Charles Kerry Bradford

January 16, 1934- October 24, 2021

Charles Kerry Bradford, deeply loved husband, father and grandfather went home to God on October 24, 2021. "Charlie" was born in 1934 in Illinois to Walter "Bim" Bradford and Mary Hesse where he was raised with his sisters Barbara and Betty and brothers Walt, Jimmy and Larry.

Charles is survived by his best friend and wife of 61 years Rita. They were true partners who were inseparable as they enjoyed raising their family, playing golf, many travelling adventures for business and pleasure, hosting parties including breakfast club with their grandkids and finding another new house to move to in Arizona, California, Illinois or Wisconsin.

He is also survived by his four children Kelly (Mike Dobersch), Kerry(Betsy), Marty (Sheila) and Jeneen (George Hartshorne) and his ten grandchildren: Krista, Andie, Charlie, Hogan, Alec, Kieran, Rory, Allison, Audrey and Aimee.

I was sad to hear of Charlie's passing. We were closest friends at St. Gertrudes and then at Loyola Academy. May God bless all the Bradfords.
