Franklin - David Richard Bradley, 71, of Franklin, passed away on Monday, June 23, 2014.

Born in Macon County, he was the son of the late Howard Bradley and Opal Breedlove Bradley. In addition to his parents, he was preceded in death by a brother, Ronald Bradley. David was a U.S. Air Force veteran and owner and operator of Overland Truck Tire Center.
