Lee Glen Bradley, age 81, passed away on October 2nd, 2022, after an extended period of ill health.
Lee was born October 7th, 1940, in Sterling, Utah to Glen Charles Bradley and LeVell Funk Bradley in a log cabin belonging to his grandmother, which was the custom in those days. He was raised in Annabella, Utah. His early schooling was in a tiny, two room school, the little room for 1st, 2nd, and 3rd graders and the big room for 4th, 5th and 6th graders. Even with those limitations, he received an excellent education (though he was often punished by the Teacher for being left-handed!)
He spent his early childhood days fishing on the Severe River and rabbit hunting in the wide-open spaces of Anabella. In 1952 he and his family moved to Logan, Utah. He graduated from Logan Junior High School and Logan High School, lettering in football, swimming and track. He held various positions in school, such as President, Vice President, “Most Preferred Boy”, Assembly Chairman, and others. He was an Eagle Scout, Charter Member of the Boy Scout Order-of-the-Arrow, and Certified Waterfront Director from Lake Arrowhead School, and spent his summers as Waterfront Director at Bear Lake Camp Hunt and Camp Wilderness for five years.
Lee was a member of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints. He lived his life with integrity and hard work. After graduating from high school, Lee attended Utah State University, joining Sigma Chi Fraternity. In 1959 Lee had an opportunity to join the Plumbers and Pipefitters Union, choosing this as his lifelong career. He traveled to many states working on power houses, petrochemical and gasoline refineries, soda ash refineries and construction jobs such as Minute-Man Missile silos and buildings at USU. He quickly advanced to positions of Superintendent, General Foreman, and Journeyman Plumber. He was a proud, lifetime member of the Plumbers and Pipefitters Union.
Lee married Dixie Marie Rice, his high school sweetheart, in 1959. They had two children, Dixie Lee Maughan and Terry Glen (Kareen) Bradley, having 9 grandchildren and 17 great grandchildren. He is preceded in death by both his parents and all three of his sisters, Twila, Leslie Ann, and Deanna. He is survived by his wife and both children.
Lee was blessed with many talents and accomplishments. He loved to entertain and play his guitar and brought enjoyment to family and friends. He had an endless desire to read, remembering everything he read with his photographic memory. He had an impressive library of over 1000 books all of which he had read several times. His greatest gift to all those around him was his wonderful, spontaneous, unmatched, quick sense of humor.
We will miss that joy and laughter that he gave to everyone.
His wife, Dixie, and the family would like to express deep appreciation to all who were with Hospice and the Social Workers, for their amazing care, guidance, and support.
