Bradford and I were friends many years ago. We shared many classes at RMSHS, graduating in 1960. He was a good friend and an excellent student. I always admired his unflappable personality; nothing seemed to bother him. During the summer of 1964 I had the pleasure of working with his Dad as a general laborer for J.P. Daughtridge Construction Co. I share with his family the sadness of his passing and extend my sincerest condolences to them.
