BRADLEY--Otis, born 1931 in New York City to Marian Alling and Otis Treat Bradley, spent his school-age years in Manhattan and graduated from the Buckley School, Phillips Exeter Academy, Yale College, and New York University School of Business. He served two years as a navigator in the U.S. Air Force. Upon completing his service, Otis began a long and distinguished career on Wall Street as a securities analyst--first at Spencer Trask, later at Alex. Brown and Sons, and finally retiring in his eighties from Gilford Securities. Institutional Investor named Otis the "quintessential securities analyst" and one of the 100 most influential people in the US financial markets for the magazine's first decade 1966 to 1976. He made the roster of their All- America Research Team four times, twice as the number one analyst in the electronics and technology sector. A prolific writer, Otis penned countless issues of his Growth, Technology and Change research report into which he poured his optimistic belief in the power of technology companies to make money for investors and to improve the lives of every individual. A lifelong tennis and paddle tennis expert, Otis won his reputation as "Mr. August" by setting a Quogue Field Club record for entering 11 different tennis championship tournaments in a single season. In 1955, Otis married Patricia Place with whom he had five children: Christopher, Andrew (deceased), Timothy, Marian and Ruth. He married a second time to Robin Rees. His third marriage to Marcia Fox-Martin Miller lasted the rest of his life, and he adopted Marcia's daughter, Hillary Huber. Summering in Westhampton Beach since childhood, Otis moved to Quogue with Marcia in the 1970s and made his community of family and friends there. Beloved by many, Otis is survived by his wife, Marcia, his sister, Marian, his brother, Michael, his five children, his numerous nieces and nephews to whom he was Uncle O, and his nine grandchildren, to whom he was GranpO and Grandpa Otis.
