Wallace Kenwood Bradley died in the early morning of Feb. 14, 2016, just 28 hours after his beloved wife, Willa, passed away. They both resided at the MorningStar Assisted Living Center in Idaho Falls.
Brad as many of his friends and family called him was born September 16, 1934 in Shelley, Idaho, the son of Wallace M. Bradley and Bertha Johnson Bradley.
After graduating from Shelley High School, Brad worked for Western Electric until being drafted into the U.S. Army where he was stationed in Panama. While serving there he was sent to Chile in 1960 to lend aid after the Chilean earthquake. After serving in the Army, he returned to Pocatello and worked for Bell Telephone Company as a field supervisor.
Brad married Lou Probst (deceased).
Brad was a ham radio operator and loved talking with people worldwide. He and Willa both enjoyed gardening, fishing and camping. Their favorite spot was in the Mackey, Idaho area.
Brad and his wife Willa lived in Pocatello, Idaho for several years until he retired at the age of 58. They then moved to Island Park, Idaho where they lived for many years enjoying the life that they loved in such a beautiful area. After several years there, they made the move to Ammon, Idaho. Later, for health reasons they moved to the MorningStar Living Center.
