so much. I know you are watching over everyone, but I really wish I could talk to you or see you on video calls with mom every morning. You would get a kick out of how much Everett has grown. He really makes me appreciate all the hard work you both did for us. I love you so much and I hope I can see you in my dreams so I can give you a big hug and tell you all about how things are going now! Keep watching over mom for me!

This is one of the hardest days to face knowing that you are not with us. I think about you everyday from a simple saying of "Good morning" or "What would my dad do in this situation" and things in between. There are things I would have loved to turn to you for guidance, though I will still ask you anyway, but just to hear your voice say it. I Love You and Miss You more than you know! 
Posted by Barbara Bradley on November 22, 2021
Morning Mike, it's been four years today that you left us. I'm doing ok right now but when I sit down I think I'm going to lose it. There is not a day goes by that I don't think of you and love you and miss you so much. You still are my everything! Thanks for coming by sometimes in my dreams.

Christmas Morning @ the Bradley House

Shared by Christopher Bradley on December 25, 2021
I remember waking up in the mornings on Christmas Day and going over to the tree to see the addition of gifts that were placed by Santa. I would wake up Brian and show him all of the new gifts. It is time to wake the parents!!! So, Brian and I would head down the hallway and whisper who we will wake up as we got to the door. After we wake our parents we would head back to the living room and wait anxiously to open gifts, which couldn't happen until they had their cup of coffee =). So, as we got older, we also got smarter by brewing the coffee before we woke them up at 6am =). 
Well after telling that story to Abby, she made our coffee this morning then came to wake us up to let us know the coffee was ready for us and that Santa left gifts and Rose (family Elf on the Shelf) ate cookies and left a note for next year. Oh how Santa loves Oma's cookies!!!

Christmas Memories: Part 1

Shared by Christopher Bradley on December 25, 2021
I remember the artistry Dad had when it came to decorating from perfecting the lights on the house to the painting of poinsettias, Noel and the Star of Bethlehem on the windows. I can still visualize how he painted everything as if it were yesterday. I remember the luminaries and him using Styrofoam cups over the large bulbs that hung from the house. I remember the endless strands of lights to find the 1 light that was burnt out.
Christmas was a joyful time of year and my dad loved to sit back and see the smiles on our faces when opening presents. I remember handing out gifts and becoming confused on the ones that said "To Hugs ; From Snugs" in which I would always have to refer to my dad and he would smile and point over to mom. I was fortunate to have had those moments and it is something I am able to pass on to my family.
