Ronald Frank Bradley

Ronald Frank Bradley, “Palmroy/Ronnie” went to be with our Lord and Savior on Thursday, September 15th, 2022, in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania where he lived with his son and family.

Our dearly beloved Ronald was born on January 2, 1946, to the late James and Vera Kelley, grandparents, Greatheart & Annie Victoria Gibson, a baby sister, Ann Victoria, and a special niece Shakiera Bellamy.

Ronnie was raised in Trenton, New Jersey, and graduated from Trenton Central High School in 1963. After high school, he served  faithfully in the United States Navy for four years. After the Navy, Ronnie worked several jobs before employment with General Motors. In 1994 he transferred to Defiance, Ohio when General Motors closed the Trenton plant. Ronnie retired in 2009 after 38 years of service where he was known for never missing a day of work.

Ronald participated in and received many awards in Body Building and Weightlifting Competitions in New Jersey and was a “daily fixture” of his favorite Gym or YMCA in New Jersey and Ohio.

Lovingly, Ronnie is survived by his son, Sean Bradley, dear friend, Pamela Kinsey, both of  Philadelphia; siblings, George Bradley, Trenton, David Bradley (Vermal), Jacksonville, FL., Victoria Davis (Charles), Willingboro, NJ., Rosalind Amir, and Lynne Kelley, both of Charlotte, NC; Aunts, Helen McRae, Geraldine Parrish, and Ruth Gibson, several nieces, nephews, cousins, a host of friends/family in Defiance, Ohio, and his extended family The Kinsey’s.

“Treasured Memories” are an Honor! Ronnie’s Friends in Trenton and Defiance have always had the highest respect for their friendship.

An Angels Wings
You were taken
But in our Hearts
You will always stay!
Lovingly, the Family
