Lawrence Richard Bradford
1937 - 2023
Lawrence Richard Bradford, beloved father, brother, and friend, went to be with the Lord on February 27, 2023. He was born on October 24, 1937 in Flint, Michigan to Oris Bradford and Carol Marie Henderson. Lawrence proudly served his country joining the US Airforce. He married the love of his life, Sharon, and together shared a beautiful life.
Lawrence enjoyed tinkering with anything that had a motor, but no one was sure if he was able to really fix anything or just made it worse. He was a man of few words with a quiet, calm, and patient personality. A majority of his best times were spent sitting on the porch, coffee in hand, appreciating the silence and taking in all of God's beautiful creations. Lawrence had a good heart and never failed to lend a helping hand when needed. He adored his family, and the memories he was able to share with them.
Lawrence has been reunited with his parents; brothers, Bill Bradford and Don Bradford; and daughter, Theresa Lynn, in God's Eternal Kingdom.
He will be deeply and lovingly missed by his daughter, Laurie Beam and husband, Steve; sons, Kenny Bradford and wife, Tiffany, and Dwane Bradford and wife, Robin; sisters, Caroline and Karen; grandchildren, Corey, Randy, Mikell, Hanna, Andrew, and Stephanie; numerous great-grandchildren; and a host of extended family and friends.
Visitation will be held on Wednesday, March 8, 2023, at Roberts-Martinez Funeral Home from 10:00 am to 12:00 pm. Burial is to follow at Dallas-Fort Worth National Cemetery at 2:15 pm.
