John Ernest Bradley, Jr of Pickens, SC, went to be with the Lord on February 12, 2018, surrounded by his loved ones. His death followed several weeks of a recent illness.

Johnny was born in Anderson, SC on October 13, 1955, the first and only son of John and Carol Bradley Sr. of Powdersville, SC. He was married to Floyce Brown Bradley until her death in 2006.
