Peacefully with his wife Marlene by his side, Derek passed away at the Portage District General Hospital December 1st after a short illness.
He is survived by his beloved wife Marlene, son Robert of Comox BC, daughter Jill Bradley-Fugate (Dan) of Fort Myers Florida, and son Danny (Kathy) of Saskatoon, SK. He was predeceased by his parents Frederick and Dorothea Bradley, and his twin brother at birth.
In his younger years, Derek lived in many places with his family as his dad was employed with aircraft maintenance as well as a teacher in that field.
During his working days, Derek owned Bradley’s Esso, and eventually took over and operated Bradley’s City Centre Esso Service. Later on, Derek and his wife owned and operated the Sportsman’s Corner Campground in Westbourne MB.
As a young man, his love of sports became evident. He played hockey with the Plainsman’s Hockey team from Polar Point. Later on in life, he coached hockey for kids at the Koko Platz Community Rec Centre. His love for wildlife and the outdoors included hunting and fishing. Derek was a member of the Portage Country Club, was an avid golfer, and even won a gold medal at pool in the Senior Olympics in Arizona. He was a part owner of Wide Load Hunting Lodge, as well as a cabin in the Narrows. He achieved starting the Pool League at the Herman Prior Centre several years ago. Both Marlene and Derek enjoyed many winters in Arizona and Texas.
Through the years, Derek touched many people with his kindness. He will be greatly missed.
As per his request, there will be no formal funeral service. Flowers are gratefully declined. If friends so desire, donations in Derek’s memory may be made to the Canadian Diabetes Association, P.O. Box 26331 STN BRM B, Toronto ON, M7Y 4R1.
