BRADLEY, William (Bill)
1940 - 2021
It is with a heavy heart that Bill's family announces his passing on June 11, 2021 in the Rocky Mountain House hospital at the age of 81 years.
He was predeceased by his loving wife, Sharon Bradley on June 19, 2018, his son, Billy Bradley on February 7, 2017, and his sister Maxine Unger.
He is loved, survived, and cherished by many including his children, Debbie Bradley of Rocky Mountain House, Pam (Dallas) Milford of Drayton Valley, Ann (Trevor) Lukey of Edmonton, and Geoff (Carmen) Bradley of Caroline. Bill is also survived by his 11 grandchildren and 8 great grandchildren, sister Sandy McKinnon and brother Randy Bradley.
In 1988, Bill and his family moved to Rocky Mountain House from the Stony Plain area. He worked with Nova Gas Transmission in Rocky until his retirement in 1997 when he began consulting in the oil & gas industry (as Southern Cross Inspections) which included continuing to do work he loved, traveling, spending time with Sharon and family, and keeping life fun. Bill enjoyed a friendly hello and chat with all who knew him, he loved a good story and a good laugh, he believed in and enjoyed constantly learning, and he valued a solid day of work. He will be missed dearly by his family, friends, and the community.
The family welcomes you to join in a celebration of Bill's life at the Rocky Funeral Home (located 4804 48 Street) on Tuesday July 6, 2021 at 1:00pm.

My condolences to Bill's family, after a friendship of almost 30 years (we met when he came to work in Argentina), I have to say goodbye to a friend.
The pandemic had positive things, one of them was that in March 2020 we began to share with Bill every Saturday a videoconference through Skype, Zoom or Teams, this allowed us to visit each other despite the distance. Bill to his years, always learning new things.
My family and I are going to miss him very much.
Goodbye, a big hug to my great Canadian friend, I'm going to miss you a lot.

Thinking of you at this time; sorry for your loss..
Condolences to Bill’s Family. I will miss seeing him in town. I first met him when he was my Dad’s boss. Years later, I got to know him when he came to the Extra Foods Gas Bar for his Sunday paper and lottery tickets. When I moved on from there, I looked forward to our little chats in the grocery store. I looked forward to seeing him. He will be missed. Thank you for your kindness, Bill. This isn’t goodbye but see you later...
