Bradley, Fred

Fredrick "Fred" Walter Bradley

December 21, 1946 - July 20, 2021

On Tuesday, July 20, 2021, Fredrick “Fred” Walter Bradley, loving husband, father and “Baba,” passed away at the age of 74.  Fred was born on December 21, 1946 in Seattle, Washington to Fredrick and Alma Baertschiger. He received a Bachelor of Science degree in Zoology from the University of Tennessee, the “real UT,” and a Bachelor of Science degree in Accounting and Master of Business Administration from the University of Florida. On October 21, 1978, he married Patricia “Patti” Louise Kelly. They raised two children, Paul and Laura. Fred was a selfless man – the best husband, father and friend. He traveled to seventeen countries during his career in International Accounting. Fred was known for his charm, quick wit and intelligence – he was always the smartest man in the room. He will be greatly missed.

Fred is survived by his wife, Patti; son, Paul; daughter, Laura; son-in-law, Lorenzo; and grandchildren, Madeline and Aiden. Although Fred was an only child, he considered his Florida in-laws to be his brothers and sisters.

He was preceded in death by his father, Fred, and his mother, Alma.

A funeral service will be held at 10:00 a.m., Thursday, July 22, 2021 at Turrentine-Jackson-Morrow Funeral Home, 2525 North Central Expressway in Allen, Texas.  Interment will follow at Ridgeview Memorial Park in Allen.

I was one that had the privilege of working with Fred in International Accounting for a number of years. Fred was one of the nicest guys that I ever worked with, but also one of the smartest and a quick thinker as well. Very charming too! He will be missed. My thoughts and prayers go out to the Bradley family. Leon Tylenda, July 23, 2021 I'm so sorry for you, Paul, and your family's loss. I know no matter what the circumstance we are selfish and want our precious loved ones with us always. But he is in a much better place with no confusion or pain. You will be in my thoughts and prayers during this difficult time. Wylene Landrum, July 22, 2021 Dear Fred, It seems only yesterday that our friendship began and continued to grow as we interfaced in different places around the world. I have missed you dear friend; a feeling now made larger and sadder by your passing. Yes, you always were the smartest one in the room, and I learned much from you Fred, and now a better man for it. Your ole buddy, John John Pearce , July 22, 2021 I had no better friend, mentor, brother, colleague than Fred. He had a huge influence on my life and career, for which I’ll be forever grateful. Love you like a brother, Fred. Rest In Peace! Jerry Lane, July 21, 2021 Paul, I am so sorry for your loss. You and your family are in my prayers.
