Jim Bradley Obituary, Death – The death of James L. Bradley occurred suddenly on December 23, 2022, while he was surrounded by his family. He was the son of the late James Bradley and Eloise (McCarty) Bradley, and he was born on September 1st, 1952 in Indianapolis, Indiana. Before becoming the owner and CEO of Bradley Caldwell, Jim served as the owner and President of New Holland Supply Co. He is known to be a powerful leader and an excellent business visionary. He participated in a variety of business activities, one of which was serving on the board of directors of Durvet in Kansas City, Missouri, for a period of sixteen years.
His father had established this company. Outside of work, he was an enthusiastic bird hunter and enjoyed participating in shooting competitions using sporting clays. You could always find him cheering for the Chiefs during the football season, and this was true even before they became a successful team. He indulged his passion for automobiles in a variety of ways, from attending NASCAR events to assembling a personal collection of muscle cars. When the weather was nice, one of his favorite things to do was to be out on the water, doing anything from water skiing to taking his family and friends fishing on his boat to going on a leisurely evening cruise.
Bonnie, his wife of 47 years, his son and daughter-in-law Jason and Kathleen Bradley, his daughter Jamie Johnson, and their three grandchildren, Brendan, Eden, and Corbin Johnson, are the only ones to have survived his passing. The Mountain Top Family Church will be the location of the funeral services this coming Friday at noon. On Friday, family and friends are welcome to call from 10 a.m. until the start of the service. At the beginning of January, there will also be a service held in the state of Missouri.
