BRADLEY, Larry P., died in Tucson, Arizona, on January 21, 2017, of Parkinson's disease. He was seventy-one years old. He is survived by a wife, Johanna Bradley; two brothers, Richard Bradley and Steven Bradley, and his adored Irish Wolfhound, Sofie. Funeral Services were held in Sunset View Cemetery, El Cerrito, California, where he was buried in a double grave he and his wife had chosen, quite close to where her parents lie. Larry's mother and father, Marion Bebb Bradley and Gilbert Francis Bradley, were Arizonans, although Larry was born in 1945 in Bryan, Texas, near the airbase where his father was a flight instructor. Larry's boyhood was spent first in Phoenix and then in Tucson, where he graduated from Rincon High School. While in high school, he was an exchange student in Indonesia, under the auspices of the American Field Service. Larry graduated from Yale University, where he served in R.O.T.C. for four years. He earned a Ph.D. at The Claremont Graduate School, in Claremont, California. In 1971, he married Johanna Rediger Bradley, known as Jana by family and friends, and they left immediately for London, England, where they lived for a year while he worked on his Ph.D. thesis. In 1975, he was hired by Butler University in Indianapolis, Indiana, where he taught for twenty-five years, before retiring to Tucson. He was much loved by family and friends and will be greatly missed. Remembrances of Larry may be sent to the charity of your choice
