James Samuel “Sam” or “Boo-boo” Bradley, 62, Harrodsburg, KY, died , Sunday, August 28 at the Healthpark Hospital, Ft. Myers, FL.. Sam was preceded in death by his parents, Rev. Lonnie Bradley and Willa Mae White Bradley and his son Joseph Lonnie “Joey” Bradley.

He was a part of a special group of “Brothers” that gave him strength and encouragement: Jay Mattingly, Michael Osborne, Richie Hamilton, Jeff Sidebottom, Ellery Milburn and Brad Settles. He was a retired auditor for the State Revenue Department, but coaching football at Woodford County and Danville High Schools were some of his best years. Sam Struggled with the complications of sarcoidosis, which included numerous hospitalizations, rehabs, surgeries and procedures. He fought valiantly through each one, more that many humans could ever do. In every situation, Sam became a favorite of the doctors, nurses, tech and other patients. In spite of the pain and disappointments, he always had a positive spirit that he shared. Most were in awe of his courage and determination. One of the greatest pains Sam Suffered was the loss of his precious son, Joey. Praise the Lord, they are reunited. Sam was baptized at an early age, but revived his relationship with the lord in his later years and sought to live a live reflective of God’s Grace and love. He believed in Heaven and that he would have a restored body with legs that were strong so he could walk again. Last year Sam lived in Florida and was loved by his friends and community. He made an impact with his joy and love. Sam will be missed by so many, but, he is healed and happy now.
